In India, monsoon is a celebration because getting a break from the heat in summer is a bliss and that is rejoicing. But, monsoon is the trickiest in terms of hair care. The sudden arrival of monsoon can leave you confused for the way you would want to keep your hair from frizzing away. You would obviously want to avoid soaking in the rain in order to keep your hair protected, but that is something near to impossible to deal with as we end up getting drenched in the rain every once in a while. Try these hair care tips that would let you enjoy the magic of monsoon.
Hair Care for the Rainy Weather x BBlunt India
USE THE CORRECT SHAMPOO
You must keep your hair and scalp clean. Apart from hair fall, your hair might look dull and lifeless in this season. Your shampoo is the only fixer for these hair problems, so be careful while choosing one. Your hair needs a delicate hair care routine this season, so I would suggest for you to aim for a mild shampoo. If your hair is exposed to rainwater every day, make sure you shampoo them regularly. This will help in keeping your hair nourished and prevent them from breakage to an extent.
OIL YOUR HAIR REGULARLY
I am a big believer of oiling my hair regularly in all the seasons but when it comes to monsoon, there is no way you can negotiate with this fact, but be careful! Do not oil your hair very often as you will tend to over shampoo which will damage you hair. Oil your hair by gently massaging to avoid breakage. Oiling once or twice a week is a good nourishment because your scalp is already oily due to the weather.
FOLLOW THE RIGHT HAIR WASH ROUTINE
- The water used to wash your hair should be of medium temperature.
- Make sure your hair is completely soaked wet before you apply the shampoo.
- Shampoo into the scalp using your fingertips and circulate gently.
- Make sure you rinse of your shampoo completely.
- When you condition your hair, make sure you just use it for the lengths and not scalp. Do not over use it. Using a comb for spreading conditioner is a good idea.
- Rinse off with cold water (highly recommended).
USE THE RIGHT COMB
The extra moisture in this weather leaves your hair in a difficult state which makes it even more difficult to comb them. Using a wide tooth comb is suggested as they would help in detangling the hair knots with less breakage. The teasing comb would stress on the roots while you try using them this season, so try avoiding them.
KEEP YOUR HAIR DRY
This is a must do hair mantra this season. Keep your hair as dry as you possibly can. Get this; your hair breakage is 200 times more in monsoon than it is on any regular day. It goes without saying that you need to keep your hair dry all the time. Also, drying it the right way is important. Use a microfiber towel for drying. If blow drying, then opt for a vented hair brush.
SAY YES TO CONDITIONER
Well yes, we always use a conditioner! But this season, do not skip conditioning under any circumstances. Your hair becomes frizzy and weak due to the excessive humidity around. Protect them as much as you can, so that they remain smooth and soft.
GO FOR A HOLISTIC DIET
You become what you eat! Yes indeed. Your diet plays a very important role here. Add protein to your diet this season. It is a known fact that protein plays an important role in strengthening your hair apart from being the building blocks of yours body. Intake of vitamin E and vitamin D along with fatty acids is highly recommended. Walnut, curd, spinach, fish are all good sources of the above mentioned vitamins to name a few.
INDULGE WITH THE RIGHT HAIR STYLING PRODUCTS
Now, your hair speaks for your style. So, the way you style your hair is an important factor. But this season, the excessive humidity is doing enough damage to your hair. You do not need any added styling products that leave your hair greasy. Using hair styling products can lead to excessive hair fall, itchy scalp and dandruff too. We obviously don’t want that. So, do no harm to your hair and be careful with what you pick. My pick is BBlunt for the monsoon.
