Glam Slam: Fight Summer Frizz!

I am swapping hot, sunny So Cal for hot, sunny and HUMID So Car… as in South Carolina for a trip back home. Help!!! My hair is going to freak out!

Celebrity Stylist and Alterna’s Global Creative Director Michael Shaun Corby comes to the rescue! Michael Shaun, who has worked with Rosario Dawson, Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton says all hair types can suffer from Summer frizz. He shares his tips for beating Summer frizz and keeping hair looking healthy.

“Fighting frizz starts in the shower. Use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner that will smooth the hair cuticle - I recommend Alterna’s Caviar Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, which contain a moisture barrier to help eliminate frizz. Because Summer involves so many damaging elements (sun, chlorine, heat, etc) I recommend using an ultra hydrating hair masque once a week, like Alterna’s Caviar Masque to keep hair in great shape. Every Alterna product contains UVA/UVB protection.”

CURLY HAIR
Work Hemp with Organics Texturizing Glaze into damp hair - this adds texture, separation, and definition and really enhances curls without weighing them down.

Use a small amount of Hemp with Organics Sheer Pomade and use fingers to twist, shape and scrunch curls. You’ll get mega shine and a smooth look and will be protected from frizz.

Let hair air-dry or use a diffuser to blow-dry hair.

STRAIGHT HAIR
Spray damp hair with a thermal protectant like Alterna’s Caviar Styling Tonic, which primes the hair for heat styling by creating a protective barrier.

Use a wet-to-dry flat iron to lock in moisture and fight frizz/flyaways.

Apply Alterna’s Summer Hair Rx Hemp Spray Shine for extra frizz protection and a shiny, smooth finish.

WAVY HAIR
Play up your natural waves by spraying a texturizing spray on damp hair like Alterna’s Summer Hair Rx Hemp Ocean Waves.

Work a small amount of Hemp with Organics Repair Gloss throughout hair to smooth the hair without losing texture.

Let hair air dry.

FOR ANY HAIR TYPE
Summer is the perfect season to try some of my favorite hairstyles. A simply low ponytail or a laidback bun can be ultra sophisticated and take less than 5 minutes. Try some pretty embellished headbands for instant glamour. These are easy styles to hide frizz!
