Hot weather means beach time, tanning, outdoor activities, jogs in the sand, beautiful sunsets, possibly an evening mojito? I feel like I’m on vacation just writing these things. When it comes to styling your hair though, hot weather can create some obstacles. Sweat = moisture = frizz = yuck. You can spend an hour smoothing out your hair, and the moment the humidity hits it or you sweat a little bit you’re pretty much screwed.
STOP being a slave to your hair and go au natural! Learn how to work with your natural texture and you will save yourself time and stress. Straight and soft hair is boring anyway! Texture and roughness is really sexy right now, and if you can learn how to work with what you have, you will be forever grateful to… yourself!
If you have naturally curly hair like Kate Hudson, Vanessa Hudgens, or Annalynne Mccord, take note! They all usually represent their natural texture, with minimal enhancement.
One of my favorite things to do once curly/wavy hair is dry is to take a few pieces around the face and top of the head and curl them with a curling iron. These few “perfect” curls mixed with the natural curls really snazz up the style and can help if your hair looks too frizzy or too wild.
If you have long hair, try braiding your hair loosely while it’s a little damp, and let it dry like that. Once the hair is mostly dry unwrap the braids and shake out the fun texture. If it looks to kinky then spritz a little water on them and it will soften the wave.
My favorite curly hair products:
This styling spray adds volume and texture to the hair to create a sexy, wind-blown feel. Its salt-infused formula adds fullness, hold, and a cool, matte finish. Salt water is no secret to editorial stylists for adding volume and texture, and anyone who has been in the ocean knows of that salty, sexy, sun-dried, wind-styled feel (that seems such a shame to wash out). So while Bumble and bumble hasn’t exactly bottled the real thing, they’ve replicated and improved it, including seaweed and kelp extracts to enhance moisture.
Moroccanoil Curl Control Cream is formulated for naturally curly and wavy hair with an advanced technology that offers intense conditioning and detangling properties. Curl Control Cream delivers exceptional movement to hair while enhancing natural curls and offering optimal hold, adding volume, control and shine as well as providing humidity resistance.
Unlike old school hair mousse, Kaze Wave will not make your hair crispy or crunchy. It also protects your hair from heat tools, so this is a great product to let dry into your wet hair and then add a few curls with a curling iron.
Learn to love what you got ladies 😉
