Monsoon is the season when your hair behaves differently due to the humidity in the air, and a diligent haircare regime is needed to nourish your hair from within and keep your volume and bounce. So model-turned-Bollywood starlet Nargis Fakhri gives readers her take on how to keep one's mane as ravishing as hers during the rains!

Being in my profession, I need an effective haircare regime that can cope with the excess moisture in the air during the monsoons and keep my hair smooth and manageable 24x7. Three thumb rules I swear by for my hair are drinking water, a healthy diet, adequate sleep and regular deep-conditioning massages with hot coconut-based hair oil.

A 20-minute deep conditioning massage with hot coconut-based hair oil is my non-negotiable haircare ritual, especially during this season. Coconut-based hair oil deeply penetrates into your scalp to deeply condition your hair, making it an instant solution against the frizz and keeping my hair voluminous, thick and full of bounce.

When I wash my hair in the monsoons, I pat my hair dry with a towel, and use a soft hairbrush or a wide-toothed comb so that my hair isn't treated harshly and it maintains its shine and natural oils.

Sometimes after many long days of shooting, all the hairstyling makes my hair slightly dry, especially in the monsoon when the weather is humid.

I simply get a quick 20-minute deep-conditioning massage with hot coconut-based hair oil, which nourishes my hair from within and brings back my volume and bounce.

I also make sure I don't tie my hair very tightly, as it will leave the strands broken, leading to unnecessary damage and roughness. It's best to keep your hair styles as simple as possible, maybe a sleek ponytail or a bun, as they are the easiest to maintain in the humid weather.

A good diet of three to four portions of fruit and vegetables gives me my share of antioxidants to keep my hair healthy. Also, protein-enriched food such as milk, yoghurt; sprouts etc provide my hair with the essential nourishment. Drinking fluids like coconut water keep my system hydrated and refreshed, which makes sure my hair is healthy.
