Rain is the enemy for many curly haired women, it ruins your curls turning them into a frizzy mess! Not sure what to do with your hair in inclement weather? Well, read some of our pro tips below to prevent having your hair frizz up when itâ%u20AC%u2122s raining outside!
Strong hair- Avoid sulfate-based shampoos since these traditional shampoos actually strip the natural moisture from your curls (The DevaCurl line that we carry is sulfate free). If your hair is dry and damaged, the cuticle will be lifting allowing humidity to enter each strand causing frizz. Try using a sulfate-free cleansing conditioner, it will help seal your hair cuticles and hydrate your curls but it will be lightweight enough to not leave any residue behind. Then apply a leave in conditioner from the mid-length of your hair to the ends to lock in the moisture.
Layer it up! – By using the right products for your curl type will give you maximum protection for your hair. If you have medium-texture curls, use a water-based mouse and if you have fine hair try an alcohol-based product! Use a small amount of these products on the ends of your hair to define and seal in your curls. Also before you leave the house make sure to spray your hair thoroughly with an anti-humidity product which will act like a layer of protection for your curls.
Quick Up-dos- With a quick up-do and a sturdy umbrella will be one of the best options for your hair on a rainy day. A classic French twist will protect your hair without undoing your natural curls. Also itâ%u20AC%u2122s less damaging on your curls if you use bobby pins instead of hair ties when putting your hair up. If humid weather tends to make curls fall rather than frizz, wear head scarf or a headband tuck to keep your curls collide as you commute. For a headband tuck, first wear a thick elastic headband on your head like a crown. Then, twist 2-3 inches of hair pieces up and over the headband tucking the ends under the elastic headband to form a roll across the back of your head. Still not sure what a headband tuck is?
