Sticky weather and dry heat are a recipe for disaster when it comes to hair. Luckily celeb stylist Sean Jahanbigloo of LA's Juan Juan Salon gave us the low-down on how to beat the heat no matter what your hair type is. To manage thick hair like Leona Lewis Jahanbigloo recommends using texturizing creams and sprays to help create more movement and give locks a frizz-free shine.
Lily Collins embraces her thick mane with slightly curled ends and scattered layers for a hairstyle that'll last even when the temperature rises. "Stay away from mousse and volumizing products because you don't need to create more volume; with thick hair (it) will just weigh it down," says Sean Jahanbigloo.
If you have fine hair like Jennifer Aniston, Sean Jahanbigloo recommends washing it every two-three days when it's humid out. "Stay away from heavy conditioners, oils and pomades so hair can maintain its body without looking greasy and oily," he says.
Sean Jahanbigloo knows just how to handle Cameron Diaz's fine hair since he's actually styled it before. He suggests using mousses and volumizing lotions to help create more lift while still protecting the fine strands from frizz.
To keep the shape of your curls in humid climates use products that are designed to enhance them or activate the shape like sprays and creams. Sean Jahanbigloo advises avoiding alcohol-based products for curly-haired girls like Jordin Sparks as they tend to dry out hair, which can lead to frizz.
Since curly hair tends to look better with humidity as long as there's no frizz, try mixing up your hairstyle to help with the heat. Pull your curls into a cute updo or letting them flow free like Maggie Q.
If you have coarse hair like Chanel Iman the key to battling the heat is by using straightening creams and oils to help control it while adding shine and keeping frizz to a minimum. A big no-no for coarse locks is volumizing products. "It will actually make it frizz more out of control," says Sean Jahanbigloo.
For coarse hair like J.Lo's, Jahanbigloo recommends using a moisturizing mask once or twice a week to help keep locks hydrated. And if you find your hair damaged by the heat try salvaging it by using products that block humidity like Kerastase's Oleo Relax.
