10 monsoon hair care tips for girls

  • Print
Monsoon not only brings smile on everyone’s face but also the complexities related to hair so make sure to opt for right steps to have frizz-free and smooth tresses.

 Some steps to keep your tresses flowing:

* Antibacterial neem oil maybe mixed in equal parts with hydrating oils like almond or coconut to prevent dehydration induced frizz, breakage and split ends. Neem oil is cooling and clears out accumulated sweat and oil, which cause dandruff and itching.

* Oiling your hair once or twice a week in the monsoon season is enough.

* Wavy or curly hair is more prone to frizz, so it is important to use a hydrating shampoo and conditioner. Preferably natural, so that the chemicals do not dry out the ends of your hair.

* Using sulphate-free shampoos is particularly important for already damaged or over treated hair.

* Use styling tools and dryers to manage your hair in moderation to prevent static electricity and damage by excessive heat. It would be more beneficial in the long run if you give your hair a hot towel treatment during the oiling ritual.

* Humid conditions encourage the growth of bacteria and fungi on the scalp, triggering and aggravating scalp concerns such as itchiness, flakiness, excess oiliness and even hair loss. Frequent shampooing with a scalp specific shampoo helps maintain a clean scalp and keeps the micro-organisms at bay. Use a dryer at home to keep the scalp dry. In-salon scalp Rituals, once in 15 days is recommended in case of aggravated scalp concerns.

* One must use scalp concern specific shampoos and masques or anti-frizz/disciplining ranges in case of frizz.

* In order to prevent hair fall, one must maintain a clean and dry scalp. Wash your hair in case it gets wet in the rain. Use a scalp specific shampoo and masque to ensure a healthy scalp. It is important to oil your scalp and hair to balance frequent washing and to maintain the moisture in your hair.

* Colour protecting masques give the hair maximum radiance. One can blend an oil into the masque to enhance the shine. For glossy hair, it is recommended to use a serum/oil.
