Monsoon hair-care routine & tips

Monsoon brings the much-needed relief from the scorching summer heat but with that, it brings a slew of hair problems. If you don’t provide extra care to your tresses in this season, they will become extremely frizzy, dry, and hard to manage. Let’s not forget the age-old issues of hair fall and dandruff that accompany this weather!The main reason behind hair fall and frizziness is the high humidity levels in the monsoons. Our hair becomes more sensitive to airborne hydrogen that makes it weak and dry. The hair roots swell and erupt which causes hair to fall. But don’t worry, to tackle all these problems, you just need to follow a few easy steps.Here, we’ll talk about a simple yet effective hair routine you can follow this rainy season and some extra tips to maintain a flawless mane. So let’s get started!


This is without a doubt one of the most important steps in your hair care regimen. The trick is to choose a shampoo that is gentle on your hair and doesn’t strip away the moisture. If your current shampoo is not working in this weather, you can switch to another one, preferably a sulphate-free formula that helps in retaining the natural moisture in your tresses.Try to wash your hair at least twice a week as rainwater can leave a lot of residue and grime on your scalp that makes your roots weak and accelerates hair fall.


Humidity can really dry out your scalp and make your hair lifeless. But conditioning can be a boon for your hair. Select a conditioner as per your hair type. It will help in keeping your locks soft, smooth, and lustrous.This step is also very essential to protect your mane against outside damage. Always ensure to coat your hair from root to tip and leave the conditioner on your hair for 5 to 10 minutes before washing off.


Oiling is important for healthy hair in general. But in the monsoon season, it is a magical treatment to keep your tresses nourished and strong. You must massage your scalp thoroughly with oil before every head wash. Also, do not forget the length of your hair and the tips. It is the best method to strengthen your hair and make them lustrous. For better results, opt for an oil that is chemical and preservative-free. You can choose from the wide range of cold-pressed oils at Indulge Essentials.

Cold-pressing is one of the newer techniques of oil extraction where the oils retain all their flavor, aroma, and nutritional value that makes them excellent for hair and skincare. These oils are rich in natural antioxidants and contain no harmful residues, chemicals, or artificial fragrances.

Additional Hair Care Tips

Use Wide Toothed Comb – Your hair gets easily tangled in the humid weather. Using a hairbrush can lead to hair fall. A wide-toothed comb suits all hair types and detangles the hair strands without causing damage.

Avoid Styling Products – Hair styling products and heating tools can gradually damage your hair and dry them out. This damage is intensified in the monsoons. Cut back on them for a few months and see the difference it makes! These products include hair gels, setting sprays, dyes, and appliances like curlers, straighteners, etc.

Check Your Diet – Junk food greatly contributes to hair thinning. Try to cut down on caffeine as it dehydrates your body which dries your hair shaft and causes hair fall. Consume fresh, leafy vegetables and fruits as much as possible. They will provide you with the necessary nutrition content to strengthen your hair. Moreover, do not forget to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water in a day to keep yourself hydrated.

Use a Scarf – Carrying a scarf or a hat while stepping out is a good idea in the rainy season. This way, you can cover up your hair and protect them against exposure to humidity to some extent. It will look super stylish and your hair will stay protected.
