April showers got you down? Nothing is worse that spending an hour or two creating the perfect hairstyle, only to have it ruined by an unexpected rainstorm or dewy spring morning.
Here are a few tips to help you protect your hairstyle as you brave the morning commute: 1. Use a More Emollient Product
Before rolling, twisting or blow-drying your hair, use a thick, emollient product like Jane Carter Nourish and Shine
A thick pomade or moisturizer will help seal the hair strands, preventing unwanted moisture from rain or humidity from entering the hair shaft and creating frizz.2. Work with Rain and Humidity
If you get caught in an unexpected rainstorm, quickly braid or twist your hair into medium size plaits or twists. Wear loose or cover with a cap.
When you get home or arrive at work, remove the twists or braids and enjoy loose waves or spirals. The moisture in the air will help set the curl pattern from the braids or twists. The waves will last all day long.3. Carry a Silk Scarf
A silk scarf is a great way to keep your hair protected during a rainstorm and still look chic. Tie hair back in a loose bun and cover tightly with a scarf. Tuck the ends of the scarf into your rain jacket and use an umbrella to shield the hair from direct rainfall.
Even though the scarf is light, it acts as an effective barrier against humidity.
