there are proucts that fight humidity.. there's one from aveda (hang straight) its really good. i also use marc anthony straightening balm (simply straight) both of those are good. make sure your hair is conditioned REALLY well before you iron, and spritz a little hairspray too. one time, i used the paul mitchell stuff, and sprayed a little bit of hairspray on my hair (i had it straight, but then curled it the next day with a curling iron) i went on a field trip that day, and it was raining and my hair was fine! (i had my hood on of course)
