Oh, summer. Although I love to love the season, I also have reasons to hate it. Aside from the sweltering heat and hot steering wheels it brings along with it, the lack of respect it has for my hair is one of my main reasons for the love/hate relationship I have towards the season. Though summer nights are some of my favorite, the humidity of the warm and rainy days are the worst. Because humidity can turn a great hair day into a bad one real quick, which is why finding summer hairstyles that put humidity in its place is so very important.
When I was living in Florida, humidity ruined my life as often as it could. Though this was a year-round weather condition, I felt it most during the summer. There's no feeling worse than getting your hair exactly how you want it before leaving the house just to have it frizz up and poof out as soon as you walk out of the door. One thing I had to learn with both my natural and relaxed hair was that no matter how I wanted to wear it, I had to choose a style that would beat humidity at is game.
