Get into Summer with beautiful, frizz free hair.
Sunshine is a great way to get a healthy glow, but it’s also a great way to take the glow and shine from our hair. Both extremes of dry, hot weather or humidity can leave many people with an unmanageable mane of frizzed up hair. Fear not the frizz monster, the good news is there are many things we can do to take your hair through summer with a glimmering, healthy shine.
Both humidity and dry heat can swell the surface cuticle of the hair. When the surface of your hair is swollen and uneven it frizzes and feels rough, when it’s smooth and compact it shines, frizz free.
Try to protect your hair from excessive wear, over brushing, combing etc. Once it’s dry and styled, try to leave it alone, even if it means clipping or pinning part of it away from your face.
Avoid “setting” it in high hold styling products, Gentle hold products like Quick Dry 18, and Quick Tease 15 will give great body and support but not weigh hair down. Investing in good quality products is a great start. All Redken products that are pH 4.5-5, this keeps the cuticle flat, so it’s smooth and shiny all the time. Always use a conditioner or finishing rinse after you shampoo to seal and protect your hair, and only use on the mid lengths and ends to avoid over oily roots. Rinse your hair and blot with a towel. Never rub, ever! This is a sure way of roughing up the surface of the hair and causing frizz
Redken’s Color Extend and Blonde Idol products from Moodyhair are all salt and sulphate free, a big plus if your hair is prone to frizzing in the heat. If you want something top of the range, for maximum effectiveness Redken NYC’s latest flagship range of products are called Frizz Dismiss (available at Moodyhair from £12.75). There is a shampoo, conditioner and intensive treatment, as well as “Rebel Tame” a leave in frizz taming smoothing cream, and “Smooth Force”, a super effective smoothing spray applied to the hair anytime you want frizz free shine and control. All these products protect against humidity and heat frizz. But be quick we have limited stock this month and they’re selling out fast at Moodyhair.
For all our Moodyhair blow drying we recommend Redken’s Pillow Proof Primer, an amazing, light spritz that offers massive heat protection and gently lifts and volumizes hair for a longer lasting blow dry finish.
Another massive Moodyhair favourite to nourish and and lasting shine to the hair is Redken’s beautiful Diamond Oil, a blend of pure apricot and camelina oil, it absorbs lightly into any hair type giving gorgeous lustre and powerful protection.
Whatever you choose, be assured regular shampooing and conditioning, with great products, is the best way to moisturise and maintain your hair and here at Moodyhair we are always on hand to advise and recommend the best Redken products for your hair. Always try to protect your hair from direct sun as best you can, and remember, summer hair can be shiny, soft and shimmeringly frizz free.
