Holy heat and humidity!
Fun fact: Summers in Massachusetts are HOT, humid and do a number on my hair.
Recently, I asked you what you do to tame frizz and the feedback was great! Below you’ll find a list of tips and products with links to check them out for yourself.
To get started, I did a little research and this is what I found:
- Wavy haired (me) and curly haired folks tend to have frizzier hair. These hair types are on the drier side and because of that- our hair will do whatever it takes to get the moisture is needs. Our hair will literally pull the moisture out of the air which causes it to look frizzy (who knew?!). It’s our job to treat our hair by giving it the moisture it is looking for.
- Shampoo your hair less! Shampoo can strip your hair of its natural oils and make it dry (aka crazy). Shampooing your hair less leaves those oils in your hair and helps to tame the frizz.
- When washing your hair, use less heat by using cool or luke warm water. This will also help keep your strands shiny.
- Stay away from sulfates. When sulfates are present, they help to “deep clean” which strips our hair and can lead to breakage. By choosing products without them, you have a better chance of having healthier locks.
- Use humidity defying products. They sell hairsprays that help lock in moisture and keep external moisture out. I ordered one and will repost back!
- Apply as little color and heat to your hair as possible. *This is where I believe my problem is coming from.* When you do- use heat protectant and conditioning products.
I asked and you said:
Sleepy Ties -A silky scrunchy used to keep your hair tucked away sleeping. Not only will this help with damage control but it could also help maintain your style= less heat day to day.
VERB Ghost Dry Oil * NOTE: A little goes a long way!
Living Proof Instant De-Frizzer Spray – I have this and will give this another try.
Color WOW Dream Coat Spray – I snagged this during Amazon Prime 2021. Need to give it a go.
Things I have used and liked in the past:
Garnier Frizz Guard Dry Spray -lightweight, smells great and not greasy.
OGX Coconut Miracle Oil Mist – smells amazing and you only need a little bit.
Kenra Dry Oil Control Spray – new to me but trying it out.
Flash Moment – this gel comes in a mascara like tube and is perfect for small jobs and flyaways.
That’s all for now. If you have any other suggestions for how to tame, please let me know in the comments below!
