Monsoon brings with a lot of excitement, freshness, cooling, and happiness but it also means that you need to gear up for some serious hair and skin care problems.

While you do a lot of things like hot oil massages from time to time, hair spa, hair washes, and frequent hair trimming to avoid split ends, there is something that needs a bit more attention - hair colour. There is a point when you wonder - is hair colour a good choice during the monsoon? Read on to find out...

Hair Colour Tips For Monsoon

Why Does You Hair Need More Care During Monsoon

Monsoon brings with it a lot of humidity and dampness which hampers hair growth. It is that time of the year when you hair turns frizzy and your scalp gets totally greasy, making your hair look oily and full. It is the time when you hair is more prone to breakage and even worse - split ends.

The only way to avoid hair problems during monsoon is by locking its moisture and providing it with the necessary care and nourishment. You can do this at home easily by simply using home remedies that are readily available in your kitchen. These remedies are completely safe to use and do not contain any harsh chemicals that are bad for your hair.

Is Colouring Your Hair During Monsoon A Good Choice?

While hair care is of utmost importance during monsoon, hair colouring, to be specific, has got nothing to do with the rains. It does not harm your hair as such in any way. However, there are certain things that you need to keep in mind while considering hair colour during monsoon, especially if you want that colour to stay intact and for a longer period of time.

When you opt for colouring your hair - which means involving chemicals - and especially during monsoon when your hair is prone to a number of problems, you must try and avoid the usage of heat styling products as they can be really damaging. Instead, you could go for deep nourishing hair packs that will protect your hair colour and make it soft and healthy.
