Rain Messed

   Hair Rescues

Behold the time when our hair loves to go rogue and misbehave—how’re your monsoon woes shaping up this year? Our tresses have a mind of their own, and love poufing up or going limp in these rainy months! Yes, we all share that frustration. But a little understanding into demystifying this curious phenomenon may go a long way in battling this annual ritual.

Why does hair flip out during monsoons?

Our hair is hygroscopic, which means it tends to attract water molecules from the environment on a humid day, which in turn causes the shaft to swell up. What’s more, different parts of a hair follicle absorb water to different extents and you’re inevitably left with twisted, curled up strands, no matter whether your hair is curly or fine. Yikes!

Rain messed hair rescues editorial insert 1Naturally curly hair when exposed to humidity may often curl excessively and take your frizz-free dreams farther away from reality, even if they had been meticulously straightened or blow-dried before you stepped out. Extensive touching or brushing can wreak havoc on your ringlets and intensify fuzzy locks. Our fellow straight haired ladies have got it no easier! The extra moisture absorbed into the fine hair follicles drowns the hair shaft with its weight and they’re left with flat, limp and super-greasy tresses, with an oily scalp to top it all off.

Before you pass off monsoon as just a nightmarish experience and nothing more, breathe—you can still tackle it and sail through the sultriest of days with happy hair confidence.

Your knight-in-shining armour: Conditioner

Rain messed hair rescues editorial 3First things first: condition, condition, condition! It’s a no-brainer, really. The more your mane is moisturized, the lesser it will absorb from the environment. Make sure you check off a weekly deep-condition treatment that packs in humectants and protein-rich vitamins. For a coarser, thicker or longer mane, leave-in masks are a must, as they are moisturising and don’t fully rinse out when you’re caught in a downpour. In fact, smoothing sealants and anti-frizz products when applied on soaking wet hair can help keep cuticles as flat as possible, resulting in healthy strands even in the most humid of temperatures.

A few simple changes = Bye-Bye frizz

How you style your hair post-shower also decides how they would fare in the high-humidity hair apocalypse. For instance, swapping oil or cream-based styling products with water-based ones can prevent fine hair from weighing down. Throw in texturizing sprays and volume-enhancing mousses to add volume to your distressed roots and limp hair would never get to see the light of day err...rainy day.

Quick-tip: Apply your volumizing products at the end of your hair’s shaft for better absorption and do not overload on the product, unless you want to drown your roots.

An absolute must

During the monsoon months, it’s best to embrace your natural texture—allow your curly or fine hair to dry naturally and let them loose to fight humidity better.
