Punch humidity in the face

*Cue Jaws music*  

It’s coming. The thing we all dread most. HUMIDITY. It seriously transforms us all into creatures of the night! I want you to be prepared and be a victim no more.

What is humidity?

Cultural Dictionary

humidity (relative and absolute)

The amount of water vapor in the air. Humidity is measured in two ways: (1) Absolute humidity is the percentage of water vapor actually present in the air. (2) Relative humidity is the absolute humidity divided by the amount of water that could be present in the air. Relative humidity indicates the degree of comfort or discomfort one feels from the humidity, because it indicates the amount of perspiration that can evaporate from the skin.

What does it do to our hair?

jazmine's hair vs humidity

When the weather is humid, moisture comes into direct contact with hair’s natural hydrogen bonds. Obviously this doesn’t mean your hair will feel wet, its such a minuscule amount that you can’t feel it. When this happens, the moisture shifts and causes the hydrogen bonds to relax. So essentially, if you have any wave or curl in your hair naturally, even if you’ve straightened it, in humid weather the wave/curl will be amplified; the same goes for those with straight hair – if you’ve curled your hair with rollers or a curling iron and get stuck in humid weather, your hair will have the opposite effect and end up straight. Each person’s hair will have a different reaction to humidity. The general rule of thumb is that if you have straight hair, it will end up limp. Curly hair – it will end up frizzy and thick/coarse will end up ‘frazzled’.

How can we beat this beast!?

I believe your Shampoo and Conditioner is the foundation of the health of your hair as well as the platform for styling…

I use Davines Melu. It is great for anyone who is trying to grow their hair out or someone with damaged tresses. It contains spinach extract which adds incredible shine.

I believe you should ALWAYS protect yourself…

Wet or dry Melu shield protects my hair up to 428 degrees! MELU / Shield is enriched with Cherry Oil which provides moisturization and nourishment, Keratin which strengthens hair’s structure, and Vitamin E which provides anti-oxidant, repairing action.

I love Invisible styling cream! Rice and Soy Proteins condition and restructure hair for volume and brilliance while Avocado Oil and Rice Bran Oils deeply nourish, moisturize and soften.
