Frizzy hair refers to a condition where the hair strands become dry, coarse, and unmanageable, resulting in a frizzy appearance. It is characterised by a lack of smoothness, increased volume, and the formation of flyaways and tangles. Frizz occurs when the hair's outer layer strands swell and become uneven, leading to a frizzy texture.

During summer, several factors contribute to the increased frizziness of hair. Firstly, high humidity levels are common during this season. Humidity refers to the amount of moisture present in the air. When the air is humid, the excess moisture interacts with the hair strands, causing them to absorb the water molecules and expand. This absorption leads to the raised cuticle layer and the frizzy appearance.

Exposure to the sun's intense rays can damage the hair's natural protective layer, the cuticle. UV radiation breaks down the proteins in the hair, making it more porous and susceptible to frizz. Additionally, the sun can dehydrate the hair, causing it to lose moisture and become brittle and frizzy.

Furthermore, frequent swimming in chlorinated or salt water pools during summer can exacerbate frizz. Chlorine and salt are both drying agents that strip the hair of its natural oils, leaving it parched and prone to frizziness.

To combat frizz during summer, it is advisable to use hair care products specifically designed for frizzy hair, such as moisturising shampoos, conditioners, and serums. Adopting a hair care routine that focuses on hydration, protection, and minimising exposure to damaging factors can help manage frizzy hair during the summer months.

Here are some secrets to help you maintain smooth and manageable hair during the summer months:

  1. Hydration is Essential: Keep your hair well-hydrated by using a moisturising shampoo and conditioner. Look for products that contain natural oils to lock in moisture and prevent frizz. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Oil Balancing Shampoo can nourish your scalp without stripping away the natural oils, while still controlling the oiliness in your hair.

  2. Minimise heat styling: Heat styling tools can further damage and dehydrate your hair. Embrace your natural texture during summer and opt for heat-free styling methods like air-drying or using foam rollers. If you must use heat, apply a heat protectant spray to minimise damage.

  3. Use a brush with natural bristles: These tools help distribute natural oils from your scalp to the ends of your hair, reducing frizz. Avoid using fine-toothed combs or brushes with synthetic bristles, as they can cause breakage and static.

  4. Deep conditioning treatments: Treat your hair to a nourishing deep conditioning treatment once a week to replenish moisture and repair any damage caused by the sun, heat, or chlorine. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Cream Conditioner helps repair split ends and enhances hair glow.

  5. Anti-frizz products: Add natural hair serums and hair oils to your hair care routine. Look for products that provide humidity resistance and help seal the hair cuticle, keeping it smooth and frizz-free. Blossom Kochhar Hair Serums are prepared with natural extracts and have a blend of essential oils that help keep hair protected and frizz-free.

  6. Avoid over-washing: Washing your hair too frequently can strip off natural oils, leading to dryness and frizz. Try to extend the time between washes or use dry shampoo to freshen up your hair without drying it out.

  7. Protect from the sun: Wear hats or use hair products with UV protection to shield your hair from the sun's damaging rays.

By following these tips and incorporating them into your summer hair care routine, you can significantly reduce frizz and enjoy smoother, more manageable hair throughout the season.
