Rain, rain, go away, the lustrous locks on our heads want to stay sane!
We love the breezy weather and cool showers in the monsoon. But the effects this weather has on our skin and hair? Not so much. The rise in humidity during the monsoon tends to make your mane frizzy and dehydrated, and if you don’t take proper care, you might end up with a serious case of bed hair. Now, we can’t really have that.
So, to end your dilemma and help you out, we have listed five solutions to make sure your hair survives the horrors of humidity this monsoon season.
- 01. Pick an anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner duo
- 02. Use a smoothing serum
- 03. Get your hands on a heat protectant
- 04. Experiment with hair accessories
- 05. Use a microfibre towel
01. Pick an anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner duo
Shampoos and conditioners are essential products in any hair care routine. That’s why it is super important to get your basics right while you tame your wild hair during the monsoon. The Love Beauty & Planet’s Argan Oil and Lavender Aroma Smooth and Serene Shampoo and Conditioner is the answer to all your frizzy hair woes this season. It’s packed with pure Moroccan argan oil, organic coconut oil and plant-based cleansers to give you smooth, frizzy-free tresses. It’s also free of baddies like silicones, parabens, dyes and animal-derived ingredients. Plus, the delicate scent of French lavender will leave your hair smelling delicious.
02. Use a smoothing serum
Now, we all have bad hair days, but what’s that one magic potion that has the power to turn even the frizziest of hairs into a smooth, shiny vision? Hair serums, that’s what! Our go-to is the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Serum. It’s enriched with camellia oil that works as a barrier to keep humidity from entering the hair shaft and causing frizz. Simply smooth a few drops on damp or dry hair, from mid-lengths to tips for silky, smooth and salon-styled hair at home.
03. Get your hands on a heat protectant
If you want your hair to remain frizz-free during the monsoon (duh), we suggest you cut down on heat styling your hair. On days when you do need a helping hand to tame your tresses, don’t forget to spritz on a solid heat protectant spray like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray. It shields your hair from heat up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit while also fighting frizz, boosting shine and adding softness with marula oil.
04. Experiment with hair accessories
To avoid your hair from absorbing all the extra moisture from the air, which leads to frizziness, wear a scarf or cap to prevent your hair from coming in contact with humidity and turning frizzy. You can also use trendy bobby pins and headbands to tame those flyaways while still looking cute.
05. Use a microfibre towel
Okay, you’ve probably heard this a gazillion times, but we’re going to go ahead and say it again anyway — because it’s important. Your hair is more prone to damage when it’s wet. Cotton towels cause friction, leading to hair breakage and frizz. What you need instead is a microfibre towel that not only limits friction and also helps the hair dry quicker.
So, take care of your hair and have a happy monsoon!
