I’ll be real with you, dealing with flat hair in humidity is an ongoing battle. I’m constantly looking for new ways to fight the flatness. I even wrote a post last year about “how to stop your style from falling flat” and while that is still very useful, it’s more for days when your hair is very polished and properly styled. I want it to be nice and fluffy when I do a more tousled, effortless look too. So that’s what we’re here to talk about today.
Those of you with curly hair are probably wondering what the hell I’m talking about because your hair gets really big and fluffy in humidity. Fun fact, for those with straight, smooth textured hair it’s the opposite problem. The moist air can turn you into Morticia Addams real quick. Which is a fine look if you can rock it, but for me . . .it’s just not flattering. Maybe its the plump cheeks? I dunno.
So here are the steps I have been taking to help my hair stay fluffy throughout the day, even when it’s hot, sticky and humid out:
As an example, yesterday I did all of these things to my hair and then went out about my business. It was super hot and muggy out, and I even took the dog for a long walk near the river (so humidity central basically)
I don’t know why I look grumpy here, but it was the only decent picture of my hair that I got so it is what it is, I guess! Grump-face aside, even well into the steamy afternoon it held up pretty well. I think I’m on to something with this little hair care recipe. If you have any tricks to avoid flat hair in humidity, please share with the class! (In the comments obviously) I’m sure we could all use some extra tricks to add to the arsenal. 🙂
