One of the hardest parts of dealing with Portland’s rainy winters has got to be dealing with a wet, frizzy mop on the regular. I consulted my go to hair gal Jami Kenna at Red Magnolia Salon for some much needed guidance.

Here’s the scoop:

If you have curly locks don’t fight it, rock it! Kenna recommends using a humidity resistant product like Relaxing Fluid by Davines to keep the frizz at bay, and let your natural texture do its thing. For straight hair, spritz Hair Resort spray by Kevin Murphy after blow-drying. Next, twist your hair up into a high top knot style bun and once you arrive to your destination, take out the bun and shake it out. Hair Resort spray gives your hair awesome beachy texture that won’t be ruined by the rain. Lastly, Ms. Kenna suggests skipping the hot irons if you’ll be exposed to the elements and saving your hair from the heat damage. Instead try a messy side braid, or my go to move, a giant wide brimmed floppy hat. All products are available at Red Magnolia, and to book an appointment with Jami Kenna click here.
