  1. Thank you, as always, Gabriella! I recently tried the Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel and it is a STAR for keeping curls in place and moisturised!

      That’s so great to hear! I’ve tried both of those products and just didn’t see great results at all!

  2. I live in Bangkok but have very fine wavy hair. My hair expands to a poofy mess within 5 minutes of being outside. Even if I’ve used a gel and/or a mousse, somehow, the fine hair finds a way to frizz. The best thing I’ve found that works to combat the humidity is to use a very light final spritz of spray gel to “lock” it in place after I’m done styling my hair and then I let it air dry, making sure I don’t touch it at all while it dries.

      Thanks for sharing Petra. It doesn’t matter what styling product you use (gel, or mousse as you mentioned) if they contain high amounts of glycerin or other humectants it will cause your hair to lose definition and hold and to poof out. I hope that helps x

  3. Quick question: what are your thoughts on Moroccanoil hair products? Are they worth the hype?

    1. Gabriella says:

      I don’t use those products as they contain a lot of silicones and I don’t believe they are worth the hype (I used to use the oil years ago and never noticed that it did anything for my hair)

    This was great to read as Iv just moved to Cyprus from the Uk. I find myself washing my hair every day or other day as my scalp gets so sweaty in the 40 degree heat!! I feel like it’s wrong to wash my hair so much but they are great tips you’ve given I will have to try out
