DIY Products

Anti-humidity Lotion
Mixing Coconut Oil and whipped Shea Butter is a great anti-humidity treatment because Coconut oil is light making this lotion suitable for all hair types. Whipped Shea butter is excellent for keeping the frizz down making hair healthy and shiny. It is also great for hair that is chemically treated and bleached. It is very nourishing and a little bit goes a long way. This can be used on dry skin and hands as well.

Sea Salt Spray
Mix together 1 teaspoon Sea Salt and 1 teaspoon Coconut Oil with water for a great DIY Sea Salt Spray. Sea sprays are always popular in summer and it could not be easier to make your own. Sea salt is great for oily hair as it naturally pulls out oil and moisture. Adding Coconut Oil to this spray helps to counteract the drying effects of the salt, you can add a small amount of oil directly to the hair for extra conditioning protection.

Tips and Tricks

- Always remember a little product can go a long way, doubling up on a strong hold hairspray may seem like a good idea to keep your hair in place, but it will backfire as soon as the hair gets heavy from the humidity.

- I've learned when it comes to humidity, your hairstyle should be based on your natural hair texture, if your hair is naturally straight, don't choose a wavy hairstyle on a humid day or if your hair is thick and wavy, don't straighten your hair, because it will end up a frizzy mess.

- Master a go-to hairstyle for pulling your hair back on a humid day. I wear my hair up a lot in the summertime.

If I’m dressed up a bit, I like to pull my hair back into a side braid or ponytail and loosen a few hairs around my face to make it feel a bit dressed up.

If it’s a casual day, I’m more likely to throw it up into a messy bun. My favorite hair ties are GoodyOuchless Clear Elastics.
