Monsoons are here, finally! The platter-platter sound of raindrops n the windowsill and the smell of moist earth when it fills the nostrils is beyond explanation. Everyone welcomes monsoons after months of hot air and sweat, and it relieves the body, but the extra care to be taken for the skin and hair becomes a tedious task. Haircare during monsoons is a nightmare for people as the hair becomes flat after styling, and this is more if you have frizzy hair. Frizzy hair looks beautiful only when maintained and cared for properly, and monsoons make you put in the extra effort to get your frizzy hair in place. With every problem comes a solution. Let’s learn tips to tame your frizzy hair during the monsoon season from our experts at Kosmoderma Skin, Hair and Body Clinics.

Why Is Frizzy Hair Difficult to Maintain During Monsoon?

Managing your hair is an uphill task and is time-consuming when coupled with hair being frizzy. Regularly following a good hair routine is the key to having shiny and strong hair. During different seasons, there are ways to manage your hair so that it does now lose its lustre, but it becomes difficult during monsoons. When there are rains, humidity accompanies it later. The humid air carries with it more water molecules when compared to dry air, and this causes your hair strands to form an increased number of hydrogen bonds. These bonds cause your styled hair to resume its initial curled or frizzy state. Continued humidity makes your hair drier, making the frizzy hair unmanageable.

How to Manage Frizzy Hair During Monsoons?

A bad hair day can ruin your plans- but do not worry. Our experts at Kosmoderma have enlisted a few tips to tame your frizzy hair during monsoon to make your life easier.

1. Avoid getting wet in the rains

The first rain of the season may entice you to step out and get wet, but in doing so, your hair gets wet too. When your frizzy hair gets wet, it becomes drier and tends to lose all the moisture- the result is more curled-up entangled locks which are difficult to detangle. Getting your hair wet in the rain also can lead to scalp infection or dandruff, which may further damage the hair. So, to avoid your frizzy hair to become worse, avoid getting wet in the rain.

2. Tie your hair

Everyone has heard the proverb, “ Let down your hair and relax!”- this does not hold true for the monsoon season. Monsoons are not the season to let your hair down but the opposite. Dermatologists recommend tying up your hair into a braid or ponytail, as this prevents moisture and humidity from entering your hair and maintains your hair texture during monsoons.

3. Do not wash your hair too frequently

We all have the habit of washing our hair frequently- some people with short hair wash them daily. If you are endowed with frizzy hair, do not wash your hair more than twice a week during monsoons as washing more may damage the hair, leaving the room open for frizzy hair to become frizzier. Do not use hot water to wash your hair as it can increase the frizz. Instead of a hot shower, use lukewarm water to wash your hair and the last rinse should be of cold water, which closes the cuticles of the hair, taming the frizzy hair.

4. Avoid hot showers

After a tiring day at work, you first want to get into a hot shower- Stop right there. Resist the temptation or wear a shower cap before entering a hot shower during monsoon, as hot water can dry the scalp and damage your hair locks. During monsoon, the hair becomes frizzy, and the dehydrated scalp from the hot shower becomes icing on the cake for itching and irritation on the scalp to develop. The more you touch your hair to itch, the frizzier it gets; hence, to avoid these, wear a shower cap if you want hot shower baths in monsoons.

5. Use a microfibre towel to dry your hair

Drying your hair should be done cautiously during monsoons, especially when you have frizzy hair. Avoid using cotton towels to dry your strands, as cotton fabric, when it comes in contact with wet locks can cause friction that leads to the breaking of hair and increased frizziness. Using microfibre fabric causes the hair to dry faster and decreases the chances of breakage of hair - also decreases the frizz.

6. Do not oil your hair excessively

We always habitually oil our hair twice a week and let the hair and scalp soak in the oil before going for a head wash. This practice should be performed less frequently in the monsoon season as oiling frequently may clog the pores on the scalp, and every time you oil, you will be washing your hair- the result- damage to the hair and an increase in frizziness.

7. Do not blow-dry your hair

It is in our habit that after a head wash, we blow dry our hair for styling but is is a complete NO in the monsoon season. You should not blow dry or iron your hair as the moisture in your strands will be sucked out, and the little hairs will stand up straight from the scalp, making them look like a tower. After a head wash, you can let your hair dry naturally to avoid frizz.

8. Avoid any chemicals on your hair

Hair sprays, gels, and creams to style the hair should be avoided in monsoon as they have chemicals that can lead to excessive frizz and breakage. You can use homemade hair products which will be beneficial to your hair.

9. Use a wooden comb

Selecting a comb for your hair is also important, as a hard comb can damage your scalp and hair and cause wounds on the scalp. For frizzy hair in the monsoon season, a wooden comb is recommended by dermatologists as it is gentle on the hair, and the hair detangles easily when compared to a plastic comb which generates static electricity that can cause frizz in the hair and also is harsher on the scalp. Wood, a bad conductor of electricity, makes your hair frizz-free in monsoons.

10. Use a Hair Serum

A hair serum in the monsoons can help smooth out the tangled locks by adding shine to the hair. Apply hair serum from mid-hair to the tip and keep your hair frizz-free throughout the day.
