Hair Forecast: 100 percent chance of frizz – Tips from Innovations Salon – Sometimes knowing if you’re going to have a good (or bad) hair day seems as unpredictable as Mother Nature (Spring 2013, we’re talking to you).

Let’s focus on spring/summer humidity…Hair is porous, so it absorbs moisture from the air. As water moves into the hair fibers, it rearranges their hydrogen bonds and turns those that are smooth and controlled more chaotic and roughed up—and what you see in the mirror is frizz.

Quick Fix: When you’ve got a the-sky-is-falling situation and need to pull hair back into a pony or a low chignon out-of-the-blue, reach for a bungee elastic (it’s like the Hunter boots of hair—it protects your style from a wash out, yet still looks chic). Bungee elastics are better to use than ordinary wrap-around bands because they don’t leave a crease and you can put your hair up and take it down as many times as you need to. Bungee elastics are straight pieces of cord that have little hooks on each end. Gather your hair in a ponytail with one hand, hook one end of the bungee into the base, wrap the elastic around the ponytail a few times and then secure the hook on the loose end back into the base.

Styling Solution: Sure you can flat iron like a mad person but lets be real, as soon as you see those wiry strands popping up minutes later, you’ll want to rip your hair out. Let the extra moisture work for your natural waves or curls. When moisture gets into hair it gives it more bounce and shape. Innovations Salon hair experts suggest applying Onesta Smooth & Shine Thermal Straightening Crème through damp hair to create a moisture-shield and stopping frizz. Put a small amount in your palms, then rake fingers through hair starting on the bottom layer and working up; wrap sections around two fingers as you blow dry. Your fingers act like a mold, creating a smooth shape. Aim the nozzle of the blow dryer directly at and down on strands, let them cool, then release that section and pick up the next.

Onesta Smooth & Shine Thermal Straightening Crème provides a smooth, soft feel to the hair, delivers optimal shine, and tames frizz for use with heat styling. With a natural polymer that provides improved humidity resistance, Smooth & Shine also improves flexibility and manageability all day long!
