Constant exposure to heat, pollution and dirt coupled with heat styling and over-washing can wreak havoc on your strands. Therefore, it’s no wonder that your hair ends up looking dry and frizzy, making you want to style your hair all the more.
But with the ongoing lockdown in most parts of the country, now is the perfect opportunity to give your hair a break from all the heat tools and give it the much-needed TLC it receives. Don’t know where to start? Here are five super simple tips and effective tips for taming frizzy hair and pampering your tresses during the lockdown.
01. Hot oil massage
Hot oil massages are a simple and cost-effective way to reduce frizz and achieve super soft and shiny hair. Heating makes any hair oil thinner, which helps it sink into your scalp faster and spread more efficiently, thereby reducing breakage. Cover your hair with a shower cap for that spa-like feel. Wash it all off and you’ve got salon-style soft and shiny hair.

02. Deep conditioning treatment
If hair oiling is not your thing, don’t worry, we’ve something for you too. Once a week, pamper your strands with a super nourishing and hydrating deep conditioning hair mask. Irrespective of your hair type, texture or density, a deep conditioning hair mask is the answer to most of your hair woes. From repairing chemically treated hair to reviving thick, coarse curls, it can completely rejuvenate your dull tresses.

03. Wash your hair less often
Now that you’re mostly at home, your hair and scalp are much less exposed to dirt, pollution, harsh sun rays and other environmental aggressors. This means your hair remains cleaner for a more extended period and doesn’t need to be washed using harsh surfactants that often. So limit your hair washes to two times a week and use a milder sulphate-free formula to avoid stripping your hair and scalp of essential natural oils.

04. Air dry
The best thing about being indoors all the time is that you don’t have to care how your hair looks. Therefore, it is the perfect time to skip that blow drier and allow your hair to just air dry. And on days when you do need to use the heat styling tools (for Zoom meetings or virtual dates), apply a pump or two of smoothening hair serum to tame the frizz, enhance shine and give your hair look super soft and glossy.
