These Hair Savers Will Redeem a Rainy Day

Photos by Crystal Nicodemus

April showers bring May flowers, frizzy roots and deflated volume. Here in Seattle (Nordstrom’s flagship and home base), we’re no strangers to rainy weather and know all too well how drizzle will ruin a blowout within minutes.

Spare your hair and ready yourself with these rainy weather must-haves that save your strands in soggy situations. Read on for our shopping list.

Apply this pre-shampoo to dry hair before stepping into the shower. The blend of natural oils helps revive damaged hair while treating the ends to a smoothing elixir.

MOROCCANOIL smoothing shampoo

Wash away the Leonor Greyl treatment with a shampoo that softens and conditions. Argan oil and argan butter helps each strand retain more moisture, making sure that your finished ’do is sleek and well tamed. Follow with MOROCCANOIL® smoothing shampoo.

Your hair is at its most fragile state when it is wet. Instead of rubbing it with a normal bath towel, wrap it gently with the Aquis, which is designed to absorb moisture better, cutting both frizz and drying time by half. (And that means less time spent using damaging heat tools.)

For lightweight texture and heavy-duty moisture, this hair oil provides anti-frizz protection, static control and manageability. You’re left with only the softest, silkiest tresses. Use on damp hair just before styling.

Use your Dyson Supersonic with the diffuser to define the shape of your hair without making it stand on end. The magnetic attachment is designed to disperse air evenly around each strand, while negative ions eliminate static. The result? A natural-looking “air” dry.
Oribe Impermeable anti-humid spray

As the name suggests, this finishing product protects the hair from unsightly frizz on even the muggiest of days—warm or cold, day or night. Curls and sleek blowouts alike will appreciate this smoothing spray, which leaves behind a shiny finish and Oribe’s signature Cote d’Azur scent.

After exerting all that effort to look perfectly coiffed, rest your head on something silky. This finely woven silk pillowcase is made to extend the life of your style and keep it intact. The silk prevents the friction that causes breakage and will not strip the hair of its natural moisture.

Sometimes, even with the best preparation, the only way to get through rainy days is to stop fighting them. When you’re ready to throw in the (Aquis) towel, a cute cap or brightly colored beanie will be your best accessory. That, plus a trusty umbrella and hope for sunnier days ahead.
