Who doesn’t love the smell of the first rain, the cool breeze, and the drop in temperatures!? With all these pros in abundance, there is one big con – the effect it has on your hair. Hair care becomes a daunting task in the monsoon. Hair becomes frizzy, dry and lifeless. However, every day can be a good hair day with the following home remedies. WODROB has rounded up a few tried and tested home remedies for you to maintain your hair health:
- Apply a paste of two bananas and 1 tbsp. honey and leave it for about an hour. Wash it off with a mild, sulphate-free shampoo. This will help moisturize hair and keep it soft.
- Soak 3-4 spoons of methi (fenugreek) seeds overnight in water. Grind them and apply the paste on the scalp and massage. Wash and rinse hair after 30 mins with a mild, sulphate-free shampoo. You can also add methi seeds to an Ayurvedic or organic oil and use it in the same fashion. Methi is an excellent remedy and works wonders for your hair.
- Mix powdered camphor in an Ayurvedic or sulphate-free oil and apply this mixture to your hair and scalp. Leave it overnight and wash it off the next day with a mild, sulphate-free shampoo. This prevents dry and dull hair and moisturizes them.
- Make a paste of 1 tbsp. methi, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, 1 tbsp. oil, 1 tsp. saffron and 1 orange rind. Apply to the scalp and leave it on for about 20 minutes and cover your head with a towel. Wash and rinse hair after 30 mins with a mild, sulphate-free shampoo. This spa-like treatment will add life to your dull hair.
- Mix a 2 tbsp. of yoghurt with an egg and apply it as a conditioner. Keep it on for 15 mins and wash it off with a mild, sulphate-free shampoo. This paste is an excellent natural conditioner and makes the hair shiny and lustrous.
Here are some other daily tips to keep in mind for beautiful healthy hair:
- Avoid use of appliances like a hair dryer, hair straightener, curler, et al. during the monsoons.
- Do not use a brush on wet hair. Comb your hair before it dries off completely.
- Avoid using chemical conditioners during the monsoon.
- Consume a protein and iron-rich diet.
