We love Summer! Dining al fresco, BBQs on the beach and enjoying good times with family and friends. But if there’s one thing we hate, it’s the frizzy hair that comes with the heat (Nous detestons!!).
Some of us are more prone to it than others, say if we have curly or coily hair. However the higher temperatures and horrid humidity can turn even the sleekest and straightest strands poofy.
But just because our hair is prone to poof-iness, it doesn’t mean we have to hide underneath a hat or keep our locks tied up. At Number 4 we have rounded up some of our favorite styling tips and products to help fight the frizz this season.
Take a read to find out how to achieve sleek hair all throughout summer.
Why Do Our Strands Go Frizzy in Summer?
Before we jump into it, let’s have a chat about why our hair gets a bit out of control. For some, it’s just naturally in our DNA, but it can also affect those who use heat styling appliances which causes hair breakage, thus causing frizz.
When it’s humid, the air has more moisture in it and your hair absorbs this, making your strands swell and go POOF!
Conditioner Is Your Best Friend
Dry hair is one of the biggest causes of frizz. That’s why making sure you use a good conditioner can help reduce your frizzy mop. The N4 Hydrating Condition helps to repair split ends and dry strands, saving you from poofiness!
Simply distribute the product on your hair evenly after using N4s Hydrating Shampoo (the perfect companion) and leave-in for up to a minute. Focus on your ends and work your way towards your roots.
Not only will this leave your hair silky smooth, its formula contains Vitamin B5 allowing your locks to shine in the sun!
Opt For Intensive Treatments
If you’re looking for an extra step for your hair care routine, using a restorative hair treatment is the perfect addition. N4s Reconstructing Hair Masque focuses on deeper conditioning and leaving you with lightweight, moisturized results.
Want to know our favorite ingredients in this formula? Soy Protein and Sweet Potato Protein reconstructs, strengthens and helps make hair up to 3 times stronger. Dah-ling, you’ll be smelling just as delicious as your locks look!
Use this once a week and let it replace your conditioning step. Make sure to thoroughly wash your locks with N4s Hydrating Shampoo and then start at the ends with the Reconstructing Hair Masque and work your way to your scalp. Leave it in for 3-5 minutes and thoroughly wash out.
Focus On Smoothing Treatments
The wonderful thing about N4 is that we understand your hair troubles dah-ling. We’ve worked hard to create formulas for each and every hair type to help you through the bad hair days. That’s why we’re excited to tell you about a duo that’s specifically aimed just for frizzy locks!
N4s Smoothing Treatment is a combination of a balm that allows you to style your strands in any way you want as it tackles complex frizzy textures, and an oil that repairs whilst conditions at the same time.
The Smoothing Balm quite literally does what it says on the bottle, plus more! A powerful part of the formula is Fluoro Technology which makes all the smoothing possible as it has the ability to create the tiniest smoothing molecules. So, all of the fab N4 ingredients can go into the hair’s core and work faster. Whilst it does this, you’re blessed with reduced hair drying time and a shield of humidity and heat protection!
Make sure to wash your hair with N4s Hydrating Shampoo and Hydrating Condition and then apply the Smoothing Balm (a small amount goes a long way!). You can then dry your hair your desired way.
Finish off with N4s Fluoro5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil to add extra moisture, humidity protection and a time-defying shine! Just 1-2 pumps does the job perfectly.
Dah-ling, we could go on forever about smoothing products! Do you know why? It’s because each and every one of N4s range contains a formula to help tackle humidity and frizz, as well as heat protection. So, no matter what you use, you can leave the house hair happy!
