Hair Tips | Natural Hair And The Heat: What the Heck, Humidity?!

It's so freakin' humid outside!!!!

Natural Hair Vs Humidity
For the past few weeks, the weather in Indy has been really nice, but at the same time sticky and muggy. I mean the weather is just really moist!

When my natural was out, my morning style would go from a twist out to an afro by early afternoon because of the high humidity here. What makes it worse, my hair would also feel so dry to the touch as well, just because that is just the nature of my hair.

If you are going through what I'm going through right now, I suggest trying these tips and things to remember to combat humidity.
  1. Remember that humidity means MOISTURE from the atmosphere...check
  2. Get a grip and accept that fact that my hair will get frizzy no matter what...check
  3. DO NOT use humectants that will draw extra moisture to your hair (honey, glycerin, etc.)...check
  4. Use a cream or oil after my leave in...or be sorry...check
  5. Use Aloe Vera Juice to close my hair cuticles...check
  6. Put my hair in a flat twist style for the week and do outs during the weekends...check and check
  7. If all else fails, do get a long term style (box braids, Senegalese twists, crochet braids, etc.)
I really don't have an issue with the frizz; but when my hair gets all wacky and weird, that's when I post a selfie in my Hair Diary with my #stale face -_- just to remember that humidity is real and try something else in my arsenal to combat the humidity.

Other than that, I'll just enjoy the weather! My hair will not kill me!!

Natural hair says: if you cannot combat humidity, try a cute protective style for the week. Do your outs over the weekend and enjoy your kinks and frizz then!

Always Desire Your Natural,
