How To Deal With Humidity And Your Hair This Summer

Welcome back to beaches, backyard barbecues, and breakfast by the bay. Summer brings with it a plethora of good times, and after a year plus of Covid-19, this summer will be even more fun. But along with the good times of summer, there are also some problems caused by heat and humidity. And nowhere is humidity more obvious than when it comes to your hair. Even if you have pencil straight hair, the humidity of summer can cause it to frizz. If you want to bypass the frizz this summer and look your best for all of your summer events, follow these tips below.

USE A HEAT PROTECTANT

Whether the heat you find is at the beach or coming out of your hair dryer or straightener, you need to give nature a little help with the process of reducing the wild look that summer often brings. We like this Be Protected Thermal Protecting Foam because it penetrates to your hair’s cortex and protects against all heat damage. With its detangler, it also helps to keep your hair away from the frizzies as the summer sun heats up. The foam allows even coverage and the detangler helps immensely. The Protective Prep and Primer also comes in a spray if you prefer this light handed application. It will also protect your hair from dryers or stylers and keep hair more manageable.

EMPLOY A QUALITY SPRAY

You might leave the house with perfectly coiffed hair, but when you are on the go in the summer sun, your perfectly styled hair can fall away. Beat the heat and use this Shine Express Hair Mist, which will give you the light touch of control while also helping your hair to shine. Because it seals the hair cuticle, it will tame your flyaways and frizzies and leave you with more manageable hair. Use a little when you are on the move and you will get a tamer look without having to re-style your whole look.

GET YOUR HAIR UP

If your hair is curly or frizzy to start with, it might be best to give in to Mother Nature and just put it up. Whether a sleek ponytail or a messy bun, trying to work with Mother Nature rather than against her might be the best bet. A cute scarf or clip can dress the look up or down as well, and you will be all set for a restaurant or the beach. And speaking of the beach, never underestimate the power of a cute hat when the humidity rises. Tucking your locks into a baseball cap or a fisherman’s hat will not only keep the sun off your face but also keep your hair corralled.

USE A SERUM

When it comes to hair products, serum is the magician of the bunch, and a little goes a long way. Especially if your hair is dry or coarse, a serum will condition and hydrate it and make it more manageable. When hair gets dried or damaged it is even more susceptible to being frizzy, so keeping it hydrated will definitely be in your best interest. This Liquid Satin Treatment will smooth out your hair while also offering flexibility in styling. The silk protein and silk amino acid base alcohol free product adds luster and shine to your locks while also prohibiting frizz. Getting in the habit of regular serum use will help train your hair to behave.

USE THE RIGHT TOOLS

No matter what hair type you have, using the right tool for the job is half the battle. For instance, using the right hair brush is extremely important, especially if your hair is wet. Being gentle with your hair when it is wet will make it smoother, and the Unbrush will help you take care of your wet hair like no other hair brush can do. The soft-flex bristles will eliminate tangles, and the patented vented cushion will reduce your drying time by 48%. Less heat means less frizz, so this is a huge victory. Using the right hair dryer is also of utmost importance.  This Elite Professional Series Accelerate 2200 Series will dry your hair faster than regular dryers,  and therefore it will be less prone to frizzing.

As the old song goes, “Summer and the livin’ is easy.” Well for those people who have hair that is prone to frizzing, it will be a whole lot easier if you follow the above tips. When you use FHIHeat products that will tame your mane and use the right tools for the job, you will end up with softer, more manageable hair. This is the way to go, because no one needs a complicated hair regime on their way out the door to the beach!
