Here's how to keep your locks straight (and frizz-free) this summer

Whether your hair is poker straight or big and wavy, protecting it from summer humidity can get complicated! Here are our professional tips for combatting frizz.

Maintaining good haircare habits

First of all (and this goes for hair that is straight, wavy or curly): the better hydrated your hair, the stronger it will be. Nourished hair is easier to style and also more resistant to external aggressors, such as humidity. This is why it's important to have a complete haircare routine that includes a shampoo, conditioner, serum, mask and oil – all formulated for your hair type.

If your hair is damaged, the fight against frizz starts here! Don't hesitate to get your ends trimmed as split ends and broken hairs often look frizzy even if your hair isn't. In addition, consider switching out your regular haircare products with those from a nourishing and repairing range like Absolute Repair Lipidium or Pro Fiber by L'Oréal Professionnel. You will quickly feel a difference as your hair builds up strength!

Focus on a complete styling routine

In an ideal world, a quick pass of the hair straightener over your hair would be enough to combat any frizz and curl brought on by humidity or heat. But, we don't live in a perfect world! Fortunately hair professionals have developed styling products that help us in the quest for perfect hair, whatever the weather! For a care treatment dedicated to smoothing, ask your stylist about the Liss Unlimited range by L'Oréal Professionnel.

From there you can benefit from the help of a styling cream, which will fix the texture of your hair post-straightening. Liss & Pump by L'Oréal Professionnel will certainly do the trick! As always, finish with a generous mist of hairspray: it will leave a light, subtle veil over your locks that will prevent moisture from getting into your hair fiber without any stiffness. Summer doesn't have to be your enemy anymore!
