Summer is supposed to be nearly over, yet it’s still damp and steamy. Most of us are walking around with a stunning halo of fuzz. This fuzz is part of living in the South near salty, wet air.

There are zillions of defrizzing products on the market. Anything that is silicone based or creamy should keep frizz at bay. However, use caution when applying because your hair can get too oily and will need to be reshampooed.

The best solution to this fuzzy issue is the Brazilian blowout for a three- to four-month remedy. The liquid formula actually changes the hair texture and makes it so much easier to style. The fuzz disappears and the hair is smoother without compromising the body or curl.

A keratin relaxer also solves the frizzies and makes the hair much straighter. It’s kind of a Brazilian blowout on crack.

The benefit to both of these treatments is they are good for the hair and are somewhat cumulative. So, after a few treatments, you don’t have to have them as frequently as the first few times.

Luckily, controlled wavy hair is in right now. The poker straight hair is out. Taking on more interest are beachy waves, braids, bangs and curls.

Actually, anything and everything is on trend as long as the hair is shiny and healthy – and it’s a style that’s suited for your face and lifestyle.

Sun-damaged, brassy, over-lightened hair is a no-no. Those issues are common in this climate as well.

A clear sealer can be done in the salon that closes down the cuticle layer, making the hair look so much healthier and happier. If coupled with a demi color, this treatment will bring the hair back to a rich, natural color and then sealed with clear will improve the integrity of the hair ten times.

Whether it’s a temporary wash-out laminate product or a salon treatment, give your hair some love and care and reboot it for the upcoming cooler weather and the holidays that are just around the corner.
