Humidity is a major contributing factor during the monsoon season that lead to frizzy hair for most of us. Arm yourself with a serum and hair masque to keep frizziness at bay, say experts.
Use serum: To ensure hair is frizz-free and manageable, avoid straightening your hair often. Wash your hair from roots to tips with a good shampoo followed by a conditioner and apply a serum to the moist hair, especially if your hair is frizzy. Also, you can use a hair masque which helps cutting frizz and gives your hair a good shine.
Get a regular trim: If you have middle-length to long hair, you will dread monsoon. A regular hair trim is a must to keep the hair healthy in monsoon. Or, you can also go for a stylish hair cut.
Hairdos you can try: Easy hairstyles like side braided pony tail, a top knot, sleek back low pony, fishtails, ponytails and plaited buns work well.
Hair oil: Oil your hair with warm coconut oil followed by shampoo and conditioner. Avoid putting too much spray as it aggravates the problem. Don't keep oil overnight. Wash hair three times a week.
Right tool: Avoid leaving long hair open as it looks messy and frizzy. A wide-tooth comb to de-tangle hair is recommended. Too much of experimenting with hair colour should be avoided.
Right diet: Diet plays a very important role in hair care as it helps in protecting and strengthening the hair follicles. Do not eat oily and spicy food.
