Monsoon has come and you have been waiting for this season from a very long time. But unfortunately some of us can’t take joy of pretty monsoon and avoid to play under rain due to increased hair fall in this season.
The most common problem during monsoon season is hair fall. Especially, in cities with high air pollution, toxic smog etc. All these lead to additional adverse effects on hair.
With first ever rain of a season, all those air pollutants mix with rain water and fall on earth’s surface. Also high-on-humidity weather is the main reason for hair breakage and fall. In this weather, your hair absorbs hydrogen, breaking di sulfide bonds leading to the smooth cuticle opening up and causing hair to be frizzy. So, just think before while having a rain bath.
However, you can take care of your hair by doing some simple and small DIY tips at your home.
1. Drink Plenty of Water
In this rainy season drink at least 2-3 ltr of water daily. Water helps clear off your body toxins. You may drink boiled water for best results.
2. Use Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe Vera can be used to treat dandruff, split ends and hair fall problems in any season. Massaging Aloe Vera gel into the scalp is also helpful.
3. Cut Caffeine
Excessive caffeine intake leads to dehydration which is another key reason for hair loss.
4. Oil & massage your hair
Oil your hair but massage gently to avoid breakage. Once or twice a week is good for nourishment, but doing it more often is not recommended, as your scalp is already oily due to the weather.
5. Shampoo Daily
You can wash and condition your hair as soon as you get home. Regular shampooing won’t lead to hair loss or dry scalp, provided you use a mild shampoo and apply liberal amount of conditioner after rinsing the shampoo.
6. Methi Seeds
Methi, also known as fenugreek, contains hormone antecedents which help revitalize damaged hair follicles. This makes hair strong and immune to damage.
7. Switch to healthy diet.
Add fresh fruits, leafy vegetables, wholegrains and protein-rich foods to your plate to tackle hair fall in the rainy season.
8. Keep your hair dry
Always gently dry your hair first and then comb it with a wide-toothed comb. Avoid using heated hair equipment.
9. Avoid Smoking:
Smoking cigarettes reduces the amount of blood that flows to the scalp and this causes a reduction in hair growth.
10. Physical activity
Make time for physical activity every day. Walking, gymming and swimming for 30 minutes a day helps balance hormonal levels, reduces stress levels besides reducing hair fall.
