Hair damage is a serious issue that many women face. Humidity can wreak havoc on your hair, causing it to become dry and brittle. The good news is there are some easy ways to avoid humidity-related hair damage.
One of the best things you can do for your hair when dealing with high humidity levels is to invest in a professional humidifier or dehumidifier, depending on whether you need greater moisture or less moisture in the air. You may also want to try using a leave-in conditioner regularly, which will help keep your locks hydrated during these harsh conditions. Another option would be to use products that contain argan oil, an ingredient shown by research studies, to protect against heat styling damages caused by excessive exposure.
Humidity-proof your hair: tips from the experts
The hot, humid summer weather is a major enemy of your hair. Not only can it make you feel uncomfortable, but it can also lead to frizzy, dry, and damaged locks if you’re not careful. Here are a few tips for avoiding humidity-related hair damage:
- Keep your hair well-hydrated by using a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
- Avoid using heavy products on your hair, such as oil or serum.
- Try to keep your hair out of the sun as much as possible, and use a UV-protectant spray if you have to be in direct sunlight.
- Use a humidifier in your home during the summer, especially if you have a dry heat.
- Invest in a good leave-in conditioner to use after showers. This will help fight the effects of humidity while also locking in moisture. Avoid using leave-in products with heavy silicones, opting for silicone-free ones instead.
How do I make my hair not react to humidity?
Women, we know you love the unpredictability of the weather. You like to wear your hair down and natural on a nice summer day, but then it rains, and frizz happens. How do you make your hair not react to humidity?
The key is understanding that there are different types of curls! This means that one product may work for one curl type while another will be perfect for a different type. For example, suppose you have tight curly coils (Type 2) and use protein products (products designed specifically for Type 3 curls). In that case, it will make your curls less defined and more frizzy because they need hydration instead of protein. What should you do? Try switching out these products with ones made just for your Type.
I’m sure many of you have experienced the horror of your hair acting up when it’s humid outside. It becomes frizzy, unmanageable, and sticks to everything. This is because humidity can make your hair products react differently than they would in dry weather. To avoid this problem, you can do a few things at home. First off, use a product that contains silicones that seal in moisture and help protect against humidity-induced frizziness. You also want to apply it give an hour before going outside so that the silicone has time to work its magic on your hair. If you’re already out in the heat and need some quick relief for your locks, try brushing them with oil or putting on a hat.
