Anti-Humidity Hair Products
Summer keeps coming and going here in Paris but it looks like it's in full swing in other parts of the world. I am so jealous of all of your beach photos on instagram and facebook guys! On those couple of days when the heat and the humidity do finally kick in, here are the products that can help keep my hair and yours in tip-top shape:
Kérastase Oleo-Relax Slim.
This leave-in treatment has seriously changed my life during the summer. Summer usually meant braids and buns which is so much fun but now I can put this in it and have the option to wear it down without being afraid of looking like Mufasa. It controls all my frizz even on the most humid of days. I apply about a quarter-sized amount on towel-dried hair sometimes adding a little bit of jojoba oil to my ends as well. It is an oil-based product so how much you need depends on your hair type. My hair is thick, long, and curly so I use quite a bit, but someone with thick short hair might only need a dime-size amount.
Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream.
I think that fine hair should avoid heavy silicones and oils for fighting frizz because while the hair might be frizz-free, it will also be weighed down and greasy. This product can be applied on wet hair and left to air dry, which I think is great for summer because who wants to blow dry their hair when it's so hot outside anyways? I like cream-based products like this one because they can be really worked into the hair with your hands.
