How to Fight Frizzy Summer Hair

I’m pretty torn about my feelings for summer. Sometimes I love the heat, but you’ll catch me complaining about it most of the time. It’s not that I don’t enjoy beach and patio weather, but the heat is no friend to my hair. It sounds pretty ridiculous, I know, but never underestimate the powers of a bad hair day. (I’m talking about you, frizz.)

To tame the frizz, I used to double the amount of coconut oil and serums I used in my hair and apply a little extra conditioner at the end of my wash. This helped, but it totally weighed my hair down and I found myself washing and drying it out even more. And after every wash came a blow-dry and heat styling, which resulted in more frizz. I was stuck in this constant bad hair-care cycle and couldn’t find a way out!

But that was before I found the products to fight the frizz and hydrate my thirsty dry hair.

TRESemme Climate Control Shampoo and Conditioner:
I needed a shampoo and conditioner that fight humidity and static without weighing my hair down. TRESemme Climate Control Shampoo and Conditioner promises to control frizz and fight humidity for up to 48 hours, while restoring moisture back into the hair. After using it for the first time, I allowed my hair to air dry to put it to the test. I found that my hair was still lacklustre, but the finish looked and felt normal and natural, which allowed me to apply other products to maintain the finish without weighing my hair down. Did it last 48 hours? I skipped a day of washing and that’s good enough for me!

Sun Bum Beach Formula Hair Care Collection:
From the new Sun Bum Beach Formula Hair Collection, I’ve been obsessed with the 3 In 1 Leave In and Shine On. Like the other serums I’ve used, these two products hydrate and bring shine back into my hair, but what’s different about them is that they come in a spray bottle! Sounds so simple, but if you think about it, it’s genius. Because you’re spraying the product into your hair, it’s evenly applied without weighing it down so much.

Right after my wash, I like to apply one or two spritzes of Sun Bum Beach Formula 3 In 1 Leave In to my almost-dry hair and run it through with a comb. This product leaves my hair feeling light and bouncy and looking shiny.

When I plan on blow-drying and styling my hair with a flat iron, I like to set my hair with Sun Bum Beach Formula Shine On for an extra shine boost. It’s so light in texture, I sometimes forget it’s in my hair.

What’s best about these products is that they restore the health of your hair and protect it from harmful UV rays in the best-smelling way possible. Both these products are blended with coconut oil, sweet almond oil and banana leaf.
