SUMMER showers are one of the first signs that warm weather is here to stay. And getting caught in the rain, shouldn’t be a problem, but humidity and frizz (and just good ol’ poof) are out to get you! Bad hair days make it difficult to appreciate the good weather.
Why Is Humidity Ruining My Hair?
UNDERSTANDING humidity will help you learn how to tame your mane and walk out the door on a humid day without fear, so first, a bit of science. When the air is humid, high levels of hydrogen are present (remember, water is two parts hydrogen, one part oxygen). Because hair is porous the outer layer absorbs moisture when there is humidity in the air, causing hair to become curly, swell and frizz. Is it even possible to have good hair under these circumstances? Not to worry, we’ve got you covered with 10 tips and 10 amazing frizz fighters to keep your style’s shape until the storm passes.
