The monsoon season has finally hit the western coast of India and boy while you may be enjoying the rains, it's no secret that the humid weather can take a toll on your skin and your hair. While our skin tends to get oilier and stickier, our scalp gets all the more greasy and dehydrated. This leads to frizzy, brittle hair that breaks easily and looks dull and damaged. But if you think there's nothing you can do to fix it, that's where you're wrong. Here are some tips that will help in making your hair look silky smooth.
An old Tee will work
The frizz in your hair will be at level 10 during the monsoons which is why you need to do everything to make sure that you don't add to it. Instead of using a towel to dry your hair, use an old cotton tee. It'll be a lot softer on your hair and will also keep all that frizz away.
Just go with a head massage
Ask your mom to give you a good coconut oil head massage every few days. While the coconut oil will nourish your scalp and hair and will make your hair silky, the champi will help improve blood circulation which will also promote better hair growth.
From roots to the tip
When you wash your hair you need to remember that it will be extremely vulnerable when it's wet. So, make sure that you don't pull or tug too hard or you may end up damaging your locks. Instead, try to detangle your locks and start from the bottom and then go upwards.
Find your best friend in silk
Opt for silk pillowcases and bed sheets since they can be super soft on the skin and help keep the moisture in your hair locked in. Cotton pillowcases can actually absorb the moisture from your hair. So, opt for silk to ensure that the essential oils in your scalp stay intact.
Try to use multiple masks during the monsoon season as this is the time when your skin will be rather erratic. You can detox, exfoliate and moisturise your skin accordingly and all at the same time! You'll have that radiant glow in no time!
Try to opt for facial tools to give your skin a good massage. A jade roller will come in really handy if you're looking for something simple yet effective. Just use it to massage your face all over and you can even use a few drops of your favourite essential oil for best results.
