WEATHER-PROOF YOUR HAIR
A Suave Professionals® stylist reveals how to fight back against whatever Mother Nature has in store.
A trendy side braid can stand up to a breezy day. Start by prepping hair with Suave Professionals® Sleek Anti-Frizz Cream to help keep your braid sections clean and smooth. Then make a side part, divide the side with more hair into three sections, and braid, picking up new hair along the way. (Click here, then scroll down to “Side Braid” on the left menu to watch Leaf create this look.) For a variation on this style, braid the hair on each side of the part, gather both braids into a bun and secure with bobby pins.
Your best bet is to go with the wet weather, not against it. Forget trying to blow out your hair stick-straight. Instead, encourage your waves. Work a golf-ball-size amount of Suave Professionals® Captivating Curls Cream Moussethrough clean, damp hair, then blow-dry on high heat/low speed with a diffuser attachment. To create major lift, bend over so your head is upside down and dry the roots first. Dry the rest of your hair until it’s still about 25% damp. This will keep frizz at bay and make the style last longer. If you need to, you can re-curl a few pieces with a curling iron. Now all your friends will wonder why you look so great while they’re coping with failed blowouts!
One of the go-to products is Suave Professionals® Keratin Infusion™ Smooth & Shine Serum. Apply it to wet hair before a blowout to fight frizz for up to 48 hours. Another amazing humidity-fighting product is Suave Professionals® Keratin Infusion Heat Defense™ Leave-In Conditioner. If you have really thick hair, you can mix in some of the serum for extra protection. While air-drying is preferred, but you can use the diffuser on your blow dryer if you’re in a time crunch.
