The most famous sequence in Bollywood songs is the rainy season and wet locks. You must be able to recall at least five songs when you hear rain and dampness. While most of us would love to dance in the shower while listening to a rain song (feeling like a fantastic heroine), others might refrain from getting wet in the rain for various reasons. Some people may not want to get wet in the rain because they fear getting sick or it could cause skin problems. You might ask why I would not get drenched by the rain. My answer is that it could cause hair problems. I already have a lot of hair loss, and getting soaked may worsen things.
As our skin is affected by the monsoons in many ways, so are our hair and scalp. Rainwater can become acidic due to changes in the environment. This can damage our hair. This article will focus on various homemade packs that can help you tackle the monsoon with no hair problems or at least reduce the effects of any damage.
Honey and Milk
Honey is good for your skin and for your health. Honey contains antioxidants that provide nutrition for the hair and scalp. Honey stimulates hair growth. Milk is an excellent source of nutrients for the entire body! Milk is in our lives for hair, skin, or more robust bones. The milk also softens and nourishes your hair. It is suitable for dry hair because it gives it a natural shine and smooths it.
Add a few drops of milk based on the length of your hair. Apply it gently to your hair and scalp, paying particular attention to the ends. If you like, you can also gently massage your hair and scalp. This pack will nourish the scalp and clean it of all the dirt and pollution that stick to an oily scalp during the monsoon season. After 30 minutes, gently rinse the mask off with mild shampoo.
Lemons are used in many household recipes for weight loss, skincare, or cooking. This yellow-colored, sour fruit can be used to benefit our hair. It is rich in antioxidants and astringents, which help to tighten pores and cleanse the scalp. Lemon therapy is effective for those who suffer from hair loss.
Squeeze some lemon juice into a cup of hot water. After a bath, mix it up and then pour it on your hair and scalp. It will tighten the pores, reducing hair loss and cleaning your scalp. Close your eyes as you run the mixture. After 20-25 minutes, gently wash it off using cool water. You’ll have a clean scalp and less hair loss. The monsoon is over!
Fenugreek (also known as Methi)
Fenugreek seed can be a miracle for people who want to increase their hair volume or suffer from hair loss. Methi seeds are rich in compounds that promote hair growth and bounce hair. It manages hair loss and strengthens hair roots. Also, it prevents premature greying of hair!
You can use Methi for hair packs in many different ways. It is easiest to soak the seeds in water overnight. The following day, grind the seeds and add water to make them more liquid. If you want, you can also add yogurt. This paste can be applied to your hair and scalp. Let it sit for 20 minutes, then rinse it off. This pack will help reduce hair loss after being soaked in the rain.
Yogurt has been used for centuries to treat hair. We have all seen our parents apply yogurt to their scalp and hair. Yogurt contains minerals and nutrients that protect our hair and scalp from various hair problems, especially during monsoons. It shields us from the harmful effects of acidic rainwater and humidity. Apply yogurt on your scalp and gently massage it. Also, apply it to your hair. Rinse it off after a few minutes.
You may wonder why we use olive oil during the monsoon season when our scalps are already oily. Olive oil contains essential nutrients that help retain moisture on our scalp and add shine to hair.
Mix a tablespoon or two of olive oil with yogurt and massage gently over your scalp and hair. Allow it to sit for a few minutes, and then rinse. Your hair will be protected from the hair problems of the monsoon.
Egg whites are directly linked to hair care for most people. Egg whites have been used to eliminate frizzy, brittle hair for centuries. Even some shampoos available on the market contain egg white extracts. The egg white is rich in vitamins and nutrients that help to promote hair growth. They also control hair loss, give your hair a shine and soften the ends.
Take two eggs, separate the whites, and mix until you get a thick paste-like consistency. Applying it to your hair is best; let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse it off. Add a few drops of olive to the mixture. Rinse with a mild shampoo. This will protect you from the humidity and better nourish your skin during the monsoons. For those of you who are vegetarians, why not try the egg extract shampoo? You can also use mayonnaise to apply nutrients from an egg.
It’s an interesting ingredient to use in a hair mask. The antibacterial properties of onion clean your scalp better than anything else! Onion is the best way to clean your scalp after it has been soaked in rain. It contains compounds that promote blood circulation and better hair growth. The onion is suitable for washing away any infections that may have been found on your scalp.
Apply the juice from an onion of a size that is about average to your scalp. Massage gently. You can also cover your hair but should focus on the scalp. If you are worried about the smell, add a few drops of rosewater to onion juice. Allow it to sit for a few minutes, then rinse with a mild soap. The onion juice will clean and strengthen the tips of your hair.
Indian Gooseberry, aka Amla
Indian gooseberry is a fruit that has many benefits. Amla has been used for centuries to promote healthy hair and scalp. It can soften brittle hair, strengthen the roots of the hair, or prevent premature greying. The benefits are the same whether you eat it or use it. Amla hair packs are an excellent alternative for people who dislike eating amla.
Blend the fruit to extract its juice. Mix equal parts of coconut oil with lemon juice, and massage gently over the hair and scalp. Allow it to sit for a few minutes, then rinse with a mild soap. Check! Cleansing; check! Nutrients; check! Hair fall control; check, double check, triple check. !
Do you remember when you were young, and the monsoons caused you to be a complete nightmare because of a lice infestation? I scratched my scalp constantly during shower season while my mother combed my hair with the special lice comb. Neem leaves can be used to eliminate the lice that scratch your head. Neem leaves contain antibacterial properties, further cleaning the scalp after shampooing and enhancing hair growth.
After shampooing, you can use this hair treatment. Boil some neem leaves until the water level is half the original level. Pour it on your scalp and hair. Let it cool. Rinse it with warm water. This is an excellent therapy for your kids, especially during the monsoon season.
It’s even worse than an onion. Vinegar can help you eliminate the itchy scalp common during the monsoon season. Vinegar is suitable for itchy scalps and helps stimulate the scalp and untangle tangled hair.
Pour one teaspoon of vinegar into a mug full of water. Pour the vinegar over your hair as a final rinse after shampooing. After letting it sit for a few minutes, wash it with water. No more itchy scalp!
