You know it’s unreasonably humid when your Groodle loses the curl out of his coat. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a dog sweat before.
And it’s not just our furry friends feeling the effects of the sticky weather. A brisk walk to the bus stop each day leaves me akin to emerging from a Swedish sauna without the benefit of a roll in the snow.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, the humid conditions are the result of a low-level trough which has been hanging over Perth for the past two days.
The moisture in the trough condensed, which caused the humidity to rise above 50 per cent and as much as 65 per cent on Rottnest Island.
The BoM has described the current humidity as “quite high”. For the rest of us that means energy-sapping, bad hair days.
Hairdresser Julie Bridle of John Opacak’s Evo Hair in Subiaco said that humidity had a strange effect on hair and that there wasn’t much you could do about it.
“I just keep my hair moist and swept back until the humidity is over,” she said. Ms Bridle said that there were commercially available products that could help.
“Some people really recommend Argan oil,” she said.
Argan is a plant-oil from Morocco said to “help to tame frizzy hair”.
The good news is that the humid conditions are expected to ease later in the week as strong sea breezes push out the trough. That will also lead to lower maximum temperatures.
In the meantime, I’m using electric curlers on the Groodle. And maybe some Argan oil.
