It’s no secret that Mumbai is the capital city for all things humidity. When you add the monsoons of Mumbai to the mix, it’s just a recipe for disaster. Frizzy hair is something we all deal with, whether our locks are straight, wavy or curly. However, some face the brunt of it more than others do. Keeping the frizziness at bay isn’t as easy as it sounds. You could be using the best smoothening and frizz-free shampoos and conditioners, but if you’re not using hair masks— you’re definitely missing out!

Now, frizzy hair is caused when the external layer of our hair attracts moisture. This causes it to change texture and kinda blow up a little more than usual. Yep, exactly like that episode from F.R.I.E.N.D.S. where Monica Geller’s hair is beastly. So basically, when your hair is dry and there’s humidity around you, that’s when your hair is the most prone to getting frizzy. One way to combat this is by using hair masks that are specially created for keeping the frizz at bay. Hair masks provide extra nourishment and shine, and are the key to making frizzy hair manageable.

Here are a few hair masks that do a great job at that.

Oh, and did we mention this hair mask works like a charm for all hair types? Whether you’ve chemically treated your hair or coloured it or even if your hair is simply just hella dry.
