We all have those days when the humidity is just really putting a damper on our hair. You searched and searched and couldn’t find that perfect product that would give you the results you were looking for. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but, honey, dear, my sister, my brother, fellow member in this afro frenzy baby it’s not out there. Your hair will be affected by the weather. You will wake up some days with perfect curls everywhere but one small section and it will kill you. However, I have some news Usually when we think that our hair just looks the worse it could ever be someone as always will come up to you and pay you a compliment. Embrace your hair accept it for what it is. Your hair is natural and it will do as it very well pleases. Let your hair have its own personality. The shape texture and length of your hair gives it its personality as does the frizz. Now in order to avoid complete disaster try to style your hair in styles that are closer to your hair texture to combat humidity.
On days when you know that it’s going to rain style your hair in a braid out, or twist out or a wash and go bandtu knots may suffice as well. Making sure that your hair is completely dry when you unbraid or twist your hair is imperative. It may sound silly but if your hair is not completely dry your style will not last long in the humidity. Don’t blow out your hair unless you are prepared for the shrinkage because there will be shrinkage. Another key tip is to relax. Accept the fact that you are beautiful with or without a little frizz. I have come to love my hair when it swells a bit which I’m sure you will learn to as well. There are some hair care products that may also help like hair yogurt from organix or Ms. Jessie’s or even dark and lovely’s hair collection for elongated curls. Just so you all know I suffer from the humidity as well and the above picture is yours truely. Just the other day I didn’t know that it was going to rain and I forgot an umbrella. I had my hair in a braid out with no products. Yikes right no! At first I was freaking out , but then out of nowhere I liked it, because it was still me, and it was still my hair just bigger. Check out different products figure out what works for you. Remember be curly be happy be you and you will never fail.
