Forecast Friendly: New Weatherproof Wonders

Your trusty wellies now stand proud nearest the door, and your new puffer has found inner happiness on the hook second from the left. But still – your hair hangs limp in denial.

Time to face the five-day forecast, as it calls for rain (with areas of patchy humidity).

But there’s a sunny spell – with these curly and smooth ways to stay ahead of the weather. Here’s the proof:


Smooth Operator

It might seem like a mane management must, but it’s a weatherproofing step often missed (when storming out the door): always finish your style with Weather Proof Finish Anti-humidity Hairspray. This medium hold spray with shine provides a hair-smoothing, frizz-taming finish by helping to keep water out of the hair shaft.

Smooth tip: For super smooth, use a concentrator nozzle and start at the roots, drying in a downwards motion as you go mid-length to tips. End on a cool blast setting (this will help set your style and smooth cuticles flat), then apply Weather Proof Finish from a distance to achieve an even, light coating and perfect finish.

When the weather wreaks havoc and every curl counts - don’t frizz up. Weather proof your wavy and lock in natural curl and wave patterns with Weather Proof Curls Finishing Cream. This lightweight, anti-humidity finishing cream conditions, moisturizes and tames with a flexible frizz-free hold.

Curly tip: Avoid rough drying or wringing out your hair after washing (as this ruffles cuticles). Instead, gently squeeze wet hair in a downwards direction to remove excess water, then blot dry using a towel. Allow curls to air dry (or use a diffuser), then apply Weather Proof Curls to your finished style. Ensure hands are well coated for an even application and the best protection.
