We’ve had quite a hot, humid summer! Are you having trouble controlling your locks in this sweltering heat? We looked for some helpful tips and wanted to share them with you:

  • This may seem counterintuitive, but you should actually moisturize more often.  Properly moisturizing your hair will help fight the effects of humidity.  A lot of products are actually formulated to tame hair without weighing it down.  Apply a deep conditioner twice a week in the shower but only from halfway down to the ends.  Towel dry and then use a product to combat frizz and boost shine.
  • Don’t fight your curls.  Summer hair is more loose and casual anyway–now is the time to play up the natural waves you have.  Save yourself the trouble and put the flat iron away.  Add a diffuser attachment to your blow dryer instead and encourage some soft, pretty curls or just allow it to air dry.  Hair that is damaged from overdrying or stress is even more prone to frizz up on you.
  • Ponytails can be your best friend. Pull hair back in a chic style when humidity does get the best of you. A bun at the nape of the neck is timeless and sideswept ponytails and braids are a huge trend right now.
