    Default Anyone else's hair enjoy rain?

    I always hear around me people complaining about the rain 'ruining their hair'. True, it ruins any style in the hair, but personally I enjoy it. I don't really style my hair very much any more though.. when I did, rain was my enemy. However, I'm in a part of the US now that is going to have like, a whole week of rain; the sun hasn't peeked out in days. I haven't been soaked by it yet but my hair has been decently damp or wet and when it dries, it feels even softer than previously. I don't really have any problems with frizz, but when the rain hits it and it dries, it seems way more voluminous (yay!) and wavy, than when I shower and comb it out with a wide-toothed comb.

    I actually love the style my hair takes when it's been dampened by rain, and for some reason it becomes way softer. The waves are big and nice, something I've tried doing in the past with tools/products to no avail. Does anyone else find their hair at its best when it's been rained on? Maybe some pictures ? I should take some tomorrow.

    Yeah, I've noticed the same thing. My hair feels great after a rain ... it's got some more controlled wave to it and is nice and soft.

    I think that's because rainwater is usually soft (as in soft water instead of hard water.) Unless you live in an area with really bad acid rain ... in which case you'd be bald. (Just kidding!)

    It's best if my hairstyle can survive getting rained on... we get a lot of rain here, and the humidity is often high whether it's raining or not. I haven't really paid much attention to style in the last while, though. So yes, my simple buns and braids are fine in the rain, lol. Do I like it? Well.. my hair is fine so it can get the drowned-rat look fairly easily. I don't much like that. But I do like the tiny ringlets around my hairline.

    The only time I get bummed is when I've gone to the trouble of straightening my hair. Then I don't want it to get wet. I haven't done that in months, though.

    I think I'm in the same area.. flood warnings and the rivers are up like crazy..

    But my hair is soft! It is a bit flat though after it gets wet. It hs been acting very nice this week otherwise.

    My hair also likes rain. I've always loved running out in the rain (I rarely styled my hair even before LHC because I'm lazy), my hair would get wavy and soft. It's funny that I've always thought my hair was straight and that it was just a weird "drying pattern" that the rain caused that made it wavy lol.
    But my hair and I both love the rain.

    My hair goes so nice and curly when it's sprinkled by rain. Or even when I'm drenched it turns out lovely, but I don't particularly like being soaking wet :P

    Oh yes My hair becomes so soft!

    When I was in Germany a couple of months ago I co-washed like always. Not a good idea. My hair became dry and greasy at the same time. So when it was raining one evening I was so happy! My boyfriend HATES rain and thought I was crazy for standing and jumping around outside while waiting for the bus, when everyone else were clumped together under a roof (to be honest, I think that everybody there thought I was crazy). But afterwards my hair actually felt like hair again

    No >.< My hair is fine, so it soaks it all up and then my hair just looks like, strings. Strings piled up on top of my head. Haha. Though it doesn't really do anything to my style unless i have straightened it.
