Humiliate HumidityThe Copperhed Team
Summer is finally back in sight. While there’s nothing better than summer, with its longer days and warmer temperatures, that also means the humidity is coming to frizz your ‘do. Summer should be easy, and so should styling your hair. Here are a few simple ways to combat frizzy hair in the most humid weather:
At Home Remedies
Hair frizz may be tied to an issue with pH levels, which help maintain balance and hydration all over our bodies. An apple cider vinegar wash is a simple, at-home treatment to remedy your hair’s lack of acidy. Mix the vinegar with warm water in a 1:2 ratio and pour onto your hair. Let it sit for about 3 minutes, then rinse out with cold water. This can be repeated a couple times a week as necessary.
Another great home hair treatment is using an avocado! This fruit is naturally high in saturated fats and vitamins A, & E. With its incredible moisture content, avocado is an easy way to tame frizz and hydrate your locks. The best way to apply avocado to your hair is to create a smooth paste with 2-4 tablespoons of coconut oil. Mash up a medium sized, ripe avocado and mix well with the oil, ensuring it is not runny but has a mask-like consistency. Apply directly to your hair and scalp and leave it in for 20-30 minutes while covered with either a plastic cap or a towel. Rinse thoroughly and wash out the remaining mask with shampoo. For best results, use this method 1-2 times a week.
There are a sea of products out there marketed to ease frizzy hair. But the thing is, most of them either weigh down your hair with harsh chemicals, or they don’t work at all. Our Copperhed Daily Hair & Scalp Leave-on Treatment provides supplemental minerals that promote hydration, detangling, shine, and defrizzing, all while preventing color fading and protecting your hair from UV rays. Made without parabens, sulfates, or silicones, our leave-on treatment will not cause buildup that weighs down your hair.
Ask Your Hairstylist
A haircut is the frontline in fighting frizz. Your hairstylist has a few handy tricks up their sleeves to make sure your hair stays smooth in between cuts. Many people opt for a shorter cut in the warmer months because it’s much more manageable than long hair and lets your scalp breathe, keeping you cooler. If you’re not ready to trim your locks, ask your stylist to thin out the bottom layer of hair, shedding weight and the likelihood of frizz.
