Reasons why I they are more high maintenance than Cher Horowitz:
1.Wind: On my 20 minute walk to work today, Toronto’s winds blow them around. A quick sweep through them with my wallet-size comb in the elevator mirror fixes them quick before I get to my office on the seventh floor.
2. Yoga and Pilates: Slight perspiration from exercise can make my bangs a little wonky, and sometimes I just want them out of my face, but I can easily keep them back with a headband, or spritz in some dry shampoo to soak up any grease.
3. Humidity: The devil. This really is the worst force that I am constantly fighting against, especially on my treks into work. Any rain or humidity levels above 80% cause my bangs to lose their shit and get curly. It is the absolute worst. Not even a quick comb through will fix this problem.
To fight this battle, the best option would be to shield them from the air/rain the best that you can with a hat or hood, but no one really wants to wear a raincoat in 28 degrees. So, you need something that will fix them in place.
Kérastase’s new Laque Noire hair spray has a super strong hold that is totally brushable and fights humidity. Now, it’s not perfect when there is rain flying in your face, or on the dampest of days, but it really does a whole lot better than if you were without. I hate having a product-y feeling in my hair, but this hairspray can be generously sprayed on and you will still be able to run your comb through it and not get grossed out when you touch it. It’s almost even better when on the second day you already have some in your hair because it gives the bangs great texture and even more hold. This spray is also great for lightly misting the top of your head, where you might get the most flyaways–a little overspray gets over there when I’m misting my bangs and a quick juge with my fingers gives my freshly washed hair a bit of volume.
