Monsoon season brings with it a whole host of hair issues. We have all experienced hair problems caused by humidity or water. Don’t worry if the rain is a concern for you this time. Here are some tips on caring for your hair in the monsoon, even when it’s raining cats or dogs.
Keep your hair dry
This may seem obvious, but it’s essential. The rainwater isn’t pure or clean, so the more you get soaked, the dirtier and more bacteria accumulate on your scalp. This causes more hair to fall than usual. You may lose between 40-60 hair strands on a typical day. However, on a wet day, this number can increase to 200.
Even if you have a good morning hairstyle, resist the temptation to let your hair flow. Stick to basic braiding styles and tie them differently to avoid getting your hair wet. Braiding will strengthen your hair follicles. Make sure to leave your home with an umbrella.
Use a mild Shampoo
It is essential to use a mild shampoo like Vatika’s Heena & Olive shampoo if you shampoo more often during the monsoon. This shampoo is excellent for removing dirt, oil, and moisture from your scalp without frying your hair under the harsh light of chemicals. A mild shampoo allows you to shampoo your hair more frequently, restoring shine and bounce.
Try this hair care tip for monsoons if your hair is curly and dry. Apply a paste made of two bananas, honey, and let it sit for an hour. This will moisturize your hair and keep them soft. Apply lemon juice to your scalp and wash it after 15 minutes. You will have an oil-free scalp. Aloe Vera Gel can be used in the current season to treat dandruff, split ends, and hair loss since it reduces bacteria, restores pH balance and soothes itching. Dabur Amla hair oil can also reduce frizz, increase nourishment, and enhance shine. These remedies work best when you’re staying at home. Try these monsoon remedies even if your hair doesn’t seem to have any problems.
Reduce the use of hair products.
It is natural to use hair products if you don’t have naturally flowing hair. Avoid this, as using too many products can do more harm than good. These chemical-based products can make your hair oily/greasy due to excessive humidity. This can cause damage to your scalp and hair, resulting in dandruff.
Watch your diet
Including more protein in your daily diet is essential for your hair’s health. Proteins make up the majority of hair strands, so stocking up on vitamins, minerals, and proteins will improve your hair’s health. Avoid eating foods that are too oily. Combining the oils on your skin and the humidity will cause pimples. Salmon, eggs, carrots, dark green vegetables, nuts, and low-fat dairy products are all excellent protein sources.
