Humidity plus hair can equal a frizzy mess, but it doesn't have to. When the heat rises, a few preventive measures can keep the flyaways and fluff at bay. Leonardo Manetti, co-founder of ION Studio in New York, has shared some pointers on doing so. "If you follow these quick steps," he says, "you will have frizz-free hair even on the most humid of days." For the scoop, just keep reading.
- Wash the frizz right out of your hair. Use a shampoo and conditioner made specifically to combat the problem. Manetti is a fan of Davines' LOVE Shampoo and Conditioner for Harsh & Frizzy Hair. "The blend of moisturizers and silicones leaves hair silky soft and manageable," he explains. And while you're at it, give hair a thorough rinse; having residual product on your hair just makes frizz worse.
- Grab some silicone."Apply a silicone-based shine product to your hair before you dry it," he says. But don't go overboard — use only the amount recommended in the instructions.
- Don't rush. Thoroughly dry your hair, and smooth down flyaways with a high-quality brush. "If you have to make one beauty investment, that should be it," he says.
- Keep your hands to yourself. After your hair is dry, keep your paws away from your locks. The oils in your hands will make hair unmanageable.
