Summer is here, with temperatures soaring high. We all love the season because it's time to vacation, travel, and enjoy barbecues. However, the heat can be uncomfortable. The high heat and humidity get to most of us - and our hair. Summer means fun, pools, and beaches, but it also means cute summer styles. Finding the right hairstyles that protect your hair and accentuate your style and beauty can prove challenging.
We all have mornings when the stray strands in our hair are a little too much. These untamed strands are what we call frizz and are often challenging to handle, especially when you want to retain a certain hairstyle. Frizz occurs in all hair types, whether straight, wavy, curly, or coily. Knowing how to play with your hair type is the best way to control frizz. This post focuses on what causes frizz and what you can do to prevent frizz in your hair type.
Staying hydrated isn't just the number one rule for total body health and wellness. Hydration is also the secret ingredient behind naturally radiant curly hair. Type 3 hair and type 4 hair are both prone to dryness from everyday wear, sun exposure, heat styling, and even factors as simple as using the wrong shampoo for your hair type. Lack of moisture can make styling natural hair difficult and time-consuming, with lackluster results that are anything but Instagram-worthy #hairgoals.
Whether you're doing curls at the gym or flaunting the curls in your hair, fitness-loving goddesses need not compromise between style and getting in a good workout. Managing post-workout hair can put a downer on that after-gym endorphin rush. Sweat, wind, tight buns, and ponytails can all stress out your lovely locks -- while you're trying to de-stress no less! The problem of gym hair can be especially frustrating when you're running on a tight schedule. No one likes running back to workwith fly-aways andsnares or heading out on a date night feeling less than flawless.
These days, many women seem obsessed with laying down their baby hairs, understandably so. Maybe we can thank Hollywood stars for that or maybe it's because our moms always used to do it for us. Who knows? There are so many chemicals in many edge control gels that do damage to your hair, so, if you're looking for nourishing ingredients that help you look fabulous while also being wholesome, it might be time to start making your own edge control recipes for your beautiful curly hair.
Curly hair is naturally beautiful and vibrant. Still, sometimes you want to switch up your style. Adding a pop of color is a great way to make a bold change. Unfortunately, adding moisture-zapping color to curls that already have a tendency to be dry can be intimidating. If you have curly or coily hair, you probably already go to great lengths to keep your tresses properly moisturized. Dyeing your hair could leave you with dried out or fried, unhealthy looking hair.
Sweat is one of those things that can really ruin your day in terms of hair care. Fortunately, there are ways to stop sweat from causing hair damage in curly hair or kinky hair. This would include type 3 hair or type 4 hair, officially. Here is some info about what sweat does to hair, as well as some ways you can deal with sweat in your daily routine.
If you have fine curly hair, you can attest that it can be both a gift and a burden. On the plus side, you have versatile voluminous hair that allows you to wear it in various styles. With its wild and free yet elegant nature, you always stand out among the crowd.
However, with such benefits also come challenges. Curly hair requires unique maintenance to keep it in tip-top condition. Otherwise, you may notice breakages, thinning, frizz, limpness, split ends, and fly-aways. Though poor grooming techniques can lead to damaged, dry, or brittle hair, there are also other causes. These include chemical treatments, heat exposure, and, paradoxically, your maintenance routine if it becomes tangled up.
