If there was a list of things we could banish from the world it would go like this: poverty, war, and the effect that humidity has on our hair. That might be a slight exaggeration, but there is no denying that although Hong Kong is an amazing city to live in, the humidity can really take it’s toll on us.
It doesn’t seem to matter how long we live here, the shock of the humidity after a cool winter never fails to take us by surprise. Not all hope if lost, of course! There are many easy and effective ways to take care of your hair during the hot and humid summer months, check out our 8 step guide on how to fight frizz for our top tips on how to maintain your mane over the next few months!
Another option is to go for a Brazilian Blowout, which is a treatment that coats your hair in a protective layer of protein for around 3 months so that your hair is silky and smooth no matter how many typhoons come around to destroy date night. Although not the cheapest treatment (usually around $1,500), these treatments are a sure fire way to ensure that humidity doesn’t ruin your hair for months on end and makes styling effortless, so you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on various treatment products. Still not sure about what a Brazilian Blowout is? Check out our full guide here!
Care for your hair with Keratin
Keratin is another amazing way to keep your hair smooth and tame during high humidity months. Keratin is is fairly similar to a brazilian blowout as they both smooth and straighten frizzy hair without damaging the hair follicle at the same time as holding in colour and adding shine to the hair for months at a time without any touch ups.
How does it work?
When going to a salon for a keratin treatment, your hair will be washed and the keratin product is put into your hair for about 30 mins before drying and being straightened using a flat iron. Since you’re leaving the salon with dry hair and the product still in your hair, shampooing is only advised after a 3 day period. Once three days are up, you’re free to wash your hair and feel fierce and frizz free!
