If you live someplace with high humidity, these next six weeks might be trying. The extra moisture in the air can throw a wrench in your typical styling routines. Today we’re diving into the science of how humidity affects your hair and giving you strategies to handle the humidity with style.
When the weather is humid, there’s more hydrogen in the air. The hydrogen causes your hair strands to make more bonds. If you have straight hair, you’ll likely notice a curl in you hair. If your hair is curly, you may notice additional frizz. Now that you understand how humidity impacts your hair, let’s talk about how you can fight back.
The simplest way to handle the humidity is to rock your natural texture. There are plenty of occasions for you to straighten your hair or add in extra curls, but the most humid days of summer are not that time. If you’ve got curls, the Crowned Wash + Go Styling Gel will be your best friend. Get your hair wet, detangle, and then scrunch the gel into your tresses.
The humidity is already going to create a lot of frizziness, so you want to avoid adding any extra frizz into the mix. Dry your hair with a microfiber towel or an old t-shirts. Switch out your cotton pillowcases for silk or satin. Little switches will go a long way.
Maybe you don’t want to deal with the humidity. That’s totally fine. Get some cute braids or a sew-in, and go enjoy your summer. Protective styles make it easy to combat humidity without you having to put in a lot of extra work. Just make sure to use the Shedavi Hair + Scalp Growth Elixir to promote hair growth and scalp health.
Moisturizing your hair regularly does a world of good, but it may come as a surprise that moisturizing helps keep humidity’s harmful effects at bay. Moisturized hair combats the moisture in the air because dry hair tends to be frizzier. When the humidity is high, up your deep conditioning game. Consider alternating between Shedavi’s Protein Masque and Leave In Conditioner to keep yourself looking cool in the heat.
