As things heat up, don’t get frizzified … embrace your curls and waves!

Let’s face it—as the weather gets warmer, our hair gets bigger—whether we want it to or not! Heat and humidity leaves most of us at war with the natural texture of our locks. We try to keep them straight and sleek but we end up just frying them with hot tools. We at Lock & Mane urge you to embrace your curls and waves this season! With proper maintenance, your curls can look wild and sexy, not messy and frizzy.
Here are Lock & Mane’s Top 5 Tips for luscious, sexy curls this spring and summer!
The French hair geniuses at Leonor Greyl recommend Algues et Fleurs styling spray ($35, lockandmane.com), a curl enhancing spray that protects hair from the elements (environmental and heat) while keeping it light and movable. Bonus: It’s alcohol-free! This spray can be used on damp hair, or on dry hair – and the smell is divine. We recommend reapplying the Algues et Fleurs throughout the day to for defined, frizz-free and sultry loose curls like Taylor Swift’s at the recent Academy of Country Music Awards.
2. Deep Condition!
The best way to make curls look sexy (not messy) is to keep hair healthy and moisturized. A deep conditioning treatment every week or two will minimize frizz and keep your curls shiny and healthy. We at Lock & Mane love frizz fighting conditioning treatments like Rene Furterer’s famed Myrrhea Anti-Frizz Silkening Masque. ($23, lockandmane.com)
3. Leave Your Curls Alone!
The curl geniuses at Ouidad also suggest that you let your curls dry naturally, with no heating tools. The less you handle or play with your hair, the better off you are – don’t run fingers through it or touch it too much.
4. Leave-In Conditioner!
The curly girls at Lock & Mane absolutely swear by Leave-In Conditioners, which add much needed moisture to thirsty, frizzy curls. We adore Mixed Chicks Leave-In ($20, lockandmane.com), a favorite of Halle Berry, Ciara and other curly haired Hollywood beauties. The lightweight leave-in fights frizz, defines curls and locks in moisture.
5. Just Go With It!
If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. When the forecast calls for all rain or 100% humidity, the best thing to do is put away the baseball cap and give in– rock your luscious waves! Luckily there are a ton of texturizing sprays on the market these days that can add body and curl to fine or straight hair but also control frizz and add definition to curly hair. We adore Jonathan Product Spray Dirt ($29, lockandmane.com) which adds body but is slightly tacky for extra control of pesky frizzies and flyaways.
