If you struggle with unruly hair every time it’s humid outside, you definitely aren’t alone. It’s no secret humidity can be one of the most frustrating things when it comes to creating a nice hairstyle. You can literally spend hours on a hairstyle, only to walk outside and your hair is flat on your head within 10 minutes. Humidity will always be around to wreck a good hairstyle, but there are a few things you can do to deal with it!
Invest in Good Shampoo and Conditioner
The healthier your hair is, the better chance you will have of dealing with it during the humid weather. Using a quality sulfate free shampoo and conditioner with a lot of vitamins, minerals and oils will help tremendously. You don’t have to spend a lot of money, but you also don’t want to get the cheapest one available. You may also consider a leave in conditioner, depending on your hair type.
Help Your Curls Out
Sometimes the best quality hair care you can give yourself involves doing nothing at all. That is especially true when it comes to curly hair. Curls hold better when they aren’t freshly washed so don’t wash your hair in the morning or the night before. This won’t completely protect your hair from the negative effects of humidity, but it will definitely help keep your curls looking how you want them to.
Remove Moisture for Straight Hair
Straight hair and humid weather generally do not mix well. You will have a better chance of keeping your straight and shiny hair if you walk outside with a completely dry head on those hot and humid days. Of course, we understand sometimes it’s not possible to dry your hair completely, but at least spend a few extra minutes with your blow dryer. To help expedite the process, blow dry your hair in sections and run your fingers through it as you go.
Having a good hair day on a humid day is difficult for everyone. Sometimes Mother Nature wins, but at least there are some things we can try to make our hair look as good as possible.
