7 Protective Hairstyles That Are Perfect For The Rainy Season | Spoiler: No Weaves Or Wigs!

Rainy season is in full force in Nigeria and other parts of west Africa. One minute the sun is up and the next, there is a heavy downpour. With the rains, our hair is the first to get hit and you know what this means? Besides ruining that beautiful hair you spent hours at the salon getting done, the rain also strips your hair of its natural oils and nutrients, leaving it frizzy and brittle.

Having to deal with so much moisture and humidity can take its toll on the look and feel of our tresses. However, don’t forget to use your moisturising products and seal with any natural oil of your choice. In order to keep the rain from ruining your freshly styled hair, you may want to consider a low-maintenance protective hairstyle like the ones we’ve curated below. The best part is that even if your hair gets wet, all you need to do is towel dry or air dry and you are good to go!
