Help! Summer Humidity is Ruining my Hair!

The summer heat and humidity can can wreak havoc on your hair – turning silky curls into frightening frizz and smooth, straight locks into a flat, matted-down mess. What’s a girl to do?

Down here in South Florida, we’ve learned to deal with the extreme humidity (and what it does to our hair). Here are a few helpful tips we gathered from women of all different hair types:

Summer Hair Care Tips

Bad hair day? Don’t panic – shop for natural hair care products at Vitacost.com!

1. Trim it up. The beginning of summer is the perfect time for a trim. Not only will you rid your locks of split ends that can easily frizz, you’ll feel less weighed down. Considering a new look? A short, low-maintenance ‘do just might be the right way to go.

2. Hydrate! Tired of humidity-induced fly-aways? Tame them with a  frizz-busting serum or a natural moisturizing product – a few drops of argan oil can do the trick. Too much time at the beach or pool? If you’re dealing with dry, damaged hair, try a deep-conditioning treatment or a leave-in conditioner.

3. Pump up the volume. If you have fine hair, humidity can leave it looking limp and flat. To keep your ‘do from deflating halfway through the day, start off with a shampoo and conditioner that’s specially formulated for fine hair. Next, style with a spray-on volumizer and use a lightweight mousse or a spritz of natural hairspray to keep things in place. Don’t go overboard with styling products, as they can weigh your hair down.

BONUS TIP: Summer frizz can be exacerbated by your favorite styling tools – so pack up your flat iron and stash your blow dryer for the season!

    Good post. The sun’s heat and humidity seem to be more damaging during the summer. Thanks for posting.

  3. Hydration is the enemy of thicker and shinny hair and in summer everyone should drink more and more water to make their body fresh and this constantly drinking water habit will help to keep your face fresh and your hair healthy.

    This was actually a major problem in my own salon, believe it or not. We bought a small scaled unit to provide efficient to our whole shop, and it helped keep all the employees- and the customers!- a lot happier with the finished product.

  5. At the time of summer it’s a common matter of sweating in hair. It’s really harmful for hair. It can reduces the resistance of hair. So in this period it’s necessary to rinse your hair at least two time in whole day and after rise it will wash by a towel . It’s really helpful for your hair.Try this and you will be get benefited.
