Causes and prevention of humidity hair

At Rossano Ferretti Parma, we have very few frustrations. We’re an easy-going, passionate community that spends hours studying and perfecting hair artistry. However, there’s one challenge that frequently disrupted our days in the past, and we call it “humidity hair.” You’ve likely experienced it too, which is why you are here.

You’ve spent time treating and smoothing your hair into a soft, chic “do,” only for your strands to go awry once you head out the door. It’s frustrating, we know. This effect is even more prominent in summer when the air is humid. The good news is that our studies have led us to effective prevention methods to keep humidity from our hair. Now, life is always bene (good).

We share our secrets below.


How do I know if my hair has been affected by hair humidity?

If your hair is frizzy, poufy, kinky, or listless and flat, it’s most likely been affected by humidity in the air.

This “humidity hair,” as we call it, is a result of warm, sticky moisture bonding to our hair shafts, creating a “lift” motion that causes annoying flyaways or the opposite effect – limp, listless tresses.

How does humidity affect different hair types?

Since we all have different hair types, it makes sense that we have unique experiences with humidity. But, for the most part, humidity affects different hair types as follows –

Hair with high porosity will absorb a lot of moisture quickly. When humidity sets in, your hair reaches out to absorb the moisture in the air. During this process, the cuticle is lifted, and you’re left with frizzy, frazzled hair.  On the other hand, if you have thin, fine strands or lower porosity hair, the moisture in the air can weigh down your locks, causing your hair to go limp.

No matter your hair type, your hair will always look for moisture in the air if it’s dehydrated. This is why keeping hair optimally moisturised is your first strategy toward combating hair humidity! When your hair is hydrated, there is less room for the moisture from the air to seep in and cause havoc.

Tip: Establish your hair’s porosity by placing a strand of your hair in a glass of water. If it has high porosity, it will sink. Low porosity hair will float to the top. Medium porosity hair will hover in the middle.


Our secret – how to prevent humidity hair:

We discussed how different types of hair have their own way of reacting to humidity. This is why humidity hair prevention differs from person to person. Leaving no one out, Rossano Ferretti Parma has created multiple formulas that prevent hair humidity for all hair types. Here they are –
