We British are always moaning!

If it's raining, we wish it were dry, if it’s cold we wish it were warm! Now the sun is finally here, we are moaning because our hairs a flippin mess!

Why does your hair grow outwards when the weather's warm?

It's HUMIDITY! From the atmosphere and from you sweating... gross!

How do we stop it?!

There a few things that can protect your hair from humidity, stay indoors, probably isn't the one you want to hear, however it doe's limit your exposure to it. A few more realistic options are....

Keep your hair hydrated, the better hydrated and the better condition your hair is will affect how much your hair frizzes in damp or humid weather. 

If you have Curly hair and wear it curly  - Use a curl defining cream with more hold than normal, if you like your hair to feel very natural, mix a stronger more crunchy solution together with your normal cream. We like Paul Mitchell's Beach Wave Cream for a stronger hold. We sometimes mix a little of the relaxing balm into this solution if you hair is naturally very curly to counter balance to growing effect humidity has on your hair and add a little extra oil or serum to the mixture too to stop it from drying out. If you quite fancy taming your curls a little or relaxing them slightly, try a 30 day smoothing treatment.

If you have Curly hair and wear it straight - Use a relaxing balm and cocktail it with a blow-drying cream or spray that has more hold, this will help to keep your style longer and keep the growing or curling affect at bay and mist over Moroccanoil's Frizz Control before drying for extra protection. Before straightening spray, a thermal protection spray with hold, we use Hot Off The Press By Paul Mitchell

If you need a little extra help, try a 30 day smoothing treatment by keraStraight, it's their ultimate treatments little sister and give some amazing results. The super conditioning, smoothing treatment is dried into your hair to tame and give you extra control. If you want even more protection you can seal it in with the hot iron.

If you have straight hair that gets kinky or frizzy - Don't worry that more than one product will make your hair greasy or heavy. Most professional brands won't give you greasy build up due to the high-quality ingredients. Use a relaxing balm as this will help to give you a better smooth blow dry to start, you can still add some root boost or similar product for volume if you need it. Add a little blow-drying glaze to add some hold, we like to cocktail super sculpt for hold with super skinny relaxing balm. Take one pump and a a 5p sized amount of each and cocktail together in your hand and work through your damp hair, spritz Moroccanoil Frizz Control all over and try into your style. Use hot off the press to protect your hair when straightening, to cut down your styling regime try a 30 day smoothing treatment as above!

Happy Styling!
