How To Take Care of Hair During Rainy Season?

Monsoon season is like a refreshment after a long and tiring summer day. Rainy season gives us a sense of life and provides relief from the summer's oppressive heat.

While we rejoice as the rain pours, our skin and hair start struggling with the humidity after the rain. Your skin and body might still receive fantastic care from you, but the hair is frequently the most neglected.

It is well known that monsoon season can harm hair because of the sticky conditions brought on by high humidity. It also makes other issues, including dandruff and hair loss, more likely. Therefore, you must take the utmost care of your hair.

An effective hair care regimen can handle any seasonal hair problems. Here is what your monsoon haircare routine should entail if you're wondering how to pamper your hair throughout the rainy season.

Hair Problems During The Monsoon Season

During the monsoons, maintaining your hair may prove to be rather tedious. Nothing is worse than having your hair become frizzy, sticky, or moist, as these conditions can all result in hair loss.

1]. Hairfall:

  • Hairfall daily is natural. But, during the monsoon season, you may witness excessive hairfall.

  • Wet hair, which splits easily, frequently contributes to excessive hair loss.

  • Monsoons induce hair loss and breakage as it becomes wet because damp hair is fragile.

2]. Frizz:

  • The monsoon season brings gloomy weather. The weather can change at any time.

  • The weather can change quickly from being cosy and cool to very steamy.

  • This ongoing weather shift can cause your hair to become frizzy. In addition to looking dry and damaged, frizzy hair is more prone to hair loss.

3]. Scalp Infection:

  • The scalp is the area most impacted because of how sweat and dirt collect there.

  • Pollutant particles that accumulate on the scalp clog pores and infect the scalp, which leads to hair loss. Dandruff may additionally result from it.

7 Tips:

Here are a few things you can do to make your hair happy in the monsoon season.

1]. Hair Oiling

A thorough head massage using a hydrating oil will increase blood flow to the scalp and encourage hair growth. The scalp and hair will remain moisturised by it.

The best source of moisturising your hair during monsoon is coconut oil. Massage your scalp with lukewarm coconut oil.

This oil will give your scalp a protective coating that will protect your hair from dandruff and extreme hair fall.

Applying lukewarm coconut oil to the lengths of your hair will help rid your hair of frizz. If you are uncomfortable with oiling the strands of your hair, use a hair serum of your choice or make the DIY hair serum.

If you are doing a hair remedy, you can use the oil of that remedy. But if you wish to switch to coconut oil, you can do that.

Oil your hair before every wash. Keep the oil overnight or apply 2-3 hours before washing your hair.

2]. Head Washing

Washing your hair every alternate day or thrice a week is one of the best ways to care for your hair during the monsoon season.

If you have an oily scalp or get drenched in rain, washing your hair more often becomes crucial.

For those with short hair, using herbal shampoo daily will not do any harm.

Because you will wash your hair more often during monsoon, herbal shampoos are the best option.

3]. Conditioning

Many people are against conditioners as they can damage the hair. Using a conditioner thoughtfully during monsoon can do wonders for your hair.

But remember, do not apply conditioner on your scalp. I suggest pre-headwash conditioner. If you are afraid of using chemical-based conditioners, go for rice water.

Take 2-3 tablespoons of rice and wash them thoroughly. Put washed rice in one glass of fresh water and soak the rice for 1-2 hours.

Use this water as a pre-headwash or a post-headwash conditioner. All you have to do is rinse your hair with this water. It works for low, medium, and high porosity hair.

4]. Microfiber Towel

Monsoon season leads to excessive hairfall. It is time to switch to microfibre towels, it is a game-changing move.

Using microfiber towels can prevent the weakened cuticles that can result from vigorously massaging the hair with regular towels.

Additionally, regular towels can cause cuticle damage and stimulate natural oil release. The breaking of hair also increases.

Microfiber towels, however, have a built-in absorbency. Additionally, they are gentle, detangle, and dry hair without tangles.

5]. Leave In Conditioners

Another item you can add to your haircare regimen during monsoon season is leave-in conditioner. These conditioners improve the shine of the hair.

They also improve elasticity and prevent breakage by detangling and shaping the hair while reducing frizz.

You can prepare a leave-in conditioner at home. Follow these easy steps.

  • Take two tablespoons of aloe vera gel (flaxseed gel as a substitute).

  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of rosewater.

  • Add two tablespoons of argan oil.

  • Mix all the ingredients thoroughly. You can use a blender, as all the ingredients should mix well.

Your DIY leave-in conditioner is ready. Store the conditioner in a bottle.

How to use it?

Use it after a hair wash. Part your hair when partially dry and apply it to the lengths. Use your fingers to comb the conditioner thoroughly.

6]. Right Hair Accessories

DO NOT use tight hairpins, tic-tac hair clips, tight hairbands, or elastic hair ties. And this suggestion is not just for the rainy season, but for all the seasons.

If you use these accessories, you understand the pain that follows along with many hair strands.

Try switching to scrunchies and hair clutches (hair claw clips). These accessories are game-changers.

You will notice minimum or no hair fall and will be able to style your hair the way you like. There is a variety of scrunchies and clutches available in the market.

Look for the one that suits you the best and invest in the right one.

7]. Castor Oil Application

Many people notice receding hairline during monsoon. You can rectify it using castor oil and coconut oil.

All you have to do is store castor and coconut oil mix in a mascara bottle. Apply the oil on your hairline using the mascara wand.

You should not apply castor oil on your hair entirely, as castor oil is thick.

Besides all the tips and hair care, keep your hair comfortable. Keep your hair tied in a bun, braid, or whatever you like. Monsoon calls for extra care for your hair. So give your hair perfect monsoon care!
