While the summer is awesome and greatly desired, there is one thing that gets in the way of enjoying these endless days of sun and that’s humidity. Over time, as you go about the day, humidity will take a serious toll on your hair. Here are some tips to help fight against the humidity.
Remember To Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Do your best to keep your hair moisturized so it won’t soak up excess moisture from the damp air. Things like deep conditioning, leave-in conditioners, and coconut oil (see from the previous blog) help counteract the effects of humidity, letting hair sustain its health. A great trick to counter frizz is to apply an anti-frizz serum, leave-in conditioner, or argan oil from roots to ends before styling.
Anytime you leave your hair down, it is susceptible to the effects of the humidity. Try these tricks to manage your hair throughout the summer.
- Try pulling it up and/or loose styles
- Head scarves and headbands look great and are daily protective styles.
- Braids are a great protective style during the summer. Remember to use leave in conditioner on visible strands.
For Curly Ladies
Ladies with curls loose or tight know that curls plus humidity can equal disaster. Instead of the battling your natural hair, try embrace the texture and researching the best styles to accommodate your lovely locks. One trick to make this work for you is by applying rich argan oil to wet hair and then using a diffuser attachment on your blow dryer to work with your natural shape. We recommend you work with your hair’s natural, beautiful texture. Humidity will bring out your natural curls, so you might as well embrace it!
