When the weather throws a tantrum, a gorgeous head of hair may not be the easiest task! No matter the forecast, never leave home without all your tresses in place. Celebrity stylist Jet Rhys shares some great hair tips for every kind of climate.
Snow & Rain
Whether you live in New York City, Seattle or Aspen, temperamental weather can wreak havoc on your hair. Keep your beauty routine easy by shampooing and conditioning regularly and limit the use of styling products, like waxes and gels. If the rain or snow dampens your mane, hair can become sticky and flat. Instead, use a leave in conditioner that is cream-based, not oil-based. *Hot Tip: Keep a little pouch in your purse with a mini brush, hair elastics, and pins. If your hair gets wet, it will look chic if you pull it back.
Chilly & Cold
The crisp winter air in cities like Boston, Chicago, and Denver can make hair extra dry or brittle. Avoid over-shampooing, which can strip natural oils from hair, causing it to look flat and limp. Jet recommends skipping a day between shampoos. On the in-between days, simply rinse hair with water, massage scalp with conditioner and rinse out. *Hot Tip: In cold weather, spray your styling brush with static guard to avoid static from the dry air.
Warm & Sunny
The heat and humidity in cities like Miami and Honolulu translates to waves, curls, and sometimes frizz. “Don’t fight it. Work with it.” says Jet. *Hot Tip: Apply a light silicone product to freshly shampooed hair. For extra smoothness, dry hair thoroughly to combat frizz all day.
No matter where you reside, some of the simplest tricks make a world of difference to hair, many of which are inexpensive and fast.
