Everyone has been waiting for the monsoon for a long time, especially after the scorching heat of summer. And, why not? Who doesn’t love rain?
But, the only problem with the monsoon is that the hair starts to get frizzy and rough. Don’t worry, you are not alone. Almost everyone experiences this issue.
We need to tackle this hair problem and know the right way to enjoy the monsoons without worrying about it. So here are some ways to take care of your hair during the rain and prevent it from getting crimped and coarse.
It also helps decrease hair loss that many of us are facing this season. Here we have listed these methods on how to prevent frizz and hair loss during monsoon.
1. Use mild sulfate-free shampoos.
This is the most important tip. Using strong shampoo is never a good idea. Therefore, replace your current shampoo with a mild one made from natural ingredients, if possible. Using a mild shampoo has two benefits:
a) The hair will not be rough and will ultimately be less frizzy.
b) The hair does not tangle as much, so there is less hair loss.
In this humid climate, wash your hair every other day with a mild shampoo. Keep your hair clean; as a result; there will be no roughness or hair fall.
2. Always use conditioner, but in the right way
Inaccurate use of conditioner can increase hair loss by up to 40%. Therefore, the mantra is to use the conditioner only on the length of the hair. Do not use conditioner on the scalp. Natural oils are more than enough to nourish hair near the roots. No additional conditioning is required for hair close to the scalp.
3. Dry your hair completely
Another very important thing is to remember to completely dry your hair before styling it. Do not try to comb wet hair. It may increase hair loss. If you don’t have time to wait, using a hair dryer- can be a good option.
4. Use a comb – wide-tooth comb.
Put the brush in the drawer and start using a wide comb. You will be surprised how better it reduces hair loss. They create less friction, so the hair gets less frizzy.
5. Use an anti-tangle or anti-frizz spray.
Using a spray makes it easier to style your hair. Thus, your hair will no longer become rough. Also, fewer tangles lead to less hair loss.
6. Use a light hair oil.
The scalp produces more oils, especially in high humidity conditions. Hence, it’s better to prevent using heavy oils like castor oil and olive oil for now.
Instead, use light hair oils like avocado, jojoba, and coconut oil, and make sure you apply the oil very, very near the roots. Also, apply a generous amount of oil throughout.
Another thing to avoid during monsoons is overnight hair oiling; rather, apply the oil 2-3 hours before showering.
7. Do Some Hairstyle
Instead of leaving the hair open, choose a hairstyle that stays in place. High buns and ponytails are ideal. Braid your hair when you are at home. You can choose the hairstyle you like the most; the only idea is to avoid friction. Therefore, keep your hair out of your face and shoulders.
Never ignore the diet. It plays a central role in all aspects of health. Drink lots of water, exercise, and watch what you eat. Have a wholesome bowl of fresh fruits and vegetables. Increase your intake of iron and vitamins. And prefer to eat foods that are rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids. We know how loud street food vendors will scream in this rainy weather, but try to reduce the amount of junk food you eat.
So, we hope that these methods will help you. Remember, enjoy the rain but take care of your manes.
