Now that summer is right around the corner – in 30 days, to be exact – now is the time to get your hair in check in time for the hot, humid months ahead. If you have frizzy hair, or hair that goes from fabulous to disaster when exposed to heat and humidity, this article was made for you.
The humid weather can be detrimental to a beautiful hair style, no matter how much hair spray you might use. The time is now to prepare yourself and learn what to do to avoid hair mishaps and enjoy your summer while out and about. Lionesse has some brilliant tips to help get you through the humidity, looking your absolute best while you’re out having fun.
Serums can help to deter the humidity from wreaking havoc on your styled hair, and lock the moisture out from attacking the follicles. Opt for a serum that adds shine and boosts protection against humidity. Anti-humidity hairspray, when used in conjunction with a good serum, is one of your best defenses against the heat. Using both together provides a barrier of protection. If you have curls, you could use an anti-humidity mousse along with an anti-humidity serum and hair spray for the ultimate in protection.
Don’t Touch Your Hair
Once your style is all finished, hair sprayed, and set, you won’t want to touch your hair and mess it around. This can cause friction and static which can lead to humidity. You can also disturb the style and cause the product to wear off quickly if you are playing around with your hair. For the longest lasting style possible, don’t touch your hair once it’s done.
Opt for Buns
On those days where you just don’t have the time or willpower to create a straightened style or work with a bunch of products, opt for a messy bun, cotton candy bun, or even a regular bun on top of your head to keep the hair pulled away from the face and shoulders, alleviate the worry of humidity attacking, and also, give yourself a sleek, classy style. Be sure to spray the hair on the head and underneath with some good anti-humidity hairspray to lock potential flyaways and frizzies in place.
Deep conditioning your hair might seem like it’s counterproductive, but on the contrary – it actually helps to fight the effects of frizz. When the hair has enough moisture, it’s not going to want to extract extraneous moisture from the air around you. Apply a deep conditioning pack in the shower twice per week from halfway down the hair strands and work through to the ends. Rinse thoroughly and follow up with an anti-frizz serum to combed, towel dried hair for maximum protection against the humidity.
Add Some Angles and Layers
Adding layers and angles to your hair style will help you to maintain your sleek, straight hair if that is the style you choose to go for. Your style will be able to look more polished and precise, and depending upon how many layers of, well, layers you have, you will be able to maintain the sleek look you love a lot easier than you would if you had hair that was all one length. Opt for this addition this summer to your style for the look of it, as it’s super cute and stylish, and the ease of style ability as well.
