Summer fun, summer love, summer food, summer hair, summer patio sessions, and humidity. Yes, we know, all your fun summer feelings just came to a screeching halt. Humidity kills anyone’s fun summer buzz! Sorry, but not sorry: this is a subject that no curl can escape from thinking about and addressing. Literally.

Humidity is an essential part of our atmosphere, and it’s necessary for all forms of life on our precious and delicate planet. Moisture balance plays a huge part in our lives as well, especially for people with curly hair. The lack of, or excess of humidity (depending on where you live) determines whether you have an easy-peasy styling experience, or a frustrating one. As we all know, curly hair is very different from straight hair – it’s actually a bit magical. Curls are very porous, which means curly hair has a greater ability to absorb and retain moisture – a much greater ability than straight hair. So, when its humid, you can literally watch curly hair expand the minute it is exposed to humidity (this is the magic part). Moisture in the air or humidity causes curls to expand very quickly. Some of us curly heads rejoice in humidity, because the moisture in the air helps to define the S-formation of a curl. The rest of us curly and kinky heads despise humidity and avoid it like a chatty uber driver (no five-star rating for you, Humidity!)

Now here’s something you may or may not know, whether you are new to the “natural hair” game or not. Throw it back to grade 3 science: water and oil don’t mix. They repel each other, and stay separate – no matter how hard you try to mix them! So, this means that if you are using products that contain silicones or oils to control frizz in humid weather – trying to fight moisture with oil-based products – you are sure to lose the battle.
