The monsoon brings a welcome respite from the sweltering summer heat. Many people feel relieved that the rainy season has arrived because they no longer have to worry about heat strokes and sunburns caused by the harsh sun. However, the monsoon poses its own set of challenges. Following are some super duper tips n tricks on how to prevent hair fall in monsoon. The high humidity typical to this season can wreak havoc to your skin and hair. Hence, it is critical to nourish and keep your hair clear under such circumstances. Here are some of the best monsoon season tips to keep in mind for controlling hair fall.
In collaboration with The Channel 46, Ms Pooja Nagdev, Aromatherapist, Cosmetologist & Founder of Inatur, advises how to prevent hair fall and keep your locks healthy and lustrous.
1. Keep Your Hair As Dry As Possible
You might be tempted to go out in the rain during the monsoon. Or, you may have work and, hence, left with no option but to venture out. Rainwater, whether it’s a heavy downpour or a drizzle, is filthy and acidic. Protect your hair from rainwater as much as possible. Excess moisture in the scalp can cause infections, so wash your hair right away with shampoo.
2. Maintain A Proper Hair-Cleaning Routine
Wash your hair two to three times per week. During the monsoon, the scalp produces a lot of oil, making it easy for hair to become frizzy and undernourished. Use a mild anti-bacterial hair shampoo to hydrate your hair while also preventing bacterial and fungal infections.

3. Don’t Forget to Turn To Your Hair Conditioner
During the rainy season, a nutrient-rich conditioner is a must. This helps to prevent frizz and keeps the strands nourished. For added shine, apply conditioner only to the ends of your hair and rinse it out with cold water. If you use a leave-in conditioner, it will act as a protective layer for your hair, keeping it away from harm.
4. Use A Proper Comb
In the monsoon, it’s critical to use the right comb. A wide-tooth comb is the best tool for dealing with wet hair. It helps to detangle your hair while also preventing it from breaking and tearing. You can also use the comb to distribute the conditioner evenly throughout your hair.
5. Oil Your Hair At Least Once A Week
During this season, a good hair oil massage will do wonders for your hair. To moisturise and revitalise dry hair, apply oil to your hair once or twice a week. While oiling is important, please remember to not over massage. A gentle massage will keep hair healthy and smooth by preventing hair breakage and providing deep conditioning. Do wrap a steam towel after oiling.
6. Pay Attention To The Way You Do Your Hair
When it’s raining, don’t tie your hair up. Dirty rainwater can hibernate in your hair if your hair is tied. Hair becomes limp and frizzy as a result of this. If you must tie your hair, choose loose ponytails or buns only.

7. Follow A Protein & Omega-Rich Diet
The hair of your hair is influenced by your eating habits. Hair follicles can be strengthened and healthy hair growth can be promoted with the right diet. Consume protein-rich, iron-rich, and omega-3-fatty-acid-rich foods such as spinach, walnuts, mackerel, salmon, carrots, and so on. Caffeine and junk foods can dehydrate your hair and cause hair loss, so avoid them. Remember to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water.
8. Reduce Hair Length & Trim Your Hair Frequently
A haircut is a simple way to relieve the stress of hair care. This is the best time to cut your hair short if you’ve ever wanted to but was unsure. During the monsoon, short hair is easier to maintain and keep healthy.
9. Make Your Hair Water-Resistant
During the rainy season, invest in some high-quality waterproof jackets or umbrellas. Make sure you have these with you whenever you leave the house. This is the simplest way to keep your hair from getting wet while also protecting it from the unpredictable rain.
10. Experiment With Natural Remedies
Try your hand at making and applying hair masks at home by following do-it-yourself instructions. Ingredients from your kitchen can often be used to make organic shampoos and conditioners. These homemade concoctions are often free of the chemicals found in commercial hair care products.
