    Styling hair for indoors

    If you are going to be working indoors and only need to get out in the rain to travel from your door to the car and then from your car to your workplace, you can follow these steps:

    Use a heat protectant gel or spray on your hair so that they are not damaged by excessive heat.

    Now take your blow dryer and turn it up to dry your hair thoroughly, inside out. However, don’t hold your blow dryer too close to your scalp and keep a distance of about 10 inches between it and your hair.

    Once your hair dries up, apply an anti-frizz serum or spray (try John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray – get it here .

    Now you can either use a flat iron for straightening your hair or curl them. Whichever style you choose, you won’t have to worry about frizz, regardless of whether it is humid or is raining.

    If you take an umbrella with you and avoid getting your hair wet under the rain you’ll be fine throughout the day.
