Cold breeze, cloudy skies, soothing rains, the monsoon season brings so much. But not to forget, it also brings along excess humidity. Due to this, taking care of the hair becomes all the more difficult.
Let us see what hair issues the season causes, how the rain affects the hair, and what could be done to protect the hair during the monsoon.
Hair Problems During Monsoon
Not one, but during monsoons, you are likely to undergo multiple hair problems altogether, which include:
- Excessive hair fall,
- dry, dull, and frizzy hair,
- lice, and
- scalp itchiness and infections.
Apart from the increased humidity, rainwater is also a major factor that leads to hair damage.
How Does Rainwater Affect Hair?
Rainwater combines with the impurities, pollutants, and toxic particles present in the atmosphere, which results in acid rain. So, when hair is exposed to rainwater, the acidity strips the moisture from the hair, leaving the hair dull, rough, and frizzy. It harms the overall hair structure and weakens them.
When the scalp and hair get wet in the rain, the moisture weakens the roots and hair shafts, attracts dirt, and promotes bacteria breeding. Which thus, aggravates hair problems.
However, it does not mean you do not have to step out when it rains. Here are some hair care tips to protect your hair from damage.
Prevention and Protection
- Wash your hair immediately after getting wet in the rain.
- Follow a proper hair wash routine.
- Use a wide-toothed comb.
- Avoid making complicated hairstyles.
- Avoid heating your hair and using styling products.
- Use tea tree oil.
- Apply mild shampoo and conditioner.
- Do not tie and brush wet hair.
- Stay hydrated.
- Eat a protein and iron-rich diet.
- Dry your hair properly.
- Give an oil massage.
- Go for short hair.
