Monsoon frizzy hair? Try these tips for managing hair in humid weather

Applying hair serum to dry hair can help reduce frizz

The weather affects us in different ways. Monsoon weather can make a person prone to certain infections, digestion problems, acne, frizzy hair, etc. These health problems can be prevented and treated with proper care.

Monsoon weather increases the humidity of the air. An increase in humidity can make a person prone to many hair-related issues. One of the most common hair problems in the summer is frizzy hair. Monsoon frizzy hair can be difficult to manage and can leave your hair looking unhealthy, messy and dry.

Here are 10 tips that will help you manage frizzy hair this summer:

1. Avoid hot water

Washing your hair in hot water can damage hair follicles. Washing hair in cold water helps make it smoother and easier to comb. During winters, you can shower in slightly lukewarm water, but be sure to rinse your hair with cool water for at least a minute before getting out of the shower.

2. Tie your hair up

The best way to avoid frizz is to keep humidity and humidity out of your hair. Try hairstyles such as buns, plaids, etc. can help maintain their texture.

3. Change your products in the shower

Many people change their hair care routine seasonally, but continue to use the same shampoo and conditioner all year round. However, opt for a nourishing and smoothing shampoo and conditioner.

4. Use a microfiber towel

A microfiber towel helps dry our hair without causing much damage. Microfiber towels are useful for absorbing excess material and may not be harsh on our hair strands. Curly, rough, dry and damaged hair often retains more water.

5. Try a leave-in conditioner

A leave-in conditioner, as the name suggests, is a conditioner that is applied after showering. This product is applied after shampooing and does not need to be rinsed out. Leave-in conditioners help retain moisture in the hair, making it look more cared for and nourished.

6. Use hair serum

Hair serum is recommended for anyone with dry hair. Dry hair is more prone to frizz during the monsoon season. We encourage you to apply a hair serum daily regardless of the season. Serums help nourish our hair and make it smoother.

7. Try hair oils and butter

Hair oils and butter are another great way to control frizzy hair. However, hair oils and hair butter can most of the time reduce the volume of our hair, in terms of appearance. Therefore, you may want to avoid them if you have low volume or straight hair.

8. Always use a thermal protector

Heat styling your hair without using heat protectant can cause irreversible damage to your hair. Heat protectants help create a barrier on our hair and reduce heat damage. Direct heat can damage hair follicles and make them more messy and frizzy.

9. Styling gel

Similar to hair oils and hair butter, hair gels can be ideal for people with voluminous, curly, wavy and textured hair. A gel is known to make hair smooth and thin.

10. Use anti-humidity products

Humidity control products can be a great addition to the monsoon hair care routine. As the name suggests, humidity control products are very effective in calming frizzy hair and making your hair look more balanced. Although some moisture wicking products such as sprays may contain alcohol. Hair products that contain alcohol can be too harmful for the long-term health of your hair. Therefore, try to use them occasionally and not regularly.

In conclusion, modifying your hair care routine according to the weather can help improve your health. Changing your hair care routine as the weather changes can also help you manage your hair better.
