Is your hair feeling the monsoon blues, guys?
Here’s how to ban dull and sticky hair even as it pours
Acouple of hours on the road in the monsoon not only leaves one braving traffic jams and puddles, but also a lot of hair woes. It is tougher for men, because unlike girls, they may not be particular about regular hair care during the monsoon. From dandruff, stickiness to dull brittle hair, men face the worst of bad hair days during the rain.
Here’s a few hair care tip for men this monsoon:
1 Before you shampoo your hair, massage your scalp with curd. This prevents
dandruff, dryness and also prevents hair loss.
2 Use a mild shampoo. Shampoo your hair two-three times a week. This prevents fungal infection. It also helps to keep the scalp clean and prevents dryness.
3 To combat frizziness, use an anti-fizz conditioner to de-tangle your hair. Use the comb to spread the conditioner and rinse it with cold water. This adds shine to your cuticles.
Go easy on the hair styling part; avoid hair gels and oiling your hair. Although, you can oil your hair once in 15 days,
but regular oiling will attract dust and grime. Further, combined with the sweat, it can cause dandruff and scalp infections.
Avoid using hair sprays and hair dryers, as they will only lead to frizzy and brittle hair. Instead go for a hair spa or use a hair serum after washing your locks. Hair serum contains silicon, which provides a natural shine to your hair. Serum is an anti-humidity product and works well in the rainy season.
