The monsoon season brings plenty of joy with its earthy smells, tiny droplets, and greenery. While we enjoy our time soaking in all the goods given by nature during this season, we should try to take the best care of our bodies. Hair problems are a common issue faced by people during the rainy season. Do you know what causes this phenomenon to occur during monsoon?
In Ayurveda, our hair and scalp-related problems are due to the imbalance of Vata dosha. Vata is high during summer and aggravates during monsoon due to heat and humidity. Alongside the imbalance of Vata, external environmental changes also affect your hair health. Here are some tips to help you look after your hair this monsoon.
Oiling your hair
Although it might sound untrue, oiling your hair is a good solution for the problem of hair fall and excessive dandruff. Regular oiling and massaging your scalp with warm oil can help you fight the problem of dandruff and retain the moisture in your hair. You can add oils such as Bhringraj, Methi, Amla, and Keshya to your hair regime to help your hair health.
Washing hair is compulsory after the rain
Never skip washing your hair after you get wet in the rain. Rainwater contains acid that can imbalance the pH of your scalp. This imbalance can cause hair fall, dryness, and dull hair. It can also cause excessive sebum on your scalp leading to poor hair health. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo to keep it clean and balance the pH levels.
Avoid Heat styling
Avoid using heat styling tools on your hair during the season because excessive heat makes your hair dry and frizzy. We know it might get tempting to use these tools to make your hair manageable, so try embracing natural hairstyles and tie your hair in loose buns or braids to keep them safe from water and frizz. Allow your hair to dry naturally whenever possible.
Use herbal shampoos
Avoid harsh chemical-based shampoos that might strip away the natural oils from your scalp. Instead, wash your hair regularly with mild herbal shampoo or diluted apple cider vinegar to keep it clean. Alongside shampoos, you can use herbal hair masks to keep your hair healthy and nourished during the season.
Keep a balanced Diet.
Try to keep your diet as balanced as possible. Avoid eating oily and crispy foods as they intensify hair problems. Eat a rich diet, including fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. Also, add essential herbs like amla, brahmi, and bhringraj into your diet as they promote hair health.
Taking care of your hair doesn’t need to be taxing. Following a proper routine, staying hydrated, and managing stress levels can help your hair thrive during the rainy season.
