My hair is naturally curly and fine. I blow dry it straight but then it sometimes curls up from the heat and humidity. Any recommendations??

Good luck with that one! I've got thick, naturally wavy/curly hair, and have pretty much given-up on fighting Vancouver's moist climate.

You need humidity fighting products. LOL. Really - I live in the South and have naturally curly hair. I have tried several products that claim to combat humidity and some have worked really well and others not so well. I have paid $ to $$ for products and have found that more expensive is not necessarily better. Some that have worked for me:

Currently using as a finishing spray to keep curls from being frizzy: Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Hair spray. They also have a anti humidity cream that would be great for curls... I use a color protecting cream from Matrix that conditions my curls so I did not want to add another cream.

Others I have used that worked
Nucleic A Botanicals Spray
Humectress
Tigi Bedhead Control Freak Serum
Redken has a couple

One I have not tried but is supposed to be really good is

Curl Friends High Humdity Gel

You could probably do an anti humidity search and find a ton of products.

I have the same problem. I use Matrix Sleek Look Shampoo & Conditioner and Redkin Glass 101 before blowdrying. After blowdrying my hair, I use a hot 1.5" barrel roller to straighten my hair. This routine seems to hold the frizzy flyaways at bay!!!

Hi - I'm new to the forum and have been perusing the "curly hair" threads! I have very dry, curly hair that goes BIG when exposed to humidity (my hairdresser says "the bigger the hair, the closer to God"!). So when my friend said she wanted to get married on a beach this summer, I cringed! I love the beach and spend a lot of time by the shore, but my hair is huge by the end of the day - definitley not the style I want for a wedding...

Anyway, the hairdresser that did my hair for the day used an Aveda Anti-Humidity conditioner and spray. I asked her to flat iron my hair because at least that takes some of the volume out when my hair starts to curl. However, even after an afternoon on a very foggy beach, not one curl came into my hair. Not even a frizz. I was absolutely blown away!! Never has a product done this for me. Unfortunately, I didn't get the name of the product - the hairdresser just told me that it was an Anti-humidifer by Aveda. I plan on getting some very soon!

I've got spiral curls and don't even TRY to straighten it. To keep the frizzies down, define curls and keep it soft, I use a lot of different products - routine below and hope it will help someone else.

1. Shampoo every other day with SuddzFX and follow with conditioner.
2. On the days I don't shampoo, I still condition it in the shower with SuddzFX Moxee or Aquafix. I comb it through wet hair, pin it up and leave it in while I complete my shower.
3. Rinse conditioner and apply nickel size amount of camellia oil to hair. Follow up with twice the amount of jojoba oil and comb it through to distribute. Put it up in a turban and leave it up for about 10 minutes.
4. Apply nickle size amount of Suddz Zenyth [mixed with some SKB] and distribute through damp hair.
5. Apply quarter size amount of Aquage detangler [mixed with SKB] and distribute through damp hair.

At this point, I scrunch and let my hair air dry. Sometimes I'll follow up with a styling gel but most of the times I don't. Curls are left well defined spirals and hair is very soft and shiny.

I've been using SUDDZFX line for the last year and it's been my HG for dry, natural curls. The addition of SKB to leavein products just seems to have kicked it up a notch.

I'm testing out some DIY hair mists for those days when it's really humid but can't yet report on their effectiveness, I'll share the results with ya'all when I do.

If anyone wants to know more about SUDDZFX, there's an extremely long-winded review from yours truly in the Product Review section!

I actually experience the same thing. Whenever i go back to asia my hair is worst. I have a really thick and wavy hair, i didnt realize that humidity is causing my hair to appear thicker and more wavy. I was puzzled before but now i know.

I would also recommend avedas anti frizz balm. I forget the name of it but it comes in a blue and white jar. That stuff with the ojon and your frizzies don't stand a chance!!!

I've been fighting the curlies and grizzies almost all my life. As I got older the curlier it got. So now I'm not fighting it anymore especially when in Asia. I use Ojon's curl cream and Skinactives Seakelp to form my hair after each wash ( I wash only twice a week ) and it helps to keep the curlies looking good. Very Happy In other words, I've learnt how to live with it.

I have the same problem & use flat iron to make it straight. But under the rainy days, it turns to curl again easily. I tried to perm it straight & it lasted 6 months only.

Have any of you used Curl Keeper made by Curly Hair Solutions?

It is the most effective product I have ever used in combating humidity and frizz. Seriously.

As summer approaches I'll get the Aveda products (love the smell of them too). I have my hair straightened every three months - without it my hair turns into a bush - vavoom! I have very thick hair too. With straightening and using a flat iron it looks good - straight, soft and with just the right amount of body. But must manage the humidity when it hits. (can be quite the battle!)

my friend makes an amaaaaazing hairspray, it uses nanotechnology, but it keeps frizzies out of my hair and my black friend's hair as well

unfortunately he only sells it to his salon customers :/

I have the same type of hair, and would love to know this, as well! Nothing seems to work. I can spend a ton of time styling my hair, but as soon as I step outside, all my work is gone!

I use Waleda hair oil on the ends. It works really well and you only need a tiny bit. I've always wanted to try living proof too.

To everyone posting products - Please clarify if you are referring to products that benefit curly hair or curly hair that is styled straight.

The original poster has curly hair but wears hers straight, as do I. However, I can tell that most people are posting products that work for keeping curly hair from frizzing, not curly hair that is worn straight from frizzing. Those are two completely different things.

Thanks!!!

I have mostly straight hair that has a very slight wave when wet, and it tends to look a little fuzzy at times (maybe due to highlighting it with bleach), so I use Moroccanoil, and what an awesome product it is. It leaves my hair super smooth and sleek, and if you put a tiny dab on after blow drying, it looks even better.

Their deep conditioning masks are wonderful, too. My hair is so soft and smells delicious after using it.

Two other recommendations I have are the Garnier Glistening Drops, which are much cheaper, and Kerastase's Oleo Relax Serum. Both are also very good, but I think I prefer the Moroccanoil a little bit more.
