The amount of moisture in the air during the warmer months is high and leads to the dreaded frizz. While humectants help maintain moisture during the colder months, they attract moisture from the air during the summer months. Moisture in the air causes the hair shaft to expand producing the accidental afro, not the fly fro. In a nutshell, humectants are your fair –weather friends, meaning they act differently depending on the weather. They are able to absorb water and seal in moisture, which sounds like a win win right? Well, yes and no. Humidity, climate and dew point are all factors in how humectants will affect your hair. In order for the humectants to pull moisture, the air’s humidity must be at least 70%*. If the air does not have enough moisture in it, this will not happen. If the dew point is low, it could have the opposite effect and cause more dryness.
