Beat the Humidity this Summer

Summer in North Carolina is no joke. Not only do temperatures frequently hit the triple digits, but the humidity makes being outside almost unbearable. With temperatures warming up from May til late August, it’s nearly impossible to avoid switching up your hair routine to accommodate the climate. Fortunately, by adding a few products into your hair care lineup, maintaining smooth and styled hair in the heat can be fairly easy.

Nourishing Masks and Oils

Goldwell Kerasilk Control Mask

Similar to the Humidity Barrier Spray, this mask also utilizes keratin and silk proteins to strengthen and smooth the hair along with a variety of moisturizing ingredients to deeply nourish dry and stressed out tresses. Simply apply to wet or towel dried hair, leave on for approximately 5-10 minutes, and then rinse thoroughly for increased control and manageability all summer long!


BB Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil

Be sure to banish rough, dry hair this summer with Bumble and Bumble’s award-winning Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil! This product contains a unique blend of 6 different lightweight oils- including coconut, macadamia, grape seed and sweet almond oil- that work together to provide weightless shine, moisture and control to even the finest, frizz-prone hair! Work sparingly into damp hair before styling for silky smooth strands, and as an added bonus, enjoy built in UV-ray sun protection too!


Kerasilk Control Smoothing Fluid

For those with thicker or coarser hair types, look no further than the Kerasilk Control Smoothing Fluid, which instantly smooths and tames unruly strands that tend to rough up in the humid heat. Simply apply to either towel dried or dry hair and leave in, no heat styling necessary! Of course, if you choose to blow dry, this fluid also offers wonderful heat protection as well.


Finishing Products

Oribe Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray

This anti-humidity finishing spray combines a unique copolymer with various free-radical protectants to shield hair from harmful UV-rays and lock hairstyles in place with a light hold regardless of the weather. Additionally, pro-vitamin B5 and panthenol work to thicken, condition and build volume in the sleekest way possible so your hair remains frizz-free, but never flat- perfect for finer hair types!


Goldwell Humidity Barrier Spray

All hair types and textures- but especially thicker ones- can appreciate the latest addition to Goldwell’s renowned Kerasilk Control Line: the Humidity Barrier Spray! Utilizing keratin, an essential protein for strong, healthy hair, and liquid silk for further smoothness and shine, this spray is crucial for shielding hair from frizz-inducing high temperatures. Both ingredients leave a weightless sheen that adds polish and hold to your look, so you can stay looking your best on even the hottest days!


Curl Control

Bumble and Bumble Anti-Humidity Gel Oil

This amazing gel from Bumble and Bumble’s beloved curl line contains a patented HydraSculpt blend of polymers and moisturizing agents to make sure each individual curl is defined and hydrated. In addition, exotic Brazilian oils leave a luminous shine. A little goes a long way, so simply work small amounts in sections through damp hair, and either air dry or diffuse- results either way are glossy, elongated and frizz-free curls!


Oribe’s Curl Gelée for Shine & Definition

This thick curl jelly by Oribe offers the perfect solution to curls that are a bit tighter and harder to control in the warm summer months. Glycerin provides deep hydration for parched coils, and along with nourishing mango, cocoa and avocado butters, repairs strands and protects from further damage. Macadamia and apricot oils smooth the cuticle and give you high-shine, defined tendrils with a medium hold that won’t pouf out all summer long!
