As much as we’d like to believe that April showers have passed and May flowers have sprung, a glimpse outside quickly snaps us back to reality. With Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer, only a week away we can only hope that these cloudy skies disappear, stat!

In the meantime it looks like we’ll have to brave another week of hair wrecking thunderstorms. Before succumbing to torrential downpours and even that highly annoying mist that neither an umbrella nor hood can save your hair from, here are a few quick solutions for rain-proofing your ‘do.


Joico Humidity Blocker Finishing Shield, $4.50
Naturally straight strands will benefit from this soft hold spray that will keep fly-aways at bay.


Organix Rejuvenating Cherry Blossom Ginseng Miracle Defrizzment Cream, $7
If you get caught in a downpour rub this cream into your damp hair to help prevent a poufy mess when it dries.


Aussie Aussome Volume Spray Gel, $4
Curls and precipitation are obvious archenemies, but a lightweight spray gel can calm coils and banish frizz without the crunchiness of heavier gels.

Goody Ouchless Headband, $3.29
Weather your hair is short, long, curly or straight, a cute headband instantly refines rain ravaged ‘dos.
