anisha fernandes tavares helps you keep your hair healthy and gorgeous during the monsoon.
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.
