Don’t you just hate it when the weather is hot, humid, and muggy? Well that’s Chennai for you during the monsoon. During these months, it is essential to put in more effort to maintain your hair. Here are some tips to deal with the excessive humidity:

1. Moisturize

Moisturize your hair regularly by conditioning your hair at least 3 times a week. Conditioning helps reduce frizz and smoothens your hair.

2. Cold Water

Use cold water to wash off your conditioner instead of hot water – cold water causes the cuticles to contract, thus maintaining the shine in your hair.

3. No Blow Drying

Blow drying your hair causes a loss of moisture and you need all the moisture you can get! Allow hair to air-dry instead.

4. Oil

Oil your hair more using olive oil, coconut oil, or argon oil. Oiling your hair helps boost the moisture and we all know how important moisturizing is!

5. Avoid damp hair

It is always fun to play in the rains – but you might actually be paving the way for hairfall. Stay dry and always carry an umbrella.

6. Proteins

Don’t forget to eat protein-rich food like eggs, yogurt, fish, nuts, leafy vegetables, and legumes to strengthen and nourish your hair from within.

7. Not too tight

Avoid tying your hair up in tight ponytails or buns, especially when wet. This makes the hair brittle and more prone to breakage

8. Serum

Try using an anti-frizz serum or a natural serum like castor oil to tame those flyaway hairs. Serum also helps in strengthening and adds that extra shine!

9. Comb

This is something that you might already be familiar with. Use a wide-toothed comb to detangle your hair – this helps in reducing the strain on hair and prevents breakage and hairloss
