We all surely love the rainfall and cloudy season amidst the sun beaming down on us but we surely don’t love the effects that it brings along with it. If monsoon season could be described with one word then it would be “humidity”.
The amount of moisture and water in the air takes up a boost which causes our hair to get frizzy and oily at a very rapid speed than normal. Even people with straight hair have to deal with frizz and static hair during this season. Truly there’s no running away for anyone during this time of the year.
But, we’re here with a few ways you can control the effects and cause them not to be so adverse while also side by side keeping your hair healthy and shiny.
Monsoon Season Hair Care Secrets
Always remember to give your hair the right prep and nourishment before the monsoon season starts. Keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water because it is the dehydrated hair that is more prone to frizz and static.
Use some hair masks that are rich with protein and have a thicker consistency so that your hair feeds up on all the necessary nutrients that it needs.
If you can’t find a suitable mask for yourself at stores, which you most likely will, or if you like to keep it natural then the most basic way of getting protein to your hair at home is to create a yogurt and egg mask and apply it to your hair and leave on for 15-20 minutes. This will help your hair load up on protein and moisture.
It is critical to choose the right product during this season. Monsoon season fills the air with humidity so you need to choose a shampoo that will deep cleanse your hair and has the minimum amount of oil-based ingredients.
This will help your hair with remaining fresher for longer because oily ingredients tend to make you sweat more during this time which can leave a foul odor on your scalp. Using deep cleansing shampoo will also help you cut on your showers which otherwise you will have to wash your hair every day to keep it from getting oily within hours. Also, always remember to finish your showers with conditioners or heat protectants to keep your hair from frizzing or getting static.
Minimize the damage
This includes dying your hair, use of heat and excess washing, etc. this can all leave your hair looking damaged and dull. Dye tends to damage your hair leaving it lifeless, dull, and dehydrated so try your best to skip on dying for a month or two.
If you really have to dye then go for oil-based and ammonia-free dyes to minimize the damage. Heat styling your hair takes away all the moisture from your hair leaving it dehydrated and ultimately will make it frizz and get static. Excessive washing can also swoop away all the moisture from your hair.
Try to cut on that to reduce frizz and to keep the moisture in your hair locked. Give dry shampoo a try which will not only cut down on your hair washes but will also help your hair look voluminous amidst this humid weather which can get your hair oily faster.
