I live in Florida where it can get pretty humid but I've been able to work around it most of the time or my style will last at least long enough that I don't feel defeated, but I am going to a much hotter and humid climate in the coming months and I need to step up my hair game if I want my style to last longer than the walk between the front door and the car. I have ethnic mixed hair that is very curly. I normally just use an anti frizz styling cream from a brand called WEN, I add in a small amount of oil. Sometimes I use a dry styling oil or I will use coconut oil OR I will use a hair serum called Silk. I normally use these before I set my hair into pin curls (using heat usually at a medium setting). I have recently started using a pomade to make my look even smoother. It's just one that I found at a family member's house but I want to try Suavecita. Once my style is done I pump it with hairspray. I've experimented with several sprays but I want to know which ones you guys live by for dealing with the heat. I'm about to resort to using super glue! (Just kidding).
So basically I have no trouble getting the looks that I want. I just need to them to last! HELP!
Such good questions Alfre and I love your look! Although I am not ethnically mixed I do have very thick curly hair and I run into the same problems. I use It's A 10 after I wash and before I style it dry and I sleep with my hair in a satin sleeping cap. I would also be very interested in what other girls use to keep their styles looking great.
maybe you can try hair extensions.
