Season sure does affect our moods. Talking about Monsoon after several days under heatwave is a silver lining we all so desperately long for. It lifts our spirit, elevate our senses, everything green and fresh to the eyes.
What about our Hair? – It literally is a different story we all know.
“It’s the HUMIDITY, Not the Heat”, especially for those whose hair won’t cooperate at all during Monsoon.
TO understand the drill of frizzy messed up hair with humidity, let’s find out what exactly is the deal with our hair properties.
The chemical structure of human hair is essentially keratin protein fibres with other traces of molecules such as carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, sulphur,.etc binding together in bundles within each hair strand. These bundles are held together by :
And ironically, our hair’s hydroscopic property – i.e, reactive towards atmospheric moisture forming hydrogen bonds readily with the hair proteins, makes the individual strand go wild & fuzzy shapes.
The case is extreme in really humid days, obviously. And thats why, trying to look sleek & perfect hair during Monsoon is the hardest thing to imagine.
Of course, the responds & reactions to humidity for different hair types or textures will definitely be different. Straight long hair will be wavy, curly to curlier, rough & damaged hair to ….you know ! People with dry & rough hair textures suffer more than those with smooth & neatly lined hair as their original moisture retention varies apparently.
When you’re dealing with rough frizzy hair, the obvious fact is your hair responds terribly to humidity. Meaning- your outer layer of hair strand (known as Cuticle) are already dry, porous & develop bark-like scales that lift up and absorb moisture from the air producing unrelenting Frizz, puff locks and dullness.
Since you already sail-through the Science of your hair structure along with the strange effects of humidity, you can safely slide through your Monsoon without freaking out much. However, the solution to this is a necessary maintenance, not a one-time punch button. Relax, your hair is fairly manageable if you provide right treatments. As easy as its vulnerability to humidity, your hair can also mitigate possible hazards with moderate maintenance.
