Fight frizz with this rainy day routine for your curls.
If you have the pleasure of being curly, then you don’t need a weatherman to tell you when it’s going to rain. Your hair lets you know first with its change in shape and texture, and the halo of frizz that begins to form around your head. But stormy days don't have to rain on your gorgeous curls parade. Here, Lorraine Massey, author of "Curly Girl: The Handbook" answers your top rainy day questions so that you can have a good day hair no matter the weather.
Why the Frizz?
Curly hair is naturally drier than any other hair type. If you use sulfate-filled shampoos, heat style your strands or receive chemical treatments, your curls will dry out even further. If your hair isn’t hydrated enough then a humid, wet day is exactly what it needs.
“When hair is dehydrated, the natural inclination of the little strands on top of your head is to literally lift up and outward to quench their thirst from the moisture in the air,” explains Massey. “These lifted hair fibers create a poof of frizz.”
