‘Hola Monsoon! Nice to see you’ — said no one who cares about their hair, ever. I mean, we love the rains. In fact, we couldn’t be more thankful for it — it’s officially chai-pakoda season y’all. But… let’s face it, the torrential rains aren’t exactly kind to your hair. The real culprit is excessive humidity, that causes all that hair damage — hair fall, breakage, frizz —way too many hair-raising issues to deal with. Before you lose some more strands stressing about the monsoon-hair battle, we have some effective monsoon hair care solutions to save your crowning glory from rainy days.
Here’s A Little Extra Help For Your Monsoon Hair Care
Now that we have your basics covered, here are a few other essentials for your monsoon hair care that can save you from a bad hair day:
1. Control Your Diet:
A good diet goes a long way, especially when it comes to healthy hair. During the rains incorporate foods rich in iron, proteins and omega-3 fatty acids. And, don’t forget to OD on water.
2. Protect Your Hair:
Needless to say, you can’t step out without a good quality umbrella and raincoat during monsoons. C’mon, they save your hair from the uninvited rain. No wet hair = no hair issues!
3. DIY Remedies:
Truth be told, finding a suitable hair product is like finding a suitable boyfriend. So, if you’re having a tough time finding the right one (we aren’t talking about the boy here), go the DIY way. Amla, Banana, Honey, Yogurt and Eggs are some of the best ingredients to pick from the kitchen and create your own shampoo, conditioner or hair mask.
4. Say No To Hair Ties:
You might think tying your carefully-straightened hair in the rains will keep it safe. This is us breaking that myth: ponytails and buns will only allow rain water to stay in your hair for longer. End result: Your hair will remain frizzy and limp.
5. Go Short:
The shorter the tresses, the lesser the hair problems. Monsoons is just the right time to go short. Firstly, you will look chic and cute-as-a-button, and secondly, it will save you from the hassle of maintaining long hair and hours spent drying wet strands.
6. Avoid Hair Stylers:
You might love your hair dryers and straighteners, but let’s face it, the heat is just not good for your hair. We suggest you rely on the hot towel method to keep your hair healthy in the rains.
