Hair Products That Protect Against Houston Humidity




Although March was surprisingly cold, the spring weather brings back Texas’ high humidity percentages. Whether you’re enjoying thrilling rides at the rodeo or shopping outdoors in the River Oaks District, you’ll need the right products to keep your hair salon-perfect.

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

Yes, searching for moisture-busting 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 best suited to win the frizz war due to their high protein and nutrient content. But remember, oils are for damp hair and sprays are for dry hair.

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

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