Rain and humidity bring along new struggle for our tresses. Hair fall, dandruff and fizziness are some of the most dreaded results of moisture and drenched hair. If not taken care properly, the season looks like a series of bad hair days.
You surely don’t want to spend the enchanting rainy evenings in tight hair buns, worrying about how your hair looks. Let your hair down even when the weather is not very favourable. Here’s how:
- 1. Customize your hair-care routine according to the season
A good hair-massage followed by hair-wash and conditioning twice a week, might work for you rest of the year, but monsoons need a few amendments. Moisture in the atmosphere makes your scalp oily, naturally. Hence, massage your hair with little amount of oil that doesn’t require a lot of shampoo to wash off. Moreover, condition only the length of your hair and divide it evenly by using a wide toothed comb.
Besides, do not towel dry your hair as it makes them dry and frizzy. Instead, apply serum and let your hair air dry. This will help reduce the frizz and make your hair more manageable.
- 2. Let your hair tell the story of your nutritious meals
We all know how our food intake reflects on our skin. Very often, we miss the fact that our hair too tell the story of what we eat. A diet low in nutrition will lead to thinning life-less hair, which are very vulnerable to rain and humidity. A wholesome food intake, on the contrary, will give you a strong and healthy looking mane.
- 3. Resort to home-made hair packs
Hair-friendly foods don’t limit to meal ideas only. Their benefits extend as hair packs. One of the most sought after home-made hair pack is made with 1 egg, 1 table spoon honey and 1 tablespoon curd. Mix it well and massage it on your scalp for a few minutes. This will help prevent dandruff. Apply it to the entire length of your hair and let it stay for 20 – 30 minutes before you wash it off. This will help condition your hair naturally. Stick to your regular shampoo routine followed by this.
- 4. Keep away from hair styling
Coloring, straightening, curling or any other chemical/heat exposure can damage your hair and make them unmanageable, when the atmosphere is humid and damp. Style your hair naturally, instead.
- 5. A monsoon hairdo, anybody
If your life involves too many hours outdoors or very little time for self-maintenance, taking care of long hair can be a daunting task. A manageable short hairdo is a better option than struggling with a dry and frizzy long mane. A chic monsoon hairdo, after all, is always a delight.
- 6. Cover stylishly
Rain coats with a water resistant hoodie, scarfs and water-resistant caps are a good way to protect your hair from rain-water. Covering your head will also protect your scalp against moisture.
Monsoon season does not only invite skin and hair problems, there are a number of diseases that come along with it. While you resort to various remedies, it is also essential it safeguard yourself with a good health insurance cover so that you are prepared for any kind of medical situations that may arise all of a sudden.
