One of the biggest beauty woe monsoon brings with it is dry, frizzy and (forever) unmanageable hair. No matter how much time you spend styling your hair in the morning, a few drops of rain water and a couple of hours later, you’ll have a lion’s mane to deal with. Ugh!
If this sounds like a familiar problem, then it’s time to put an end to this issue once and for all. Read on for some really helpful tips to deal with the problem of monsoon humidity and its terrible effects on your hair by following these simple hair care tips…
- Moisturise your strands
- Switch to a silk pillowcase
- Opt for an old cotton tee to dry your hair
- Use the right kind of hair products
Moisturise your strands
During the humid monsoon months, simply conditioning your hair after each hair wash isn’t enough. Why? Because your hair tends to become dry and frizzy more often. Therefore, pamper your strands with moisturising treatments such as hair masks, hot oil massages and leave-in conditioners to keep them soft and shiny throughout the season.
Switch to a silk pillowcase
During the rainy season, your hair undergoes a lot of stress, due to constant exposure to environmental elements, which leads to frizz and breakage. Don’t aggravate this issue by sleeping on a cotton pillowcase; instead, invest in a good quality satin pillowcase today. This will prevent further frizz and breakage due to the friction caused by tossing and turning while asleep.
Opt for an old cotton tee to dry your hair
One of the best ways to trap moisture in your hair and prevent frizzy hair is to skip rubbing your hair with a towel and instead switching to an old cotton tee. This prevents unnecessary hair static and keeps your hair looking frizz-free once it’s completely dry.
Use the right kind of hair products
When stepping out, it is important to protect your strands not just against the excessive monsoon humidity, but also against other environmental factors that worsen frizz. You must start using products such as smoothening serums and creams to not just prevent frizz, but also create a protective layer over your hair to keep it smooth and soft.
