- Wash thrice a week
- Use an anti-bacterial shampoo
- Look for volume-enhancing hair care ingredients

Wash thrice a week
Your scalp secretes more oil during monsoon which makes your hair look oily and flat at the roots. The only way to deal with this problem is by washing your hair at adequate intervals. We do not recommend washing your hair every other day but make it a habit to do it at least thrice a week with hair products that work for your hair type.
Use an anti-bacterial shampoo
Bacterial and fungal infections are common during the rainy months. So make sure you invest in an anti-bacterial shampoo infused with an ingredient like tea tree oil or menthol that deep cleanses the scalp by getting rid of grime and grease, while also fighting infections.
Look for volume-enhancing hair care ingredients
Limp, dry locks are another annoyance the monsoon brings us, and finding volume-enhancing, shine-boosting hair care ingredients isn't easy. Luckily, we've found the one hair ingredient that actually works — coconut water. Look for coconut water in your hair products, and get ready to nourish your tresses with some instant hydration. The ingredient will ensure you get voluminous, shiny hair to brave the monsoon frizz and humidity.
Don’t skip conditioner
Frizzy hair is a common problem during monsoon, therefore it is important to keep the moisture in your mane intact by applying the conditioner after each wash. This will keep frizzy hair at bay and make your mane smooth and soft.
Avoid rubbing hair harshly
Monsoon or not, rubbing your hair harshly with a towel is a strict no-no. It increases frizz and causes hair breakage. Lightly dab your hair with a cotton towel when it’s wet instead of rubbing to avoid friction, breakage and unnecessary frizz.
Use a wide tooth comb
The quality of your hair brush and comb are equally responsible for how your hair looks and behaves. Use a wide tooth comb, preferably a wooden one to remove tangles and knots from your hair, this prevents breakage and also reduces frizz. Avoid combing your hair when it is wet.
