The best products to combat humidity.

Though March has been surprisingly chilly, spring weather brings back the high Texas humidity percentages. Whether you’re enjoying thrilling rides at the rodeo or outdoor shopping at River Oaks District, you’ll need the right products to keep your salon-perfect hair tamed.

When the air reaches a spike in humidity, it causes hydrogen bonds to form within the proteins of hair, which triggers the arrival of hair’s worst enemy, frizz. Prepare your hair before walking out the door with deep conditioning treatments and scalp care. 

Yes, searching for humidity-fighting products on Google is easy, but it’s important to know what ingredients to look for. Products that contain argan, avocado, coconut, and jojoba oils are the best fit to win the frizz war because of their amount of protein and nourishment. But remember, oils are for damp hair, and sprays are used on dry hair. 

For a quick fix to combat the unwanted puffy look, try a mist-like Chita Beauty Gloss N Go Shine that will give your hair a nice hold throughout the day. You can also prepare ahead of time by using a leave-in conditioning cream like Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine, or Sol de Janeiro Triple Brazilian Butter Hair Repair Treatment Mask prior to styling to ensure a long-lasting look. 

As you prepare for an overflow of selfies this spring break, stay prepared with these humidity-fighting sprays, mists, creams, and serums.
