Top four monsoon hair care tips

After a sweltering summer heat, the monsoon has finally arrived. We all early wait for this season of the year to celebrate the rains, either by staying cosy at home sipping on a hot cup of coffee or by taking a walk in the drizzle. It is also nice to have a bit of fun this monsoon, but make sure you give your hair the extra care it needs.

The pleasant showers not only lead to a few common health ailments but they can even cause havoc for your hair, if you do not take proper care.  

In this article, we give you a rundown of top four hair care tips:

•    Apply oil to your hair- One of the most essential steps for a good hair care routine in the rainy season is to apply oil to your hair on a regular basis. One of the problems that most of us face during monsoon is hair fall, hence in order to keep this problem under control, apply coconut or olive oil and massage your scalp. Leave the oil for about an hour and rinse it off with a mild, chemical free shampoo.

•    Conditioner is a must- A key rule to remember every time you wash your hair is to apply a conditioner. Conditioner protects your hair from the damage caused by rain water. It will also keep your hair well hydrated and smooth. Put conditioner only to your hair strands. Applying it to your scalp increases oil production and reduces hair growth. Once you apply to your hair strands, leave it on for a couple of minutes and rinse it off with cold water.

•    Eat nutritious food- Besides applying shampoo and conditioner, it also vital to eat nutritious food for a healthy hair growth. Foods high in protein, iron and Omega 3 fatty acids like Salmon, eggs, avocados, spinach are very essential for both hair and skin.  

•    Choose the right comb- Wide-toothed comb is the best one to choose for all hair types. A wide comb helps you to easily detangling your tresses.
