While summer is fondly remembered for a warm glow and plenty of sunshine, it also gets a bad rap for pesky beauty issues. Humidity is just one of them. Just when you think you’ve got the perfect hair care routine in place, you have to do with frizzy hair that’s greasy and unmanageable. Not for long though—if your locks are also in this sticky situation (quite literally!), just follow these easy hair hacks to make humidity history…
 

It’s a wrap

It’s a wrap

Caring for curly or wavy hair in the summer can be quite a struggle. That’s why we resort to hair plopping. Yes, that’s an actual technique that involves wrapping one’s hair in a cotton T-shirt or towel to reduce frizz and retain the hair’s natural texture. To try this, apply a bit of leave-in conditioner to your hair once you wash it and then wrap it in the tee. Leave it for 20 minutes and then air-dry it. This hair care tip eliminates frizz and creates a natural bounce.

Keep it cool

Even if you opt for a warm bath during the season, make just one tweak to your showering routine in the hot months. When you’re done, rinse your hair with cold water from the direction of the scalp to the ends. This seals the outer layer of the hair so that moisture and nutrients from your hair products stay within the strand and work their magic. This hair care trick reduces hair from frizzing up and keeps the scalp cool so that humidity has a minimal effect on it.

 

Make the right choice

Scrub it off

It isn’t just the hair lengths that humidity affects, it is also the scalp. Since you tend to sweat more, there is more grime collected on the scalp. To get rid of this residue, opt for a natural scalp scrub on a weekly basis that can gently exfoliate your scalp.

Dry it well

Overdosing on heat styling isn’t recommended at any time of the year so in summer, opt for a sleek blow dry only when required. When blow drying hair, move in the direction of root to ends in order to minimize the mid lengths from frizzing up. Also regulate the setting between cool and warm to let your hairstyle set well.
