We're not sure which season is more brutal on our hair, winter or summer. Both bring extreme weather and temperatures that make our locks look like a hot mess. From the humidity in the summer to the icy rain and snowfall in the winter, our mane is all over the place. There are some days not even the best products can save our heads. Sometimes it's out of our control. However, there are some hair faux pas we can control (at least most of them).
Here are some hair no-no's that never work, no matter how trendy they may become.
Too Much Product
Ugh. This one is so hard to avoid. Especially if you have any sort of curl in your hair. The best way to combat frizz is to keep your hair as moisturized as possible. Also, try a brazilian keratin treatment to tame your tresses while still keeping your natural wave. Another great tip is to only dry your hair to about 80% and then wrap it in a low bun and allow it to air dry. You'll be amazed at the frizz-free soft wave this technique produces. Also, try drying your hair the night before. By morning, it will be chilled out and your natural oils will help tame frizz.
Orange brassy hair isn't cute on anyone except a tabby cat. If you're naturally dark-haired and want that J-LOesque hair color, do not attempt this at home or at your local Super Cuts! You will fail and turn out looking scarier than Carrot Top. Leave the major color changes to the experts or you could end up brassy. Even worse --your hair could fall out. When attempting a major color change, ask friends for recommendations, go to the best possible person you can find. This is not the time for Groupon! Trust us!
