Shower is Calling

Say no to shampoos having mineral oil or petroleum jelly as they stop moisture from entering the hair shaft. Given the humidity levels, it is advisable to wash your hair twice or thrice a week since they tend to become sticky.
Applying leave-in conditioner post shampooing becomes a must to keep hair shining and healthy looking during the sticky humid weather. Hold your hair and squeeze them a bit to remove excess of water but don’t make the mistake of using a towel because that roughens up the hair cuticle and worsens the frizz.
Pour a few drops of the hair conditioner in your palms and apply it into your wet hair. Pick a wide-toothed comb to let the conditioner spread through your hair right from the roots to the tips.
Anti-Humidity Serums and Sprays
Using anti-humidity products is worth trying out in damp and humid weather but don’t use it for long. Although they do some goodness to the hair by preventing moisture to penetrate into your hair shaft, but most of them have silicone that can dry out the hair after repeated use.
To protect your hair from the drying effects of silicone, apply the anti-humidity spray or serum on top of the leave-in conditioner. As a rule, use anti-humidity products on wet hair or else the silicone may leave a dull and greasy look.
Styling Tips for Humid Weather
