It’s the time of year for sun-kissed skin and a weekend routine of an ocean dip followed by an açai bowl. And although we can’t seem to get enough of those summer days, there’s one beauty woe that we just can’t avoid… the age-old battle of humidity vs hair.

Rabih Melhem, Artistic Director at Oscar Oscar Highpoint shares his top stylist tips on how to combat frizzy hair during the wet season:

“The most obvious tip would be to book in for a Bhave Keratin Smoothing Treatment at any one of our salons. The treatment works absolute wonders and it’s for all hair types! It will certainly cut down your styling time, and will allow you to be able to recreate a smooth, salon finish at home.”Link to blog

“My second tip is to always ensure that you smooth and stretch out your hair from the root whilst you blow dry, as that’s where we see that ring of frizz come from. Blow dry your hair down rather than upwards to create a smoother result.”


“Lastly, if your hair is prone to a lot of frizz, follow your blow dry with a GHD iron for a super sleek finish.”

“Again, I need to bring up the Bhave Keratin Smoothing Treatment. You simply can’t go wrong. Whether you want to de-frizz your locks, reduce the weight of your hair, or achieve a sleek and straight style, the Bhave Keratin Smoothing Treatment is your answer. Otherwise, I’d recommend the Smooth Infusion range by Aveda. For best results, I’d use the Style Prep, combined with the Naturally Straight as together, they can defend against humidity for up to 12 hours. Goodbye frizz!”
