The monsoon arrives following a long, sweltering summer. We are finally having a break from the despotic summer heat. Undoubtedly, monsoons are a source of joy for us, but they are also a significant source of scalp infections and hair issues. The three typical hair issues you may encounter during the monsoon are an oily scalp, greasy hair, severe dandruff, and itching. If you don’t do a proper treatment for hair right away, it may weaken your hair roots and result in monsoon hair fall, a severe hair loss condition marked by patchy scalp conditions. Because of the high air humidity, the hair also becomes frizzy. Keep your hair healthy by not letting the rainy season harm it. Enjoy the rain by following these five hair-care rules:
- During the monsoon, you will get caught in the rain and have damp hair. When the hair is wet, it is incredibly vulnerable to damage and breakage. Don’t pull your hair too hard and harm it. First, gently towel-dry your hair. Instead of rubbing your hair, squeeze it dry. After that, you can begin using a wide-toothed comb to comb your hair rather than a brush, which will result in less breakage.
- It’s common for rainwater to become trapped in your hair, causing your scalp pH to become imbalanced, leading to excessive sebum production, which is oily and greasy, attracting a variety of pathogens. Always thoroughly wash your hair after it comes in contact with rainwater using a mild shampoo appropriate for your hair type. Don’t forget to cover your head if you go outside in the rain.
- During the monsoon, keeping your scalp and hair dry is essential. Keep in mind that wet hair is the weakest type of hair. To minimize hair loss after washing, quickly dry your scalp. Do not tie your hair up when wet; let it naturally air dry! Remember that rainwater is filthy and acidic (has a pH of about 5.6), which are terrible for your hair. Use a soft microfiber towel to prevent hair loss because it quickly absorbs water and causes less friction with the hair. If you’re traveling during monsoon season, pack the necessary accessories like scarves, hats, and umbrellas.
- Oiling is the most important thing to do during the monsoon season because it keeps your hair and scalp moisturized and hydrated. Applying coconut oil is a natural conditioner and should be applied 15 to 20 minutes before shampoo. It reduces the amount of water your hair soaks up while being washed and makes your hair greasy. Oil-based scalp massages can help prevent frizzy, dry hair. Additionally, it is effective at reducing hair loss. Each week, you should oil your hair once or twice.
- You have to deal with frizz and breakage because it’s monsoon. When it comes to keeping your hair moisturized and nourished, a conditioner or hair mask can help. Choose a hair mask that works with your hair type and makes it firmer and smoother.
