Hair vs. Humidity: How to Care for your Hair in the Summer

The Summer can be a pretty nasty time for your hair, no one can deny that. You make that transition from winter to summer, and suddenly, all of that preparation goes down the drain. Your hair becomes frizzy, or matted, and you just don’t know what to do with it; even a ceramic tourmaline ionic flat iron seems to yield no results. There is a scientific explanation for the state of your hair, don’t worry, and we’re going to go ahead and cover it before we discuss what you can do to correct the problem.

How to Care for your Hair in the Summer

A Scientific Explanation for the Failure of Your Ceramic Tourmaline Ionic Flat Iron

Humidity is definitively linked to hydrogen, and strangely enough, it has been scientifically proven that our hair just doesn’t do well when there is hydrogen in the air. Most of a hair is comprised keratin protein bundles, which is one of the connections, but the other type of connection in the hair, is the hydrogen bond. This is a more temporary bond, and here’s a fun fact: your hydrogen bonds will break every single time you wash your hair. In other words, that’s why your hair drives in one shape, and will actually retain that shape over time. That said, the more hydrogen you are dealing with, the bigger the problem you are going to have.

Keep your Hair Frizz-Free

If your goal is to keep your hair frizz free, then you’re going to need to target the root problem, no pun intended. It is recommended that you use a lightweight moisturizing formula that will serve to give your hair the moisture that it needs. There is a strong chance, however, that you’ve already done these things and you’re ready to move on to the next level. Maybe it isn’t doing enough for you, and maybe you want to take it a step further.

There are plenty of products in the HSI arsenal that can help you out considerably, for example, our thermal protectant is great for addressing problems that are brought on immediately by your flat iron. We always strongly recommend choosing a good heat protectant for your hair, especially if you’re about to head to the beach.

Also, take into consideration our Argan oil hair mask – it’s a 5-10 minute treatment for your hair that actually infuses protein back into your strands if they are dry or damaged. In a nutshell, it restores the hair’s natural elasticity in order to smoothen and take your unruly or frizzy hair. There are a number of ingredients that serve to help restore your hair, from Argan butter to Argan oil, and various vitamins that serve to nourish the hair from inside out. The result: silky-soft, shiny hair that is not only beautiful but also more manageable. Finally, make sure that you’re actually using professional ceramic flat irons rather than one that you would purchase from a drugstore or a retail store. You need something that is able to handle the hydrogen bonds and one that is able to distribute heat properly. If you’re ready to really take your hair into your own hands and make it look absolutely amazing, then it’s time for you to take a look at our products and see what we have to offer.

Our professional, salon grade products will give your hair the shine it needs, and you the ability to present your hair in the way that suits you best. This is your hair – make sure you’re taking care of it!


Thank you for the good tips.

Would love to try the Argan oil mask! I have semi-damaged hair and I’ve always wondered if I needed to undergo expensive Keratin treatments to recapture some moisture and softness.

I definitely would consider using your Argan oil hair mask as well, especially since I struggle to keep my hair frizz-free during the summer months.

My hair is currently really frizzy, with this hot, humid weather. I haven’t been styling it, due to this. I’ll have to try the argan oil mask and see if it helps.

I am definitely going to try your tips for the frizz. I am a natural curly hair woman and love my curls but live in Florida where humidity takes over! I am constantly carrying around my water bottle to keep moisture in my hair. I love my hair straight to, but have not found the proper methods for straightening.

I have never tried Argan Oil on hair but I’ve seen it all over. Shampoos, conditioners, and hair treatments. I would love to try the Argan oil hair mask since I regularly use heat stylers on my hair.

My hair gets so frizzy in the humidity. It seems like this would be great for me.

Zoey June 19, 2017

I have 4 daughters, all with very long thick brunette hair. Everyday I try to be creative, and unique when styling their hair. They each hav their very own style to match their personalities and it has be logical for whatever activities they might be doing, so it’s a huge task and challenge. Even more than that is my being concerned about what products are best and safest. Which are durable and save time? Hair products are an absolute must in our house, and more than anything I appreciate a brand that meets the needs and variety of a family like mine.

This is so true! Before I was a stylist I purchased any flat iron, but once I became a stylist, I can’t just purchase anything. You need something that will get your hair straight and keep it straight!
