Maintaining a healthy hair in monsoon important as change in weather cause increased hair fall...

Hair becomes greasy and rough during the monsoon due to the hot and humid weather.

 Due to the weather conditions, we tend to loose as much as 200 strands of hair a day, compared to 50 strands of hair in normal time. This becomes a factor of stress for both men and women. by following simple steps given below, we can ensure a healthy hair during the rainy season.

  • Oil your hair from root to end, to condition your hair. Oiling also helps to nourish the hair, reducing breakage and hair fall.
  • Eat protein rich diet, like pulses, eggs, etc to ensure the hair gets its daily requirement of protein.
  • Use a t-shirt to dry your hair – Instead of rubbing your hair vigorously with your towel that is only likely to make your hair frizzier, and increase hair fall, it is recommended that you use a cotton t-shirt to dry your hair. Squeeze water out of your hair gently, and wrap them with a t-shirt. In about ten minutes, remove the t-shirt, comb them, and let them air dry.
  • Wash away the rain, if you get your hair drenched in rain water. Rain water in cities are not always pure and may contain harmful chemicals present in the air.
  • Drink plenty of water, during the rain, we naturally tend to eat lot of snacks and junk foods, increased coffee/tea intake. Drinking water helps in control the adverse effect and keep us hydrated as coffeine dehydrates and increases hair fall.
