Pierre Matta of Frédéric Fekkai Palm Beach Hand-Picks A Few Anti-Humidity Brews
It’s summer, frizz happens.
But does it have to be so epic? So out of control?
Not at all, says Pierre Matta, stylist at Frédéric Fekkai Salon in Palm Beach.
By deploying a few tricks (below) and a few stealth products (also below), you can keep a line on frizz even when the humidity has reached insanity levels.
TIPS + TRICKS
1. Start de-frizzing in the shower. The drier your hair, the more prone to frizz. The shower is a great place to apply moisture. Stay away from shampoo with sulfates because it will dry out your hair even more. I suggest The Tamed One Anti-Frizz Shampoo by The One by Frédéric Fekkai. It’s infused with French sea lavender and contains a smoothing marine complex that will help tame hair.
2. Add-in a serum or cream to your product lineup. For added protection, once you finish washing your hair, apply a serum or cream. These can help smooth hair down, and can be used with or without heat to help fight frizz. My favorite is The Tamed One Anti Frizz Balm by The One by Frédéric Fekkai. And my go-to oil is the Fekkai PrX Reparatives Mending Elixir. This contains argan extract, which helps mend the hair to shiny smoothness.
3. Lay off heat or go ionic. If you aren’t ready to quit heat, at least buy an ionic hair dryer. Ionic technology helps break up water molecules into smaller clusters, leading to a shorter drying time and less damage. If you’re a salon “frequent flyer,” make sure your stylist knows how to do a great blowout, and that your hair is dried at the root before you leave the salon. Yes you can DIY, and a heated brush will help dry and style your hair at the same time. But just remember, a pro stylist will know how to make your hair look great even if your strands aren’t very cooperative. This will allow you to rock the long-wear style of your dreams even in a hot and humid environment.
