3. Myth or Truth: Humidity-fighting products: Do they really keep summer hair frizz free for as long as they claim to?
Truth: Yes, because they contain silicone and dimethicone: These agents protect and smooth the hair cuticle.
L’Oreal Everstyle smooth and shine serum ($5.59, drugstore.com). It’s a non-greasy formula that fights humidity (and frizz), without drying out your hair. You’ll have glossy, smooth locks.
John Frieda Frizz-Ease hair serum ($7.11, amazon.com). This product prevents against color fading from the harsh rays of the sun. It also protects against heat and UV damage while making your hair look shiny and sleek.
4. Myth or Truth: Do products that promise to repair damaged hair really work?
Truth: I personally believe in using natural oils applied while hair is wet and again as finishing product when you style your hair.
Garnier Fructis Haircare Sleek & Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment for frizzy, dry, unmanageable hair ($5.99, drugstore.com). You can even use it in the shower as a conditioner as well as a styling aid.

5. Myth or Truth: I’ve heard that you shouldn’t wash your hair every day. Is that really true, especially during the summer?
Truth: Well, this is a tough one! It really depends upon the type of hair. If it’s oily, then yes, you need to wash your hair frequently. If it’s been chemically treated, you should wash it less often. Don’t forget that you can wet your hair and use conditioner and not use shampoo to keep your locks looking fresh.
