While monsoon brings with it a refreshing change from the summer heat, it can actually be your hair’s worst enemy. From creating a frizzy mess to making your hair lose moisture and shine, monsoon has the power to bring your hair health down drastically.

If you are looking to get rid of an oily, itchy scalp and dry, rough locks, then you’ve come to the right place! With the monsoon here in full swing, we’ve got you covered with hair care tips that are sure to keep your hair and scalp in healthy condition.

Embrace the natural texture of your hair as much as possible, especially during the rainy months. Excessive use of heat-styling tools can cause frizz in your mane thereby bringing your hair game down drastically. On days when you just need to succumb to some serious hairstyling, then make sure to prep your hair with a heat-protectant spray before you go in with your curling irons and tongs. We suggest you get your hands on the Toni&Guy 5.0 Fluid Oz Prep Heat Protection Mist that conditions hair and helps protect it against heat damage and gives a smooth, soft finish to your hairstyle.

Oil massage is bae

Monsoons tend to make your scalp greasy, however, it still requires moisture and nourishment. Therefore, pamper your scalp with an oil massage regularly even during monsoon. You can mix coconut oil with any other essential oil, heat it and massage your scalp with the solution. For better results, leave the oil overnight so that it gets absorbed completely. Rinse next morning with a mild shampoo followed by a conditioner. Doing so twice a week will leave you with silky hair and a healthy scalp.

Keep a dry shampoo handy especially in the monsoon season; it can save you from a greasy, sweaty scalp instantly. For your on-the-go busy lifestyles, a dry shampoo can be a blessing. Try the ROCKAHOLIC by Tigi DIRTY SECRET DRY SHAMPOO to revamp your hair within seconds. It is just perfect to refresh second or third-day hair and in-between washes without having to use water.

Damp hair is a strict no-no

Damp hair is a storehouse for bacteria that lead to infections and then hair concerns. Therefore, never tie your hair when it is wet or even damp. Dampness also leads to an itchy scalp and hair breakage—both concerns that are quite common in the monsoon season. To prevent further hair damage, it’s best to dry your hair naturally with a bath towel and avoid rubbing your scalp vigorously with the towel as that can turn your mane into a frizzy mess.

Natural hair masks to the rescue
 

Natural hair masks to the rescue

Apart from the regular washing and oiling, your hair needs some extra TLC every now and then. That’s when hair masks infused with natural ingredients come to the rescue. Either go for a honey and yoghurt mask to nourish and hydrate your mane or opt for a fenugreek seed hair mask to keep dandruff and scalp infections at bay.
