The signature heat and humidity of a D.C. summer that we know all too well arrived with a bang last week and now many of us are trying to figure out how to deal with its impact on our hair! The Bazzak team is here with a couple product and styling recommendations to help fight the frizz and keep your locks manageable with all the elements of the season.
If you have fine hair we recommend a volumizing foam. Don’t fret if the word “foam” sounds old school as we have a true gem from Rene Furterer called Volumea — and it is absolutely amazing. Volumea is a complete line with a shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in styling products. While all are worth considering, we like the Volumea foam as it’s lightweight, clean, has an amazing aroma, and leaves your hair smooth and lush with added shine. Just pump a golf ball size amount into your hand and apply it to wet hair starting from the back to the front (this helps if you have too much product in your hair, so it will be directed to the back and not on the top of your head!), then just comb through and style as desired.
For those with curly hair or locks that have a tendency to become frizzy or wavy, it’s a good idea to opt for smoothing creams that act as a barrier between your hair and the humidity. One product that we’ve been recommending is a line from Aveda called Smooth Infusion, which consists of a shampoo, conditioner, and styling products. In particular, the Nourishing Styling Cream is phenomenal at fighting the frizz and will leave your hair sleek and protected from the deleterious effects of the sun, heat, and humidity. Just squeeze a nickel size amount into your hand and apply it to your wet hair from back to front and then comb through and style as desired.
All of these products and more can be found at Bazzak Salon. Stop by and visit us at 1110 King Street so you have the proper products to get you through the summer!
