Monsoons are all about romantic weather, long drives, and unlimited cups of tea. But there is one thing that we absolutely hate about this weather – humidity. It makes hair so dull, unmanageable, and frizzy. How to keep hair frizz free? Go ahead and read the post.
How to keep hair frizz free? Read on.
1. Hair packs for frizzy hair
Using home remedies to keep the frizz at bay is an easy and affordable solution. Given below are 2 easy DIY options to keep your hair frizz free.
- Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse
Dilute 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar in 2 cups water.
Wash your hair normally with a shampoo and then rinse them with diluted apple cider solution. Allow it to sit in your hair for 5 minutes before you finish off by using a conditioner.
- Banana and Honey Hair Pack
Blend 1 ripe banana + 2 tsp honey + 1/3 cup almond or coconut oil to form a smooth paste. Apply all over your scalp and leave it for 20 – 25 minutes. Wash off with a mild shampoo.
Both honey and banana are great to moisturize your hair and prevent them from damage. You can use this hair pack once a week.
2. Choose the right shampoo and conditioner
Opt for sulphate free, glycerin rich shampoos in this season. Sulphates strip off the moisture from your hair causing them to soak up the humidity and becoming frizzy, whereas glycerin moisturizes your hair from deep within. Also remember to choose alcohol free products.
Don’t forget to condition your hair every time you shampoo. Make sure to concentrate on the tips. You can also use leave-in conditioners. They work very well especially for curly and extremely frizzy hair.
3. Hot Oil Hair Treatment
Now you know why mom and grandma always keep saying, “oil your hair”. A hot oil massage can work wonders to keep your hair hydrated and moisturized.
You can use any oil for the treatment – coconut oil, olive oil, almond oil, or argan oil.
- Argan oil – Helps treat damage, prevents splitting, and makes hair manageable.
- Coconut oil – Nourishes your hair from deep within.
- Almond oil – Rich in Vitamin E, it helps combat damage from free radicals.
- Olive oil – Natural conditioner, also it is lightweight so doesn’t weigh your hair down.
Heat up any oil of your choice and massage it well on your scalp. Wrap your hair in a hot towel. Allow it to cool to room temperature, before you wash off your hair with a mild shampoo. Doing this twice or thrice a month will deeply condition your hair, increase the elasticity of your hair, and give them a natural sheen.
4. To brush or not to brush
Brushing can disrupt hair cuticles leading to breaking and damage. Make sure you don’t brush your hair when it is dry. Instead finger combing with wet fingers (using water, leave-in conditioner, or hair serum) will help tame the fizz.
It is also important to choose the right kind of hair brush. For medium length to long length hair – medium round brush works best, while for short length hair, small round brush is the best.
We recommend you invest in a tangle teezer to easily detangle your dry frizzy hair.
5. Minimum use of heat tools
Whether it is a flat iron, blow dryer, or a curler, avoid using heat styling tools in this humid weather. Heat damages your dry frizzy hair even more.
If you have to urgently use heat styling tools make sure to use a heat protection mist or a protective leave-in conditioner.
