New Delhi: Monsoons never fail to bring us joy. However it also comes with loads of scalp infections and hair problems, right? We are here to help you escape the pain point. Here are some natural and essential hair care tips you need for the rainy season.
Keep Your Hair Dry
One of the useful and straightforward hair care tips is to keep your scalp dry during the monsoon. Remember that rainwater is dirty and acidic (has a pH of about 5.6) which is very bad for your hair. Use a soft microfiber towel that absorbs water rapidly and reduces friction between the hair and the towel, consequently reducing hair fall.
Apply Coconut Oil
Applying coconut oil 15 minutes before shampoo helps in preconditioning your hair. A pre-shampoo treatment with coconut oil makes hair greasy and lessens the water your hair soaks up during washing. It also deals with scalp problems in men and women.
Have a Proper Diet
Diet plays a significant role in keeping your hair healthy. What you eat decides the quality of your hair. Add protein-rich food like eggs, walnuts, dairy products, and whole grains along with green vegetables to your regular diet as they provide shine to your hair. And berries, nuts, spinach, and sweet potatoes are some of the best food for hair growth.
Pick a Right Comb
Do not comb your wet hair immediately as it is the weakest then. Choose the right comb (wide-tooth), so it can easily detangle your hair. Make sure the teeth of the comb have enough space in between so that the hair does not break while combing. Also, sharing of combs must be avoided to prevent fungal infections.
Neem and Turmeric Paste
To get rid of dandruff (fungal infection) in the monsoon season, the application of turmeric and neem paste is an excellent option. Neem and turmeric, both possess antimicrobial, anti-fungal, antiseptic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties which make them a perfect choice to treat dandruff. Moreover, both are also rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants which make your hair and scalp healthy. It is the best and natural way to get rid of dandruff.
