While winter and summer haircare is usually quite straightforward, what about that awkward in-between phase that takes place as we slowly transition from summer into autumn? How do you deal with intense humidity and frizz one day and windy, chilly conditions and dry hair the next? We’ve got the answers you’ve been searching for.




Ultimately, whether you’re dealing with high humidity or dryness, the answer to maintaining your mane remains the same. It lies in how often you moisturise it – and with what. Regular moisturisation can tame frizz and help to combat dryness. We can’t get enough of the silky Dark and Lovely Olive Oil - Oil Moisturiser. The 4-step Mizani Thermasmooth Thermal Straightening System is another great option that will give you a relaxed, smooth look without the need for any chemical treatment.

Get a hot oil treatment


If your hair is prone to frizz, a hot oil treatment could be a great option to consider. It’s perfect for when humidity is high, just before the dry season takes over.


Leave-in conditioner


A leave-in conditioner, like lightweight Mizani 25 Miracle Milk, is the way to go when dry air starts to take a toll on your locks. It will help to alleviate split ends and can also reduce frizz by weighing the hair down somewhat if the weather changes abruptly (which it undoubtedly will).

Ultimately, to make it through the in-between season, the key is to dedicate more time to your haircare routine and to do your research before investing in the right haircare products. Here’s to a good hair day, winter, summer and every day in-between.
