Get Perfect Hair in Any Weather
Rain. Snow. Heat. Humidity. Here's how to look flawless, no matter what Mother Nature has in mind
Cut to today's world, where blizzards co-opt Halloween and daffodils bloom in February. And as we're sure you've noticed, the same wacky temperature swings that change nature's course also freak out your hair and make it a real challenge to style.
"Certain conditions affect a natural protein called keratin that gives hair its strength and shine," says Luke O'Connor, a Suave Professionals stylist based in Beverly Hills, Calif. "For instance, when heat damages hair, the shaft's cuticle gets ruffled and/or broken; this makes hair dull and lifeless. It also causes moisture loss, which leads to frizz and a lack of shine and body. Humidity also brings out frizz and makes hair look flat."
So while we may have once suggested a few styling tricks or products to store in your cabinet this season, we now suggest that you study up on all of them, or at least return to this guide after reading your weather report each day. We've included tips from pros and TotalBeauty.com readers alike, so you'll never battle a bad hair day again -- no matter what it looks like outside.
