When the temperatures soar, the sun’s UV rays rush to damage your hair’s outermost layer (or cuticle). This causes the cuticle to go rough, bulge, and draw in the humidity. The result? Frizzy, easy-to-break hair that is a nightmare to manage.
In this blog, we’ve lined up result-oriented tricks – straight from the professionals – to help you leave your hair-health anxieties behind and bask in the warmth of summer!
Use the Right Shampoo
Hair frizz from humidity is the most evident red flag for damaged and unhealthy hair. Haircare starts in the shower and the type of shampoo you use can make or break the health of your hair. Pai-Shau offers a range of hair cleaners and conditioners to deeply moisturize your hair and protect them from the oftentimes unavoidable humidity.
Pull Your Hair Up!
Increasing humidity brings in extreme frizz. To avoid this, choosing a relaxed hairstyle or pulling your hair up entirely can be the best bet. A chic braided look, a stunning neck-bearing topknot, or even styling your wet hair in a bun or a braid can help you freshen up your style while beating the frizz.
Make Shea Butter and Oils Your Friend
Whipped shea butter and coconut oil are the perfect nemeses for hair frizz. They help keep the puffiness under control alongside reviving the health and shine of your hair.
Don’t Deviate From Your Natural Texture
When choosing a hairstyle for humid days, it’s critical to work with your natural texture. For instance, if your hair is naturally straight, you might want to avoid using a curling wand when high humidity levels strike.
Use A Memory Cream to Shield Your Strands
To avoid any frizz from humidity it’s important to keep the outer layers of the hair entirely flat. This is the exact purpose a memory cream serves.
Use A Microfiber Towel
Curly, coarse, or wavy – all hair types retain large quantities of water. Squeezing all the moisture out of your hair is another important step to keeping the frizz at bay. Squeeze your hair dry (don’t rough it up!) by using a microfiber towel for best results.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Summer is when we wash our hair more frequently, which can sometimes do more harm than good. To avoid drying your hair out, make sure you don’t overwash it and use the right shampoo and conditioner to keep them moisturized.
Light Hair Sprays and Hair Gels are Great for Curly Hair
Using light hair sprays helps keep the frizz down, protecting your hair from humidity. In case you’re air-drying your curly hair, make sure you use a hair gel, made especially for humid weather, to dry your hair smoothly.
Keratin Treatment Is the Ultimate Frizz-Fighter
If you’re overwhelmed with following a lengthy haircare regimen, heading to the salon for a keratin treatment can be a game-changer for your hair. In addition, this treatment helps prolong styling and retains your hair gloss.
With so many options, you are ready to take on summer, and all it has to offer! Just remember, a little vigilance and preparation will go a long way towards having your hair looking and feeling great all summer long.
