With the rain

comes hair rais­ing prob­lems like limp or frizzy hair, hair­fall and an itchy scalp. An­isha Fer­nan­des Tavares, se­nior stylist and makeup artiste from Nalini of Nalini & Yas­min Sa­lon, Mum­bai, gives you a five-point hair care rou­tine to keep your tresses soft, silky and stun­ning all sea­son long.

Use a mild, deep cleans­ing sham­poo to keep your hair and scalp clean. If us­ing a sul­phate-free sham­poo, opt for a dou­ble wash. Wash your hair at least twice a week, sham­poo­ing from the scalp to the tips for best re­sults. This helps avoid frizzy or dry hair as well as pre­vents fun­gal or bac­te­rial is­sues. An oil mas­sage is a must as it pro­vides mois­ture. Be sure to use a small amount of oil so that it can be rinsed out in one wash. Avoid over-oil­ing as it re­quires more sham­poo to re­move, which dries out the hair. In­clude more leafy veg­eta­bles, sprouts and fresh fruits in your diet; they pro­vide vi­tal nour­ish­ment for your hair. Yo­ghurt, which is rich in vi­ta­min D, helps cur­tail hair loss. Avoid us­ing hair irons or curl­ing rods too much in the rainy sea­son. As far as pos­si­ble, keep your hair dry. Be sure to carry an um­brella or hoodie when trav­el­ling. If you hair does get wet, wash and dry it as soon as pos­si­ble as rain­wa­ter is dirty and acidic.
