It’s summer—you grab the gear and head outdoors. But with the heat comes humidity, and for many, that means battling frizz and oily scalp. If you’re tired of trying one product after another, it’s time to stop the madness and use professional salon quality products that actually work. We stopped by The Beauty Supply Outlet in Burlington to check out four products to keep your hair looking and feeling fresh.
Summer humidity creates a lot of moisture, and excess moisture causes the tiny cuticles on each hair to lift, creating frizz. We found two professional products that tame unruly hair, leaving you with a smooth, sleek look despite the summer heat.
• CHI Biosilk Silk Therapy—Use it on wet hair after your shampoo, or work into dry hair before you style. This serum contains silk proteins and 17 of the 19 amino acids that help hair to reconstruct and revitalize itself for added strength and shine.
• Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum—This lightweight silicone serum penetrates hair strands and actually displaces water, constricting the hair and sealing it for a smooth, frizz-free look.
Being active in hot weather can also wreak havoc on your scalp, creating a lot more oil than usual, which result in itchy scalp and matted, dirty looking hair.
For those days in between washes, try a dry shampoo such as TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secrets or Redken Pillow Proof Dry Shampoo. These spray-on products absorb oil and give you just a little more time before your next wash, keeping your scalp feeling comfortable and your hair looking and smelling refreshed. Dry shampoos can also be used to add body when styling fine hair, or adding texture and grip to updos.
