Monsoon Hair Care Routine for Curly Hair

 

The monsoon season brings a refreshing change, but it can also bring many challenges for those with curly hair. Curly hair, by nature, is more susceptible to frizz, tangling, and dryness. The increased humidity during the monsoon only worsens these issues. Maintaining healthy, frizz-free curls during the monsoon requires more than regular hair care. It demands a dedicated routine tailored specifically to the unique needs of curly hair.

The Impact of Monsoon on Curly Hair

Raindrops appear harmless but can lead to excessive moisture and scalp problems, making it quite difficult for you to maintain your curls. Understanding how humidity impacts your curls and implementing a strategic hair care routine can positively affect how your hair looks and feels throughout the season. From pre-monsoon preparations to daily and weekly maintenance, let’s uncover everything you need to keep your curls looking their best, even in the most challenging weather.

Go for Pre-Monsoon Preparation

Start by trimming your hair to prevent split ends from worsening in the humidity. Include deep conditioning treatments, like a moisturising hair mask, to keep your curls hydrated, healthy, and less prone to dryness and brittleness. Go for protective hairstyles such as braids, buns, or twists to guard your hair from frizz and breakage and minimise the need for frequent styling. These steps will help you maintain beautiful, manageable curls throughout the monsoon.

Daily Monsoon Hair Care Routine 

Managing curly hair during the monsoon can be a breeze with the right products and routine. Fix My Curls offers products designed to address the unique challenges of curly and wavy hair during the rainy season. Our easy-to-follow daily haircare process will help you achieve your desired hair goals while keeping your curls remarkably healthy and frizz-free.

Cleansing

For daily hair-cleansing rituals, we recommend using FMC’s Everyday Moisturizing Shampoo, a unique blend of cleanser and conditioner infused with mango butter. This product revives your hair with much-needed moisture. Apply 3–4 pumps, lightly massage your scalp, detangle the ends, and rinse. This step ensures your curls remain hydrated and manageable.

Conditioning

Use the Hydrating Deep Conditioner, formulated with eight nourishing oils and mango butter. This deep conditioning treatment detangles and strengthens your hair. Apply 3-6 pumps, depending on your hair length, and rinse out after thoroughly working it through your curls and leaving it in for 5 minutes.

Hydration

For everyday post-shower hydration, apply the Curl Quenching Hair Butter, which contains tucuma butter for ultra-hydration without the heaviness. Rake it into wet hair, comb through, and air dry to lock in moisture in your curls.

Definition

Finally, style your curls using the Curl Quenching Flax Seed Hair Gelly. This lightweight gel helps define your curl pattern and provides hold without weighing down your hair. Use a coin-sized amount for each section of your hair, scrunch upwards, and let it air dry. Once dry, break the crunchy cast for voluminous, bouncy curls.

Our team of professionals highly recommends against shampooing your hair, daily. Wash your hair every alternate day and use a hair mist of your choice from FMC to keep your hair fresh and smelling good. Our range of lightweight hair mists is designed to keep your hair frizz-free and provide gentle definition, along with an amazing aroma.

Weekly Monsoon Hair Care Routine

A weekly monsoon hair care routine helps you take care of your overall hair health. It ensures your scalp is clean from any product build-up, keeps your curls well-hydrated and prevents any damage to your curls. Following these simple processes, once every week, will help you maintain healthy, frizz-free curls.

Cleansing 

Use a clarifying shampoo weekly to remove buildup from rainwater and styling products. Start with our Cleansing Shampoo, enriched with soothing oils and chelating agents that effectively remove calcium and product buildup. This sulfate-free shampoo gently cleanses your scalp and strands without stripping away natural oils, essential for maintaining moisture in the scalp. Use 2-3 pumps, massage it into your scalp, and rinse thoroughly.

Deep Conditioning Treatments

Get to your weekly hair care routine with deep conditioning to restore moisture and vitality to your curls. Our Moisture Melt Deep Conditioning Hair Mask is a luxurious treatment perfect for dry, damaged, and chemically treated hair. Infused with eight magical oils, shea butter, vitamins, and a blend of fruity goodness, this mask revitalises and rescues your curls. Key ingredients like maracuja oil, honey, banana, amla, and lemons provide soothing, shine-boosting, and volume-enhancing benefits.

Next is our Protein Powered Deep Conditioning Hair Mask, a true powerhouse for curls and waves in need of bounce, strength, and recovery. This balanced protein mask repairs damage with a trio of soy, wheat, and corn proteins, while hydrating to eliminate frizz and flyaways. Enriched with cacao seed butter and avocado oil, it glides through strands to reduce knots while apple amino acids provide essential rehabilitation to damaged hair.

The direction to use either of these hair mask is to apply a generous amount to clean, damp hair, from roots to ends, and massage it in. Detangle with fingers or a wide-tooth comb, cover with a shower cap, and leave for 10-20 minutes before rinsing thoroughly. Use once a week for chemically damaged hair and biweekly for normal hair to enjoy shiny, bouncy curls.

Hot Oil Treatments

Hot oil treatments deeply hydrate and nourish curly hair, combating dryness and frizz. They penetrate through the hair shaft to seal in moisture, enhance shine, and improve hair elasticity, making your curls more defined and manageable. Include hot oil treatments to provide an extra boost of nourishment to your scalp and hair. 

Whether you are a beginner or a veteran with hot oil treatments, we have the perfect thing to offer you: FMC Scalp & Strands Elixir Hair Oil. It is a revolutionary 3-in-1 multitasking oil that heat protects, adds shine, and combats breakage in curly, coily and wavy hair types. Infused with Golden Seaweed, Retinol, and 11 nutrient-rich oils, this weightless serum-like formula is perfect for all hair types, especially curly hair.

Apply 1-2 drops to scrunch out crunch and add shine, or use it as a breakage remedy overnight. For scalp health and growth, massage 2-3 drops into the scalp every two days. Get volume, soft curls, and weightless shine with consistent use.

Handling Rainy Day Emergencies

Rainy days can be unpredictable, but with a well-prepared rainy-day kit and some quick fixes, you can keep your curls looking their best throughout. Carry essentials like hair ties, a travel-size leave-in conditioner such as FMC's Leave-In Cream, and an anti-frizz spray like FMC's Ready, Set, Refresh Spray.

If your hair gets wet, reapply the leave-in conditioner to redefine and moisturise your curls, or use quick braiding techniques to control frizz and create a stylish look. Tying your hair into a bun or ponytail can also help you protect it from the rain and maintain a chic appearance. These simple tips will help you handle any rainy-day hair emergency with ease, ensuring healthy, frizz-free curls.
