Humidity and I are not friends. Any chance of my hair surviving a humid day in Chicago is slim to none. Some days we have 89% humidity in the summer (which is sometimes more than a tropical island) and when that happens I have to prepare for my already naturally frizzy hair to react in that not so flattering way. I’m sure most of you can tell I have a lot of hair and it can sometimes become very difficult to maintain. Luckily, top knots are in and I’ve been embracing them even more lately! I am happy to report there is hope and I’ve been using some great products to help deal with even the most humid days. I don’t like to use too much product in my hair, but these have been miracle workers! I am all for trying out different products but the ones below really work, and that’s saying a lot coming from me! Today, I’m sharing my top 5 hair products for those “my hair is out of control” kind of days!

My Top 5 Hair Products for Dealing with Humidity

1. Living Proof Nourishing Oil 


This stuff is amazing and it doesn’t leave your hair feeling greasy at all.  I use this after I shower with just about 2 pumps and I’m good. It cuts my hair drying in half and makes my hair feel so soft and shiny. Also, it really does help with frizz. My hair has been way more “calm” and frizz-free after using  it.

2. Eufora Smooth’n Frizz Control Shampoo

I love Eufora for so many reasons. I’ve been using it for a long time since my hairstylist recommended it for me. It’s very gentle, sulfate-free, and does not dry out your hair because the first ingredient is aloe, not water. A little bit goes a long way with this product and it lasts you forever! I use their conditioner as well.

3. Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield

This spray was a huge help when I was in D.C. After blow drying my and styling my hair, I spray enough of this to take away the frizz and smooth my hair. My fear with some sprays is when it leaves that super greasy residue. This does not leave your hair feeling greasy at all. It does its job by taking full control over the frizz!

4. Eufora Smooth’n Thermal Defense

I spray this into my hair to protect it from all the damage from my hot tools I use from day to day. I use a little extra especially in the summer since I tend to use a little more heat to try and style my hair. It’s made a huge difference in protecting my locks.

5. Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream


This is also a great product from Living Proof. I’ve used this for a long time as well and it does not leave your hair feeling heavy or greasy. It helps block the humidity and smoothes your hair. I apply a little bit to my hair when damp then style it as I usually do.

One thing I would also recommend, which I’ve done twice and it has helped tremendously, is doing a keratin treatment. It lasts up to 6 months and is something I’ve found especially helpful during the summer or for a tropical getaway. If you want any advice on this, feel free to email me!

I share this because I know how frustrating dealing with humidity can be sometimes and when it seems like there is no hope for a good hair day! If you have any tips or favorite products you use, I’d love any additional recommendations!
