One of the most frustrating things about humid weather is that it makes your hair frizz. As a woman, this can be especially troublesome because you have to spend hours styling your locks, and then they end up looking like a big ball of fuzz when you walk outside.
It’s hard to have a bad hair day when you live in an area with a mild climate. But if you live in a humid environment, your tresses will be frizzing all over the place, and it can be difficult to keep them looking beautiful. Unfortunately, the humidity is not your friend when it comes to maintaining sleek locks, but there are some things that you can do on days where it’s just too high.
Hairstyles for Humid Weather
Humid weather can be hard on your hair, but the right products and techniques can help you fight frizz. Here are our best tips for keeping your hair looking sleek in humid conditions:
- Use a heat protectant before using hot tools. This will keep the outside layer of your strands from getting too dry or brittle. It also helps to make sure that the inside layers don’t get damaged by excess heat. Hairspray is another excellent way to give protection without weighing down your locks.
- To avoid over-shampooing and dry out extra oily scalp skin, try cutting back on how often you wash it during high humidity months (I recommend every other day).
- Use products made specifically for combating humidity-induced frizz, such as anti-humectants or gel formulas.
- Put less product in your hair on hot (humid) days.
Styling Tips for Humid Weather
To reduce the amount of unwanted frizz, we recommend using a leave-in conditioner or serum before styling. You can also use an anti-frizz cream on wet hair after washing as well as a smoothing spray on dry hair before styling. If done correctly, these tips should help keep your hair looking great all summer long.
The weather is changing, and the humidity is at an all-time high. In addition to being uncomfortable, it also wreaks havoc on our hair – causing frizz and making styling a challenge. Luckily there are some easy ways to combat these effects. Some of my top tips for preventing your hair from frizzing in humid weather include: using a leave-in conditioner or spray before you blow-dry; applying a light oil such as argan oil while your hair is still damp; combing through with fingers instead of brushes (brushes can cause static); wearing protective styles like braids or twists that don’t require much manipulation; and lastly, get creative with accessories like hats, headbands, scarves, and pins.
