Fight Humidity and Frizz this Spring
SPRING IS FINALLY HERE! And for many people with naturally curly hair, that means it's time to book an appointment for braids to avoid the havoc heat and humidity can cause on naturally curly hair. Even on the most carefully straightened hair this type of weather can cause it to revert back to its natural curl pattern.
If you're looking for ways to keep your straightened hair looking sleek and smooth, even in the most humid conditions, then you've come to the right place.
Helix Beauty Supply is her to share some tips and product recommendations to help you maintain your straightened hair all summer long.
1. Start with the right shampoo
The first step in keeping your hair straight is using the right shampoo that won't draw excess moisture from the air into your hair but still leave your hair feeling hydrated so it is less likely to experience breakage from blow dryers and flat irons. If you use a shampoo that is meant to encourage curls, your hair is more likely to revert when straightened. Look for a shampoo that helps combat frizz.
2. Use a heat protectant
The first step in keeping your hair straight is to protect it from heat damage. Before using any hot tools on your hair, be sure to apply a heat protectant. Look for products that contain ingredients like argan oil, coconut oil, or keratin, which can help to smooth and protect your hair.
2. Straighten your hair in sections
When straightening your hair, it's important to work in small sections. This will ensure that you get all of the kinks and curls out of your hair, and it will also help your style to last longer. Use a good quality flat iron with adjustable heat settings to prevent burning your hair.
3. Use a hairspray or serum
After straightening each section of hair, use a light hairspray or serum to set the style in place. This will help to keep your hair straight and smooth, even in humid conditions. Look for products that contain ingredients like dimethicone or cyclomethicone, which can help to repel moisture and keep your hair frizz-free.
4. Avoid touching your hair
Once your hair is straightened and styled, try to avoid touching it as much as possible. The oils from your hands can transfer to your hair, causing it to become greasy and frizzy. Instead, try to use a hair clip or headband to keep your hair out of your face
5. Sleep with a silk or satin pillowcase
Sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase can help to prevent your hair from becoming tangled and frizzy overnight. These materials are also less likely to absorb moisture, which can help to keep your hair straight and smooth.
Keeping your naturally curly hair straight in the wet spring weather can be a challenge, but with the right products and techniques, it's definitely possible.
Be sure to use a heat protectant, straighten your hair in small sections, and use a hairspray or serum to set the style. Avoid touching your hair as much as possible and sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase to prevent frizz. With these tips and product recommendations, you'll be able to keep your hair straight and sleek, even on the most humid days.
