beauty + i hate this humidity

I really enjoy doing my hair and makeup. I'm good at it, and it's fun most of the time, until I perfectly blow out my hair for thirty minutes for it to be INSTANTLY destroyed in my ten-second walk from my front door to my car.

I'm not kidding.

In ten seconds, my hair went from Kate Middleton bouncy perfection to something I cannot even describe.

Thanks humidity.

I rarely wear my hair straight, and now that it's finally long enough to not annoy me when it's straight, I have felt the need to blow it out at every opportunity.

Y'all know my hair is naturally loose-ringlet curly, and honestly works better when it's humid outside. Why I have failed to acknowledge this when getting ready in the morning is just proving my own stupidity, but I digress.

New York City has been ridiculously disgusting lately, to the point that I actually bought a hair straightener on my way to work in a lame attempt to salvage my once sleek and straight hair.

Take a shot every time you hear someone in the Tri-State area complain about how hot and humid it's been.

Regardless, I’ve been doing my best to try out anti-humidity products so I can at least try to have straight-ish hair all day. Today I used a little cocktail of MoroccanOil’s Frizz Control spray and Oribe’s Anti-Humidity Spray. I’ll keep y’all updated on how well they work together.

I’ve used MoroccanOil for years now and it’s definitely one of the best. I used to use the entire Sleek and Shine line by Garnier Fructis when I started college, and I thought they worked really well for their price. Of course, anything by OGX is automatically amazing in my opinion, and even though I haven’t had the chance to test out the Kukui Anti-Frizz Hydrating Oil myself, based on their other products I would say it’s a winner.

If y'all have any anti-humidity tips, share them! I need all the help I can get!


  1. Humidity is the worst. I've just given up styling my hair when it's humid out. It goes up in a ponytail most days.

  2. This is exceptionally instructive substance and composed well for a change. It's pleasant to see that a few individuals still see how to compose a quality post! Humidity Chamber
