How to Humidity-Proof Your Hair for the Duration of the Summer

Fighting frizz should not be a daily struggle.

There’s one thing on everyone’s minds as summer hits and temperatures rise above the nineties here in New York: the humidity in this heat. Frankly, it’s hard to think about anything else and it comes into play on the daily: we’re pulling out our breeziest dresses, cracking open icy beers as soon as five o’clock hits and upgrading our beauty and hair routines to keep up with the heat and stay as cool as we possibly can. Humidity-proof hair routines are a must-have now that July has arrived and there are a few elements that play into that successful humidity-proof hair life. The hair products you use and the pillowcases you sleep on all come into play. Read on for the entire rundown:

Get your beauty sleep.

Getting your six to eight hours of sleep every night is essential for your overall health but the pillowcases you’re sleeping on will affect your hair health, too. You’ve likely heard about the wonders that silk pillowcases can do for your hair but if you’re like me then you haven’t bought into the hype.

I finally pulled the trigger and ordered two (floral and summery) silk cases online. Take it from me: your hair will thank you and you’ll start to see results in no time. When there’s less friction between your hair and your pillowcase, your hair cuticles will stay intact and that means less frizz during the daytime. The pillowcases also stay cooler than their cotton counterparts which you’ll appreciate on these hot summer nights.

Revamp your shower routine.

The foundation of your hair experience starts in the shower so it will come as no surprise when we suggest an anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner duo to keep your strands in check. Dove Nutritive Solutions Anti-Frizz Oil Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner use Argan, coconut and almond oils to nourish your hair and eliminate frizz. You can grab this duo at your local drugstore while you’re picking up a six pack for your 4th of July barbecue and get your frizz-free humidity-proof hair life started this week.

Take advantage of hair mask magic.

Get that hair mask magic going this summer and make TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Mask a regular part of your hair care routine. This mask will smooth your strands for a true frizz-free experience and you’ll be amazed by how soft your hair feels after even just one use.

Finish with a bang.

No matter how you style your hair in this heat, you’ll want to lock in your style with an anti-frizz hairspray. Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Hairspray is specifically formulated to fight humidity so it’s the perfect summery alternative to your usual hairspray of choice.
