Monsoon is a beautiful time. The joy of sipping a hot cup of coffee, munching on pakoras while reading a book and listening to the sound of rain drops is magical. Also, the monsoon is known to be a time of the year when the moisture level in the air is high. As a result, it creates havoc on our hair. During monsoons, the hair turns limp and lose their bounce & sheen. That’s not all, many people also complain of excessive hair loss during this period.
Here are the top hair care mistakes which you must avoid to keep the hair fall under control and make your hair healthy.
Washing Hair Daily
During the sultry summer months, we can wash our hair daily to get rid of the grime and dirt accumulated on it. During the rains, it is advisable not to wash hair on a daily basis as it will rip off the natural oil on the hair and make them look dry and dull. This is the best time to use a dry shampoo to get rid of the dirt and not lose the natural oils.
Not Choosing Conditioner
It is important to apply a dollop of conditioner on your hair post shampoo. However, during rains, it is important to ensure that you apply conditioner only in small quantity as it will weigh down your hair and make them limp. Also, take great care in choosing a conditioner that is not too oily in nature.
Not Using A Serum
If you were wondering about trying out a hair serum, then now is the right time. A hair serum is a perfect solution to keep your hair bouncy and shiny during the rains. Ditch the conditioner and say hello to this hair serum. It would take care of the fizz without making it limp.
Overnight Oil Treatments
We all know that the oils are enriched with nutrients that are beneficial for our hair and their growth. Most of us prefer to apply hot oil on our scalp and leave it overnight for best results. Though, it is beneficial, leaving hair oil for too long can cause the hair to go limp instantly. You will actually have a tough time shampooing it off. The best way to deal with this situation is to apply hair oil an hour before you wash your hair.
Most of us will confess to the fact that we use a towel to dry our hair. Towel causes friction and adds frizz to the hair strands. The best way to combat this is to use an old T-shirt to dry your hair, which is soft enough to not cause any harm to the hair.
Styling Wet Hair
In order to style your hair, you need to start the process when it is wet. But, combing or styling wet hair leads to hair loss. So, try and avoid excessive hair styling during this period.
Use Of Hairspray
Hairsprays are known to contain a high amount of alcohol that makes the hair dryer. In case, you are using a hair spray, ensure you use it after styling your hair rather than at the start.
Tying Wet Hair
This is another grave mistake that we must avoid. Tying wet hair leads to hair breakage. So try and wait till the hair is dry enough to tie it.
These are a few grave mistakes that you must avoid to sport great hair during monsoon.
