My hair usually doesn’t bother me that much, but it gets worse on rainy days! Do you have this kind of problem?
Why Spread, Why Worsen? Frizzy hair on rainy days
People say, “Rainy days make my frizzy hair spread,” but why is this the case in the first place?
When it rains, even if you are indoors, the amount of moisture in your hair increases. This is because the air itself becomes filled with moisture. So the hair “receives” moisture from that humidity. This is thought to make the hair more puffy than usual.
I can’t let a rainy day get the best of me! How to hold down frizzy hair?
As mentioned above, hair spreads greatly when it contains moisture. Conversely, if the hair is in a low moisture state, it will not spread as much.
Therefore, on rainy days, you need to dry your hair more thoroughly than usual. By allowing the hair to dry completely while stretching it properly, spreading can be significantly reduced.
Another solution is to use styling products like waxes and sprays. These can help to hold the hair itself in place, but they can also be used to code the hair and thus hold down the amount of moisture that can enter the hair.
In other words, styling products can protect hair from humidity from two directions.
I could use a comb! Keep your style in place by combing often.
Let me introduce you to another primitive, yet highly recommended method. That is to use a comb.
While measures using hair dryers and styling products are very effective and convenient, it is quite difficult to take them to work or school as a practical matter. In this respect, a comb can be simply slipped into a bag and carried around.
Using this comb, you can frequently trim your hair.
When using this method, it is best not to choose a styling product that “hardens” your hair. This is because it will be difficult to comb through, and as a result, it will be more difficult to fix.
Frizzy hair that “runs wild” on rainy days can be quite a problem. But it can be minimized with the right measures.
