During monsoons, it is easy to get frizzy hair, hair fall and fungal infections in hair. Back to the time when I was running a salon, almost every client of mine had queries regarding hair problems especially during this season.
They were greatly benefitted by the tips that I shared with them. I am sharing here those views and tips that helped my clients deal with frizzy hair in monsoons.
Applying hair oil before every wash becomes a must in this season. Try to apply oil at least once a week. You can apply any oil of your choice. For my personal use, I used to mix mustard oil, coconut oil and amla oil in equal quantities. I used to make a bottle of this and keep it for regular use. Another very beneficial hair oil is Bhringraj oil. It is an ayurvedic oil and prevents hair fall.
2. Hair Brushing
Use a good hair brush and dry your hair naturally after wash. Avoid using hair dryer in this season. Detangle the hair with a zee comb or with fingers very gently. Use a big soft brush to smoothen your tresses.
If oiling is not your choice, then go in for conditioners. A good variety of conditioners are available in the market to suit your hair type. It is always advisable to buy from a known brand. While applying hair conditioners, take care of using it in right quantity and rinse it well after use to avoid your hair look oily.
