Living in South Florida, it’s pretty much humid ALL year around! During the summer time I practically live in a ponytail or top knot. After living in a tropical climate my entire life, I’ve learned some tips and tricks along the way to have a GOOD hair day even on the most humid summer day. So I’m excited to be partnering with Simply & Hair Food today to share 5 tips and tricks for keeping your hair shiny and luxurious in the humidity!
1. USE THE RIGHT SHAMPOO + CONDITIONER
Give your hair the nourishment it needs! I’ve recently been using Hair Food’s Hair Milk Shampoo and Conditioner available at Target stores and Target.com. I absolutely love it. It’s sulfate free and is packed with healthy ingredients to help keep your hair hydrated and smooth. Plus, it smells like summer! It is SO good. If necessary, also use a conditioning treatment once a week or every other week. The products you use make all the difference!
2. WEAR YOUR HAIR UP AS MUCH AS YOU CAN
If you’re prone to frizz, wear your hair up as much as possible! This will help you to manage frizz while keeping your hairs normal texture. I love using these hair ties because they don’t leave a crease and you’re able to throw your hair up without ruining your hair style!
3. DON’T OVER WASH YOUR HAIR
Washing your hair every day can really dry it out! I know it’s HOT and you might feel the need to shampoo every day but DON’T! You will find that when you wash your hair less, your hair’s natural oils will keep your hair moisturized. Also, dry shampoo can be your BEST friend.
4. AFTER YOU WASH YOUR HAIR, MAKE SURE TO FULLY DRY IT
Your hair holds A LOT of water. Gently towel dry your hair post shower to get all moisture out. This helps keep frizziness at bay. TIP: Use an absorbent microfiber towel for best results!
5. USE HAIR SPRAY OR A SERUM TO LOCK IN YOUR HAIR STYLE
Use a serum or a little bit of hair spray to lock those stray hairs in place! It’s a great way to keep the outermost layer of your hair in place and fend off humidity.
