How to Get Rid Of Hair Fall & Other Common Hair Problems: Monsoon Hair CareGuest post by Sreeparna G.

Hello lovely people!

We ladies consider monsoon as the season for hair troubles. Almost everyone suffers from those woes somehow or other. In today’s post I have picked up four most common hair problems we often face in monsoon and included some easy-to-do home remedies to solve them. All these DIYs are tried and tested over the years and almost all ingredients are easily available in most Indian homes. So without further delay let’s begin.

1. Dull Hair

Problem: In monsoon often our hair becomes dull and lifeless mostly due to excessive humidity, grimy surroundings and polluted environment.

Here’s how to solve it

I. Take equal amounts of coconut oil, almond oil and castor oil in a bowl as per the length of your hair. Pop out the gel from a vitamin E capsule and add it to the mixture. Warm it up a little bit. Massage it to your scalp and hair for 5-7 minutes and let the oil stay in for 30 minutes. Wash your hair with a mild herbal shampoo and continue with conditioner and serum. This method is suitable for every type of hair. If you follow this once a week you will see notable changes in your hair texture in a few weeks.

II. Applying a hair mask once a fortnight is good for dull hair. It makes hair shiny and healthy. Here in this link you will find a few organic and chemical free DIY masks to try at home.

2. Hair Fall

Problem: Perhaps excessive hairfall is the most common hair worry in monsoon. Although the main reasons behind hair fall and hair thinning are anaemia, stress, tension, dandruff, ailment etc; everyone complains about losing more hair in rainy season. Due to surplus humidity in the air, the roots of our hair never get the chance to dry off fully. This leads to fungal and bacterial growth in the scalp and we start losing more hair strands.   

Here’s how to solve it

I. Take three tablespoons of almond or coconut oil in a bowl. Add a little (half a teaspoon each) amla, ritha, methi and shikakai powder to it and mix well. Lightly message this mixture to your scalp in circular movements. This will help to increase blood circulation in your scalp. Let the concoction sit in your hair for an hour. Finally wash your hair with a mild herbal shampoo.

II. Boil 4-5 dried amla and 3-4 hibiscus buds in coconut oil. When the concoction becomes dark in colour stain it. Wait until it becomes lukewarm. Apply it to your scalp and hair and massage with light hands. Wash your hair after 30 minutes. Use it thrice a week. 

3. Dandruff

Problem: Dandruff or seborrheic dermatitis and itchy scalp that we face in monsoon are the result of damp and dirty hair and scalp. In this problem our scalp skin dies off prematurely and starts shedding dead skin. This problem is majorly caused by a yeast-like bacteria malassezia.

Here’s how to solve it

I. Cleanse your scalp thoroughly with a mild anti-dandruff shampoo. Take two teaspoon lemon juice and dilute it with equal amount of water to maintain the ph balance of the scalp. Apply it to your scalp before shampoo with a cotton ball and let it absorb for 5 minutes. Do it before every time you shampoo your hair. Instead of lemon juice, onion juice can also be used as it is rich in sulphur. In this case dilution of the juice is not required.

II. Take 4-5 tablespoon henna and 2-3 spoon curd to make a thick hair pack. Apply it thoroughly on scalp and hair and let it stay for an hour and then wash it with a baby shampoo. Repeat after a month.

4. Smelly Hair

Problem: In monsoon we often find our hair smelling fowl due to wetness and accumulated sweat.    

Here’s how to solve it

I. Mix half a cup rose water and 3 tablespoon lemon juice or a few drops of eau-de-cologne in 1 litre of water. Use it as a final rinse for your hair after washing.

II. If you want your hair to smell good every time, sprinkle some eau-de-cologne in a handkerchief and wrap your comb with it. You can also use any essential oil (lavender, lemon, mint or rosemary) in place of it.

That was all for today friends! Try the DIYs at home. Hope those will help you to cater all your hair worries of this monsoon. Don’t forget to share your thoughts and suggestions. Bye!
