Help. I am so tired of my hair looking horrible. I live in hot humid Florida and I seem to have tried all the over the counter stuff (hairspray, mouse, gel, etc). Nothing will hold my style. I blow dry, and then curl, go outside and my hair just wilts. Does anyone know of any product that will hold a hairstyle in humid weather?

Hi rileygirl,

My hair is the same ... and what I learned was that the single most important thing to do is get a really good stylist to cut your hair properly.

My stylist cuts my hair to suit both "me" and my hair ... and once that's done, a little bit of the right product will do wonders. Laughing

Failing that, a good body perm might be in order. Very Happy

Good luck

Mary

I wish I knew the answer to this as well. I agree that a good cut will help, but when it's hot and humid, I don't even bother styling my hair. I spray a curl definer on it, let it air dry before I leave the house, and make sure I have a clip in my purse. Confused

Me too, living in Tx on the Gulf coast is like Fla, in the hot and humid sense. I use a leather headband alot, ala Reese Witherspoon. NOthing I've found truly controls the wilts, but that said, a good haircut def. helps. Good luck- let us know if you find something wonderful.

Thanks everyone. Yes, I agree on the good haircut, which I do feel I have. I have tried to research and have come up to 2 that "sound" like they will work. 1 is by Phyto (can't remember the name off the top of my head) and the other is Aussie - both the Sprunch and/or D-humidify. I bought the 2 Aussie products 1st, just this morning, so I will try them out and report on how they work. If anyone has tried these products let me know. Thanks again for the help!

My hair is long, and prone to waves/curls. I feel like when it's humid, mousse seems to help retain styling I do to my hair. I know hairspray/many gels definitely works against my hair when it's even remotely humid. It seems like they just make my hair sticky and flat. One product I really like is called John Freida brilliant brunette shine shock. It's kind of a silocone based hair serum that helps smooth down unrulies and I apply it to my ends to keep curls soft. They have it for other hair colors too though. Smile

I just reread my post and wanted to clarify: I'm recommending 2 different things; A. mousse and/or B. A silicone serum. The JF product is not a mousse! Sorry if that was confusing.

Well, my 1st day using the Aussie. I would rate Sprunch as a 2-3 on a scale of 10. Though it leaves your hair soft, and not stiff, it also does not seem to hold either. The Dehumidify hairspray, that I will give a 5-6 as this does hold for the most part, but my hair still went pretty flat in a short time. So, I am still searching!

Rileygirl, what is the natural texture/type of your hair? The only other suggestion that I have is this (although since my hair is prone to be more curly wavy, this might just work for me). I use hot rollers after blow drying my hair. I love them. I have been using them since I was probably 12. Anyway, after that if I usually either: don't do anything else (ie skip product), apply a mousse/serum, or if I really need some hold, I rub together a small amount of castor oil in my hands, run a tiny bit of water over them, and then kind of move my hands through the bottom half of my hair. I know it sounds weird, but it really makes the curl hold. For straight styles, I have a Wigo Jade straight iron (similar to Chi) that really straightens out my hair, then I apply a serum to the ends. Good luck, sorry those products didn't work out for you!

Olyn - my hair is straight, thick and fine. I have a horrible combination! I have tried hot rollers, mousses, etc. Nothing seems to work. I think I am going to try the Phyto product next that I mentioned about and/or keep searching. They used to make a line called Fudge that supposedly was for people in the humid south, but I have not heard anything about this line for a long time, so I kind of figured it must not be any good! Thanks for trying. I'll post if I find something!

rileygirl, Bumble and Bumble has a product called something like "Beach Spray". It's a little black spray and it helps create a "relaxed beach look", with some curls and waves. Alternatively, I use Frederick Fekkai Glossing Cream for the ends to keep some hold. It's not bad. Let us know about the Phyto product. Good luck!

sebastian moulding mud.

get the right 1!!( the 1 in the dark orange tub, the mud inside should be gray and hard and dry)

it's the only thing that holds my hair in shape whenever i go back to asia where is is humid and sitcky..

dry hold, looks very natural, great for volume!
just use a dab!! too much n it will make the hair sink..
