Rain is fun and joyful, but it is definitely not good for hair. A rain drench will make the hair frizzy, increases the chances of infection, results in dandruff and hair fall, etc. It is not the rain water that causes problem, but excess moisture, pollution and chemicals are the culprit. Hence, it is advised to avoid getting wet in rain. In case, you get wet, follow these tips to avoid hair damage.
Here Are 6 Simple Hair Care Tips To Follow After Rain Drench
A wet hair can harbor microbes and cause infection, so it is important to dry out the hair completely after drenching in rain. Wet hair, especially during monsoon might increase hair fall. Hence, drying will check infection as well as hair fall. You can towel dry or blow-dry it with low heat setting.
Getting wet during monsoon season might result in infection so cleansing the hair immediately after a rain drench will alleviate bacteria and make the hair less frizzy. Wash your hair right away using a shampoo, preferably herbal to eliminate microbes and toxins. You can also add some fresh neem leaves to your bath to remove microbes.
Humidity is high during monsoon season and this is not good for hair. Such a condition might make your hair frizzier. A good conditioner is the solution to avoid the hair from becoming wiry and curly. People blessed with natural curls must choose silicon-free conditioners. Some homemade conditioners such as egg and yogurt pack help keep your hair frizz free.
It is a general suggestion to avoid using too much chemical-based hair-care and styling products during monsoon, especially after a rain drench, cut down on hair styling products. Use of such products will buildup chemicals and damage the hair. They also increase moisture, which might result in accumulation of dirt and attract bacteria. Instead of styling products use herbal or homemade conditioners to control frizz.
Some messy yet cool hairstyles are the best technique to style your hair when you have no time for a hair wash. You can try different updo hairstyles or twisted ponytails or even a clean off-the-face hair styles with the wet hair. Such hairstyle will make you look well turned-out and stylish.
Selecting the right comb to untangle your hair when it is wet is important because brushing might result in hair breakage. A tight toothed comb would stretch the hair more, which would eventually result in split ends. A wide toothed comb is the best for combing wet hair because it will eliminate tangles easily and prevent damages without stretching the hair.
