As the season changes, we are faced with a new set of skin and hair problems. While you may be enjoying the relief monsoon has brought after the scorching summer months, your hair doesn’t feel the same way. The high-on-humidity weather not only makes your hair frizzy but also causes hair fall.
There are several reasons why you may be facing hair fall; the most common being — the presence of environmental pollutants in rainwater that leads to scalp infection, weakening of the roots and eventually hair fall. Here are a few tips you should follow to prevent hair fall this monsoon.
- Wash away rainwater
- Use a microfiber towel
- Don’t skip conditioner
- Get regular hot oil massages
- Cut down on caffeine
Wash away rainwater
Whether you got drenched in the rain because you forgot your umbrella or just wanted to re-live your childhood, don’t forget to wash your hair afterwards. Getting drenched in the rain will make your scalp sticky and sweaty because of all the pollutants mixed in the rainwater. Therefore, it is important to wash your tresses using a mild shampoo like the Dove Hair Fall Rescue, which will nourish your hair and help reduce hair fall caused due to breakage.
Use a microfiber towel
Hair takes longer to dry naturally during monsoon, but rubbing your hair to remove excess water will only cause the fragile hair to break and fall. Instead, use a microfiber towel or cotton t-shirt to soak the excess water. It will cause minimum friction thereby preventing frizz and hair fall.
Don’t skip conditioner
Skipping conditioner is the worst hair care mistake you can make during monsoon. Your hair needs a lot more nourishment to fight the frizz during this time of the year. Use a conditioner from the same brand and range as your shampoo, distribute the Dove Hair Fall Rescue Conditioner evenly over the length and tips of your hair and wash off after a few minutes with cold water for extra shine.
Get regular hot oil massages
Oiling your hair is a must during monsoon. However, be gentle while massaging your scalp be gentle to avoid breakage. No matter how dry your hair and scalp are, massage your hair oily once or twice a week as your scalp will already be oily due to the humid weather.
Cut down on caffeine
This might be a little hard to follow. I mean, how do you survive monsoon without sitting by the window and sipping coffee? We are not asking you to give it up completely; instead, just reduce your intake as excessive caffeine leads to dehydration which is a key reason for hair fall.
