Monsoons are terrible for your hair. From dandruff to hair fall to flat and limp hair, the humid weather and unpredictable rain in this season wreak havoc on our mane. While we can’t really help with the humidity and rain forecast, we sure can make your life better with a few tips that will help you add volume to your dull, limp hair this monsoon. Read on!
- Choose the right shampoo
- Blow-dry your hair upside down
- Keep dry shampoo handy
- Pick the right hairstyle
Choose the right shampoo
The increase in humidity sends your sebaceous glands into overdrive, causing them to produce more oil on the scalp. While you’ll be tempted to wash your hair every day to get rid of the grease, we highly suggest you don’t. Instead, stick to washing your hair 2-3 times a week with a volumising shampoo like the Love Beauty & Planet Natural Coconut Water & Mimosa Volume Shampoo. Unlike regular shampoos that contain harsh chemicals which strip your hair of its natural oils, this one contains plant-based cleansers and organic coconut water that clean your hair and add oodles of volume. Plus, the refreshing fragrance of Moroccan mimosas leaves your hair with a refreshing floral scent.
Blow-dry your hair upside down
Blow drying your hair the right way can add some serious volume to your tresses. Instead of blow drying your hair the usual way, bend forward and flip your hair upside down and start blow-drying them from the root. This causes your roots to lift from the scalp, making your hair look super voluminous.
Keep dry shampoo handy
Monsoon for people with naturally oily scalp means double whammy! The excess oil makes your hair appear limp and dull, and the season just multiples your woes. While shampooing and keeping a clean scalp is essential, we suggest keeping a dry shampoo handy. The dry shampoos absorb excess oil and add volume and texture to your fine, limp hair.
Pick the right hairstyle
Straight hair tends to look flat during the monsoon, whatever hairstyle you might choose to put it up in. Keeping your hair short or adding layers to your long hair allows movement and adds texture that makes them appear voluminous. A lob or shag is a great way to go if you do decide to chop off your tresses.
On the other hand, if you can’t let go of your long tresses, you can add highlights to them to make them appear voluminous. Choose warm tones like toffee brown or chestnut to add balayage highlights to give an illusion of volume to your dull, limp hair!
