Rainy Weather Hair Hacks
The soft pitter-patter of rain might be music to our ears, but for our hair, it often spells frizz, flatness, and a general state of unruliness. However, with a few clever tricks up your sleeve, you can ensure your tresses remain as stunning as ever, even as the heavens open. Here are some rainy weather hair hacks to keep your locks in top form.
One of the best ways to keep your hair manageable on wet days is to braid it. Not only do braids keep hair in place, but they also reduce exposure to humidity, preventing frizz. Plus, when the rain stops and you undo them, you’re left with gorgeous, wavy locks.
2. The Magic of Dry Shampoo
Rainy weather often means a greasy scalp, as the humidity can cause your scalp to produce more oil. Having a good dry shampoo in your arsenal can quickly absorb excess oil, giving your hair a fresh look without a wash.
3. Anti-Frizz Serums are Your Best Friends
Invest in a quality anti-frizz serum. Applying a small amount to your hair, especially the ends, can seal the cuticle and prevent moisture from wreaking havoc. We recommend the FUL Hyaluronic Acid Hair Serum for maximum hydration and to tame any unwanted flyaways and frizz.
4. Stay Natural
Rainy days might not be the best time to straighten or curl your hair, as the moisture can undo your hard work in no time. Instead, embrace your natural hair texture. If you have curly hair, use a curl-defining cream. For straight hair, a light hair oil can keep it sleek and shiny.
5. Protective Hairstyles
Buns, top knots, and low ponytails can be lifesavers during wet weather. They not only keep your hair in check but also minimise its exposure to the rain, ensuring it remains neat and tidy.
6. Use the Right Accessories
Headbands, scarves, and hats can be both stylish and functional. They protect your hair from direct exposure to rain and also add a touch of flair to your rainy-day outfit.
7. Always Carry an Umbrella
It might sound obvious, but always having a compact umbrella in your bag is one of the best preventive measures. It protects your hair and allows you to step out with confidence, come rain or shine.
8. Limit Heat Styling
The added moisture in the air during rainy weather can make hair more susceptible to damage. Limit the use of hot tools to prevent unnecessary strain on your strands.
9. Keep It Conditioned
Conditioning is crucial. Well-moisturised hair is less prone to frizz and absorbs less external moisture. A leave-in conditioner or hair mask, like FUL’s Intense Moisture Hair Mask, can provide an extra layer of protection against the dampness.
10. Comb, Don’t Brush
Wet hair is more prone to breakage. If you’re caught in the rain, opt for a wide-toothed comb to detangle your hair gently. It reduces breakage and prevents static.
Rainy days might be challenging for haircare, but with these hacks, they don’t have to spell disaster for your locks. By prepping your hair and using the right products and styles, you can enjoy the romance of the rain while keeping your hair game strong. So, the next time those clouds gather, you’ll be ready!
