Wash Off Rain Water
Never let rain water stay in your hair for long. Letting the water stay can lead to excessive tugging and itching when you comb. Even when you get drenched, it is advisable to take a shower immediately so that all the rain water is washed off and minimal harm is done to your hair. Use a mild shampoo to untug all the knots first and then wash your hair gently.

Dry Your Hair Well
Just washing your hair won’t help as you will need to dry it well too. Damp hair and humidity result in many unwanted menaces and you sure don’t want to give rise to any. Even when you are on-the-go, always carry a soft towel with you so that you can dry your hair just in case.

Use An Umbrella/ Jacket
Always step out of your house with an umbrella or jacket, this way you can avoid the rain showers from damaging your hair. The waterproof fabric will not let the rain water seep in and direct contact of rain water with your hair can be avoided. Maybe it’s a little extra weight that you may need to carry but it will definitely prove fruitful for your tresses.

Regular Oiling Of Hair
Opt for good hair oil, the one that seeps in your scalp thoroughly and settle in to the habit of a good hair massage once a week. The oil will make your follicles strong and will avoid hair fall and breakage. It will also keep hair frizz in check. You can oil your hair overnight and wash it next morning to welcome bouncy and healthy hair.

Though you may like to sip on coffee and binge on crunchy snacks during monsoon, cutting down on both is primeval. Instead eat sprouts, whole nuts, leafy vegetables and protein rich food to strengthen your hair. Drink green tea, milk or fruit juice instead of consuming coffee as excessive caffeine leads to dehydration which further results in hair loss.
Practice this and welcome glorious hair even in the monsoon 🙂
