Hair Care for this Monsoon


The undying urge of dancing in the rains is what we have all went through on our way to the office or college. Some do it, while some stare and call the others who indulge, a silly move.

You cannot deny that there’s nothing as pleasing to the eye as a kid who doesn’t care and goes for the muck filled pothole we all avoid. There’s no harm in being that kid unless you know how to take care of your hair which is of utmost importance during this season.

Monsoon, sandwiched between the heat and stickiness of summer and the dryness of winter, is generally ignored when it comes to hair care. Hair which gets subjected to the monsoon rains is affected badly because of environmental pollutants and dust particles present in the atmosphere. This spells death for the hair and hair comes out in clumps in our hands. Try to prevent tangles and wet and messy hair. The following tips will help you tide through the monsoon season well:

1) No matter how much trouble you take to keep your head dry, a heavy shower is sure to leave you soaking. Proper drying of hair goes a long way to help minimize the damage from excessive wetting of hair. Also, avoid rough back-and-forth motions if you prefer drying your hair with a towel. It is recommended that you neither leave your hair wet nor tie it while it is still wet. While combing wet hair make sure using a wide toothed wooden comb. The uniquely designed Richfeel wooden comb will minimize the breakage while detangling your hair smoothly.

2) Choose a hairstyle that does minimum damage. It’s known, short hair is easier to maintain in the rains but select a style than can bounce back into place easily after being wet. Avoid hairstyles that require your hair to be straightened, crimped or curled since the high levels of humidity in the air will make the hair go limp.

3) Hair sprays and gels are a big NO as they contain lacquers and gums which can stick to the scalp and cause dandruff. Instead, protect your hair with a nourishing serum. The Richfeel Quinoa Hair Repair serum works best to protect and repair damaged hair too.

4) Finally, protect your hair with a raincoat or an umbrella. No matter how much a rain dance might sound enticing, it could spell trouble for your hair in the long run.

It’s relatively easy to take care of your hair provided you’re aware of the right steps. Drive away the monsoon blues with these pro tips and hair care this monsoon should be as easy as falling off a log.
