Humidity Haters.....

April 19, 2019 in

Hello chicas!
I've always thought of Easter weekend to be the ushering in of true spring.
This past weekend, we had our first taste of humid air. Its simply part and parcel of living on the ocean.
Humidity has always been especially cruel to my thick, naturally curly hair (that I blow out).
I've tried pretty much each and every frizz fighter out there over the past 20 years.
Luckily, things have come a long way since teenage me was trying to keep my hair from being a puff ball. Back in those days, a thick silicone solution was your only choice. That in its self was an improvement from when we'd have to cover our hair in extra strength Dep Gel. ( I LOVED the 1990's, but some aspects were tragic!)

Over the past few summers, I've found myself some serious "product heroes" as I like to call them. These are my solders that battle the frizz.  Today, I'm going to share them with you.

First up is:
Caviar Anti-Aging Anti Frizz Blowout Butter

                                                 Caviar Blowout Butter $34.00

Let me stress, a little of this goes a VERY, VERY long way. I have a lot of hair. My hair is very thick. I use a dime sized amount on my collar bone length hair.
It works like a charm and smells very light and clean.

Then we have

  • Living Proof Humidity Shield
                                   Living Proof Humidity Shield $23

This is not a hair spay, contrary to the looks of it. 
After you have dried your hair, section it out and spray this over each section.  It acts as if its a fortress around your hair protecting it from the muggies. It does not weigh your hair down at all and smells like pink grapefruit.

Moving along:

  • Its a 10 Miracle Silk Leave in
                                    Its a 10 Miracle Silk Leave in $24

This stuff literally changes the texture of my hair. The rough, course feeling just magically goes away when I spray this in. It never, ever makes my hair feel "over conditioned" or greasy. It does however, make my hair feel like it belongs to someone who didn't abuse a flat iron for 10+ years...

On to a splurge ...
  • Orbie Smoothing Blowout Cream
                                   Orbie Smoothing Blowout Cream $54

Not that its the point of this post, but the scent on this stuff is just divine. Yes, this one is pricey. One tube of this lasts me SO LONG though. Again, a very little goes quite a long way. I'm obsessed with this stuff.

And finally.....

  • WOW Dream Coat
                                       WOW! Dream Coat $28

I know that I've talked about this one before. This stuff is so unlike anything I've ever used before. It looks, feels and smells like regular water. However, it transforms my hair like nothing else.
Its so effective, you only use it every 3rd time you wash your hair. I spray it on to each individual section of hair before I blow dry it. Aside from how it virtually makes your hair humidity proof, it makes my hair shine like its NEVER shined before. I wish I could give this stuff an award.

So that's it from me. Are there any products that you swear by to fight the frizz?
