Your Guide to Frizz Free Hair During Summer

Frizzy hair is a common Summer problem. The humidity and the heat can cause your hair to become dry, frizzy, and unmanageable. But with a few simple tips from Charlie Taylor, you can keep your hair looking smooth and sleek all season long.








Get Rid of Split ends and Damaged Hair

As the weather starts to heat up, it's time to start thinking about summer haircuts. Start with a good trim or a completely new hairstyle at the beginning of the season, making sure to get rid of any split ends and broken ends.  Damaged hair is more prone to frizz and a new hair cut will help make your locks feel fuller, more lustrous and easier to manage during the summer months. 


Match Your Hair Type to Your Shampoo

Anyone who's ever dealt with the summertime humidity knows that the battle for frizz-free, manageable hair is real. And while there's no such thing as a magic cure-all, using high-quality shampoo and conditioner is a good place to start. A good rule of thumb is to look for products that are specifically designed for your hair type—whether it's oily, dry, or somewhere in between. Once you've found the right formulas, be sure to use them religiously (which means no skipping those all-important post-beach showers). 


Combat Chlorine Hair Damage with a Hair Mask

Chlorinated water, salt water, and UV rays can all leave your locks feeling dry and brittle, resulting in even more frizz.  One way to combat summer hair damage and tame frizz is to use a hair mask once a week. Hair masks are designed to deeply condition the hair, penetrating the shaft to provide long-lasting hydration.  There are many different types of hair masks on the market, so you can choose one that best suits your needs. For example, if your hair is prone to frizz, look for a mask that contains natural oils or smoothing agents. If your hair is dry or brittle, look for a mask that contains hydrating ingredients like aloe vera or honey. 


Fight Humidity with Anti-Frizz Products

It's a hot, sticky summer day. You step out of the air conditioning and into the heat, and suddenly your hair turns into a frizzy, puffy mess. It's a familiar feeling for many people, but it doesn't have to be.  There are products available that can help to protect your hair from the effects of humidity. These products work by creating a barrier between your hair and the humid air. They can help to keep your hair looking smooth and sleek, even on the most humid days. So if you're tired of frizzy hair, consider investing in an anti-humidity product. 

Reduce Exposure To Damaging UV Rays

Just as important as sunscreen for your skin is a sun care range for your hair. Damage from UV rays can cause your hair to become dry, brittle, and discoloured. In addition, exposure to the sun can also lead to scalp problems such as sunburn and even skin cancer. Another way to protect your hair from the sun is to wear a sun hat. A sun hat will keep your hair covered and provide protection from harmful UV rays. It is important to protect your hair from the sun, whether you're at the beach or just out running errands.


Look for products that contain UV filters and are designed for use in the sun. Also, be sure to read the label carefully to ensure that the product is suitable for your hair type.  In addition, try to avoid using heat-based styling tools, and if you must use them, be sure to use a protectant spray or serum. 


Take a Break from Heat Styling

When it comes to hair styling, heat is not your best friend. From curling irons to hair dryers, exposure to high temperatures can damage the shaft of the hair and strip away natural moisture, leading to dry, brittle locks. In addition, heat styling can also cause split ends and breakage.  To avoid these hair problems, take a break from heat styling every now, opt into heatless hair styling solutions and give your hair a chance to recover.


When you do use heat-based styling tools, be sure to use a protectant spray or serum to help minimize the damage. With a little care, you can keep your hair healthy and beautiful for years to come.


Invest in a Good Hair Oil

Hair oil helps to lock in moisture, keeping your hair hydrated and protected from the elements. It also adds shine and smoothness, helping you to achieve that sleek summer look.  Be sure to choose a lightweight hair oil for summer as to not weigh your hair down or make it greasy. So if you're looking for a way to keep your hair looking its best while travelling, hair oil is a great option.


Drink Enough Water for Your Hair!

Water hydrates the hair follicles and prevents the hair from drying out. Drinking enough water per day helps flush out toxins quicker and more efficiently. Make sure you are drinking the recommended daily water intake, which is 2L per day. Investing in a 2L bottle can really help monitor your water intake as you go about your day.

Switch to a Satin Pillowcase to Reduce Frizz

Regular pillowcases are made of coarse fibers that can cause friction and absorb moisture from your hair, leading to frizz, tangles, and breakage. Whilst the fibers in a satin pillowcase are much finer, so they slide over your hair instead of tugging at it. They also help to maintain moisture levels in your hair, which reduces frizz and keeps your style looking polished for longer. So if you're looking for a way to reduce frizz and prolong your blowout, invest in a satin pillowcase.
