Monsoon is an amazing time to sit at home and sip some hot chocolate and munch on snacks! Sadly, your skin and hair do not enjoy this weather so much. All the humidity, combined with the toxic rain water can wreak havoc on your hair, making it frizzy and prone to damage.
However, you can keep all these monsoon hair woes at bay and maintain hair health by learning a few easy hair hacks. Follow these tips to ensure you have a hassle-free monsoon!
- Wash the hair thrice a week
- Use anti-bacterial shampoo
- Don’t skip conditioner
- Avoid rubbing hair with towel
- Use a wide tooth comb
Wash the hair 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 frequently. We do not recommend cleansing your hair everyday, but make it a habit to do so at least thrice a week.
Use anti-bacterial shampoo
Bacterial and fungal infections are common during the rainy months. Invest in a detox shampoo such as the Tresemme Botanique Detox & Restore Shampoo with Ginseng and Neem; it deep cleanses your scalp by getting rid of grime and grease and fights scalp infections too. It also helps improve scalp health and promotes hair growth.
Don’t skip conditioner
Frizzy hair is a common problem during monsoon; therefore, it is essential to moisturise your strands by applying conditioner on the hair shaft. This will keep frizziness at bay and make your mane smooth and soft. Ideally, use a conditioner from the same brand/range as your shampoo for best results.
Avoid rubbing hair with towel
Monsoon or not, rubbing your hair with a towel is a strict no-no. It increases frizz and causes hair breakage. When your hair is wet, it is weak at the roots and rubbing it will cause you to lose more strands. Gently dab your hair with a cotton towel or cotton t-shirt when it’s wet to avoid friction 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 as well as reduces frizz. Avoid combing your hair when it is wet.
