and if so what do you do to look good despite the frizziness?
i have fine hair which looks best blow dried straight. it only needs a hint of moisture in the air for it to transform into an unflattering frizzy, curly mess. i hate it. it has been about 95pc humidity where we are in the last couple of days and it's looking baaaad. had to resort to scraping it back with a headband hmm / bandana. anyone share my pain?

I invested in a pair of GHD straighteners for Christmas a couple of years ago and it's the best thing I've done!

No more frizz!

Mine does too- in the rain and with the humidity.

GHD you say ex-pat? Hmm, will give it a go, but then my hair will be straight- for some reason, in the rain or humidity it seems to develope a life of its own, nay a 'wave' of its own, and goes all tousled looking(but frizzy too) which I rather like, as opposed to the usual straight hippy greasy look I cannot help but wear otherwise.

GHDs are brilliant but unless you GHD your whole head of hair, fringe included, they won't save you from frizz...the worst is when you blow dry your hair and it looks lovely for about one minute, before the humidity gets to it. argghghghghghgh!

I have thick curly hair that morphs to Monica-in-Barbados proportions in humidity- I swear by a tube of Vitalointe conditioner in my handbag. Costs about two quid and you just add as necessary to your hair through the day when the frizz strikes!

Vitapointe, sorry. And I can't link either from my phone, but do google!
