5 Ways To Keep Curly Hair In Check This Rainy Season

Ipsita posted on 22 July

If you’ve been blessed {yes, blessed} with a mane of gorgeous curly hair, you should consider yourself lucky—people out there are paying loads of money to get their hair chemically treated to resemble what you’ve got naturally going on. But curly hair, as stunning as it is, can be a little tricky to manage. And with the monsoons cast right over our heads at the moment, things can get rather…frizzy, to say the least.

To keep your curly hair well behaved and frizz-free this monsoon, we suggest you stock up your shelves with these five products.

The Body Shop Brazil Nut Define & No Frizz

Use this product on damp hair {with all the excess water squeezed out} after you’re done with your regular shampoo and conditioner ritual. Rub the product between your hands and spread it around your hair; taking small strands and twisting and twirling them with your fingers as you make your way around your head.

It keeps the hair smooth, moisturised, and smelling like vanilla all day long!

Garnier Fructis Style Hard Gel

Did you know hair gel is a great way to keep curls keep their shape throughout the day? Because hair gels usually constitute of alcohol, they’ve got a bad rep, but this product is alcohol free, pocket-friendly, and has a kickass hold.

Turn you hair upside down, rub some gel between your hands, smooth the product through the entire length of your hair, and scrunch your hair till your curls become tighter and more defined.

Organix Moroccan Sea Salt Spray

There’s never a better time than the monsoons to use sea-salt spray, especially if your hair is on the wavier side. Spray this evenly across your hair, scrunch them into shape and watch the magic unfold.

We think this is even good to style second or third day hair, as it doesn’t make them {as} crunchy and rough as the other sprays do; just make sure to dampen your hair before you use this.

L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Conditioner

This one’s an expensive buy, but if your hair’s super thick and curly and most conditioners seem like water on them, it’s a great pick. The formula is pretty thick, so you’ll get an intense dose of moisture for your hair, which will, without a doubt, calm all that frizz down. It smells faintly of talcum powder, though, if that might be a problem.

Neev Almond Nourishing Hair Oil

We love our desi coconut oil to bits, but it doesn’t hurt to try something new out every now and then. Most hair oils out there contain mineral oil disguised under the name of some nice nourishing oil, which defeats the purpose if you’re trying to make your hair healthier. This one, thankfully, is not one of those. With a base of almond, coconut, and olive oil, mixed with essential oils of rosemary, lavender, thyme, and cedar, this hair oil, we feel, is massively underrated.

PS: It smells amazing!
