How to Style Hair in Humidity

The arrival of summer heat ushers in a wave of humidity, a phenomenon that can seemingly render hair styling an insurmountable challenge. As we delve into the underlying reasons and explore potential solutions, we must first grasp the intricacies at play. Humidity saturates the atmosphere with moisture, enveloping our hair and transforming straight locks into gentle waves, wavy tresses into elegant curls, and curly hair into exquisitely intensified coils. Scientifically speaking, this alteration occurs as humid air triggers the formation of hydrogen bonds between water molecules and the keratin proteins in our hair, ultimately unleashing curls and frizz. Now, the question remains – what must we do to triumph over this predicament? The key lies in harnessing the power of the right hair products, those fashioned and endorsed by skilled professional hair stylists.

When applying heat to your hair using a blow-dryer or hot tool, it is imperative to prioritize protection. To safeguard your precious locks from potential damage, it is strongly advised to use a heat protectant prior to styling. For optimum results in terms of volume and memory, we highly recommend the Virtue Volumizing Primer. This product effortlessly builds, lifts, and sets your hair.
