Along with a drop in the torturing temperature, monsoon brings a great deal of trouble for everyone to take care of. Our skin and hair during monsoon act up and there’s hardly any single product that we can rely upon to tame the same.
Does your blow or air-dried, straightened, curled or styled hair fume up or lay flat or start shedding just after a few minutes out in the open? Here are a few tips that will help you stray away from the problem this time.
- A right antibacterial blend of oil is a great way to keep the monsoon bacteria and frizz at bay during monsoon. Try oiling your hair with coconut oil mixed with a few drops of neem oil. This also prevents air breakage and hair fall apart from hydrating and detoxifying the scalp.
- Opt for sulphate-free and chemical-free, mild shampoos to retain the natural moisture and pH balance of the scalp. This reduces the chances of breakage and split ends drastically.
- Shampoo your hair as much as you need. Monsoon is a season of bacteria that leads to the production of excessive sebum as well as sweat, leaving the scalp more prone to infections and problems. Cleansing the scalp often helps prevent the problem.
- Avoid using styling products during monsoon and substitute them with naturally moisturising hair masks to condition and tame your hair effectively.
- Tie your hair in a bun, ponytail or braid. These hairstyles are ideal for monsoon and leave the hair secure from the humid weather.
- Condition the hair deeply. The hair loses its sheen and moisture and lies open to damage during monsoon. Conditioners moisturise the tresses and save them from getting frizzy and dry.
- Restrict using heat styling tools like blow dryers, straighteners, curling tongs et cetera as they may style the hair well while you are indoors, but they weaken the hair shaft and ends, leaving them likely to get damaged easily.
- Switch from a towel to a soft cotton cloth. Drying the hair with towel damages the hair and cuticles as it is usually coarse or harsh. Use a cotton cloth or an old cotton t-shirt to gently squeeze out the excess water and dry the hair.
