How to get rid of summer friz

August is around the corner, and that means some of summer's most humid days are yet to come. But you can still minimize frizzy hair, weaves, and wigs.

Three UT Arlington students models their curly hair.

Frizz is your real and your human hair's way of signaling that it needs moisture. The cuticle opens up to absorb the humidity -- or moisture. When frizzy, your hair is in double jeopardy because open cuticles makes it susceptible to breakage.

Here are some tips:

First, consult a skilled cosmetologist, licensed beautician, or trichologist to determine that your hair isn't damaged.

Next, prevent your natural hair and Afro Kinky Curly weaves and wigs from losing moisture by sealing in that moisture while washing it. Moisturizing shampoos and conditioners are excellent for moisturizing summer hair. Complete your regiment with a hot oil treatment, if necessary.

Are moisturizing products too heavy for your hair texture or for this time of year? Try a less-moisturizing products such as those labeled "for normal" or "for fine" hair. Complete your regiment with a hot oil treatment, if necessary.

Chad Paskins of Chad Paskins Hair Studio

Last, Chad Paskins of the Chad Paskins Hair Studios in Dallas, Tex. suggests that you not neglect the surfaces of your textured tresses. "...when you put product on your hair, you miss a lof of your hair, because those bonds are wrapped inside," he said. "So you're actually putting it on the outside of the curl... but... not the interior of the curl."

Paskins achieves this with LOC method, which stands for Leave-in conditioner, Oil and Cream.

He recommends not using shampoos with sulfate if dryness continues. Sulfate is a cleansing agent that can strip your hair of its natural oils. Alte rnate between using shampoos with sulfate and without it if washing your hair more often during the summer.

Profile: Hampton graduate creates skin care line from her research

I want to share a story about a new line of skin products that came to my attention recently. E~honey Skin Care, LLC launched in November 2016.

Founder Erika Clark returned to the lab to develop her natural and organic beauty line upon graduating Hampton University. She'd found herself dealing with acne following her senior year as a pre-med, biology major.

Initially, Clark had conducted lab research for botany -- the study of plant science -- during her sophomore year. In her junior year, she researched the molecular basis of Keloids -- overgrown scar tissue -- and the process of wound healing as a volunteer at Hampton's Skin of Color Research Institute.

As a new company, eHoneySkin currently appears to offer only a few products. One of them that caught my attention was the Goddess Glow Cleansing Scrub. The humectant may be too moisturizing for my skin during the current summer here in Pennsylvania. I do, however, want to let you know about this exfoliate after I try it around mid-autumn.

Exfoliators help to rid your skin of dead cells gently, and reveal its clarity underneath. Always perfect the look of your weave or wig with clear skin.
