New Dellhi, July 19 (IANS) Humidity can take a toll on your tresses during the monsoon season, bringing on issues like dandruff, hair fall and dryness. Ensure you use limited hair products and keep your mane tied, says an expert.
Bharti Taneja, aesthetician, cosmetologist and Founder-director of ALPS Beauty Academy and Group, has shared a few tips to counter hair troubles:
* Using too many products for hair is not recommended. They may cause dandruff and hair fall during damp weather. One should indulge in regular hair washes with a mild, medicated and organic shampoo, to do away with hair problems. Just apply anti-humidifying sprays to protect your mane from humidity by sealing your cuticles.
* If you could not save yourself from the downpour and end up with wet tresses, wash hair immediately as the dirty water may again cause infections as well as hair-fall.
* Do not leave your hair loose or open as they can get oily after mingling with the rain water along with the sweat, making you feel tacky.
In monsoon, be sure to tie your tresses in messy, high-rise buns that are in trend these days. Accessorise with colourful hats, caps and bandanas to add a dash of colour and style.
* For re-infusing energy into your dry, damaged and limp hair of rainy season, you can apply a nourishing homemade hair mask.
Prepare a powder of dried neem leaves by grinding them; now add egg and mayonnaise to it. Apply this preparation to your hair and leave it to stay for few hours. Wash-off to reveal conditioned, sparkling tresses that flow with health.
Custom-made for rainy season, neem included in the pack will protect your mane from infections, whereas the protein content of the egg will strengthen it from root to tips. The much-needed shine will be endowed to hair through mayonnaise.
