Adhuna Bhabani’s Expert Hacks for Monsoon Haircare at Home
Monsoons can mean a lot of things for everyone, but we all share one in common – humidity causing frizz! No one enjoys extremely dry and frizzy hair. Home remedies and DIY hair hacks have become allies during the lockdown. But more often than not, solutions on the internet can turn into absolute fails, as every individual’s hair is different.
We consulted BBLUNT Founder and Creative Director, Adhuna Bhabani and she shared a few expert-approved monsoon hacks for your daily hair care routine at home.
Quarantine Monsoon Check List
A quick and convenient solution to overcome any hair problem and maintain the mane well is to include the right products in your hair arsenal. Make sure these cater to your hair and scalp type as well as combat the specific weather concerns. Read on to know simple ways to prevent dryness and tackle frizz that accompanies the monsoons:
The Correct Wash Routine
Rushing off to where we needed to be meant we didn’t take the time to really cleanse the scalp, let alone condition the strands well. So take enough time, now that you have it, for a hair wash but remember to avoid frequent hair washes or over-wash your hair.
A healthy scalp is as important as a healthy mane, so ensure you shampoo twice or thrice a week to gently cleanse it. Be sure to always follow up a shampoo with a conditioner. You can try BBLUNT’s Intense Moisture Range which is enriched with Jojoba and Vitamin E which works together to strengthen each strand of hair from root to tip, locks in the moisture and prevents hair from drying out. For extremely dry hair, follow this routine up with an Intense Moisture Serum to bid dry spells goodbye.
Important tip: While the shampoo is meant for your scalp, the conditioner is for the mid-lengths and ends only.
Invest in an All-Weather Anti-Frizz Leave-in Cream
Given the current scenario, stepping out in the rains may seem unlikely but the humidity in the air can cause an absolute hair-havoc. BBLUNT offers a versatile Anti-Frizz Leave-In Cream called Climate Control – I swear by it and use it by the bucketful! What makes it great is that it allows you to wear your hair naturally, by enhancing its natural movement. All you need is two pumps to protect and nourish your hair as you style it. Undoubtedly, the best frizz fighter out there and as a plus, it is enriched with SPF properties so works for your hair, whatever the weather.
Limit the Use of Heated Tools
Staying housebound has in a way hinted at a break from frequent heat styling, chemical treatments, and for some even colouring your hair. It’s a sign to let your hair breathe. The monsoons make for an even more ideal time to limit the use of heated tools and embrace the natural texture of your hair. Giving it the much-needed detox it craves. However, should you have to succumb to styling with heated tools for those occasional Zoom birthday calls or virtual game nights with friends, be sure to prep your hair with BBLUNT’s Hot Shot Heat Protecting Hair Mist, which is enriched with Grapeseed Oil and Provitamin B5, the perfect prep to ready your hair before styling. It works as a shield to protect your hair from heat up to 230-degree C.
Lastly, regardless of your texture and hair type, a pro-hack is a deep conditioning treatment to maintain hair health and keep the tresses looking well-nourished. Fret not, even though you have limited access to your stylists and favourite salons, Adhuna lets us in on a hack to replicate the same experience at home – begin by cleansing your scalp with a shampoo and then using your conditioner apply generously from the mid-lengths to ends of your strands. Emulsify well. While at it, give yourself a scalp massage by using the tips of your fingers in a circular motion to really stimulate your scalp and get the blood circulating. Then, wrap a hot towel for 15 minutes. Gently rinse out after and Viola!
