The heat, humidity, and sea can wreak havoc on our hair when we’re on holiday and, realistically speaking, no one wants to have to fight the frizz battle when it’s time to unwind and look fabulous doing so. In this article, we look to Rossano Ferretti himself for answers on how we can attain frizz-free holiday hair.
Why is my hair frizzy?
Why oh why do we have to endure unruly hair? It seems like one of life’s hardships, right? However, the answer doesn’t lie in the ideology that the universe is out to get us. There is a scientific explanation.
According to Rossano, it all comes down to hydration.
“When it’s humid, and there are a lot of water molecules in the air, the excess moisture looks for areas where it can “fit”. Hair that’s dry entices moisture to enter through its shaft where it binds to the proteins. This process encourages hair to lift and look out of place, (instead of maintaining the smooth and sleek hairstyle that took you all morning to attain). The result – frizz!”
How to fix frizzy hair
The good news is that there is a saving grace for holiday hair. It starts with a sulfate-free anti-frizz shampoo and a nourishing conditioner.
Sulfates have a habit of stripping your hair of its natural moisturising and nourishing oils with each wash, leaving your locks more vulnerable to humidity. Sulfate-free de-frizz shampoos and conditioners are the best solution to keeping hair soft and hydrated to create healthy locks that will react better to other luxury anti-frizz hair products.
“On wash day, use a little more conditioner than you usually do, bringing it up from the tips to manage frizz”, says Ferretti.
Try our Grandioso Volumising Conditioner for hair that is lush and vibrant but without the frizz! Inspired by the plentiful, enriched landscapes of Umbria, the green heart of Italy, this silky anti-frizz conditioner nourishes and repairs hair using natural ingredients. With its fortifying properties, hair that is broken and prone to flyaways can quickly be restored to better health.
Anti-humidity Hair Products
When it comes to controlling frizz, prevention is always better than the cure.
Rossano advises that the drier your hair is, the more likely it is to absorb humidity from the surrounding atmosphere.
“It’s essential to keep your hair well-hydrated so that it does not succumb to the humidity in the air – this way, you can avoid frizz all day!”
Anti frizz treatment
To prevent your holiday hair from becoming ruined, make sure that you apply a hair mask to your locks at least once a week. This will prepare it for humid conditions and help you to maintain your fresh holiday “do”.
For hair that is smoother and more manageable, treat yourself to our award-winning moisturising and smoothing Intenso hair mask. Shea butter, almonds, and vegetable proteins work together to optimally hydrate, soften, and smoothen even the most difficult, thick hair.

Anti frizz hair spray
We would like to use this opportunity to introduce one of the newest additions to our collection of luxury hair care products – Dolce Satin Glow Booster.
This non-sticky leave-in anti-frizz spray uses bio-certified vegan ingredients, including chestnut and aloe vera, to combat frizz, hydrate hair, and seal in moisture. What’s more, is that it is perfect for all hair types and is effective after just one use.
How can I tame frizzy hair when I am on the go?
At Rossano Ferretti Parma we also have a selection of luxury haircare products available in smaller 50ml bottles. This makes maintaining fabulous hair so much easier while you are on the go!
“Make hair serum or oil your new best friend”.
To control frizzy hair on holiday, Rossano suggests that you pop a bottle of naturally enriched anti-frizz serum in your bag, or you can try a residue-free oil. His personal suggestions:
- Intenso Smoothing Serum calms thick, frizzy hair, to make it easier to manage and style.
- Brillante Oil is a non-rinse shining oil that’s perfect for on-the-go use. Natural hair care ingredients such as grape seed, sunflower and rosemary leaf work together to lock in moisture while adding a glossy sheen to hair.
What else can I do to avoid frizzy hair?
It’s not just humidity that plays havoc with hair. Heat damage from hair styling tools, the sun’s harsh UV rays, and chemical processes can break hair to cause flyaways that create frizz and hair that is hard to tame.
- Use the warm summer holidays to air-dry your hair, ditching hot styling tools as often as possible. This will keep your hair more hydrated and less prone to breakage.
- Invest in a professional detangling brush, one that will glide through your tangles with ease, without snagging at them.
- Protect your hair from sun damage by wearing a hat and covering your locks with a protective spray that creates a barrier between the moisture in your strands and harsh elements such as the sun and air pollution.
- Start your holiday off with a trim to remove split ends for an overall smoother look.
