Hair care in rains or monsoon
Monsoon – 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.
Keep your hair dry
Do you like getting wet in the drizzle??
Ohhh… nothing can ever beat that but here is the bad news – getting wet in the rains very often is not really good for your hair.
Yes!!!! Rain water is usually acidic and dirty while the increased levels of humidity in monsoon hyper your hair woes.
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.
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.
Try not to use many hair products in particular ignore hair sprays.
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.
Buy waterproof jackets with hoodie
Yes!!! Whenever you step out make sure you carry a water-proof jacket with a hoodie along with you even if you feel it is not going to rain. The waterproof rain coats and jackets help you stay dry. I know many would not prefer weaning one. You can also check out some colorful umbrellas to show off your dress and experience the chilly rainy weather all your way.
