Protect Your Hair by Covering
One thing you can’t escape in the rainy season is rainwater itself. Even if you are not a rainy person you still have to go outside for daily chores. And in one way or the other, you have to deal with it. Your hair is probably more sensitive to rain than you could ever be.

Cover your hair properly to avoid excessive dryness and tangles.
Hair Wash Routine
Oily Scalp with greasy hair, severe dandruff, and itchiness are the most common hair problems you can experience during monsoon. If you don’t wash your hair properly it can lead to other microbial infections that weaken your hair roots and cause severe hair loss. To avoid this, make sure you maintain your hair hygiene by sticking to Hair Washing Routine. Clean your hair properly with Shampoo & conditioner so that there is no residue left in your hair scalp.
Make it mandatory to wash your hair when your hair comes in direct contact with rainwater because if not dealt with properly it will cause greasiness and dullness to your hair.
Dry your hair Properly!
With increased humidity levels in the air, you have to face frizzy hair problems. Using blow-dryers and heating tools make it worse for you. Our hair experts suggest using a soft cotton towel to squeeze out the water from your hair after washing. After that, make sure to let them air dry before heading to work.
Go easy with Styling!
During monsoon, your hair is already sensitive to increased humidity levels in the air, making it prone to breakage. Excessive Use of heat and styling products can damage your hair. Tie your hair to avoid breakage and fizziness. Our hairstylists suggest women go for minimal hairstyles for daily routine in monsoon. You can go for a tight bun, high ponytail, or short braid according to the length of your hair.
Use wide-tooth comb
It is better to use a wide-toothed comb for your hair, especially when it is wet. The hair is weak at the roots and prone to breakage when it is wet. Combing gently with a wide-tooth comb will help detangle your hair easily, thus reducing hair fall.
