I don’t deal with it; I just suffer. I don’t like it up, but I will put it up if I am excessively sweaty.

Braid it. I took a wholly unflattering picture the othr day when it was 105F and threatening thunderstorms. Anything else doesn’t do the job Laughing



I have a couple of Ficcare clips as well, and you can do some very easy but dressier looking updos with them. http://www.ficcare.com/Collections.aspx?catId=1

Lol I couldn’t stand it and got a haircut recently (it’s still long enough to put up). I wear my hair up 90% of the time.. keeps it off my neck and out of my face. Messy buns are my friend.

I usually cut it short and end up regretting it later.  This year I told myself no matter how tempted I am to cut my hair, I just won’t do it.

I put bit of coconut oil balm on it when its still wet and then braid, it reallllly helps hold the braid or reduce the frizz of a pony tail/bun. Or I will air/blow dry and then straighten and hairspray, and it goes back to being kinda wavy, but with the oil there is way less frizz in the wave.

I second the coconut oil idea! It makes my hair so shiny and definitely helps with the humidity! Here in Indiana the humidity in the mornings is often ~80% so it’s like, why do I even bother? lol Also, I’ve found that Redken’s velvet gelatine helps a bit too! This picture is from Relay for Life last month.. I was outside most of the day and only had a little bit of coconut oil in it and it’s not very frizzy at all! 🙂

My hair is absolutely straight and curls at the tips when it’s humid. My hair lives in a ponytail when it’s hot or humid, and I’ve had hair down to my waist for most of my life.

I have long hair. In the summer I like to wear it up in a bun. Here are some ideas…
