What's the deal with curls and humidity?

Ever wondered why your curls seem to have a mind of their own, especially when it's humid out? Let's unpack it!

Curl Science 101
Humidity means there's moisture in the air, and curly hair is like a moisture detective — it can spot it from a mile away. Your curls absorb this moisture causing the hair shaft to swell and disrupt the smooth curl pattern. The result? Hello, frizz!

Battle of the Bonds
Your hair is made up of keratin proteins that form bonds to keep its shape. Humidity adds extra hydrogen bonds to your hair, making it forget its usual curly cues and go a bit haywire. It's not rebellion; it's science!

Embrace the Bounce
While humidity can be a party crasher, it also brings out your hair’s natural texture and volume. Yes, it might mean more frizz but it also means more body and bounce. Every cloud has a silver lining, right?

Frizz Fighters
Want to keep your curls defined and delightful, even on the dampest days? Check out Clever Curl's Humid Weather Gel designed to create a barrier between your hair and the great wet world. It's like an invisible umbrella for your curls!

Hydration Harmony
Keep your hair well-hydrated with leave-in conditioners. Well-moisturized hair is less likely to seek moisture from the air. It’s a way of telling your hair, "Thanks, but I’ve got all the moisture I need right here!"

Curly friends, humidity might sound like a challenge, but it’s also a chance to embrace and celebrate the natural beauty and versatility of your curls.
