5 Tips to Protect your Hair this Rainy Season
Tips to protect your hair during the rainy season –
We often face problems like excessive hair fall, dandruff, dry, brittle& thin hair during this time of the year.
Below are a few simple tips on how to take care of your mane this monsoon.
It is most essential to keep your hair dry as far as possible. After shampooing, make sure your hair is 100% dry and then comb it using a wide-toothed comb before stepping out of the house. Wet hair is more prone to breakage and damage. Try tying your hair using a simple hair accessory like a scarf. It helps in shielding the hair from the sun and prevents it from getting wet.
2) Avoid getting wet in the rain
If you do, then make sure that you come back and use a good shampoo to clean your hair properly – right from the root to the tip, and conditioner on the length of the hair to replenish any lost nourishment. This is essential as pollutants in the rainwater weaken your hair and make them lose their natural shine & luster.
Monsoons mean excessive humidity which leads to dull, brittle and frizzy hair. This often results in an excessively oily scalp and dandruff. It is a good idea to stay away from frequent styling and chemical treatments for hair. It is equally important to never skip conditioning your hair after shampooing it. This helps in replenishing all the lost nutrients and helps hair to gain back its softness.
4) Stay hydrated
It is utmost essential to stay hydrated in the monsoon season. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Eat freshly cooked green leafy vegetables, whole grains, fruit, kidney beans, eggs, and other protein-rich foods. This helps in strengthening the hair follicles and reduce hair fall.
5) Warm Hair Oil Massages
Pampering yourself with warm hair oil massages followed by hair wash and conditioning is a significant ritual to be followed in monsoons. This helps in making the hair soft & more manageable. Another good idea is to massage aloe vera gel on the scalp & hair to cure dandruff, split ends and other hair connected problems.
