It’s difficult to find something negative about the Summer. You have the beach, the warm sun, and cute sundresses. However, while you most definitely look cute in that new outfit, your dry-frizzy hair might ruin everything.
The humid weather that’s typical of the Summer months will swell up your hair cuticles, making it puff up and look cray-cray. Here are some natural ways to tame that wild child you call hair!
Tips & Tricks
Don’t touch your hair. Friction will rough up the hair’s cuticle and cause frizz. Avoid brushing frizz-prone hair– instead, comb through with your fingers in the shower. This means no playing with your hair either.
Ethique Frizz Wrangler Shampoo Bar
This shampoo bar is specifically designed to combat dry-frizzy hair. Not only for Summer dryness, but also for those who abuse their hair with hot irons, curlers, hair dryers or bleach. The Samoan Coconut and Cocoa Butter will make your hair silky smooth without weighing it down, keeping your hair easy to style.
Plus, Ethique not only uses 100% natural ingredients, but they’ve foregone all plastic as well. Naturally, the brand has put on the “cruelty free”-cape too.
How do you use a bar of soap for your hair you ask? Wet the bar and your hair. Swipe the bar several times down your hair from root to tip. Put the bar down and lather shampoo into hair, which will quickly foam. Rinse!
The amazing product is either available here or at your local Priceline.
Try a Hair Mask
Your hair absorbs that humid weather because it’s most likely lacking a protective hydrated layer. Apply an extra moisturising hair mask once or twice a week in the shower to feed that thirsty sponge. Healthy hair is smooth hair!
Blow Dry It Completely
Even the slightest hint of dampness will attract frizz the second you step outside. Style your hair in a room with A/C if you can; a steamy bathroom will work against you.
Do Your Own Blowout
Be your own hair stylist and perfect your blowout technique. As you blow dry your hair, pull sections tight with a brush and point the nozzle of your hair dryer toward the ends of your hair. This helps smooth the cuticle so hair looks sleeker and shinier. Remember, blow ‘with’ the grain, never against.
Defeat that Summer sadness. Fight the frizz!
