You wake up early to straighten your gorgeous hair and by hour three, it’s a ball of curls and frizz. if you’re not a fan of the lion look, it can be a real mess. Some may think that there is not much you can do in the battle against the almighty powers of humidity, but we have some tips and tricks on how to keep your hair straight while the air is bugging.

Shower Right

The first step to straight hair in the heat is to shower at night. When showering, use a straightening shampoo and conditioner to create a strong foundation for sleek and straight hair. Showering at night gives your hair more time to dry before the morning. This can make your morning routine easier and can minimize adding extra heat to you hair.

We recommend sleeping with your hair down so no strands stay wet. Humidity is attracted to all things wet, so unless you want layers of your hair to be frizzy while the rest is straight, double check that every strand is dry.

Your BFF: Hair-Smoothing Products

Before you jump into bed, we recommend applying an anti-frizz hair serum to your hair to make your morning hair routine that much easier and the rest of your day that much less frizzy. Want to talk about a strong defense against intense humidity? Find a serum that works best for you!
