Our hair care routine plays a big factor in its health and overall look. During the rainy season, our scalp attracts more dust and dirt. Apart from cleansing, we also need to make sure that our hair stays sleek and manageable. Using products rich in keratin can also help your hair stay healthy and frizz-free during rainy days.

Editor’s tip: Changes in temperature and humidity can trigger dandruff. Use CLEAR Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo to help prevent dandruff while keeping your hair smelling fresh and fragrant. 

2. Dry your hair

Using a wide-tooth comb is less invasive and it won’t stress out your hair.
