Rainy day hair blues

It's raining, it's pouring...and your hair is a mess. Rainy weather can put a damper on your style, but don't let it get you down. With these tips and tricks you can manage your frizzy hair even in the wettest weather.

Rainy day hair blues

Use moisturizing products

Even in the wettest weather, you have to make sure that your hair is hydrated with the right hair products. Use a moisturizing or hydrating shampoo without alcohol. With frizzy hair, you don't need to wash it every single day; skip a day between shampooings. However, you should condition your hair every day and use a deep conditioner once a week to help tame the frizzies.

Wear a messy updo

Instead of trying to always straighten your hair, embrace the frizziness with a messy updo. Work some mousse through your hair and then pull it into a high ponytail. Leave some strands loose to frame your face and at the base of your neck. Separate your ponytail into four sections, then bring each section down, folding it into the base of your ponytail. Secure with bobby pins, and spritz your hair with all-weather hairspray.

Get into hats

In wet weather, you can't do much to really control frizzy hair. So instead, cover it up with a fabulous hat. Funky fedoras, slouchy berets and cute cloches are on trend this season. When trying on hats, look in the mirror from all angles to find the best style for you. Headwraps and headbands can also pull your frizzy hair away from your face during rainy weather.
