How do I tackle frequent hair fall during monsoon?

Hair fall is common during monsoon. The moisture and humidity levels are very high and one’s scalp is often damp. This is a breeding ground for infections. The most important step is to have a clean and fresh scalp, so it has room to breathe. I recommend a shampoo with tea tree oil as well as zinc pyrithone, which is antibacterial. This helps to keep away any bacteria or external aggressor that may try to attack your scalp or hair. Post-shampooing, a conditioner plays the important part of sealing the cuticle/top layer of the hair so that it looks smooth and shiny. Frizz during the monsoon months is a lot so we recommend using a moisturising conditioner, which will make your hair smoother and manageable. Post shampooing and conditioning, it is protected with all the goodness the ingredients have to offer.

Here’s how:

• Your hair is bound to get wet during monsoon. Always rinse off the rainwater as it is loaded with pollutants and it could affect your hair and scalp.

• Never tie hair when it is wet. A damn scalp is a breeding ground for infections. Always let your hair dry before tying it.

• Try using a scarf or headband to protect your hair from the harsh rain and winds.

What type of hair products do I use in this season?
