How Humid Weather Affects Hair

Without a doubt, humidity and hair have a frustrating dynamic. You might be wondering how humidity causes your hair to go wild and the answer is simple: water molecules. When the weather is humid, there is an excess amount of water molecules in the air. These molecules enter your hair and bind with proteins. This rearranges the bonds inside your hair fibers which results in your hair forgetting its shape and going wild. It is the same as running a wet comb through dried hair.

As a result, the humidity will cause your hair to become wavy or frizzy before re-drying into a new shape. This drying effect can cause your hair to become flat or even greasy. There is nothing more frustrating than working to have a perfect hair day, only to have the humidity to ruin it. Fortunately, Hair Mechanix has some helpful tips to keep your hair looking great in humid weather.
