beautiful black women with straight hair

This summer while you are enjoying the sun and the heat, find ways you can also have straight smooth hair while dealing with the ruthless humidity. 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!

Oils & Shea Butter

Good morning, sunshine! The sun is shining and the moisture in the air is alive and well! Before taking the iron to your mane, we suggest giving some TLC to your hair by adding some oils and shea butter. This stuff is especially good for wavy and thick hair. When it comes to keeping frizz at bay while simultaneously feeding your hair with healthy ingredients, oils and shea butter are a safe bet.

Set Your Hair

After straightening your hair, set it with something with hold and anti-frizz. Find a spray that leaves your hair feeling light and durable. Everyone has their own favs, take the time to find yours! Bonus tip: Be sure that your hair is completely dry and cooled down before heading out the door. This will allow your hair to set and hold longer during the day.

Be Gentle With Your Hair

At the end of the day, the weather is going to do what the weather is going to do and your hair is going to do the same. Sometimes the best thing to do is to accept your hair in all of its glory. The best thing you can do for it is to just love it. Embrace the curl, the frizz, and the wildness of it all. Once you embrace your hair, nothing will stop you!
