"As much as some of us may enjoy getting wet in the rains, the lockdown has pinned us to our windows, with a hot cuppa tea in tow. Monsoons may mean different things for everyone, however, we all share one thing in common - humidity causing FRIZZ! While home remedies and DIY hair hacks have come to be our allies during lockdown, more often than not, solutions on the internet can turn out to be absolute fails. But you needn't worry, by changing up your daily hair-care routine you'll be able to manage your hair effortlessly at home," states Adhuna.
A quick and convenient solution to overcome any hair woe is to include the right products in your hair arsenal. Ensure that these are picked out carefully by you to cater to your hair and scalp type, as well as combat specific weather concerns.
FOLLOW THE CORRECT HAIR-WASH ROUTINE
Now that you have all the time in the world, put in more care when it comes to cleansing your hair! However, look to avoid frequent hair washes or over-washing your hair to avoid excess dryness. "A healthy scalp is important, so ensure that you shampoo twice or thrice a week to gently cleanse it. Don't you forget the conditioner post the shampoo!Pro tip: While the shampoo is meant for your scalp, the conditioner is ideal for the mid-lengths and ends only. For extremely dry hair follow this routine up with an intense moisture serum, to bid dry spells adieu.
Adhuna recommends BBLUNT’s Intense Moisture Range which is enriched with Jojoba and Vitamin E. These essentials work together to strengthen each strand of hair from root to tip. It also locks in the moisture and prevents the hair from drying out.

INVEST IN AN ALL-WEATHER ANTI-FRIZZ LEAVE-IN CREAM

"Our product range offers a versatile Anti-Frizz Leave-In Cream called Climate Control. I totally swear by this and use it all the time! What makes it great is that it allows you to wear your hair naturally, by enhancing its natural movement. Plus, it's also enriched with SPF properties.

LIMIT THE USE OF HEATING TOOLS
Staying housebound has certainly lead to a break from frequent heat styling, chemical treatments, and even colouring your hair. And we can't complain since we sure needed the detox. The lockdown serves as an opportunity to let your hair breathe. Moreover, given the monsoons, you must definitely limit the use of heated tools and embrace the natural texture of your hair. Heating can cause breakage, damage, and dry hair (which you don't require any more of). "Should you have to succumb to styling with heated tools for those occasional Zoom birthday parties, be sure to prep your hair with BBLUNT’s Hot Shot Heat Protecting Hair Mist, enriched with Grapeseed Oil and Provitamin B5. It's the perfect prep-your-hair-before-styling solution, by working as a shield to protect your hair from heat up to 230-degree C," states Adhuna.

DEEP CONDITIONING TREATMENT
Lastly, regardless of your hair texture and 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, followed by the generous application of a conditioner from the mid-lengths of your hair to the ends of your strands. Emulsify well. While at it, give yourself a scalp massage making use of the tips of your fingers in a circular motion to stimulate blood circulation. Post this, wrap a hot towel for 15 minutes. Gently rinse out after and viola!"
