Monsoon brings with it humidity which makes your scalp greasy and attracts dirt thus resulting into dandruff, itchiness and a smelly scalp. Scalp odour can be quite embarrassing and frequent hair wash is not the solution, especially during monsoon when the humidity won’t let your hair dry naturally for a long time. However, we have a few solutions that will help you tackle this problem with ease. Read on to find out...
- Deep cleansing shampoo
- Keep your scalp dry
- Get protein treatments
- Reduce the use of styling products
- Stay hydrated
Deep cleansing shampoo
Smelly scalp, fungal and bacterial infections are common during monsoon. To prevent this, ensure you wash and rinse your hair thoroughly with a deep cleansing shampoo. A hair cleanser that comes packed with the goodness of herbal extracts like amla, bhringaraj and shikakai such as the Lever Ayush Thick & Long Growth Shikakai Shampoo is ideal during this season.
Keep your scalp dry
Dampness is an inevitable problem in the rainy season and humidity further delays the drying process. If your hair gets wet in the rain make sure you use a mild cleanser to wash our hair and then completely dry your hair and scalp before tying it.
Get protein treatments
Hair spas and regular protein treatments lock moisture into hair strands and keep them frizz free. Ensure that you don’t miss out on your regular hair spa appointments at the Lakmé Salon. This will keep your hair and scalp healthy and fresh.
Reduce the use of styling products
Heat styling tools, hair sprays and styling gels can be quite damaging to your mane in monsoon. The former attracts dirt and bacteria leading to dandruff and a greasy scalp, while the latter can lead to itchiness and scalp odour. Therefore reduce the use of hair styling tools and products during the gloomy weather.
Even though it’s pouring outside your body needs to stay hydrated to function properly and stay healthy. Drink at least 7-8 glasses of water daily and avoid caffeine. Excessive caffeine intake can increase body temperature thereby producing more sweat and oil on your scalp.
