My hair gets dry and frizzy in humid weather. Help! Monica, 31

Hot, sultry weather means out-of-control tresses. Here's  how you can keep your hair smooth and frizz-free. Avoid shampooing every day. Dont wash your hair too often, certainly not daily. Excessive shampooing will strip your hair of the natural oils that smoothen out frizz.

If your tresses feel oily, use a dry shampoo between washes. Deep condition with each wash. Every time you wash your hair, leave the conditioner on for at least five minutes. Run a wide tooth comb from base to tip making sure the conditioner spreads evenly. This extra conditioning coats the hair shaft, so it wont frizz up easily.

Also, try and indulge in a weekly hot-oil head massage. Skip towel drying. It roughs up the hair cuticles making them frizzy. Instead, use a super-absorbent towel made of micro-fibres to lightly drain the water out. Use a heat protecting spray.

Be it the weather or a blow dryer, both will damage your hair texture. Try and use a heat-protecting spray to protect hair and to avoid an unruly mane. Opt for an ionic dryer. It compresses the hair cuticle, keeping away frizz-inducing moisture.

Wrap frizzy strands around the curling iron to smoothen them. Tip: air-dry first to give your hair a bit of volume.

Apply a cuticle smoothing serum. The silicone in the serum tackles dryness or excessive moisture. Let your tresses dry or style them with a blow dryer. Use a spooley brush. Put a finishing spray on a spooley brush or a toothbrush to tame individual strands or a difficult fringe.

Pick alcohol-free products. Most mousses and hair sprays have a high alcohol content which can cause the cuticle to puff up. Look for an alcohol-free formula.
