The Texas Panhandle has been experiencing a bit of humidity lately, and many of us aren’t used to this phenomenon called moisture!
While humidity gives us a nice break from the dry arid air, it can turn your hair into a hot, frizzy mess. Below, we share how to tame the frizz and keep your hair looking its best.
Add Moisture to Beat the Heat
Are you noticing mid-day frizz after being out in the hot, humid air? Tackle the problem by reaching for the same nourishing oils you use post-pool, such as Oribe’s Gold Lust Nourishing Oil. This product can easily smooth out frizzy hair and leave you with a perfectly smooth and shiny mane. After 15 minutes, it will penetrate the cuticle, preventing greasy hair. Just smooth the oil through the hair to smooth down flyaways.
Choose the Casual Look
When spending time under the sun, sometimes the best option is to go with a quick and cute updo. A topknot, braid, or simple ponytail that might look messy in your everyday life can give you a casually chic look whether you’re going to walk or strolling on the beach.
To look like you've put in a little more effort, choose a braided style. Fishtail braids are easy to achieve while looking like they took a lot of time and skill. Milkmaid braids look cute with a beach wardrobe and will keep hair out of your face while you're exploring the town.
Prep After the Pool
Chilling by the water this weekend? Before you hop into a chlorinated pool, wet your hair and put a deep conditioner on it. You don’t want your hair to absorb chlorine. The deep conditioner will protect the hair cuticle though. After getting out of the pool, shampoo and condition your hair as soon as possible. We recommend Oribe’s Cleanse Clarifying Shampoo to help remove chlorine from your hair. If you plan on getting in and out of the pool all day, just reapply the deep conditioner.
