I have really long hair, so a good hair care routine becomes a must to maintain them, especially during the monsoon! These are the products and steps that I swear by for my mane.
Step 1- I keep changing my Shampoo & Conditioner every 3-4 months. The L'Oreal X-tenso is my new favourite! It leaves my hair soft and cleans the scalp perfectly. I wash my hair everyday therefore I prefer using a mild shampoo and this one works perfectly.
Step 2- Ever since I came across Moroccan oil, around almost a year ago, it has become a holy grail product. I apply a small amount of it everyday after washing my hair. I have stopped using all the serums & it's kinds. Moroccan oil is an organic treatment which not only tames the frizz in my hair on a daily basis but has also done long term wonders for my hair.
Step 3- I avoid using heat on my hair during the monsoon because that only makes my hair drier. But if I really have to, I would never do it without a heat protectant. The John Frieda Frizz-Ease is an all time favourite. It acts as a 2-in-1 by helping with the frizz and the thermal protection works against the heat. The Fx Flat iron spray is another amazing product. If you're someone who likes blow drying or straightening or curling your hair on a regular basis, please use a heat protectant, if you don't already. It will reduce the damage caused by the extensive use of heat.
Step 4- Mumbai's humidity makes it hard to keep my hair in place. So whenever I curl or straighten my hair, I spray on some hair spray to help it last longer.
Step 5- Last, I use 100% pure coconut oil every fortnight as an over night treatment to keep my hair healthy and to prevent them from drying. It moisturizes my hair and makes up for all the damage caused due to pollution, heat used or chemicals! And whenever I feel extra love for my hair, I book myself a hair spa!

TIP :- I believe using too many products can only damage your hair. So try to find the few products that work for you and stick to them. Also try using organic products as much as you can. Avoid buying cheaper hair products, instead invest in some good hair care.
