15 Anti-Humidity Hair Products You'll Rely On This Summer For Nearly Every Single Hair Type

Though I was mostly raised in the Canadian cold, frequent vacations to warmer climates and family trips to India brought a stark dose of heat, sweat, and humidity to my skin and hair.

While my skin mostly adjusted, my hair took a bit more time to catch up. My typical thirty-minute curling, straightening, or blow-dry routine would be undone within thirty seconds of being exposed to an Indian summer. No amount of hairspray was a match for the 120-degree heat — in fact, sometimes more product would only make it worse.

I settled into my natural frizz and came to complacently accept it when I was growing up. But, when I took my first job in Singapore, along with it came the necessity to look professional and put together at all times. My hair routine was competing against the ten-minute walk to the train, thirty-minute commute, and then another ten-minute walk to the office.

For the years I lived in Southeast Asia, I cycled through what must have been hundreds of products to curate the routine that was best for me, depending on the style I was going for or how my hair was behaving at the time. I had done so much research that I even curated routines for my friends — ones that some of them still thank me for today, years later.

Frizz is caused when hair gets over-heated and dry. We mindfully keep ourselves hydrated with fluids when we're out in the heat, and our hair needs the same attention. Since we don't need to be oiling our heads every twenty minutes while we're out, these products will keep your hair glossy, shiny, and frizz-free without the grease while you're out.

From gentle, vegan, cruelty-free products for silky straight locks to coarse, thick curls, these are the best sweat-proof, anti-humidity products for nearly every hair type:

Note: I use this on towel-dried hair, focusing on the hair closest to the scalp that's most susceptible to frizz on medium heat, then solidify the style with a shot of cold air. High heat can actually irritate the scalp, making it frizz more easily.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
