Monsoon season is knocking at the door all across India and surrounding countries. While the rainy season provides relief from heat waves and sunstroke, it also brings a few issues related to our wellness and daily life concerns. One such issue associated with the rainy season is proper hair care during Monsoon.

If we don't take appropriate majors to tackle with rainy season related challenges our hair may get damaged badly and even it may trigger a permanent problem like heavy hair -fall or acute dandruff or lice problems.

During rainy season following issues are most likely to appear:

  • Hair may get more oily . Simple reason behind this phenomena is that during monsoon season weather gets changed suddenly and humidity gets rise and same time wetness is spread all around ambience. Due to these factors our oil glands gets triggered and they start additional secretion of oil from hair roots and glands .To manage this problem it takes few steps like less exposure to the rain water ,using external hair oil wisely and judging hair type properly.
  • Scalp may get itchy and hydrated. It happens due to the deposition of oil ,dirt and dead cells .These all things are responsible to make scalp itchy and hydrated, therefore avoiding such situations is advised during rainy season.
