How to Save Your Blow Out from April’s Showers


If April’s rainy weather already has you down in the dumps about your ‘do; have no fear! There are ways to ensure that your tresses stay smooth regardless of the weather forecast, and that begins when you start styling. Here are a few tips to keep in mind next time you opt for sleek strands:

Spritz to Straighten – Straightening balms have a tendency to weigh down your mane, but Living Proof’s Straight spray smoothes and protects without the worry of buildup. The brand’s patented Healthy Hair Molecule forms a shield around each strand to not only smooth but protect from heat damage.

Run a Temperature – The higher the heat, the straighter the strand? Sorry, but it doesn’t work that way. The maximum temperature a blowdryer or a flat iron should reach is 365 degrees. ghd’s Eclipse Iron has tri-zone technology to heat the plate evenly to the optimal temperature to smooth out pesky fly aways.

Heal and Hydrate – As much as we put our hair through, the heat damage from our styling tools add up quickly, leaving your locks dry and crispy. Sally Hershberger ‘s Hyper Hydration Spray Serum uses Smart Keratin to fill in breaks, smooth strands, and add shine as the perfect finishing touch.

Hold It In – Once your tresses are perfectly styled, hairspray becomes an absolute must to ensure it lasts the rest of the day. John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Hairspray creates an instant barrier to fight frizz, rain or shine, and even has a UV filter to protect your hair hue from the sun when it finally peeks out from behind the clouds.
