Monsoon Hair Tips #2

It is that time of the year again to listen to the pitter-patter of the rain drops, sip a steaming hot cup of ginger tea and deal with hair woes. Yes, you heard it! The monsoon is one solitary season within all 365 days which causes grief to ladies who love their tresses, primarily due to the increased humidity in the climate.

 In the previous partof our monsoon hair care series, we covered the nourishment that hair needs and avoiding the worry of hair fall. Today, we shall speak about a few more of those monsoon hair worries and just the right solutions for you to them.

Cleanse your hair:
A common issue faced by many in the monsoons is that of greasy hair. A sudden downpour can wet a head of hair and when not thoroughly dried, such hair can attract dust and grime from the surroundings. The added moisture in the atmosphere, especially when the rainfall is happening in bouts, can also result in profuse sweating which is another factor that weighs down the hair. By the end of the day, you can feel the limpness in your previously-healthy hair.
When possible avoid getting your hair wet in passing showers of rain by either putting the hood on of your raincoat or windcheater, opening your umbrella or waiting in an enclosed space till the rain subsides. Sometimes, that can be impossible and after doing your best to avoid the shower, you might just get caught in one. As a curative measure for this, make you dry your hair as soon as possible, either by towel or by the cool setting of the blow dryer. Ensure that you use a clarifying shampoo strips your scalp of any grease and will leave it clean.

 Bid Dandruff goodbye:
The increased moisture content in the climate can cause a number of issues, another one of them being dandruff. To treat dandruff, make sure you hair gets as much care as you possibly can provide. Carry out hot oil massages for your scalp on a weekly basis. Purchase an anti-dandruff shampoo that is suited to address this problem. Follow the home remedy of mixing neem and amla in your hot oil massages and avoid leaving your hair unwashed for more than 2 days.
