Bad Hair Day

Today, where I live, the humidity is 90%. NINETY.

In New Mexico, it's arrid and dry. Humidity? Like, 25%.

You're probably wondering why this even matters.

I have naturally curly hair.

Suddenly, this all makes sense, doesn't it?

Humidity = bad for curly hair.

Arrid, dry = awesome hair.

New Mexico hair = every day is a good hair day.

California hair = a hot mess.

In case you're not quite sure what this all boils down to, here's some visuals:

I have some product suggestions, as we have insanley humid summers here! After 5 years, I finally figured out what to use. Samy Mousse - the yellow one (I buy it at RiteAid), Samy aerosol spray - the orange one for hold and Aussie Scrunch hairspray for frizz. The Aussie spray has a bit of oil in it, so don't spray on the top of your head. Spray on hand then wipe where needed on top. I promise this will help for much happier hair days! =)

Oh, what a great post! I am kind of the opposite with my hair though. I grew up in Minnesota where it was mostly humid, so it was perrrrfect for my straight here. Dry climate? Not so much. I'm on the frizzy side there.
