It's the season of the pouring rain and as much as it is going to bring joy and relief to all of you, it will also bring some changes to your hair and skin. To specifically talk about monsoon hair care, we are here to give you a few tips on how to avoid hair breakage and damage if you get drenched in this season.
Here's what you can do to care for your hair this monsoon
- If you get drenched, cleanse yourself: If you come home soaking from the rain, make sure you instantly step in to take a full body shower. Rain water could be really dirty if you're walking under trees and building shades. All the dirt then accumulates in your hair. Hence, it is very important to cleanse your hair with a good shampoo and conditioner as soon as you get home. Once you are out of the shower, you can pat your wet hair dry or simply air dry them naturally. Only once the hair is dried, you should use a brush on it and untangle the knots.
- Use dry shampoo only in emergency cases: There will be days when you won't feel like taking a hair wash or simply won't have enough time for it. Only then use a dry shampoo if you have to look fresh while stepping out. But, you need to limit your dry shampoo use so that your hair doesn't suffer much. Always go back to hair washing once you get the time.
- Always have a scarf or bandana: When you know you have to step out, you must be prepared for an untimely shower from above. This also means you need to be prepared with things to keep you dry and safe. An umbrella wouldn't be enough and neither will a raincoat or windcheater do the job when it comes to hair care. Hence, always have a bandana or scarf to wrap around your hair. This won't just protect your hair but also your scalp from getting wet with dirty water.
- Hydration is important: It's going to be a humid season and your hair will need nourishment. You must provide it with oil-based serum and products that can deep condition your hair every 15 days. Also, drink loads of water and avoid too much coffee as it dehydrates you.
