StyleWatch Editors Want to Know Your Summer Hair Secrets!

04/29/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Who can actually say that they like their hair in the summer? As soon as the humidity rises, we find ourselves with a halo of hair hovering above our head. In our youth, a strategically placed bandanna would work to hide the offending mass of hair, but as working girls, that route doesn’t really fly. The quest for an alternative topical solution led us to a few frizz-fighters that actually work, including the classic Frizz-Ease and a cute headband, like Jessica Simpson’s. We want to know your solutions: How do you tame your frizzies in the summertime? What’s your summer hair secret?

I have long fine hair. During the summer instead of using a whole bunch of products to style my hair or get some kind of cute due, after a shower I will towel dry my hair as much as possible, then wrap my hair up in a bun. When it is dry, I take it out to reveal loose spiral curls that can look casual or look like i spent hours with a curling iron. It’s healthier for your hair to instead of using all those products and heat!

I love fedora hats! my hair is straight, shoulder lenght and I look great in fedoras! i have 7 of them and I know what I’ll buy next week for starting summer season! :)

I love Frederic Fekkai’s Summer Bandana. It protects your hair with SPF and for those with thick, poufy summer hair, the cream texture helps weigh it down and keep it smooth.

My hair is very thick and straight. In the summer i usually put it back in a ponytail or let it down.

I have thick shoulder length hair and I never know what to do with it. I usually just throw it up into a ponytail or twist. I wish there was a way that I could feel comfortable wearing it down. Any ideas??

Okay, a week ago I went to a stylist who must have hated me. I don’t know what crime I committed against her, but I am very, very sorry. To exact her revenge, this lady hacked away at my bust length wavey hair until it was a collar bone length mess of choppy layers! I left the salon in tears, it was just awful. I’m a very long-hair-one-length kind of chick, and this is soooo not me. It actually looks like “the Rachel” which wouldn’t be so bad if it was 1995.

In the mean time, to camouflage my hair disaster, I’ve made myself learn a few new easy updo’s and purchased a bunch of those really wide headbands. They’re actually very cute! Can’t wait ’til it grows back, though!

My Magic Combination: Neutrogena Triple Moisture Daily Deep Conditioner (Walmart et al) and Generic Silk Treatment (from Sally’s, better than Biosilk.) After shampooing, put conditioner in and clip it up while you finish showering, rinse hair last. Use silk treatment while damp, then style. These two are the best hair products I’ve tried, and best of all, you can get them both for less than $13! Erica K, 22, Broken Arrow, OK.

I have thin, curly hair, NOT a good combo, and especially during the summer the curls look dry and messy. I recently tried Pantene Pro-V Style Texturize Spray Wax.

i have natrually wavy hair, but during the summer months the heat turns it into a head of frizz!! so i let my hair dry naturally (scince the blowdryer just seems to add to the frizz)and then run my straightner threw just the top and bottom layer. i still get the body i need from my waves, but the frizz is sanwiched in between the two layers! also a really cute look i am trying to pull off is a low side pony with a twist. all i do is pull my hair into a side pony, tie it with a clear elastic hairband, seperate it just above the band, and then flip the band threw the seperated part! it looks so classy and chic and if you tie your whole look together with a printed head band or head scarf, you will look like you just stepped out of hollywood….which is good for a wisconsin girl like me! =]

I only blow dry my hair halfway, then let the rest dry on it’s own for summery, after the beach look!
