StyleWatch Editors Want to Know Your Summer Hair Secrets!

04/29/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Who can actually say that they like their hair in the summer? As soon as the humidity rises, we find ourselves with a halo of hair hovering above our head. In our youth, a strategically placed bandanna would work to hide the offending mass of hair, but as working girls, that route doesn’t really fly. The quest for an alternative topical solution led us to a few frizz-fighters that actually work, including the classic Frizz-Ease and a cute headband, like Jessica Simpson’s. We want to know your solutions: How do you tame your frizzies in the summertime? What’s your summer hair secret?

I have super frizzy,especially in the summer. To top it off, I have curly hair. Don’t get me wrongm I love having curly hair, but combined with frizz, I look like I have a mop on my head. I use the frizz-eaze (sp?) styling mousse. It seems to work really well. Or I put it in a fench braid, wit hsome wisps hanging out. Still stylish, becuase braids are in. Headbands are great too! :)

I always wear scarfs in my hair- it’s a quick cute fix!

Once or twice a week I use extra-virgin organic olive oil in my hair. I drench it, wrap it in plastic, and leave it in overnight. It moisturizes my hair, and keeps it from frizzing in the heat.

During the summer I love to where scarves all the time! I work at a coffee shop so I often pull my hair back into a low ponytail, and wrap a mulit-print scarf around it. It’s a quick and fashionable way to look cute for summer!

J.Crew has some really pretty headbands.

I love Jessica’s headband. Headbands are a great accessory that add fun and color to your hair. I think that it is important though to not over do it when wearing hair accessories. For an example, if you are wearing a headband similiar to Jessica’s, wear simple studs in your ears rather than hoops or large chandellier earrings. Great choice Jessica, but then she always looks great!!!!

Heathy Sexy Hair Shampoo and Conditioner. They also make an Oatmeal mask that is WONDERFUL. These products work really well and I live in Texas so you can imagine the humidity!!!

I like the hair band look. I have thick curly hair, and use clear mascara to pull them back, it works great!
