Rainy season has officially started. Some studies have shown that rainwater may be harmful to our crowning glory. Each hair strand is comprised of long bundles of keratin proteins. Keratin proteins act as an external protective protein in the cuticle (the outer layer of a hair strand) and an internal structural protein in the cortex (the inner core of the hair strand that helps determine its strength).
The acidity of the rainwater may cause hair-related problems such as itchy scalp, brittle hair, dandruff and hair shedding.
These tips may help you protect yourself, especially your hair from being soaked wet by rainwater.
1. ALWAYS BRING YOUR MIGHTY UMBRELLA
Bad weather isn’t much of a problem if you have an umbrella. The device offers an instant shade from rain showers and protects your hair from being wet and frizzy.
2. SLICK UP-DO HAIR
A tousled or romantic up-do will get frizzier the wetter it gets, whereas a sleek style, particularly a lose ponytail, will survive the rain much better. You’re better off not washing it, but instead adding plenty of product to weight down the hair and prevent it from lifting up into flyaways.
3. RINSE YOUR HAIR AT HOME
But when the monsoon rains and thunderstorms have cornered you, and your hair is already wet from the heavy rainfall, immediately rinse your hair when you get home.
4. OPTIMIZE YOUR HAIR CARE ROUTINE
Use the right hair care products in order to maintain healthy hair and scalp and avoid hair loss. It is best to use a natural topical scalp lotion, herbal shampoo and herbal conditioner like Novuhair 3-in-1 pack. Novuhair Topical Scalp Lotion contains 19 natural ingredients that will help promote healthy hair and scalp, prevent excessive hair shedding, aid in stimulating hair growth and improve the overall cosmetic properties of your hair.
