How to fight summer frizz

Between heat, humidity and unpredictable weather conditions, it can seem impossible to keep hair smooth during summer. Fortunately, there are plenty of products that can seal the hair, combating frizz and making sure it stays sleek whether you're on the beach or in the office, and regardless of the climate.

The first step to any frizz-fighting regiment is the right shampoo and conditioner. The Fekkai Luscious Curls Shampoo and conditioner is optimal for kinky or wavy hair, while the protein complex in the same brand's Protein Rx Reparative Shampoo and conditioner is just what brittle, damaged strands need for manageability. After washing and conditioning, rinse with cool water to close the cuticle and pat hair dry, as rubbing can promote unwanted frizz.

Next, a serum is crucial for blocking out humidity. Leonor Greyl's Serum de Soie Sublimateur not only detangles and enhances shine, but also provides a UV filter to protect the hair's color and texture.

Having the right styling tools in your arsenal is key. Using an iconic dryer is less damaging, meaning hair will retain more moisture and be less prone to breakage. Putting a finger extension, like T3's Soft Touch, on the dryer can help to distribute heat more evenly, which defines curls and eliminates frizz for a more polished finished style.

With the right products and practices, your hair will look healthier and calmer, even in the dog days of summer.

Do-it-yourself solutions for removing unwanted hair

Do-it-yourself solutions for removing unwanted hairHair removal can be overwhelming for women, especially when tackling the delicate areas of one’s face. From eyebrows to upper lips, what are the best, do-it-yourself ways to rid skin of excess hair?

According to Allure.com, eyebrows can be easily maintained with simple tweezing, as long as you have the right tools at your disposal – a white pencil and a good pair of tweezers.

“Hold the pencil against the side of your nose and put a line where it hits your eyebrow,” the website suggests. “Tilt the pencil diagonally so it touches the outer corner of your eye and mark that spot [as these will be your brows' parameters]…Finally, put a dot just above the outside of your iris – that should be the highest point of your arch.”

Once you have connected the dots and marked your brows, use a sturdy but precise pair of tweezers, such as Tweezerman Slant Tweezers.

To eliminate superfluous upper lip hair, women could easily wax stray strands away, but the news source reminds women to stick to low-temperature products intended specifically for facial use, as wax kits designed for other body parts can burn the face. Moom Express Pre Waxed Strips for Face & Bikini require no additional heating as the product melts with your body temperature and comes with a cucumber and jojoba finishing oil to soothe and moisturize skin.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19920745-ADNFCR
