Quick Tips for Taming Frizzy Hot Weather Hair

The weather is definitely heating up, and with it goes the volume (ahem, fluffiness) of my hair.

As someone whose hair when left to its own devices is what can only be described as ‘frizztastic’ (not a word but should be), I’m constantly on the prowl for any product to manage frizz in my hair.

And there is one particular product I first bought last summer that has been helping me control my mane.

So here are some ways to use it (and one definite way to avoid) to control hot weather frizz.


Ouai Wave Spray

In terms of beauty lines that are so aesthetically pleasing you’re not sure the products will actually live up to the looks, Ouai so fell into that category for me that for ages I was almost nervous to order anything of theirs.

Thankfully, those dark days have been behind me for some time now and I am happy to report that – for my hair at least – their products deliver on their claims, and Wave Spray is a firm favourite.

On the hair

This rice protein-enriched spray is essentially a texturiser designed to offer hold and volume. But since my hair is already enormous and it was roughly 100,000 degrees when I first tried it, instead of using this to create bigger waves I decided to try this out as an at-root volumiser.

And the results…? You’ve seen the film There’s Something About Mary right? Well, due to some overzealous spritzing and ruffling on my part the first time I used this, my hair genuinely ended up with more volume than it has ever had.

Yes, just think of me as Cameron Diaz just without the cheekbones, bank account or acting ability.

And although I’ve definitely scaled back on the amount I spritz on since then (!), if I’m looking for volume or hold this is one of my absolute go-to products for its sheer efficacy.

Great for: Natural-looking volume. Also the scent – a gorgeous blend of lemon, cedarwood, magnolia, lily and blackberry.

Not-so-great for: The slightly sticky texture this leaves in hair after use (kind of wishing I hadn’t used that Something About Mary reference now…). It’s no worse than the finish from an average hair spray though so it doesn’t bother me particularly.

What other people have to say

Customers on the Cult Beauty website are raving about this product – from the smell to the application. One customer says “This is my second bottle.  Mainly use on hair to calm the dry curly frizz on days that I don’t have wash. Adds shine and smells good.”

While another writes “Love this product. Smells gorgeous and leaves my hair and body really soft.”


The Takeaway

While summer makes my hair do some pretty weird things, increasing volume at the roots while defrizzing the lengths and ends keeps my strands from returning to their natural (triangular) shape.

Ouai’s Wave Spray is from £12.00 on the Ouai website/$14.00 for 1.7 oz/ 50 ml, Sephora US.
