As the weather gets warmer, we all experience the unfortunate phenomenon caused by humidity: Frizzy hair. From flyaways to puffiness, frizzy hair can sometimes feel like it’s out of your control.
Why does our hair frizz? Frizziness is caused by dry, porous hair sucking up moisture from the humid air which then causes it to swell and kink. What’s the best way to prevent your hair from acting like a sponge? These humidity hacks are a good start:
Use a Satin Pillowcase
Care for your hair while you sleep! The friction from cotton pillowcases can cause hair damage and breakage, as cotton absorbs your hair’s natural oils. This spring, swap out those old pillowcases for some luxurious silk ones! Silk retains the moisture that cotton soaks up, leaving your hair silky smooth. Bonus, this material reduces friction and hair breakage.
Finish Your Shower With a Blast of Cold Water
It doesn’t sound too appealing, but turning up the cold at the end of your shower can help prevent frizz. The same way it closes your pores, cold water helps close the cuticles of your strands. This will also help to retain your hair’s natural moisture.
Don’t Brush Your Curls
Unfortunately, curly hair breaks easily. Instead of using a regular hairbrush, use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to detangle and prevent damage to your mane. This will also help to preserve the natural look of your curls!
