A slight drizzle or a heavy downpour - the monsoons can make your hair curl, quite literally. Although the rains affect all hair types, the curly ones tend to get the frizziest. Even though the wet look looks great on curly hair, the humidity in the air adds unnecessary volume which can be unmanageable. This is probably when you’ll be rushing to the salon every week and stocking up on shampoos and hair masks to keep the frizziness at bay. But instead of opting for these methods that might burn a hole in your pocket, switch to this pocket-friendly yet effective hair care tips to manage curly hair in the rainy season. Take a look!
1. Stick To Your Tried And Tested Shampoo
If you’ve been using a certain brand of shampoo that’s working well for you then don’t switch to anything else in the monsoon. Wash your hair twice or thrice a week to keep your scalp clean. If you face a dandruff issue and your scalp feels itchy or flaky, switch to a shampoo that has ketoconazole in it.
2. Don’t Skip On Conditioning Your Hair
3. Use Less Of Oil And Serum
Yes, your frizzy curls might tempt you to grab that bottle of oil-based serum but stay away from using it especially during monsoons. Instead, buy yourself a gel-based smoothening serum that will work wonders on your frizzy hair.
4. Don’t Opt For Any Hair Treatments
If you’re planning to get your hair smoothened or straightened, monsoon is probably the worst season to do so. There’s a very good chance that your hair will attract moisture no matter how much care you take and the waves will appear sooner than you think. Either get the smoothening treatment done before or after the rains.
5. Say No To Bleach
Adding highlights or getting your hair coloured a natural shade is still alright. But if you’re thinking of colouring your hair a completely different colour, you will have get your hair bleached or put your hair through some harsh chemical treatments - avoid it!
