Useful tips for hair care this wet season
Summer is about to end.
And now we are starting to experience occasional rains that relieve us from the scorching heat.
But while we enjoy the cooler weather, let’s not forget to give our body, especially our hair, the extra care it needs as well.
If you’re not careful, the rain can take away the shine from your hair and leave it limp, frizzy and heavy.
Here are some tips that will help you manage your unruly hair:
Keep your scalp clean
During the rainy season, expect high oil secretion on the scalp which can make your hair look flat at the roots and attract more dust and dirt.
Not only that, the change in weather can also trigger dandruff. Yikes!
To ensure that your hair remains healthy, smooth and manageable, it is essential to wash it thoroughly and regularly with anti-bacterial shampoos and / or cleansers.
Use the right conditioner
Humid air can make your hair flat and greasy, and using all the conditions available at home won’t do you any good.
It will only make your hair sticky and heavy.
What you can do is use a light conditioner that will give your hair the hydration it needs. It can even act as a deodorant to keep your hair fragrant.
Comb your hair properly
The presence of water and moisture in the air can weaken your hair.
But you can fix the problem.
Choose a wide tooth comb instead of a brush to easily detangle your hair. This type of comb is less invasive and will ensure that your hair does not break or get damaged.
Cut your hair
One way to avoid hair breakage during the rainy season is to cut your hair and keep it short.
Cutting your hair will not only give you a new look, but will also help you get rid of split ends.
Keeping it short will also reduce problems with hair loss, as you won’t be putting pressure on the roots when trying to manage that already very long hair.
Wrap your hair
Each of us is encouraged to stay at home due to the pandemic.
But in the event that you need to get out of the house for a very important run, be sure to take extra precautions to protect your hair as well.
Wear hoodies, scarves, or caps to keep your hair covered and dry. It will also help to minimize the presence of moisture on your hair.
