After a prolonged period of aggravating heat waves across the nation, the monsoon showers come as a welcome change — giving us the much-needed respite from the scorching sun. However, this also means that the imminent hair troubles with the excess humidity are bound to resurface and most of us are torn between rejoicing in the pleasant weather and fretting over our hair woes. Our hair endures a lot on a day-to-day basis, from withstanding the repercussions of the contaminated air it comes in contact with to bearing the brunt of the fluctuating temperatures amongst other external aggravators. Dry ends and an oily scalp are some of the most pertinent monsoon hair challenges one has to circumvent (we are all in the same boat here), but the monsoon frizz continues to be the biggest concern amongst the masses. Combating the challenges aforementioned in this weather can be especially hard as a trip to a salon isn’t always feasible. Things are bound to get trickier on days when social engagements post a long day at work await us (good luck if your hair, like mine, has a mind of its own).
So on days you have dinner parties or other social commitments that you must attend, you obviously can’t show up with your hair in a pony or a messy bun (not the good kind). Luckily, there’s a way to fix that. With Nykaa addressing all your hair-related questions with a special curation of hair products, you can leave your worries at bay (Hi Nykaa Hair Studio!). Spread across four days, some of the most loved professional hair brands are available on superb discounts to make sure you don’t ever have to go experience a bad hair day, ever. And to top it, these offerings are designed specifically to give you a salon-like finish at the comfort of your home. Scroll down for everything you need to know.
L'Oreal Professionnel Absolut Repair Shampoo with Protein and Gold Quinoa
L'Oreal Professionnel X-Tenso Care Shampoo Sulfate Free
The professional offering under one of the most illustrious hair care brands — L'Oréal has been designed with the intention of intense care and advanced repair. Deficiency of protein makes the hair extremely dry and the ends too brittle, a problem that can be countered with the Absolut Repair Shampoo with Protein and Gold Quinoa, Serie Expert adeptly. During monsoons, due to the excess hydrogen in the atmosphere, the hair strands form hydrogen bonds which further leads to extreme frizz. Inorder to deal with the problem at hand, if you wish to avail a shampoo that is mild, forgoes sulphate and is still effective then highly recommend the X-Tenso Care Shampoo.
