Genius Hacks For Humidity

Genius Hacks For Humidity

Everybody gets excited for summertime! Hot weather, bbq's and time spent in the sun! What could be a better combination!?

However, the issue seems to be that our hair doesn't feel the same way about summertime! Humidity in the summertime can mean trouble for any hair type, as frizziness and flyaways wreak havoc on hairdos everywhere

Turns out, the chemical makeup of human hair is extremely sensitive to airborne hydrogen. So sensitive, in fact, that some gadgets used to measure humidity—called hygrometers—rely on hair for their readings. The greater the humidity, the shorter the hair in the hygrometer becomes. Straight hair will become wavy, wavy hair will become curly and curly hair will become curlier. And, often, it will become completely frizzy! 

Whether you have wavy, curly, coiled or straight hair, it will take a beating during the summer months. Pollution, along with the heat and humidity can make even the healthiest of hair dry, dull and lifeless.

Instead of hiding your locks, know that the key to winning the battle with humidity and frizz is all about using the proper products

1. Controlling frizz is the biggest issue during summer and most people think the solution is with tons of hairspray and heat styling tools. But it turns out the most effective defense against frizzy hair starts right in the shower, as hydrating and deep-conditioning products are essential in keeping frizz under control.

2. Using chemically-induced products to control frizz dry out the hair and make it dull.  During hot and humid months using a serum that contains Argan Oil, which has a high content of vitamin A and E, fatty acids and antioxidants, works to tame frizz and make the hair look full and voluminous.

3. Last, but not least, the best known hair hack to prevent the hair from becoming frizzy or reacting to humidity is NOT TO TOUCH YOUR HAIR! No matter how much you might want to fix your hair, touching it is a huge don’t, as running your hands through your hair allows moisture to spread which, will make your hair frizz out even more.
