I doubt TS Eliot suffered from dull roots but getting caught in the rain doesn’t have to mean a bad hair day.
Go with the flow
If your hair is soaking wet, go with it. Work several handfuls of mousse into hair from roots-to-ends for a (purposefully) separated texture that doesn’t look too polished or flat. Then create shape use a wide-toothed comb to smooth back the front section, push forward to create a quiff and clip into place. Finish by gathering hair at the nape of the neck and securing into a low ponytail.
If your hair is damp but there’s no time to style again, warm some treatment oil in your palms and squeeze through the lengths and ends, leaving it to dry naturally for a soft, silky finish. The slicked-back look is killer – add more oil as its drying for a more polished finish.
The tiniest amount of moisture will make hair frizz, so clean up fly-aways by warming a pea-sized amount of balm in the palms of your hands and using your fingers to flatten out wisps. Alternatively, mist a hairbrush with hairspray and gently smooth over the hair framing your face.
Time for a Topknot
Can’t tame the fly-aways? Opt for a bun on top of your head. Create a clean centre or side-parting, spray through some texturing spray, scrunch the mid-lengths and ends, leave to air-dry, then twist into a top knot.
Weather-Proof your Hair
A slick style is the perfect wet weather style as it’s less likely to transform into bad hair. Try a sleek ballerina bun or tight plaits to keep the frizz under control. Use balm instead of a hairspray so it reactivates when damp, then use your fingers to tidy up if you need to after going out in a shower.
Boost your Roots
The biggest problem you have is flatness. If you have time to let hair air-dry simply add volume to your roots with a blast of dry shampoo.
When you’ve spent 30 minutes in the morning perfecting a blow-dry and been out in the rain the underneath sections of your hair should be dry, so simply gather the top section and tie it into a mini ponytail or bun leaving the bottom blow-dried section to flow free.
Choose a Wide Tooth Comb
When your hair is wet, stay away from your usual hair brush and opt for a wide-tooth comb or tangle teezer instead. Using a fine-toothed comb or bristle brush will cause breakage to your hair.
