Wet weather. It’s the arch-enemy of hair everywhere. We’re on a mission to solve your wet weather woes with the help of beauty blogger, Azraa Mohamed.

It’s got a reputation for being relentless and taking no prisoners – like it’s on a secret mission to cramp your style. Wet weather affects everyone’s hair differently, but there are three common complaints we hear time and time again about the hairy consequences of this natural foe – static, frizz and tangles. 

Put a stop to the static

Nature can be cruel, especially in the wetter, colder seasons. The dry air in winter – especially in our Northern provinces - creates more static electricity, which can have a negative effect on your hair. There’s nothing worse than leaving the house with hair that looks sleek and shiny and arriving at your destination with your flyaways and bangs standing on end – literally. Add a beanie or hat to the equation and the effects can be hair-raising. 

Azraa recommends using hair oils, “As they’re a great way to tame static, with a few drops going a long way.”

Fight the frizz

We know it to be true – with wet weather comes wind. It’s an inevitable and unfortunate reality that can wreak havoc on your hair. 

Azraa has two simple solutions for fighting the frizz – hair masks and leave-in conditioners. She also recommends staying away from heat styling as much as possible in order to prevent damage, frazzled strands and split-ends. 

Detangle your do

Getting rid of tangles in winter can be quite a mission, especially if you’re the get-up-and-go kind of girl and you leave the house with wet hair. Excess tangling can cause breakage, so it should be avoided as much as possible. 

Azraa generally avoids brushing her hair when it’s wet because it can be quite damaging, but when she’s in a rush, a Tangle Teezer or wet detangling brush can work wonders. She also suggests tying your hair in a bun or pony, especially when sleeping, to reduce those nasty knots.
