Like skin, changes in weather impact our hair. Warmer months are often accompanied by increased humidity, which brings rise to several hair issues in the summer. Frizz tops the list especially for those with wavy to curly locks. It can easily ruin a good hair style, cut or color, leaving one’s crowning glory to look dry and unruly. Humidity can also cause hair to go flat as a result of moisture building up in the hair shaft.
The Cure For Frizzy Hair
T0112’s Anti Humectant Spray locks out humidity to prevent frizz and flyaways. Tamanu Oil gently protects strands and works well even with color or keratin treated hair. An infusion of cedar wood and amber envelops sense in a halo of freshness. Use the Anti Humectant Spray as the last step in your hair regimen.

Protect Hair from the Sun Damage and Stressors
Summer is all about frolicking, lounging and soaking up the sun. And while this has always been regarded as the ideal during warmer months, sun exposure can wreak havoc on one’s crowning glory. Hats and headscarves are always a good idea. They immediately elevate the summer repertoire and protect face and hair from harmful UV rays.

Win The Battle Against Hair Loss
Summer hair loss is very real, and unlike the beautiful sandy scapes we dream about during this time of year, it is anything but pretty. There are many reasons why we experience hair fall around this time of the year. Experts have postulated that bodies have a natural instinct to induce hair shed as means for stripping away insulation. Other studies have shown that sun exposure influences the rate by which our hair follicles behave. Hormones have also played a key role in hair health. Just are there countless causes for hair loss during summer, there are many ways to support healthy during this time of the year.
