When Your Hair Doesn’t Respond Well to Humidity

Rains bring on humidity, which turns your gorgeous tresses into a kinky, puffed up ball sitting on top of your head. Sometimes the condition is so bad that you feel like chopping your locks off. A hundreds of products may assure protection, but none of them work universally, and going for trial-and-error is even more dangerous. So, rather than letting something take a toll on your hair, you could adopt some hair care measures that work for every kind of hair during monsoons. Read your way down to find easy tips to protect your hair from humidity.

Use Good Shampoos

Your hair endures a lot of heat when you expose it to flat iron and dryers. It is best to invest in a really good shampoo and start your hair-care routine in the shower itself. You can buy salon shampoos, which contain more oils, vitamins and minerals and less sulphate. If you have a preference, you can buy any kind of shampoo that fits your budget and suits your hair as long as you are sure that it is doing your hair justice.

Leave In Conditioners

Leave-in conditioners are touted for their work against humidity. Because the product stays on your hair throughout the day, it provides a shield against external temperature and humidity and helps lock in your hair’s moisture. When your hair isn’t stripped of its nourishment, a head of frizz is less likely.

Silicone Balm

If you blow dry your hair, hair smoothening creams and balms come in really handy. These balms protect your hair from the heat and reduce frizz that is a sure aftermath of blow drying on a humid day. The balm also protects and seals in the moisture in your hair, so your hair will develop fewer frizzes.

Cold Splash

Cold water is great to close up the scalp pores and the seal hair cuticles. You can easily spray some cold water after washing your hair. So the atmospheric moisture will not interfere with your hairstyle.

Keep It Natural

Keeping the frizz under control itself calls for a number of product and hair styling (or taming) measures. So do yourself a favour and don’t pile on extra work by trying to alter the texture of your hair. If you have straight hair, let it be; and the same goes for curly hair. Maybe this one season you can own who you are (hair-wise) and just run with it. Using more products can only cause unwanted damage to your hair.

Keep It Long

Many of us, tired of the frizz and dried out hair, chop off our hair. But this is not as effective as we think it is. Just think about it; which type of hair gets frizzy and puffy quickly? Short, less volume hair or long hair? Due to sheer weight, long hair tends to be less bushy than shorter hair in the face of humidity.

Tie Them Up

If you have lush, long hair, this is definitely the last resort. But if you have not been able to put on all the precautionary balms and moisturizers on your hair, you can tie up your hair in a clip. Even if your tresses go astray, they will at least not fly into your mouth when they are tied. It is a difficult task to stay chic in a humid climate, but you can wear your hair-ties in style.
