For many curly-haired beauties out there you know that part of your morning routine involves checking in on the hair frizz weather forecast. If rain is predicted or there is a chance of high humidity you almost feel your curls start to frizz at the thought of it. Curls are thirsty for moisture and will literally “drink” it out of the air causing your hair to become extra frizzy. And once your hair is damp from the rain your styling is also going to collapse. It’s part of the ongoing battle to manage your curls in the rainy season and can leave one feeling in despair.
Why Do My Curls Frizz in the Rain?
According to the Smithsonian, “Humid air causes hydrogen bonds to form between water molecules and the proteins in your hair, triggering curls and frizz”
Curly hair is prone to dryness as one’s natural oils struggle to navigate through the bends in the strands of your hair. The best solution is to make sure that your luscious curls are always kept moisturized so they don’t have to pull that moisture in from the surrounding air. This is especially true if your hair is also dry and damaged. Curly hair in bad condition has lifted cuticles making it much easier for the outside humidity to enter your individual hair strands resulting in instant frizz. It is vital that you use products on your hair that banish dryness and nourish your cuticles back to health.
