5 Things You Should Be Doing to Save Your Hair from the Heat
Sprays and shampoos and serum--oh my!
The first step is admitting you have a problem. The second? Realizing you cannot do it alone. Yes, we are talking about how to save your hair from Texas’s sizzling temps. Whether your hair is frizzy, flat or just plain finicky, here are five ways to fight the heat.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Good hair starts with good hair health, so make sure you are giving your locks a drink every now and then, but especially in the summer when your skin and scalp are dry.

Go with The Flow
In this heat, sometimes you just have to stop trying so hard and let nature take its course. That said, we still like to call in the reinforcements to make sure that said “natural effect” happens exactly as we want it to. Find the perfect salty spray that gives you the ideal “I woke up like this” look. After all, Beyoncé is a Texan.

Remember That Oils Are Your Friend
After you’ve hydrated your hair, it’s time to feed it. High quality oils mimic hair’s natural oil which is pure heaven for anyone with course hair. Hair oils also block humidity which takes the “oh, it’s the weather” excuse out of the equation--plus products are so advanced these days that you can apply them to wet or dry hair.

Maybe you haven’t used a leave-in product since middle school, but it’s time to go back to your roots. Leave-in treatments are perfect for taming frizz while you are going about your day. Similar to a leave-in-conditioner, but often with an oil infusion, these products fight for your look by taming flyaways, increasing shine and smoothness and protection from your hair tools that are prone to frying your already dry summer hair. Think of it as a multi-tasking BB Cream for your face.

Be A Dirty Diva
This trick is for all of you who struggle with flat hair. That whole “hair looks better the next day” thing is especially true for you. So stop shampooing in the shower and grab a good dry shampoo that sucks up oil and pumps up the volume and rest assured your curls will linger longer and your body will bounce long into the hot Texas night.
