Rainy Day Deeper Moisturizer

My bun: Not fancy but it was sooo soft!
Good morning!

My fellow Georgians (and people in the Southern US in general) would know that this week has been pretty wet and yucky...

If you read my last wash-day post, you'll know that I was feeling pretty upset with my hair's moisture levels (or lack thereof...) since my last relaxer.

I decided to use the rainy weather to my advantage! Here's how:
The night before, I moisturized my hair heavily with a moisturizer that contains glycerin (I chose to use HairVeda's Busy Izzy Gets Buttered Up) and baggied overnight. The next morning, I fashioned my hair into a sleek bun and headed out the door.   
Because glycerin is a humectant, when used in your hair it pulls the moisture from the air to your hair! And on a rainy Atlanta day, there's plenty of moisture to spare!! (Note: if you live in a dry/cold/arid environment, using glycerin may not be such a good idea as it will have the opposite effect--sucking moisture from your hair.). All day I couldn't stop smushing my super soft bun!
After doing this for three days in a row, my hair feels super moisturized (even though it looks a reverted, textured H.A.M.).

How do you use the weather to maximize your hair regimen?

Until next time,

  1. That's a great idea! Way to use this crap weather to your hair's advantage! Are yall supposed to be getting snow too?

  2. I do the same thing! I love spraying liberal amounts of S-Curl in my hair and then bunning on humid days. The soft, supple, squishy hair always gives me a little thrill! #hairnerd

  3. Yes!! I would have used S-Curl but I ran out and never re-purchased it...

  4. Northern GA got snow... we got cold, windy, rain/sleet lol

  5. I live in Oregon (but am originally from NC) and I have definitely learned to use the wet winter climate to my advantage! I find that my hair does better here than the other places I have lived (NC and Hawaii)! In the winter, glycerin is a part of my DC routine and my hair loves it! I don't know what I will do when I move back south next year!

  6. Oooh! I would think that Hawaii would have a moister/more humid climate (I've never been!)! It's so interesting that so many women say that their hair fares better in some regions than other... I've only lived in the south during my HHJ so idk if my hair would like somewhere else more...

  7. Hi Shika! Surprisingly, Hawaii was not as humid as the South ... Well, it felt that way to me! However, there is a lot of salt in the air that dries outs your hair. Also, having the blazing sun right overhead 365 doesn't help!

  8. Thanks for this information ....and yes climate puts an big impact on hair loss...

  9. For beautiful, natural hair right nutrition is crucial. The basic elements for healthy hair growth should be provided from inside out. I also take nutritional supplement Hair Gain Formula by Military Grade in order to support my hair and fight seasonal hair loss. This product contains unique herbal compounds, which make it effective and safe to take. This product is the only nutraceutical which possesses prostaglandin D2 blocking properties. In 6 months my hair has become visibly thicker, and I don't suffer from hair loss as much as I used to.
