Humidity: Nature’s Enemy of Your Hair

humidity

humidityWhen there is a lot of humidity in the air, it can cause water molecules and proteins within the hair to create hydrogen bonds that cause your hair to frizz and curl. Fortunately, you don’t have to simply deal with frizzy hair though. Use the tips provided below to decrease the frizz in your hair this summer when humid weather hits.

Use a Great Leave-In Conditioner

In order to limit the amount of frizz you have in your hair, keep it well hydrated. A great way to do this is to use a thick leave-in conditioner in your hair. Conditioners that contain coconut oil are a great option because the oil can help to strengthen and moisturize your hair.

Do Not Use Heat to Dry Your Hair

A huge mistake that people make during humid weather is to use heat to dry their hair. Using heat will dry out your hair even more and make it more brittle and porous. It’s best to allow your hair to dry naturally rather than using a heated tool to dry or style it.

Secure Your Hair to Avoid Frizz

It’s best to keep your hands out of your hair as much as you can to limit the frizz. Many people choose to wear their hair in a braid or a bun to keep it from becoming frizzy throughout the day. It’s best to comb your hair with a wide tooth comb while it is wet to limit breakage. Secure it while it is wet to keep it as tame as possible.

Keep Your Hair Well Trimmed

To limit the frizz, you need to make sure that you don’t have split ends in your hair. Damaged hair will be more prone to frizz than hair that is not badly damaged. Trimming your hair regularly will decrease the chances of having split ends in your hair.

Being able to tame your wild mane during humid weather doesn’t have to be difficult. Using the tips provided above on humid days can help you keep your hair looking great and limit the amount of damage that is caused to it when trying to manage the frizz.
