The recent surge of storms in California have been unforgiving to many communities. We hope you and your family stay safe during these dangerous times. With rain being a common topic these days we will talk about how rain can damage your hair and skin. Let us get started.
If you have longer hair you have probably dealt with frizziness and dullness before. Rain can deplete your hair’s natural moisture and can cause frizzing, dryness, and dullness. Even if you oil and condition your hair on a regular basis, rain can still do some serious damage. Cover up with a hat, hood, or an umbrella to prevent this kind of damage.
First rains are also dangerous for your hair because initial rains bring down the pollutants from the air and they eventually weaken the shaft bonds making your hair dull and lifeless. This might sound gross but moisture in the air coupled with damp clothes after being exposed to the rain can cause your skin and scalp to remain wet for a long time. This is a recipe for various fungal skin and hair infections so do your best to stay dry!
Lastly, rain can damage your hair by making it weaker and by making it fall flat. Rainwater weakens the structure of your hair, making it harsher and thinner. If your hair gets wet in the rain, it is better to use a light, moderate shampoo to help strengthen your hair throughout the rainy season. Rain can also make your hair fall flat. If you have low porosity hair you might find your hair slicked to your head after getting caught in the rain. This is because low porosity hair is less likely to absorb moisture. The best way to combat hair that falls flat is to reset your roots with a volumizing boost.
Californians need the rain to get out of the ongoing drought but your hair does not! Cover up because rain can be very damaging.
