Guide to humidity-proof hair

Guide to humidity-proof hair

Curly, wavy or straight, regardless of hair types, humid weather makes sure everyone ends up with frizzy hair at some point or the other. When exposed to humid conditions, dry hair tends to soak up the moisture, causing it to swell, following which the cuticles along the strands split, which results in hair frizz. However, it’s not just dry hair. After chemical treatment, or color hair can also become porous enough to see the same outcome. 

Humidity and hair may not get along well, but with the right products, you can achieve soft hair in humid weather as well.

How to get healthy hair: Easy hair care tips for reducing frizz

The first step is to understand that excess moisture and/or humidity is NOT good for your hair - it causes brittleness and breakage. So, the less moisture your hair absorbs, the stronger and more elastic it gets. However, where do you start with this in your hair care routine? First, it’s about educating yourself about the products that feature in your hair care routine - it’s always important to know what you’re using on your hair and scalp and HOW it is helping you attain the desired results. And when it comes to effective frizz-control, we recommend the iluvia Damage Defence Duo comprising the Sulfate Free Shampoo and the Hydrophobic Hair Repair Mask. Here’s why these are the perfect products for hair in humid weather.

The Sulfate Free Shampoo has been created from the ground up using unique technology. Its Micro Emulsion formula ensures even the most porous or damaged hair is thoroughly cleansed - but in a gentle yet effective way. The shampoo maintains hair’s natural lipid barrier, minimizes dryness and frizz, and protects damaged hair & sensitive scalp from further damage. It also plays a big part in preventing hair loss, giving you the best results, and we’re talking about soft and supple hair that’s incredibly easy to manage.

Additional benefits of the Sulfate Free Shampoo: puts the shine back into your hair, the difference will be noticeable right after the first wash itself – even with humidity, your hair will be picture perfect. Best of all, the Sulfate Free Shampoo is compatible with damaged, chemically-treated & coloured hair as well. 

The second part of the Damage Defense Duo is the Hydrophobic Hair Repair Mask. It pairs perfectly with the Sulfate Free Shampoo and enhances the results you seek for frizz-free hair. If you’re wondering what to do with your hair in humid temperatures or how to keep your hair well managed with humidity, then this is the next step. 

The Hair Repair Mask constitutes a revolutionary moisture-repelling formula that helps control humidity-induced frizz. When it comes to moisture, the strength of hair fibers reduces when water is absorbed. This results in your hair structure swelling up, making it brittle and frizzy.

The hydrophobic formula of the iluvia Hair Repair Mask repels moisture from hair, which restores the hair and scalp’s natural moisture balance. The low moisture content ensures hair proteins are flatter and reduces friction and static. It significantly minimizes frizz in humid weather, strengthens hair, and makes it less prone to breakage.

Moreover, the moisture-repelling Hair Repair Mask also prevents tangles. It helps repair dry and brittle hair while protecting it from humidity. The Hair Repair Mask is also professionally recommended if you’ve got hair treatments such as smoothening, keratin, straightening, cysteine and colouring done.

If you want to go a step further in your anti humidity hair treatment,  the best thing to incorporate is the Intensive Hair Care Serum. The hair serum is ideal for humidity and natural hair since it restores the hair’s lipid barrier and reduces frizz. Featuring Argan Oil & Olive Squalene Oil, it makes hair softer and shinier without weighing it down. Furthermore, it contains the goodness of Baobab Seed Oil, which helps repair brittle hair.

The crux of the matter is that ensuring frizz doesn’t ruin your hair is as easy as tweaking your routine to include the right products. Ones that are specially formulated to rein in the frizz and leave out the humidity & moisture. Shop our Damage Defense Duo and hair serum today for frizz-free, tangle-free, well-managed hair.
