Picture this: You are getting ready for a nice dinner date with your crush. You curl your hair, put on a dress, and complete your makeup. Everything is going as it should… but then you walk outside. Your hair starts to frizz and lose its curl the minute you step out of your front door! Here are a few tips on how you can beat the humidity before it hits you!
First off, try to make your look agree with your natural hair. If you have naturally straight hair, it’s smarter to stick with straightening it instead of curling it. This way, the humidity won’t have as big of an urge to get your hair back to its natural state.
How you dry your hair plays a big part in the fizziness of it. Blow drying your hair takes almost all the moisture out of your locks, which is a recipe for disaster on humid nights! Try towel drying your hair by lightly blotting the water out of it. If you are running short on time and have to blow dry it, separate your hair into smaller sections and dry it slowly.
Try to minimize the heat put on your hair as much as possible. If you have naturally gorgeous hair, don’t be afraid to rock it! If you have curly/wavy hair, avoid brushing it and let your curls hang just how they want! You can also scrunch your hair with a gel or foam to hold the curls into place.
After all these tips are put into play, add some product to your hair. The obvious hair spray will help do the job as well as serums and gels such as Moroccan Oil. Then you are set for the night without worry of your hair expanding as soon as you step out of the door!
