Simply select your hair type, which can be identified via the Hairtype Quiz or this guide and then put in your zip code. Frizz Forecast is easily accessible by clicking the Explore tab at the top of NaturallyCurly. This tool takes into account dew points, humidity and temperature and the best way to care for your hair no matter what your weather conditions - here's why they impact you.

What are dew points?

A dew point is the temperature at which a vapor, such as water, begins to condense, and according to chemist Tonya McKay, the higher the dew point, the higher the moisture is in the hair and vice versa.

What is humidity?

Humidity is simply the amount of water vapor in the air. We all know how the humidity affects our hair and our CurlChemist explains what low and high humidity can do to the look and texture of our curls.

"Hair exposed to very dry air without protection can lose its moisture, develop an unpleasant texture and can become unruly, flyaway, and frizzy... Conversely, unprotected exposure to excessive moisture and humidity can swell the hair cortex, causing the cuticle scales on the exterior of the hair shaft to become ruffled and giving hair a coarse, unpleasant texture."

What is temperature?

Most of us are familiar with the high and low temperatures in our local areas, but this value impacts the humidity, dew point, and the way your hair is going to look on any given day. The Frizz Forecast combines all of these elements for your zip code and gives advice on the best way to treat your hair type in those conditions.

What does the Frizz Forecast do?

Frizz Forecast lists the temperature, humidity percentage, and dew points before letting you know how they will affect your hair. It also tells you what styles will be best and worst for that day along with recommended products to use. I have 4A/3C coils and on the days with high levels of moisture make for excellent days to just rock my wash and go.

Another great part of the Frizz Forecast is what to expect if going on a trip away from home. If you don’t access this helpful tool, you can be opening yourself up for bad hair days far from home. Reviewing the Frizz Forecast before taking a trip help you to pack the products you will need to ensure you are in control of your hair when away. Make sure to check it daily to stay completely in the know.

What’s listed next are recommended products. It takes into account all the kinds of products most curlies love, so you have options on what will help in your quest for frizz-free curls for the day. It even shares what the weather will be like for up to five day or the weekend. Knowing what to expect from your hair for the upcoming week sounds too go to be true, but it is now a reality you need to be taking advantage of.

With the compilation of all three factors being configured into an easy application, Frizz Forecast creates a quick fix for knowing what to expect from your hair on any given day. I now understand how the temperature, dew point, and humidity affect my hair. What I don’t have time for is to figure it that by myself out every day, so I can decide what products to use or styles to wear. Let Frizz Forecast do all the work.
