High-moisture air in the summertime can mean trouble for any hair type. Frizziness and fly aways have a way of wreaking havoc on up-dos and blowouts. Lucky for you, the N4 team is determined to help you win the battle with frizz! As we share our tips for managing hair in humid air, keep in mind that conquering muggy weather is all about consistent prep work.
Use Oil for Touch-Ups
This tip is ideal for those suffering from split ends and surface damage. When your ends are in need of a quick refresh, evenly distribute 1-2 pumps of our N4 Fluoro5 Elixer Restore and Repair Oil on damp or dry hair to bring any finished look back to life. Its non-greasy formula reduces blow dry time while dishing out dazzling results more brilliant that any red carpet glitterati.
Invest in Hydrating Products
As crazy as it seems, frizz management starts right in the shower. Hydrating and deep-conditioning products are key to keeping frizz under control – especially in the midst of humid weather. From full sized products to TSA-approved minis, our N4 Hydrate Collection includes everything you need to keep your tresses moisturized, while enhancing shine and texture. Our lightweight, yet highly concentrated formula keeps hair looking healthy and cleaner for a longer period of time. Number 4 Agent, Max Sawicky, says, “I love using Hydrating Shampoo to help bring life back to my clients’ hair. It makes brunettes more lush and blondes more vibrant without any product build-up. It’s my go-to shampoo when clients want more shine and volume.” No matter the weather, invest in some hydrating products and notice the replenished splendor!
Condition Your Ends
Warm and humid days may tempt you to wash your hair more often, but RESIST! Less frequent shampooing is the key to battling frizzy hair. Natural oils from your scalp keep your hair healthy and safe from becoming a poofy mess. Rather than using shampoo every time you wash your hair, try rinsing it with warm water to take away some of the sweat and oils, then condition the ends as you normally would with our N4 Hydrating Conditioner. By not stripping away all of your natural oils, you are instantly creating healthier hair.
Embrace Your Waves
There’s no better time to play up natural waves than during the summer! With a regular hydrating routine and a few spritzes of our N4 Sugar Texturizing Spray on damp hair, you can instantly achieve relaxed beachy waves wherever you go. For stubborn fly aways, use our N4 Texture Styling Creme to tame frizz without the stiffness. For a complete guide on how to achieve beachy waves based on your hair texture, check out our How to Get Beachy Waves blog. This season is all about giving your flat iron a break, and embracing au natural!
