Welcome Back Humidity

When Humidity Attacks
Spring has arrived, and with that comes the "showers to bring May flowers"...BOO! 
I love Spring evenings, however am a way bigger fan of Fall ... this might be because Kevin wakes up almost every morning stuffy from March - October! Any who, back to my point, Spring = Frizzy, Poofy, Frowy (is this a word), Impossibly Stupid HAIR! I have naturally wavy/ curly hair and have only recently ( in the last few years) figured out how to manage it. That being said, I feel it is my duty to share with all you guys and gals with the same problem, my favorite de-frowing fixes! 

First up: Herbal Essence Long Term Relationship - Leave-In Split End Protector for Long Hair
This stuff is great because it not only helps make your ends ( which tend to frizz the most) smoother and more manageable, it also protects your hair, so if you are ironing or drying it, this product allows your hair to come out silky looking instead of fried! I find that with a little bit of this product my hair is less likely to frizz as the day goes on. It also isn't a heavy leave-in formula which is great if your hair is cut with layers that need styling. It runs about $5 and can be tricky to find- I've only seen it at Target and Walmart. 

Second Up: Aussie Sprunch Spray
 This product allows you to embrace your waves & curls by scrunching or "sprunching" your hair. It has a great wild grape smell to it and isn't completely sticky like hair spray but allows your tresses to stick together nicely. This is ideal to use when you are in a hurry or just have an inkling that your hair simply is NOT going to cooperate today! It runs about $5 and can be found just about anywhere!

Third up: Avon Advance Techniques Frizz Control Lotus Shield

This is a relatively new product to me but I have used this several times and found that it not only helps my hair to dry quicker, but the serum makes is 100x easier to style since my hair behaves right off the bat! This is what I will be swearing by this Spring, however, its a little pricier than the others at $8-$12 per bottle and can only be purchased through an Avon Rep. It's definitely worth it if you are hoping for a magnificent hair day and don't mind spending the few extra bucks, otherwise I'd suggest using the other two products to save styling time and  money. This stuff truly does allow you to have a salon like blowout, love it!

Do you have curly hair or hair that loathes humidity?! Do you live in a humid state?! What are your humid hair go-to's??


  1. I can just about get a brush through my hair when I go on holiday it just go craxy in humidity. Paul Mitchell Wild Ginger range is the only products that seem to help my hair in humid conditions

    Over on my blog I am having a MAC lipstick give away :o) You could win a Mac lipstick in the colour of your choice. I would love for you to enter

  2. I use Dove leave in soothing cream but now with the new Clear shampoo I feel like I don't need anything to control the frizz :)

  3. Oooh! I will have to try that :) The Lotus Shield is my favorite so far, I have never had completely frizz free hair until that stuff! I absolutely love Dove products so I can't wait to try the soothing cream :)
