Best Hair Tips in Humid Weather - Fight Frizz and Humidity

Shop online at
Fight frizzy hair at with our signature hair serum, leave in conditioner, and versatile hairspray.

With a few hair tips you can fight frizz and poofy hair in humid weather and reduce the effects of humidity in your beauty routine.

For many people, humidity is a friend to their hair or overall beauty ritual.  For most, it's absolutely dreadful.  The thick, heavy air, the dampness on the skin, and the gradual swelling of hair until it's out of control "big hair."  Do not pass go, do not collect $200, run straight away to your nearest beauty counter and lacquer down baby.  The tornado just touched down in Kansas.

So what's the big fuss?  Well it depends on your hair type and it largely depends on what you're used to.  If you're accustomed to humidity, many people throw their hands up and say "this is just what it is."  If not, you're probably ready to throw on a baseball cap and have a ponytail sort of day.  So let's start with a few thoughts.

Curly or wavy hair.  Many people with curly or wavy hair LOVE humid weather conditions and they rarely use a brush or comb.  They often enjoy the fullness and relaxed look and feel and for once, something is working for them and not against them.  With a little styling cream, a scrunching application and perhaps a light hold spray, they're off and ready in a flash.

Bridal Hair:  Best hair products and hair tips for your wedding day and hair style ideas from Billy Lowe and Gloss & Toss Hair Products. 

Hair styles and healthy hair for your wedding day have probably been on your mind for quite some time.  But for some reason many clients take their hair and makeup into their own hands and often  You've planned this day (or many of you have) since you were six years old.  Now this article isn't a magic wand trick nor a quick-fix for an overnight catastrophe.  Healthy hair means taking care of your hair (and scalp) on a daily basis, and setting up systems that work for you.  It also means getting in for those routine appointments leading up to your wedding and a few other essentials that we hope will prove to be helpful.  Consider this your Healthy Hair Countdown.

1.  Healthy Hair Countdown might look like this.  If you wanted to grow your hair out (depending on how much), you'll want to start that a year or more ahead of your wedding date.   By 3-6 months out you shouldn't be too far off course for what you're hoping to see on the actual day.  The biggest mistake people make is making major changes to their hair a day or two (or even a week or two) before their wedding day.  Many times brides

Best Hair Volume Tips | How to get more volume

Hair Volume Tips with Gloss & Toss Root Lift online at:

Also buy Gloss & Toss Root Lift on our Amazon store by visiting:

Hair Volume is KEY when it comes to a full voluminous look.  Whether fullness through the ends or fullness at the root area - clients often love a thicker, fuller "do" in many cases and they don't want hair to fall flat.  Gloss & Toss Root Lift is a great product to give volume to your hair style or blow-out and helps create a thicker, fuller look and feel that stays and doesn't feel sticky or fall flat.

Using a teasing brush or comb, take 1/4 or 1/2 inch sections and lift straight up keeping sections neat and clean.  Simply "push" hair downward toward the scalp (or base area) to create cushion to the hair.  No harsh back combing is necessary.  Your grandmother may have called this "ratting."  Here's our step-by step guide to get you to this point.

Gloss & Toss Root Lift dispenses QUICKLY so keep your hands moving.  When you apply work quickly in fast applications either front to back, or side to side, or in designated areas but stand-back - the finished results are just as dynamic as the dispensing results.

Shampoo & Condition with Gloss & Toss Daily Nourish Duo -
shampoo & conditioner set available online at This value set is only $35 and quite a savings as a duo.

Apply Gloss & Toss Prep to help detangle, add condition and shine, and to protect against thermal styling.   Coupled with the Shine product for that perfect blow-out and you're on your way.s

Mist Gloss & Toss Root Lift to scalp area in desired "LIFT" or "VOLUME" sections and blow-dry smooth.  See our other videos on how to get the perfect blow-out.

We love using these products here behind the scenes of Hollywood and hope you do as well.

Gloss & Toss Detangle Brush | Gentle Detangling Hair & Daily Styling

Gloss & Toss Detangle Brush: For detangling hair, daily brushing and general styling.   This amazing hair styling brush has so many wonderful features and I write firsthand to share the many benefits of this brush which are much more than just detangling hair.  I personally use this brush for daily brushing and styling, in-salon moisture treatments at the shampoo area, teasing and styling and so much more.   Check it out.........

  • 170 ultra-flexible bristles
  • Comfort round tips on bristle ends
  • Breathable cushion base
  • Comfort-grip handle
  • Stand-up design
  • Lightweight
and so much  more.  Detangling your hair has never been easier and much more comfortable than with the Detangle Brush from Gloss & Toss.  Many brushes break down over time and are heavy and uncomfortable when detangling hair or brushing.  This lightweight detangler was developed with you in mind and is not only an effective hair tool, it's quite pretty to look at we must say, and a must have for every beauty ritual.

Want some top detangle tips?  It goes without saying to start at the ends of  your hair first.  If you start at the scalp and try to brush through the matted or tangled pieces, you're just tightening the "knots" if you will and putting more pressure on the hair.  Try separating hair with fingers first into as many divided sections as you can without pulling or tugging hair apart.  Then brushing should be much easier as you work in smaller sections.  

Many salon professionals use this brush for in-salon moisture treatments as well as detangling and styling hair and clients love the easy-to-use features which makes gorgeous hair easier than ever.  

I personally suggest using our Prep spray which is a lightweight leave in conditioner for hair as well as our signature hair serum Shine whether you blow-dry your hair or leave it for a wash-and-wear sort of look.  

Available online at as well as our Amazon store by visiting

Best hair products | What are they and how to find them

Skip the supermarket - buy online at

The best hair products and how to find them? Now that's the question of the year.  I don't know about you but when I walk down an aisle of hair products that looks like the photo in this blog, my mind goes racing with tons of questions, and feelings of overwhelm, and confusion.  The colors, the messaging, the competing shelf space and the money each brand pays for that competing shelf space.  To the highest bidder goes the middle shelf within arm's reach.

The best hair products, I might say, are not always within arm's reach but they are often available online or by digging a little deeper to find the products you want and are looking for. whether through a local homemade brand, a boutique brand that caters to your  hair care needs, or one that provides great education about it's hair products and services.

Many people suffer from allergies and allergy sensitivities and buying a product from a major market or retailer means you may not get the product information or best hair product guidelines to style your hair, or treat your hair and scalp.

When you're feeling overwhelmed and nothing seems to be easy to understand in your hair care products, visit Gloss & Toss online or feel free to shoot us an email on the CONTACT page on the site.  We hope to explain things to you to help you understand your own hair care needs and how this product line may best help you with your daily hair styling including working with a great detangle brush, hair and scalp treatments, dry shampoo, flexible hairspray, and some of the best hair products on the market used by leading Hollywood hair gurus to style hair on sets.

Check it all out outline - and skip the trip at the supermarket.  Shop Gloss & Toss instead.

Purple Shampoo to tone brassiness | Shampoo for brassy hair

Gloss & Toss hair tips for toning hair and achieving the best hair color results.

What's the best shampoo and conditioner for toning brassy hair?  Purple shampoo - Yes.  

Violet based shampoos and conditioners are great for many color treatments, toning, and color smudges.  We know on the color wheel that violets and blues are opposite the warmer tones.  This means they help neutralize or minimize those warmer outcomes.  In hair services this is helpful to know because many times, highlights for example, can produce some warmth in the final result and toners, glazes, or shampoos with a color element to them are used to help "tone" the undesired effect.

Over time, blonde hair especially can attract dirt and congestion from the air causing brightened color to look dull.  This is where a violet base shampoo is super helpful.    I do, however, suggest a few things before just "slathering it on."

I suggest shampooing your hair with a daily shampoo specific to your hair type prior to using a violet or purple shampoo (or any other color).  Hair should be shampooed and cleansed from dirt, congestion or any build-up that may provide a barrier and ultimately prevent a purple (or other color) shampoo from doing it's job.

After you shampoo your hair, use your color shampoo (I use a golf ball amount but ask your salon professional).  Lather well and allow a minute or so for color to saturate/coat the hair and help minimize any undesired color results.     Follow up with a conditioner of the same color scheme for optimal results.

To finish and treat hair, apply Gloss & Toss Prep - Leave-in Conditioner for hair as well as Shine - our signature hair serum to help speed up blow-dry time, fight frizz, protect against environmental damage and so much more.
