Hair Tips for Humid Weather, Monaco Hair Salon, Tampa
At our Hair Salon in Tampa we know the disastrous effect of Florida weather on your hair, especially the hot moist air of summer. The sun and heat of summer that draws many to the beach can create disastrous hair conditions for anyone whose hair is affected by humidity. Depending on your hair type, the high moisture content in the air during humid weather can either create frizzy locks, weigh your hair down or your gorgeous curls to droop. Straight haired girls are going to have trouble holding curls in humidity too.
At Monaco Hair Salon we would like to share some hair tips for hot humid weather. Don’t worry, it is possible to control your hair in our tropical climate.
Moisturize your hair
If your hair frizzles more than it sizzles a great conditioner may help tame your tresses. Conditioning your hair will actually protect your hair from the humidity and eliminate frizz. Dry hair absorbs moisture from the environment so the drier your hair, the worse the frizzing and flopping of your locks. Make sure you protect your hair and deep condition to nourish the hair, keeping it in great condition. Look for a finishing hair spray that promotes anti-frizz or humidity protection. These sprays work like a conditioner, and add a fine misting of essential oils to nourish the hair and lock out humidity in the air. A good conditioner can fight the frizz caused by our humid climate so you can enjoy a smoother and shinier hairstyle.
Air Dry vs. Blow Dry
Blow drying your hair when the weather is hot and humid will dehydrate your hair and that is the last thing you need. After washing your hair with a moisturizing shampoo, simply rinse with cool water. This will help to close down your hair’s cuticle and seal the pores so that humidity can’t get in and wreck your style. You can also create volume by lightly blow-drying your hair at the roots or simply allow your hair to dry naturally and you’ll notice a lot less curl dropping or frizz. By working with your natural hair type, you will be able to achieve a style that looks good no matter what weather conditions you may face.
Instead of blow drying curly hair, scrunch your hair gently with your fingers to define curls and allow your hair to air dry. If air drying your hair completely is not an option, towel dry hair and allow it to dry 75% of the way before finishing your style under the dryer. Blow drying zaps hair of moisture and greatly increases the amount of frizz.
Silicone Based Hair Balm
Applying a silicone based hair balm can work wonders in tropical weather. This coats the strands of your hair and helps to seal in natural moisture and prevent tropical weather from interfering. Too much silicone will make your hair feel heavy and lifeless so focus on the ends and the length of the hair shaft or you’ll end up back in the sink! Don’t forget, less is more.
Use a good leave in hair conditioning treatment and use it at least once a week. This will help to restore lost moisture to your locks. Go for a product that promotes anti-humectant properties, which means it will help prevent hair from drawing moisture out of the air.
Leave Hair Long
If your hair is long and thick, get lots of layers so you’ve got some movement and so that it doesn’t feel as heavy. The weight of longer hair helps to prevent unwanted puffiness. Many women go for a shorter hair style when they live in the tropics, thinking shorter hair is easier when battling with humidity. While shorter hairstyles will curl up in the damp air, lengthy tresses will keep their shape.
Wear Your Hair Up
It’s as simple as it is inexpensive. Make sure you always have a spare hair tie or a couple of clips with you. When all else fails and your hairstyle is defeated by the hot humid air, tie your hair up and get it away from your face.
