April showers bring May showers? How to work with unexpectedly humid conditions.
Why is it that frizzy hair on a six foot tall, double zero, Proenza Schouler clad model teetering down a NYC runway or hanging out during Fashion Week will somehow have "street style" and look "editorial" while I, five foot five and a half, chubby in my Old Navy fitness gear schlepping through Wegman's during the summer humidity will somehow look homeless and tragic?
Life. Is. Not. Fair.
If you are a frizz fighting tragedy like me, and want to be more "I meant to look like this" and less "OMFG," this list of our favorite anti-humidity hacks is for you.
Wella's 5 star Enrich Straight Leave In Cream is a curly girl's dream come true. Massage into damp curls and feel, smell, see the difference immediately. It smooths down fly aways, seals the cuticle to prevent frizzing, and creates a beautiful, touchable wave that tells humidity to take a hike.
Wella's EIMI Flowing Form Anti-Frizz Smoothing Balm gives luxurious smoothness and control that doesn't quit if you want your curls to go kaput. Built in anti-dehydraters protect your hair against hot tool use on those days you'd rather smooth than squiggle.
Update your shower head. Believe it or not, poor quality water that is too soft or too hard, contains minerals, chlorine or other impurities, can alter the integrity of your hair. Buy a shower head filter and see and feel the difference right away.
