One concern I see for ladies hair in Portsmouth, Chesapeake, or Old Towne is frizzy untamable hair. The summer humidity in our area brings flowers, trees, natural beauty and waves of moisture causing your hair to curl and frizz.
Oh Humid Portsmouth…Hair’s Worst Enemy
Chances are, if you live in Hampton Roads Virginia, you know the never-ending battle of your hair’s worst enemy, humidity. It feels like every other day it rains in Portsmouth, and did you know the weather forecast is calling for the rainiest summer in years?

Summer Hair Tips For Portsmouth and Chesapeake’s Rampant Moisture
Try not to wash your hair as much
I know, it sounds crazy, but over washing your delicate hair can strip natural oils that help keep your hair moisturized and healthy. It would seem like washing your hair a lot would help. But this is a misnomer. Too much shampoo actually will make your more vulnerable to the frizz.
Choose products that don’t have harsh chemicals
Sulfate-free, sulfate-free, sulfate-free! I cannot stress that enough. Sulfates are a curly haired girls worst nightmare, and probably why your hair is frizzy. Sulfates are notorious for being harsh on your precious hair and damaging that amazing new color you just revamped. So maximize that color, and dodge the frizz, look for Sulfate-free beauty products.
Don’t forget the conditioner.
Letting your hair dry up is an automatic express lane that takes your hair from smooth to a frizzy unyielding mess. Conditioner is your hair’s best friend. You can even skip shampooing every once in awhile and head straight to the conditioner. This will preserve your hair’s natural oils. If you have finer hair, stick with a lightweight formula and layoff the roots.
Take sometime out of your busy day and treat yourself to a hydrating mask once a week. This will ensure that your hair is getting all the tender loving care it needs to block the frizz and lock the moisture. There are special treatments for every kind of hair, ask your stylist for what they recommend. For a little at home remedy, try coconut oil (I think this is ideal for more curly hair). Coconut oil will leave your hair refreshed with fatty acids that strengthen your hair, resulting in less frizzy split ends = frizz free hair with a healthy shine.
If you have time, avoid the heat and let your hair dry naturally every once in awhile. And if you are feeling real adventurous, skip the flat iron and rock a natural look. Add a little product to maximize the moisture. For coarse/curly hair try a cream hydrator, and for finer hair try a light mist of Argan oil. Embrace what your mama gave you; trust me, your hair will thank you.
Try a quick, foolproof hairstyle for your summer days.
Since we are trying to avoid the flat iron and blow outs for a day or so, go for a heat free texturizing Sea Salt Spray. Get the beach day hair, without the beach; texturizing salt spray will leave your hair with soft beach waves and a hip bohemian look. Be careful to add some Argan oil into the mix, because salt will pull out moisture and natural oils.
