Fight that frizz

For those used to light, airy tresses, a rough and unpredictable monsoon can surely strike havoc. However, it takes only a slight change in your regular hair care routine to ensure beautiful, stylish hair all-year-round. Oiling your hair regularly is one such trick. If you thought hair oiling was a grandmother’s myth to healthy hair, here’s what hairstylist-to-the-stars Savio John Pereira says, “Go in for deep oil massages to condition your hair and scalp during monsoon. Use a hair mask after your shampoo to moisturise hair. Identify your hair type and then use the right shampoo and conditioner for good results. Hair tends to break easily when wet in the rains or even otherwise. So avoid brushing wet hair, instead use a widetoothed comb. Make sure you towel dry your hair thoroughly or semi-dry it with a dryer to remove all the excess moisture in the hair.”

Getting wet and soaked in the showers is a pleasure that few can resist, but think again. Pereira reiterates, “Air pollutants dissolved in rainwater may spell doom for your tresses and make hair bonds weak, thus making your hair dull and frizzy.” So avoid wetting your hair this monsoon. And yes, never ever tie wet hair. You knew that, right?
