Rains are a difficult time to keep your hair, in a healthy and shiny state. Excessive humidity and sudden downpours in polluted air can make your hair go dull and life less. If proper care is not taken, then it can lead to the much dreaded and unwanted dandruff in your hair. So, the question arises as to how we can, survive this monsoon with our hair still being our defining character.
Fret not! Your friend and guide, Mr. Bro is here with an easy hair care regimen which is better than any other hair care therapy for the rains.
The age old grandma’s nourishment formula is still the most effective. Gently massage your scalp with oil once or twice a week. Take out time from your busy schedule and indulge in a relaxing hot oil massage. The massaging fingers inculcate proper blood circulation in your head and bring peace and calm to your mind. You instantly feel like taking a good night’s sleep. Men with oily scalp can opt for light almond oil while coconut and mustard oil can be used for dry scalp. Add a drop of any essential oil of your choice for a calming effect. Leave the applied oil, overnight for your scalp to absorb the essential vitamins and to remove the dryness from the hair. Wash it off the next day and say hello to a nice soft and frizz free hair.
Rainwater is infused with pollutants in the air and should be washed off with mild, water-based shampoo. Increased humidity can make your scalp oily, but avoid washing your hair too often. It deprives you from natural oils, making your hair look dull and lifeless. Mr. Bro suggests you to use a mild shampoo around twice a week for cleaner and well-groomed hair.
Men are often guilty of going through the process of washing and cleaning without the use of a conditioner and then face the brunt of unruly hair. A creamy, nourishing, water-based conditioner fights the frizz that rain showers create and locks in moisture to strengthen the strands against breakage. Always apply conditioner on your hair and not inner scalp, leave it on for 2-3 minutes and wash it off with cold water. Some extra love and care can help you keep your hair game on point this season.
Dry the right way
Your hair is most susceptible to breakage when it is wet. Never leave wet hair unattended. It is essential to dry your hair because if you don’t, rainwater residues get in to action and damage your hair by making it immensely dry. You should take a soft microfiber towel and wipe it gently with minimal friction between the towel and your hair, thus reducing breakage. The soft towel absorbs water better and keeps your hair neat and clean.
Maintaining a holistic diet during the monsoon is imperative. Cut down on junks and stop excessive consumption of caffeine as it dehydrates the body and increases hair fall. Increase your intake of fresh leafy vegetables, water, whole grains, and proteins in your diet for a healthy living. After all, we are what we eat, and our food directly impacts the quality of our hair and skin.
