Rainy days are here, and the excessive moisture in the air can make your hair frizzy, flat and limp, and full of flyaways. The change in weather can even trigger dandruff. Don’t worry, though, because these easy rainy day hair care tips will help you maintain your mane—rain showers and thunderstorms notwithstanding.
Easy Rainy Day Hair Care Tips
1. Wash and care
Our hair care routine plays a big factor in its health and overall look. During the rainy season, our scalp attracts more dust and dirt. Apart from cleansing, we also need to make sure that our hair stays sleek and manageable. Using products rich in keratin can also help your hair stay healthy and frizz-free during rainy days.
Editor’s tip: Changes in temperature and humidity can trigger dandruff. Use CLEAR Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo to help prevent dandruff while keeping your hair smelling fresh and fragrant.
2. Use a light conditioner
The damp air can make your hair flat, especially if you have naturally fine hair. And if you use a conditioner that makes your hair sticky, it can weigh your hair down even more (and honestly, do you want your hair to stay greasy?). Switch to a light conditioner that gives your hair the moisture it needs sans the excess weight.
Editor’s tip: Switch to Cream Silk Hydra Fresh Fresh & Bouncy Light Conditioner. Its easy-rinse, water-based formula doesn’t make your hair sticky. It leaves fine hair moisturized and nourished without weighing it down.
3. Dry your hair
Make sure to completely dry your hair before heading out. It may be a challenge due to the weather, but it is worth the effort. Moist hair and scalp attract dirt, which can lead to serious scalp problems if left unchecked. Just keep your blow dryer at low heat or cool setting to avoid hair damage.
Editor’s tip: Keep your hair fresh and fragrant on rainy days by washing it with Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Shampoo. This product has five flower essences that make your hair smell great all day.
After learning how to brush your hair the right way, there are times when it’s better to put that brush down. A wide-tooth comb is your friend right now. A big factor for these rainy day hair care tips is the presence of water or moisture in the air, in which our hair is at its weakest state. Using a wide-tooth comb is less invasive and it won’t stress out your hair.
5. Use lightweight hairstyling products
Because of the humidity, it takes a longer time for hair to dry, especially when you spitz hairspray. It might leave a sticky residue on your hair and scalp, leading to a host of other hair woes, so minimize the use of these hairstyling products during the rainy season.
If you’re creating looks that require the use of hairspray, use fast-drying, lightweight ones like TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairsprays. These micro mist hairsprays give your hair an invisible hold that lasts all day. They come in different hold levels so you can pick the best one that suits your hairstyle. For smooth and sleek hairstyles, use TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Smooth Hold Hairspray.
6. Tame flyaways using hair rollers
If your hair seems to have a life of its own no thanks to the moisture in the air, you can use hair rollers to keep your hair in good shape. Wrap the tips of your hair inwards around hair rollers to get rid of flyaways. The hair rollers can even add volume and bounce to flat hair.
7. Treat your hair with a straightening mask
Frizz and flyaways pop up when the air is humid, include weekly hair mask treatment in your rainy day hair care routine. It will definitely help your hair stay smooth and frizz-free during the rainy season. Use a keratin mask to effectively tame these pesky tutsang and tikwas.
Editor’s tip: Apply Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Straight Treatment Crème to your hair at least once a week. This treatment mask has three benefits of keratin all in one product: tames frizz, revives damage, and restores moisture to dry hair.
Rainy days can be great hair days with proper care. Don’t let the gloomy weather faze your style. Just follow these simple rainy day hair care tips, and you’ll have a great hair day no matter the weather.
