I love the idea of wearing my hair down on my wedding day – my usualy daily hairstyle is loose curls, and I basically want a more sophisticated version of that for the big day. My problem is that I have super humidity prone middle-eastern hair. I mean it looks great when its dry out, but once there’s a whiff of humidity the whole thing goes up in an almost afro. I already use the shampoo and conditioner that is sulfate etc free (Moroccan oil smoothing shampoo + conditioner) but that doesn’t seem to help, and I have yet to find a spray that works (ex: i currently use Living Proof). I’ve heard mixed things about keratin treatments, but I think I might try one at the start of the summer just to see if it will help. (Wedding is in September so it shoudl be out of my hair by then if i don’t like it). Any advice?? Thanks!

I’v never had a keratin treatment but I heard they can cause major breakage since the influx of protein actually weakens the hair shaft, instead of strengthening it.
In my opinion, you should look around Pinterest and find a pretty updo. If you wear your hair down, you will be worried about it your whole wedding.

My hair and humidity or sweat do not mix well. I know this about myself. As much as I love the loose curls and half-down looks I saw on Pinterest, I knew those styles wouldn’t work for my hair on a hectic wedding day. I chose to have an updo so I wouldn’t have to worry about my hair. Even with an updo I still could tell my hair had gotten a little frizzy so I was even happier with my decision to wear my hair up that day. I recommend not fighting your hair and picking a style that you know suits you and your hair type. It’s one less stress for you on that day!

Have you ever had a brazilian blowout? I used to live in the tropics and a blowout worked wonders for my hair (I still get them sometimes!). They typically last for 3 months (I’ve had them last longer though). I’m getting one before my wedding in June, I think I’ll get the blowout between 1-2 months beforehand. Go to the brazilian blowout website to find a salon near you that uses their products (some salons claim they use them but don’t, this makes the treatment less effective).
