If you've got curly hair, chances are the monsoon-induced hair frizziness that all of us dread hits you the hardest. While styling curls can be a minefield even on regular days, the monsoon brings about a plethora of changes — ranging from dryness and uncalled-for volume to straight-up unmanageable hair. And while your go-to option may be to hide away for the rest of the season or book heavy-duty salon appointments every week, we've got a better option for you. Here are the most effective curly hair tips that'll help you embrace your natural curls during the monsoon. Check ‘em out.
- 01. Wash your hair a few times a week
- 02. Use a serum
- 03. Bye bye bleach
- 04. Avoid straightening treatments
- 05. Mask it up
01. Wash your hair a few times a week
Unfortunately, just because your hair got drenched in the rain doesn't mean that you can skip out on your regular washes. Wash your hair 2-3 times a week regardless of whether you stepped out or not, and when you do, use the Love Beauty & Planet Natural Argan Oil & Lavender Anti-Frizz Shampoo. It contains the goodness of pure Moroccan argan oil and 100% organic coconut oil, which will ensure your ringlets stay frizz-free, bouncy, and healthy all year round. The anti-frizz shampoo also contains lavender, which will improve your hair health and make it smell incredible too.
02. Use a serum
While rigorously oiling your hair may be a little too heavy-duty for the monsoon since it may increase oiliness, do you know what you can do? Use a serum! The TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hair Serum contains the goodness of camellia oil, which will nourish your curls like no other while also not weighing them down. Don't use it on your roots — only apply from mid-length to ends — and you can rest assured that your curls will be frizz-free.
03. Bye bye bleach
Bleach and the monsoons don't go together, especially when it comes to curly hair. If you're thinking of a drastic change that involves a carton of bleach, we'd suggest you pull the plug on the plans or at least wait till the monsoon is over. Bleaching your hair can dehydrate it at the speed of light, and for girls with curly hair, that means only one thing — frizzy, dry, damaged locks that can take months to get better. Step away from the bleach!
04. Avoid straightening treatments
Girls, embrace your natural curls! Straightening treatments aren't going to do you any favours, least of all during the monsoon, since your locks will absorb all the moisture in the air, and your curls will bounce back faster than you think. The only difference, however, would be that they'd be frizzy this time around. So, our only advice — give the smoothing treatments a miss, and focus on your hair health instead.
05. Mask it up
If your ringlets are suffering from monsoon frizziness, the best way to get them to bounce back is to nourish your hair. The Dove Intense Damage Repair Hair Mask contains 1/4th moisturising cream and will hydrate your dry, damaged locks and revive your ringlets while deeply nourishing them. Use it once a week for best results, and don't forget to scrunch up your curls once you've rinsed your hair.
