We’re huge fans of embracing our kinks and curls, especially when the weather lends us no other choice (hi, frizz). But, now that summer — and the unrelenting humidity that comes with it — is almost gone, our strands finally stand a chance. Yep, silky, sleek tresses are officially back on our beauty radar again.
