Beat the Heat
Classic Makeup for a Wedding
I hate the feeling of heavy, melted hair from a hot and humid day. I especially hate it if I took time to style my hair only to inevitably put it up as a last resort!
Listen, I love a good messy bun as much as anybody else, but as we enter into summer, I thought I’d share my favorite products to help beat humidity, limp hair, and even cut dry time so you can wear your hair down and enjoy it.
My favorite blow dry sprays:
Both are fantastic for cutting some dry time. I find the Matrix one to be a bit lighter than KMS, but neither feel heavy on the hair.
My favorite humidity sprays:
While neither keep my hair in tip top shape in the most humid conditions, I can tell a difference in frizz on days when I don’t use it. My hair tends to go limp in humidity, and while it will still go limp, it doesn’t look as ruined when I use one of these. As far as one being better than the other, they are pretty similar to me.
My favorite hairspray for humid conditions:
Kenra Volume 25 cannot be beat, in my opinion, and it’s my daily go-to hairspray. It claims to block humidity, and I think it does a great job of holding in a style. It can be layered, so use it sparingly on rainy or humid days. Another alternative is Amika Touchable Hairspray for a lighter finish that will still hold the hair!
Ultimately, the lighter you go on products, the better your hair will survive! And you could always give up altogether and just wear it back like this too!
