About the Author

I started working at Adore Beauty in 2017 as a Marketing Assistant and I am now the Assistant Campaign Manager. I’ve been obsessed with beauty since I started stealing my mum’s lipsticks when I was 8 years old. These days I prioritise my skincare routine and prefer to go makeup free most of the time but I love to go all-out on the weekends.

Change the way you wash, treat and style your hair, with ColorWOW’s super sleek humidity-proof range. 

In this routine, Yasamin Bordbar, our Assistant Campaigns Manager, shows us how she uses the ColorWOW range to smooth her course, thick, naturally curly hair.

If you struggle with frizz, flyaways, or unruly hair you will be surprised at how much these products smooth things out, and keep your hair looking sleek and fresh for days.



What is frizz, and how can I keep my hair from frizzing in humidity?

Frizz is that messy tangle that stands apart from the rest of your hair. Technically, what we are seeing here is a raised cuticle layer, that is causing the hair to look dry and frizzy instead of smooth. 

Frizz can be caused by a number of things: damage, dehydration, genetics and hair type. Generally, those with curly hair experience frizz more, but that doesn’t mean frizz can’t be cured with the right hydrating hair products.

So, why does humidity create and exacerbate frizz? Essentially, what is happening is that your porous hair has less moisture in it than there is in the air, and this causes the moisture in the air to mess with the hydrogen bonds in your hair. 

It sounds complicated, but luckily Color WOW has an amazing range of hair care products that coat and seal in moisture, working effectively to humidity-proof your hair. 

In this routine, Yasamin will show you how to use these products in tandem to achieve silky smooth locks. 


Yasamin’s frizz-free Color WOW routine: 

Step 1: Pre-shampoo

Step 1: Pre-shampoo

The Color WOW Dream Filter Pre Shampoo Spray is a super unique product that removes the buildup of metals and minerals in your hair, which is what can cause it to discolour. Spray onto dry hair, distributing it evenly until saturated. You can use this product 1-3 times a week.

Step 2: Security shampoo

Step 2: Security shampoo

Follow up your pre-shampoo with the Color WOW Color Security Shampoo. This gentle, sulfate-free shampoo removes product build up and doesn’t leave any residue. Apply a coin sized amount to wet hair, lather and then rinse.

Step 3: Colour safe conditioner

Step 3: Colour safe conditioner

After using the Color WOW Color Security Shampoo, apply the Color WOW Color Security Conditioner Fine-Normal to the mid lengths and ends of your hair and then rinse through with warm water. This conditioner leaves your hair with a glossy finish, and won’t cause discolouration.

Step 4: Humidity hero

Step 4: Humidity hero

The Color WOW Dream Coat Supernatural Spray is another extremely unique product, which uses heat-activated polymers to humidity proof your hair and give it a glass like finish. Divide your towel dried hair into sections and dowse each section with the spray, working from root to tip.

Step 5: Smooth blow dry

Step 5: Smooth blow dry

Blow dry each section on a downwards angle with the  Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, maintaining tension with a brush. This treatment will last up to 3 washes!

Step 6: Quick comb through
