Summertime is great- from early morning prom runs to sundowners on a Friday and spending the weekend at the beach. But there is a downside to the hot summer days- humidity. Humdity can take your salon blow-out to a frizzy mess in seconds — a là that episode of Friends where Monica’s usually sleek hair falls victim to humidity. If only she made use of these seven hair products that tame flyaways, keep moisture in your hair and makes hair virtually humidity-proof.
Hair and humidity
Before we get into the products, let’s chat about why hair poofs up when it’s humid outside. Human hair loves moisture, so when we step outside on a humid day, your hair can’t help but soak up the moisture in the air. The water molecules in the air mess with your hair’s hydrogens bonds, making your hair go back to its natural state. Now, the first step to preventing humidity poofy hair is to ensure that your hair is healthy. Dry and damaged hair attracts more moisture which means more frizz. You want to make sure that you’re not drying your hair with a towel (this damages the hair cuticle), that you’re using heat protectant sprays, regularly deep conditioning and using a natural bristled brush.
