Curly Hair and Climate: Adjusting Your Routine for the Seasons


I'll dive into the fascinating world of curly hair and its unique relationship with the weather. Throughout this blog, I'll explore how different seasons can affect curly hair—varying levels of humidity, temperature, and moisture in the air all play a role. I'll discuss adapting your hair care routine to ensure your curls look great no matter the time of year.

Why Does Climate Affect Curly Hair?

Curly hair is unique and beautiful, but it can also be a bit temperamental. One factor that can greatly impact curly hair is the climate. The changing seasons bring different levels of humidity, temperature, and moisture in the air, all of which can affect the health and appearance of your curls. So, how can you adjust your hair care routine to keep your curls looking their best all year round? Let's find out!

Spring: Embrace the Moisture

As the weather starts to warm up and humidity levels rise, curly hair tends to become more prone to frizz. To combat this, it's important to focus on moisturizing your curls. Look for hydrating shampoos and conditioners that will help retain moisture in your hair. Deep conditioning treatments and leave-in conditioners can also work wonders in keeping your curls hydrated and frizz-free.

Summer: Protect and Hydrate

Summer can be particularly challenging for curly hair, as the combination of heat and humidity can lead to excessive frizz and dryness. To protect your curls, consider using a heat protectant spray before styling with hot tools. Opt for hairstyles that keep your hair off your neck and face to stay cool and minimize frizz. Additionally, using a lightweight, water-based moisturizer can help keep your curls hydrated without weighing them down.

Fall: Repair and Nourish

As the weather starts to cool down, it's time to repair any damage caused by the summer sun and prepare your curls for the upcoming dryness of winter. Treat your hair to deep conditioning masks and protein treatments to restore strength and vitality. Look for products that contain nourishing ingredients like argan oil or shea butter to keep your curls moisturized and healthy.

Winter: Combat Dryness

Winter weather can be harsh on curly hair, as the cold air and indoor heating can strip moisture from your strands, leaving them dry and brittle. To combat this, focus on sealing in moisture. Use a rich, emollient conditioner and consider adding a hair oil or serum to your routine to lock in hydration. Avoid excessive heat styling and protect your curls with a satin or silk scarf or bonnet while sleeping to prevent breakage.
