Your beautiful, wavy hair can become wild and unmanageable in humid weather. But don’t resign to covering up with a hat quite yet. These helpful hair tips and style ideas can keep your hair looking incredible in any weather.
Go with the flow
On humid days, don’t fight your hair’s natural wavy tendency by trying to straighten it. Instead, enjoy your waves. When you step out of the shower, towel dry your hair and then apply a leave-in conditioner to help avoid any frizz. Scrunch your hair with your hands and allow your waves to dry naturally, rather than using your blow dryer. If you absolutely must use heated styling tools, look for blow dryers and irons that utilize special technology to control static and frizzing such as infrared heat and negative ion systems.
Look for barrier products that are created to repel moisture. Silicone serums, anti-humidity sprays, anti-frizz mousse and other special hair care products will fight the humidity and help keep your hair from frizzing out.
Style tips for wavy hair
Twirl it – Spritz damp hair with spray gel to make it a little more manageable, then diffuse on low heat. While your are drying your hair, twirl it around your fingers to help shape your waves.
Mousse it – Apply a little mousse to towel-dried hair to enhance its natural texture, then allow your hair to air-dry. When it’s almost finished drying, apply a little silicone hair serum to the ends to tame flyaways. Run your fingers through your hair and then set with anti-humidity finishing spray.
Clip it – In hot sticky weather, you probably want your hair away from your face. Create a half-up, half-down hairstyle by pulling back the front portion of your hair and securing with a pretty clip.
