Trying to find ways to give volume to fine, limp curls in heat and humidity? If so, here’s some help. Below are seven tried-and-true tips for keeping one’s hair volumized under hot conditions. Try them, and you will increase your chances of having silky, bouncy hair all of the time.
1. Get the right cut.
A key part of keeping fine hair healthy and able to hold bounce and curls is getting the right cut. Make sure your hair is trimmed regularly into some type of cut that helps you achieve a desirable hairstyle.
2. Keep your hair clean.
Give volume to fine, limp curls in heat and humidity instantly by starting with clean hair. If your tresses or less than sparkling, the dirt and grime on them will hold them down and prevent bounce anyway, regardless of the weather. Find the perfect balance between drying out hair with daily washing and causing greasy hair by avoiding your shampoo.
3. Use a bolstering shampoo.
Certain shampoos can bolster up thin hair. They do this by gently removing extra oil that causes hair to go limp. Go for this kind of shampoo versus a ‘generic’ one in order to prep your hair for the kind of curls that can withstand a hot, humid day.
4. Apply a conditioner for fine hair.
Give instant volume to fine, limp curls in heat and humidity by using a conditioner for fine hair. Many conditioners will hydrate hair without weighing it down. Many conditioners made for thick or normal hair will do just the opposite.
5. Prep hair with mousse or hairspray.
Never underestimate the power of a good mousse or hairspray. On days when the weather is full of the kind of stuff that makes hair frizz or drop, apply mousse or hairspray to your tresses prior to styling. This process will help it stay fresh, curly and bouncy under almost any condition.
6. Restyle your hair if necessary.
If all else fails, give volume to fine, limp curls in heat and humidity by restyling your hairdo. Halfway through the day, retouch your curls. Add on extra hairspray or mousse and spruce up your curls. This way, your hair will look good from sun-up to sun-down.
7. Re-examine your styling techniques.
Did you know that allowing your hair to cool before combing through a curl sets it? If you’re doing all of the above suggested tips, and your curls still always fall flat before noon, it may be time to re-examine your styling technique. Set up an appointment with a stylist or a friend with fantastic hair and show them your morning routine. Let these experts guide you through a few changes that will improve your looks.
