March Madness – The Hair Version

March 25, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

Spring time is here and the weather has already started showing a little preview of the humidity that comes in the summer time. This creates a little March madness in your life and I’m not referring to any basketball tournaments. I’m talking about those awful days where you wake up and your hair won’t do anything styling-wise. What choice do you have other than to just throw it up into a frizzy and not-so-hot-looking ponytail. These days are some of the most frustrating times for so many women because they may have an everyday style that they can’t perform on those days because of the humidity in the air.

Cutting back on styles isn’t very fun, especially in the spring. This is the perfect time of year to play around with styles and be cute every day of the week because everything around us is starting to wake up and show its beauty. It wouldn’t be fair to let hair just fall boring and be frizzy everyday if you have a certain plan for it. Sometimes the problem is so bad that even a hair straightener can’t help you. Luckily you can make it pretty each day by following these two tips.

One thing that most people wouldn’t think to do is avoid blow drying as much as you can. With all the humidity and moisture that is in the air this time of year, your hair already contains enough frizz. If you apply even more heat to it after showering, you will only be allowing more frizz to form and cause problems for the rest of your day. So please, do yourself a favor: save some time and some frizz by letting it towel or air dry when you shower.

To also cut down on that frizz, it helps to sleep with a pillow that has a silk case over the top. It’s great for your hair because it does wonders compared to a cotton pillow. When you sleep against cotton (especially with wet hair) your hair gets tangled and rubs up against the fibers to create even more static and frizz than with a silk pillow. Silk is a type of lint-free fabric so it doesn’t have the same fibers to attract to your hair and mess up its texture. Therefore, when you wake up in the morning, your hair will be dry and won’t contain as much frizz.

Hair is much easier to handle when it doesn’t contain frizz. There’s too much fun to experience in the summer for you to have to stay inside just to avoid humid air. These easy tips and tricks will get you one step closer to frizz-free. Do remember that your hair will still contain some frizz, these methods just help tame a good portion of the problem and won’t get rid of the entire problem.

Humidity and Straight Hair

June 12, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Summer time can really be hard on your hair with all the sun, heat, and humidity added on top of the styling that someone does everyday. The heat and humidity can make your hair frizzy and unmanageable making even the straightest of hair untamed. A straightening iron can help you get your hair back into the sleek, straight appearance that you would like to have. Hair flat irons using tourmaline can not only remove that summer time humidity induced frizz, but also help you retain your hair’s own natural moisture that summer time styling and sun can take out of it quickly.

Of course it is also important to remember to use the lowest temperature possible when using a hair flat iron. Too high of a temperature can damage hair that is already coping with summer sun, chlorine, and other extremes that the season brings. It is always important to use only the temperature needed to get the job done, no matter what time of year to keep your hair healthy when using hair flat irons and other professional hair styling tools. There is nothing more like summer than beautiful straight hair and a great bikini.
