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?

Nicole G, age 21, Winnipeg, MB: In the summer, I let my curls go, but when I have to be somewhere or look serious, I pull my hair up into a cute twist with some curls hanging loose. Then I use those great elastic-headbands to tame those face-framing strands… it looks pulled together enough for work, and trendy out at night!

What I do especially in the summer weather is just let my hair dry naturally…if im at the beach the wind basically drys my hair and leaves is looking as if my hair has a natural wave. To set it off I mix up some seasalt and water and use a spray bottle to spray it all over my hair. It holds the waves better.

I just started to use some Frizz-ease spray before blow drying, and so far I really love it. My hair looks a lot smoother.

I have incredibly thick, curly hair that just loves to frizz. To make it worse, I live in FLORIDA! However i foudn the most AMAZING product for frizz, it doesn’t make your hair stiff and doesn’t weight down the curl. Alterna’s Hemp texturizing glaze. They also make a Hemp straightening balm that I use when I have 2 hours to iron my hair out straight, but who has that kind of time! It’s a little pricey, about $20 per tube, but it’ll last about 3 weeks if you use the right amount!

Head hands and head scarves are great for bad hair days! And if I didn’t have my straightening iron I would have a lot of them!!

I have generally straight hair but humidity can cause it to curl up or frizz. I find that any leave in straightening balm works. If im desparate i will use my straightener wich always leaves my hair looking great!

I us Sammy gel. It’s kind of like Frizz-ease but not as oily. It works really well and smells awesome!

I have really frizzy hair especially during the summer. After years and years of trying different products to no avail, I bought a bottle Herbal Essences None of Your Frizzines Smoothing Leave in Creme. I didn’t honestly think it would work but to my surprise it keeps my hair tame even during the hottest days. After I get out of the shower, I drench my hair in the creme and let air dry and my naturally curly hair has no frizz to it and its soft. My husband loves the fact that he can run his fingers through my hair unlike other products I’ve tried in the past.

Loving the hairmask from Rituals; It’s a wrap. Decreases frizzyness and it smells wonderfull; people always ask me what kind of perfume I’m wearing but it’s the scent of the hairmask.
