Winter isn't here just yet, but the seasonal storms that can wreak havoc on your hair seem to have hit early. Between the wind, rain, thunder and lightening, stormy weather is definitely more fun to look at than it is to go out in. But if you do need to leave the house, there are some easy ways to keep you from winding up with a bird's nest on top of your head.
Use plenty of hairspray. Hairspray coats your hair and holds it in place, so excess moisture won't penetrate the cuticles causing your hair to fall flat.
Use dehumidifying spray. An anti-frizz spray is a real help for people who are constantly battling poofy hair, as it acts a barrier between your hair and the surrounding moisture in the air.
Braid it. Braiding is one of the easiest ways to keep frizzy hair under control. Plus, it's a look that holds better in rainy wind than most other types of styles.
Keep reading . . . Wear a hat or rain bonnet. An umbrella may keep you reasonably dry, but to keep your hair truly out of the wet, an old-fashioned plastic rain bonnet is the way to go. Just think of it as retro chic!
Don't dry your hair all the way, and use a gel. Keeping your hair damp and then coating it in a managing product keeps water molecules from puffing up your hair the minute you walk outside. If you have fine, straight hair, though, this might not work as well for you, since flatness is already an issue.
