Monsoon is an awesome time to relax and drink some hot tea at home and eat on pakodas!
Sadly, this environment is not so good for your skin and hair.
All the moisture, in conjunction with the harmful rainwater, will create havoc on your hair, leaving it frizzy and prone to damage.
However, by practicing a few simple beauty tricks, you can hold all those monsoon beauty problems at bay and preserve hair quality.
Hair Spa Treatment with Bananas
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- A pot of hot boiled water for steam
- The first step is to mash the banana in the processor until it absolutely lumps free
- Add olive oil to mashed bananas and set aside the mixture
- Put a pot of hot water on the table now, lean over it, cover your hair and the pot with a towel and steam your hair for about 10 minutes
- Remove the towel and allow the steam to settle for another 10 minutes
- Stop the steam treatment and wait for the steam to set in your hair and scalp, and apply the banana and olive oil mask to your hair
- Leave the mask on for about 30 minutes to an hour.
- Clean the hair with a gentle shampoo and cold water
- Use this one to twice a week.
Bananas are a perfect way to enhance the quality of your hair and to keep it clean since they are high in potassium, natural oils, and vitamins.
It also increases the elasticity of the hair by avoiding hair breakage and split ends.
This treatment can be used particularly if you have hair that’s dry and damaged during monsoons.
Wash Your hair 3 times in a week
Your scalp tends to secrete more oil than usual during monsoon, which makes our hair look oily and flat at the roots.
The best way to solve this issue is by constantly washing your hair.
We will not prescribe that you shampoo your hair on a regular basis but make it a routine to do so at least three days a week.
Remember to use only gentle sulfate-free shampoo to wash your hair.
Frizzy hair during monsoon is a popular problem; hence, moisturizing the strands by adding conditioner to the hair shaft is important.
That will keep your mane frizzy at bay and make it comfortable and smooth.
For better performance, preferably using a conditioner with the same brand/range as your shampoo.
Avoid rubbing hair with a towel
Use a t-shirt OR microfiber towel instead of a regular towel
we all know our hair is most fragile when wet, and making the wrong choice while your hair’s damp will seriously affect your hair.
That’s why it’s so important to pick the correct fabric to dry your wet hair.
Using the wrong fabric that is too rough or abrasive can break your hair and cause frizz.
Do not use rough towels to dry your hair. Instead, use a lighter option like an old cotton t-shirt or a microfiber towel.
Make Wide Tooth Comb Your Best Friend
The quality of your hairbrush and comb are equally important for how your hair looks and behaves.
To extract tangles and knots from your hair, use a broad tooth comb, ideally a wooden one; this avoids breakage as well as eliminates frizz.
Stop getting your hair combed while it’s damp.
