Want shiny, healthier hair that could rival the hair you see in a shampoo ad? Perhaps what your hair really needs is a vacation. A recent survey analyzed the wind conditions, water softness, and other statistics of major U.S. cities to come up with the ultimate list of the best places to go for a good hair day.
10: Boston, MA
The Perks: Boston has naturally soft water (water with less minerals present) which means it’s gentler on your hair.
9: Denver, CO
The Perks: No soft water here, but the city makes up for it with its low humidity levels (67% to be precise).
8: Los Angeles, CA
The Perks: Although Los Angeles has pollution (which is not good for your hair) it also has consistent weather almost year round, and less wind to bother your hair.
7: Miami, FL
The Perks: If you are prone to frizz this may not be the place for you, but Miami is one of the least polluted cities in the country, making it a prime destination for anyone with dull, grey, or thinning hair.
6: New York, NY
The Perks: New York has the ideal type of water for hair care. It also has more hair salons per capita than most cities in the country, making hair restoration a breeze.
5: San Francisco, CA
The Perks: Well, this city certainly has its fair share of humidity and rain, but the good news is that the weather is constant. If you can get past the initial period, your hair should get quite comfortable with the conditions.
4: Anchorage, AK
The Perks: Low pollution levels, low wind levels, and soft water make this city great for hair – if you can get past the cold.
3: San Diego, CA
The Perks: A daily dose of sunny, pleasant weather that almost never changes is the perfect combination for your hair.
2: Honolulu, HI
The Perks: You can treat your hair to soft water, clean air, and plenty of hair salons.
1: Santa Barbara, CA
The Perks: All of the above. If you took all the best environmental traits and combined them, Santa Barbara is what you’d get.
