How To Have A Good Hair Day In The Rain

With spring showers inevitably popping up in abundance this season, don’t let a little rain ruin your day—or your hair. Combat the elements with a few key practices and we promise, a little drizzle will have nothing on your locks.

Stock Up On The Right Products

Weatherproof your hair with products that fight frizz and humidity. Apply a nourishing styling cream to damp locks, then once dry, finish the look with a protective hairspray that acts as a barrier for your mane.

Choose A Fitting Hairstyle
