Hot tips for a ‘fresh’ monsoon season
No chemical treatments:
Avoid hair dryers and other chemical treatments like hair straightening or perming during monsoons. Also, monsoon is the time to give your hair a break from hair gels and oils, as these attract dirt and other pollutants.
Regular hair wash:
Shampoo your hair regularly and use a good conditioner. Avoid tying your hair when wet, since this can make the ends brittle; also, the moisture trapped can cause flakiness and dandruff. Do not comb your hair when wet.
Split ends and frizziness:
Humidity can cause split ends and frizziness to your hair. Apply serum to towel-dried hair. This will add volume and also detangle your hair.
Go for short hairstyles, like bob cut or blunt cut during monsoons. Those with long tresses should tie their hair in a high ponytail or a bun.
Have a proper protein-rich diet along with plenty of fruits and vegetables. Stay hydrated by drinking atleast two litres of water a day to keep your hair healthy even under humid conditions.
