5 Ways to Salvage Your Hair After Getting Caught In The Rain

The typhoon season may have come earlier this year, but that doesn’t mean you should let the wet season get you down. While you could spend a good amount of time preparing your hair in the morning, it just can get easily dampened by the heavy downpours at the end of the day.

While rainwater is considered the purest and safest form of soft water, the first rains can actually have some harmful effects on your hair too as it washes away the harmful impurities and chemical pollutants in the atmosphere.

As much as we want to avoid rain, sometimes getting drenched in it is inevitable. So here are some tips to help salvage your style this season: 


1. Keep it simple & stylish

Try easy hairstyles that keep your hair intact – like a simple bun or ponytail that will make it hard for anyone to know that the rain almost got the best of you.  Spruce up your look by accentuating with a fancy hair tie, ribbon, even a slim braid for a unique touch.

2. Fix the frizz
Even if you have an umbrella with you, the rain and wind can still stress out your tresses. A quick solution would be to apply a serum as soon as you get back indoors to control frizz. You can try L’Oreal’s Absolute Repair Serum to instantly give moisture to damaged hair or Davines’ This Is an Invisible Serum to have a light, natural look with an anti-frizz effect.

3. Cleanse the rain away
If you really couldn’t help being rained on and getting your hair all tangled in bad weather, a good cleansing should keep your hair healthy. Wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo to remove toxins. Bed Head by TIGI has a Recharge Shampoo that removes pollutants to revive shine and also has a version for men with its Wise Up shampoo that uses charcoal and caffeine to refresh the scalp.

3. Condition and care

The rainy season will be here for a while, whether we like it or not. That’s why it’s important you have a regular conditioning routine to protect your hair from frizzing. If you have hair that has undergone a rebonding or keratin treatment, it’s even more important to use the right products to counteract damage from the rain. Widely for its Smoothing Therapy, the Keratin Complex Care Conditioner is most used to fight frizz while enhancing softness and smoothness. For rebellious or straightened hair, another popular choice is L’Oreal Serie Expert’s Liss Unlimited Conditioner that can block out humidity and provide up to 4 days of anti-frizz effect.

4. Stay dry, dry, dry 

The humidity that comes with the typhoon season can speed up the breeding of bacteria in the hair – and we definitely wouldn’t want that! Not only is it cringe-worthy, it can also result to serious scalp infections. It is, therefore, important to dry your hair completely! Obvious as it may be, towel drying your hair gently or letting it dry naturally will help you keep a healthy scalp environment. If time is not on your side, use a quicker solution like the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer that can do the job in less than 5 minutes while minimizing hair damage making it a super-worthy buy especially for busy women.
