Come monsoon and it’s crazy time for your hair.
They behave weirdly, they are out of place no matter how much product you use–you’d think they are having mood swings! So here are a few tips for you to combat monsoon hair problems!
Avoid REALLY hot showers
There’s nothing more that I enjoy more than a hot shower but using hot water on your hair can affect the cuticles, cause frizz and dryness too. Better to mix it up and do the deed with lukewarm water. Rinse off conditioner with cold water. You end up sealing the hair cuticles.
No conditioner on the scalp
Conditioners, even serums for that matter, and hair masques tend to clog your scalp. So when you’re done shampooing, use a conditioner on the length of your hair. Same goes for a hair spa masque or a serum.
Avoid very tight hairstyles
Our moms were totally right in saying that we should tie our hair if we’re facing hairfall, but having said that, tight buns or 5 strand braids can put strain on your already weakened strands. So tie your hair with an elastic band into a ponytail. Make a loose bun from time to time without giving yourself a headache–thank god messy hair is still a trend![/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1344″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]
Keep up your immunity and hydrate
Getting drenched in the rain can also get with it allergies and infections. So keep your immunity up. The more hydrated your body is, the better your body’s defense it. Plus, thanks to the humidity, there is excessive loss of salts and fluids from the body. Make up for it by drinking water, lemonade, juices, coconut water, green tea, etc.
Colour with care
A lot of us get an itchy or irritated scalp when we colour our strands. And if you’re planning to get your streaks, highlights or global colour, speak to your colourist in advance. There are a lot of products that can help maintain the pH balance of your hair and reduce irritation usually caused by ammonia. Another DIY that works is adding a few packets of artificial sweetener to neutralize the effects of hair dye on an itchy scalp.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1345″ alignment=”center” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”” img_link_target=”_self” img_size=”full”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
