We’ve gone through tips on how to make your Makeup last through the summer heat and humidity, now let’s talk about hair! This one is trickier because you can spend hours primping and ironing only to take one step into that wall of moisture outside and *poof* all your hard work is gone and all you are left with is this frizzy mop on top of your head. Not to worry though, I am here with some great tips to keeping your mane looking gorgeous all summer long:
1. Flat iron your hair before you leave home. This is always my fool proof, won’t let me down tip I love for the summer. The flat iron is different than a round brush/blow dryer combo as it actually presses your hair into pin straight locks and helps ward off the effects of the humidity. Do note though, if your hair comes in contact with even a fine mist of water, it will start to frizz so steer clear of all sprinklers!!!
2. Leave in conditioner. This should be your first step to preventing frizz. Leave in conditioner will load hair up with moisture and in result protect it from the effects of the summer air. Use a heavier conditioner for curly locks and a lightweight formula if you have fine hair, and only spritz the bottom half so as to not weigh down the hair too much.
3. Humidity proof spray. Finish your styling off with a light mist of any humidity combating spray before you leave the house. This will help ward off the effects of the moist air for longer than just hairspray alone, sealing out the humidity and keeping your hair looking fresh and gorgeous all day.
4. DON’T touch your hair! This is the biggest tip I can leave you with!! Whatever you do, leave your tresses alone. The more you touch it, the bigger it will get and you will end up looking like a chia pet. As they love to say – set it and forget it!
