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 sham
