Surviving the April Hairpocalypse
By Beatrice Strnad
Surviving the April Hairpocalypse! Hair beware: The April “Hairpocalypse” is upon us. While you might spend ages getting your hair just right, April could care less. April laughs in the face of styling tools, blowouts and bangs. There’s nothing the month loves more than sneaking under your hair-shielding umbrella to add a bout of frizz to your look. But enough is enough, ladies. While we can’t control the weather, we can take the proper measures to ensure that hair doom is not imminent. With these tips, we shall survive.
Survival Tip No. 1: Go Natural
Put down the hair straightener. I repeat, put down the hair straightener. The Hairpocalypse is no time for heat-styling tools. Take a shower and let your hair air dry. Whatever you’re left with is what you’re going to be working with this month. It’s time to embrace whatever curl or wave you’ve been styling away from the world. Trust me, it’s beautiful, and with the right products and styles, you won’t miss the heat.
Survival Tip No. 2: Know Your Hairpocalypse Allies
- Oil, wax, pomade: These are our best defense against the onslaught of H2O. Wax and pomade are especially great for short hair and will help avoid the hair-plastered-to-your-face or mad-scientist frizz looks. For my long, bottom-curling hair, my favorite weapon is oil — argan oil to be exact. It’s light enough to not make me greasy, and will lock my curls down and fend off frizz.
