Quick Fix for Frizzy Hair on Humid Days

I have naturally thick wavy hair. Those like me who have thick wavy hair, or thick curly hair, know that one of our biggest issues is frizz. On days when even the slightest sign of humidity is present our hair will puff out in a disgusting fluff ball type of mess.

It's annoying to have to maintain, and annoying that hair types like this have no choice but to shell out the bucks in order to keep frizz away, especially on humid days!

The absolute best option for those of us with thick frizz prone hair is to run it through a straight iron before stepping outside. The iron will straighten the hair, making it harder for frizz to rear its ugly springy face!

Straight irons work really well when trying to avoid frizz, but on days where you just don't have the time to straighten your hair, there has got to be a better solution.

Although there are barely ANY products out there to 100% cure frizz, there are products that do a semi decent job, and deserve recognition.

One is John Frieda's Frizz Ease serum. Adding a glob of it to your hair when it is looking and feeling puffy and frizzy will tame the fly always pretty quickly. The bad part though is that the leave in serums don't last all too long.

If you pair this up though with John Frieda's Frizz Ease shampoos and conditioners though your hair will be less likely to show any signs of the frizz beasts.

Smoothing balms also can do some wonders when it comes to smoothing out the frizz. One that I recommend would definitely have to be TIGI Bed Head After-Party Smoothing Cream. TIGI has always made unique hair care products, and TIGI Bed Head After-Party Smoothing Cream is no exception. This cream will keep frizz away for long periods of time. If your hair is prone to frizz often I suggest carrying it with you in your bag for humid days.

When you are completely at a loss though (and sometimes this happens; you are having a great hair day, and suddenly it rains, totally dissolving that great hair into a puffed out ball of frizzy twine!), keeping a small container of hair gel in your bag could become a life saver.

Although I don't like all too much how hair gel weighs down hair, it will definitely weigh down the frizz allowing you to at least get through the day without the frizz.

Keeping a bottle of lotion with you at all times can also relieve frizzy hair for when you have nothing else to use. Moisturizing hand lotions seem to work the best at settling down frizz. It does not last all too long, but it is better than nothing.

Frizz is a real pain, and it happens more often in hotter summer months when humidity is hot, high, and thick. Keeping a few emergency products on hand could turn bad hair days into tolerable ones.
