Rock it like a Redhead in the Summer Heat
Hot weather can cause many beauty challenges but we redheads know all too well that heat and humidity can cause our lovely ginger tresses to go wild and frizz. Just because there can be some minor hair issues does not mean we have to have the summer time blues.
Here are great tips for the best ways to fight frizz even in the midst of a heat wave:
1. Avoid brushing: Brushing not only disrupts your hair’s cuticle but it can also stretch hair, leading to breakage and frizz. After shampooing, finger-comb or use a wide tooth comb to part and smooth your hair then add a touch of your preferred ” leave in conditioner” or anti- frizz product and allow your hair to air dry.
2. Look for protein in your Conditioner: A protein-infused conditioner will not only help you manage frizz, but it will help to create shine too.
3. Don’t cook your hair: When it’s hot outside, you wouldn’t turn on your oven, so why add heat to your hair? Blow drying in humidity and heat only encourages frizz. Minimize frizz by avoiding flat irons, curling irons, and limiting heat sources to a blow dryer with a diffuser.
4. Dry only the roots of your hair. If you are short on time but still crave a cute ‘do, blow dry only your roots, as it gives hair a lift, but helps you to avoid drying out the hair shaft and hair tips. Then pull hair back in a sleek pony for a sophisticated look or a messy, ballerina bun for those crazy busy days.
5. Go alcohol-free. Because alcohol can dry hair out, setting you up for frizz, look for alcohol-free products. That may mean switching to salon-quality shampoos, conditioners, and hairsprays because salon products don’t have to last as long on the shelf, so they don’t contain as many harsh ingredients — like alcohol — as supermarket and drug store products do– in the long run, it’s worth the investment and your hair will be healthier!

All redheads soon realize that as they walk down the street, people are drawn to the fiery hue. Now it is time to “up” the ante and make our red hair shine!
Many say that redheads look best in pale, pink or red colored lipstick, but with fall around the corner and warm tones all the rage, it must be asked: Can redheads wear brown lipstick? It is a fact, redheads must wear different color makeup than most blondes and brunettes; and the trick is to find the right color “tone” that
