As if the hot air
from our hairdryers and the scorch of straightening irons weren’t enough, the summer heat adds an extra sizzle that will put almost any head of hair over the edge. Then there’s the salt water and chlorine. No wonder our hair feels so unruly by the end of the year. But according to Violet Sainsbury, creative design team educator at Moroccanoil, hair-raising frizz is as much a problem in dry winter weather as it is during a humid summer. As the hair shaft becomes dehydrated, it develops an uneven texture, rendering it just as unmanageable as the swelling brought about by moist air.
To remedy this, the celebrity hair expert who coined the phrase “bad hair day,” Philip Kingsley, recommends using a weatherproof hairspray to ward off atmospheric influences. And integrating intense formulas such as Rahua Elixir and Brazilian Blowout into your daily routine can help tame an unmanageable tangle.
While not life-threatening (unless you’re the victim of bad-hair-day-induced rage), external factors will further aggravate individual hair concerns. Taking a specialised approach to your haircare routine can be one step towards restoring that flickable finish.
