The monsoon may be a great time to enjoy nature, however, getting caught in a downpour is anything but healthy for our hair. The accompanying travails like an itchy flaky scalp, frizzy hair and a bunch of other hair problems are concerns we have to deal with. Here are few tips you can abide by to scale down your hair problems during this season.
Eat right: Eating the right kind of food, including protein, fresh fruits and vegetables. Like tomatoes, litchis, limes and pears gets a thumbs up. High in lycopenes and Vitamin C, they are great for hair. Milk and soya protein, too, boost the protein content of your diet. Drinking water is also extremely important.
Wash your hair regularly: The extra humidity in the air can cause dirt to accumulate on your scalp making the hair oily and limp. That’s why it’s advisable to wash your hair at least twice a week
Dry thoroughly: It’s extremely important to dry your hair thoroughly. Damp hair can cause the roots of your hair to rot and produce a bad smell. Also, it’s always better to let them dry naturally rather than using a hair dryer.
Professional hair treatment: Most of us spend a ton of money pampering our skin. But when it comes to hair, we hesitate to provide them with the same luxury. Avoid making this mistake this monsoon. It makes a lot of difference when you get your hair treated professionally. Just one sitting can take care of a whole host of problems for your hair like limpness, greasiness and hair fall. It is best to consult a dermatologist to rule out a fungal or other scalp infection.
Avoid styling: Stay away from harsh chemicals, colorants, hair sprays, gels and other hair products.
Avoid breakage: Use the right comb to untangle your hair – wide toothed combs with less static. To avoid breakage, comb your hair at the bottom and then start combing from the roots. Avoid tying wet hair.
