Dur­ing the mon­soon, hair tends to ab­sorb ex­tra mois­ture from the overly-hu­mid air. De­pend­ing on the hair type, we are all left fac­ing dif­fer­ent kinds of prob­lems in the rains. While thin hair falls flat on hu­mid days, wavy or curly hair ends up be­com­ing frizzy.

“Hair care is vi­tal dur­ing the rainy sea­son. Whether they are frizzy, wavy, straight or curly, it is im­por­tant to keep your hair and scalp clean and dry in the mon­soon. Avoid get­ting wet in the rains as the pol­lu­tants may weaken your hair shaft bonds, mak­ing your hair dull and limp,” says Dr Mo­han Thomas, cosmetic sur­geon.
