Hey Sassy Peeps!
Let’s talk hair + humidity! How many of you frowned a little after reading those words?!?! I ask because I frowned while typing them. LOL!
Humidity has the worst effect on our hair and does some major style cramping with little to no effort. Ugh! When going head to head with THE BIG “H” most of us will lose. However, there are a few things you can do to show Mr. “BIG” why you are the #GirlBoss that you truly are!
Since I live in a very humid climate I am always thinking of workarounds. Meaning ways to stay cute when he shows his humid head. Check out 5 bad hair fixes below….
Cute Hats & Chic Scarves
When humidity strikes hats and scarves can totally save your look. What I love about these accessories are that they can be used to camouflage the frizz without actually looking like that’s what they are doing. You can also work them into your look when running late. Tying your hair up with a simple piece of material only takes a few minutes and can magically transform you into the Sassy chick that you totally are.
Yep! I am ALL about Spare hair (Wigs, Extensions, Weave, Braids). I think every women should have some sort of spare hair on hand. It not only helps you maintain a polished look when she strikes, but it also gives your actual hair a rest. I personally love wigs! A few years before becoming a Natural girl my hair broke off really bad. Although I cut several inches off, it was so thin that I just decided to wear wigs to give it a break and to help my self-esteem. After a few years of rest and some esteem building it filled in and grew back beautifully.
If you put your hair up, it can’t unfollow the rules. Just ensure you have your favorite holding spray, gel, cream or paste to help you create the look you want. I am personally obsessed with Moroccan Surfpaste. It totally holds my updo’s in place for hours and hours and hours! I am totally amazed how well it works, because I have searched for years and always ran straight into a dead end.
Which is all good, but now I have a different problem. I’ve been looking to purchase more and it seems to be sold out pretty much EVERYWHERE!!! If anyone knows where I can find the product DO TELL!!!!!
Good Styling Products
You MUST invest in good styling products. When I say invest, I don’t mean go out and buy the most experience thing on the market, I mean take time out to look for the product(s) that work best for your hair. There are some awesome anti humidity agents/serums/shampoos/conditioners out on the market.
I am currently in the middle of doing this myself.
Recently I have been getting so annoyed with my hair. I try not to, but when taking so much time to prepare it for the perfect twist out, and then minutes after walking outside I end up looking like James Brown’s mugshot, there is a BIG PROBLEM! #TheStruggleIsReal!
A couple of weeks ago, I saw this young women whose curls were poppin and hair texture looked really close to mine. After admiring it for more than a minute, I decided to asked her what she uses. She told me she couldn’t remember the name, but it’s a serum that says anti-humidity and protects hair from the sun. I ran out and grabbed a bottle that looks pretty much like what she described and I am totally praying it works! I will keep you guys posted.
When Christina Nicholson from the Media Maven and I participated in the “BFFs AT Festival“ Commercial, we were both complaining about our hair. I was annoyed that shrinkage happened while shooting outside and she was annoyed that her hair went flat. After a few not so nice words directed at Mr. BIG, we just said FORGET IT and enjoyed this magical and fun time! If you haven’t already seen it, check it out below! I think we both look pretty darn CUTE!
Now to you Sassy Peeps! What are some of your workarounds for managing your hair when humidity happens? OR do you just embrace the look? Inquiring minds what to know!
