We all experience bad hair days. This is when our hair shows the worst look, and there is not much we can do to avoid it. The most common complaints are flat and frizzy hair. If you have curls, they might not stay in place or without definition.
While there are many reasons your hair is misbehaving (diet, hormones, too much copper in your water, thyroid issues, smoking, etc.) most often, it is because of the weather. It can ruin your day, and to try to make it better, weather apps have been created to predict bad hair days.
One example is the Frizz Forecast Index. This app is based on the frizz factor, which measures the frizz level that can be expected under various conditions for any hair type. Developed by AccuWeather.com, the formula correlates atmospheric humidity measurements, dew points, heat, cold, wind, and precipitations to accurately indicate whether you’re likely to experience frizzy and static hair.
Another option is the How’s Your Hair app and website for bad hair prediction. It will show you the weather and translate it into usable beauty tips. It’ll tell you the current weather (overcast, rainy, sunny), as well as the wind and humidity, and let you know if you’re going to need an umbrella or a hat, if you’re going to be frizzy or if it’s going to be a good hair day. It also shows the next-day predictions.
Finally, the My Hair Weather – Personalized Frizz Forecast has predictions for your hometown or travel destination, so you know what to expect. It also gives tips matched to the weather to help you manage your hair no matter what is coming. Another feature is product recommendations tailored to your hair and particular needs under current weather conditions.
