What is the first word that comes to your mind when you hear the word Monsoon? For most of it is hair fall. It is certainly the time of the year when you start looking for ways to keep your hair shiny and healthy. The rain and humidity leave your hair frizzy, dull and lifeless further leading to hair fall. How do you control it? Don’t fret, simply check out these simple steps to maintain healthy hair all throughout the season.
Drink Enough Water
Yes, you read it right. To prevent hair fall, it is important to drink enough water. Drinking at least 8 glasses of water helps in washing off the toxins from your body. These toxins in your body can further aggravate hair loss. Ensure that you drink filtered water and avoid drinking tap water for healthy hair.
Say No to Hair Styling
As much as you love straightening your hair and using all kinds of hair cream you can, you definitely must avoid hair styling at least during Monsoon. Try not to use hair serums or hair gels, they tend to make your tresses flat and greasy and lead to more hair fall. Stick to simple braids or ponytails for a simpler hairstyle.
When it rains outside, hot french fries, pakodas, samosas and other such fried items taste even better. But if you really want to prevent hair fall, you need to make sure that you avoid junk food and eat healthy food items. When there is a deficiency of some of the key ingredients in your system, hair fall takes place. Include fresh fruits, sprouts and leafy vegetables in your diet for healthy and strong hair.
Wash Hair Regularly
We all love to get wet in the rain, but sadly, our hair doesn’t. Rain water contains many chemical compounds which may damage your hair to quite an extent and further result in hair loss. To make sure your hair doesn’t bear the brunt, wash your hair at least three times a week. Say hello to happy and healthy hair.
Reduce Coffee Consumption
Drinking a lot of coffee results in dehydration, which further leads to hair loss. You can drink green tea or other herbal teas and prevent hair fall. You can also go for non-caffeinated drinks like a fruit or vegetable juice for healthier hair.
Oil Your Hair
Do not forget to oil your hair, it is one of the best ways to prevent hair fall. Try to give your hair a hot massage at least once a week and leave it overnight before washing your hair. Dry and coarse hair results in hair fall, oiling makes it soft and manageable.
