Hair Care in the Summer and Monsoons

Every summer, your hair will grow limp. Most likely, it’ll become ultra-frizzy or the colors in your hair will start to turn brassy. Don’t worry; you’re facing the same problems that most people encounter during summer. Thankfully, there are a number of products available in the market that can help you combat summer hair complaint.

Here’s how you can fix hair in the summer:

1. Humidity can affect hair in a bad way in the summer making your hair wilt. Apply some serum to towel dried hair. This will add volume and also detangle hair.

2. If you don’t have long hair, tie it in a pony tail or a small bun.

3. Color your hair! This pumps up the hair strands and adds volume to your hair.

4. Make sure you take care of your hair depending on the kind of places that you plan to hang out. If you’re heading to the beach, opt for a good salt spray and then tie hair. If you want to add some more body, sprinkle a dry shampoo (or baby powder) at the crown and roots. It soaks up moisture.

Here is how you can keep the frizz out of your hair:

1. Moisturize hair with a deep conditioning shampoo once a week.

2. When you wash your hair, let it air dry.

3. To tame the friziness, opt for a smoothing serum which will envelope your hair and control the frizz and make it smoother.

The sun, chlorine and salt water can also wreck havoc on hair color. Here’s how to keep the damage in control:

1. Wear a hat or bandanna in the sun.

2. Before swimming, rinse hair with tap water. This will cut down on salt and chlorine absorption.
While talking about the monsoons and hair care, make sure you have a balanced routine to deal with monsoon hair blues. Here’s how you can keep hair well groomed.

If you get caught under a cloudburst make sure you wash your hair with a shampoo and lightly conditioner when you get back home.

Different kinds of hair react differently to different conditions. Normal to oily hair tends to get greasy during the monsoons, while dry hair tends to frizz. Beat the greasiness by washing your tresses every few days with a daily use or mild shampoo.

To combat frizziness you can wash and condition your hair as always and then follow up with some gentle blow drying and end with some anti-frizz serum.

Avoid using hair styling products such as mousse, hair gels and wax. These clump up and become ineffective in contact with moisture laden air. Worse still they can become dust magnets in a storm, working hair into a dry, frizzy, tangled mess.
