frizzy hair humidity

Frizzy and I know it!

In previous posts, I have talked about how I love my frizzy and curly hair. And I do and always will.

BUT, right now it is very humid in NY and LA which is causing my hair to be extra frizzy. I have never been good with styling my own hair and I desperately need a haircut but I haven’t been able to schedule one. We are going on a vacation to the beach in 2 weeks and I want my hair to look somewhat decent.

Any tips for keeping frizzy hair glam in humid weather?

Stay Glamorous,

Shannon Sutherland

    Hallo & oh dear…

    I don’t ‘suffer’ from frizzy hair but a former colleague did. So I collected some infos…

    a) Did you try the “FrizzEase” series?
    b) Try a treatment with oil, oliveoil or apricotoil or an oil made of the roots of the arctium plant (I haven’t found the english name so I gave you the latin one). Give the oil in your hair, cover it with a warm towel and leave it for 20min. Wash with silicone-free shampoo ( shampoo with silicone dries your hair).
    c) Try products for afro-hair. If afro-americans (or afro-europeans) don’t know about curly, frizzy hair, who else could you ask.
    d) See your doctor. Princess A is just celebrated her first year on earth, the hormonstatus might be not regular (nasty stuff them hormons 😉 )…

    My Former colleague was – no kidding – very successful with mayonaise… Used it as a treatment like the oilstuff…

    Be gentle with your hair, get a good high quality brush…

    Wishing you success!

    P.S.: Don’t forget sunprotection…

    Wow that is some great info I have very curly thick hair right now it looks like Ben Johnson’s did in The Stevedores Knitting Factory videos.Unfortunately I passed on my wild curls to my oldest daughter Larissa.

      I’ve done a little more research:
      The certain oil I mentioned is burdock root oil, according to Wikipedia also known as Bur oil. It’s also said to be combined with nettle root oil.

      I never tried it myself, it helped my colleague.
      Hope it works,

    I’m still trying to perfect my hair. HA that will never happen! Curls have a mind of their own. I just started using a hot oil treatment I made with grapeseed and rosemary essential oil. It brought back life to my totally dehydrated hair. It was shiny and I had bouncy curls.
    Before I cut my hair, I would slick back the frizz, twist it up and clip it with a claw clip if I didn’t feel like dealing with it. However, I discovered Ouidad’s climate control gel and pomade and their rake and shake method and my frizz turns into beautiful curls. I’ve also gotten the ouidad haircut for curly hair. They cut the curls to fit like puzzle pieces and so that your hair doesn’t shape like a triangle. Love it but can be pricey. (Paid $85 for just haircut here in ohio) However, ouidad is from NY. The gel is nice and liquidy, I let it my hair air dry then when dry just use the tiniest bit of pomade to soften the curls and off I curl rockin beautiful curls.
    I’m still on the look out for the best shampoo and conditioner for my hair.
