Bringing relief from the sweltering heat, there’s no denying that the monsoon season is eagerly awaited by most of us. From offering scenic views to evenings that are unmissable, there’s a lot to like about the season. However, there’s one thing that gets adversely affected during this time and that’s our hair. Since frizzy hair, dandruff, and hair fall become common problems, it takes an extra effort to maintain the shine and texture of the hair in monsoon season.

So, with the monsoon arrival, here are a few tips and tricks to help you keep your mane both frizz-free and smooth:

1. Alter your shampoo habits

If you are someone who shampoos your hair every single day, there are chances that your scalp will become damaged and dry. Moreover, avoid using hot or even warm water to shampoo your hair as it can rob your scalp of its natural oils. Make sure to use shampoo only twice or thrice a week, and opt for cold showers instead of warm ones. You can also try a frizz-free shampoo to tame your hair.

2. Say hello to conditioners

Not just changing your shampoo habits, making sure that you condition your hair post that shampoo ritual is a must. Using a conditioner regularly makes sure that your unwanted frizz is put away, thanks to its burst of necessary moisture. When you use a condition, make sure to keep it on for at least 3-5 minutes before washing it off.

3. Use a soft towel

Do not aggressively dry Your hair with a towel once you step out of the shower. It not only makes your hair dry and frizzy but also keeps your hair untamed in the longer run. So, instead of an abrasive bathing towel, use a cotton towel for drying your hair, preferably one with microfibre technology.

4. Oil your hair weekly
