Rainy season Hair care tips Rainy – season for super dry skins and damaged hair has arrived with excess humidity in the air. Many think that summer is the season that causes much hair damage but no rainy season has its own set of weather-induced disturbance that strip away the outermost layer of the hair strand cuticle making it brittle, rough and prone to dryness.
Here I suggest you few tips to keep your hair safe and glossy in the monsoon – hair-care regime in the monsoon.In monsoons, dry your hair before you leave the house and protect your hair from damage. Traditionally, people with long hair used to dry hair using the towel i.e. after shampooing the wet hair is made to blot using the towel until it is slightly dry. Make sure you don’t comb your hair when wet.
Rainy season Hair care tips
Shampoo twice in a week
Shampoo twice in a week to maintain a healthy scalp and take a bath when you have been walking in the rain. As rainy water left on your scalp for longer time makes you feel itchy and your hair is even susceptible to bacterial or fungal infections and may even lead to dandruff. Washing your hair every day or too often can multiply the problems you already have with your hair.
This is one of my favorites!! Take time off from your busy schedule and grab a hair oil of your choice and give your hair strands a natural boost of moisture that can hydrate and revitalize the driest strands in brisk temperatures. Massage the oils till the scalp absorbs some and for deep conditioning you can even put on a plastic cap and/or a hot towel.
Avoid hair styling
Hair styling in damp monsoon weather can damage your hair. Tying up your hair tight is not advised in monsoon as it leads to trapping of rain water in your hair and the humidity makes the hair even more frizzy and limp.
Try a loose bun, loose hair, loose side pony tail and protect your hair from humidity exposure. Keep your hair trimmed and short during the monsoons for easy cleaning and maintaining.
