Is It Normal To Experience Hair Fall During The Monsoon Season?
The monsoons have finally returned after a long, hot, blazing summer! While all you want to do is sip some warm delicious tea, jump into a puddle with your umbrella and enjoy this refreshing season to the fullest, the negative effects of monsoons on your hair can certainly bring you back from this paradise.
How does hair fall increase in the monsoons?
Humidity is the major factor contributing to increased hair fall during the monsoon season. When it begins to rain, the amount of hydrogen in the air increases as the humidity increases. The hair absorbs this hydrogen causing it to expand. As a result, the hair strands not only become brittle, but they also lose their natural oils, which weaken the hair follicles and make them prone to breakage.
In addition to humidity, hair loss occurs during the monsoons as a result of polluted rains. Pollutants include germs and bacteria that are harmful to your hair follicles and scalp. When these pathogens settle on your scalp, they can cause skin infections, weakened hair and eventually lead to hair loss.

4. Maintain Dry Hair
This is one of the most vital monsoon hair care tips. Rainwater generally has a higher acidic value because it absorbs pollutants from the environment. When your hair comes into contact with this precipitation, it becomes brittle and frizzy. Furthermore, your hair follicles may become more sensitive and begin to absorb more rainwater, causing your roots to enlarge and hair to fall out. So keep your hair dry as much as possible or use a microfiber towel to dry it.
5. Eat a Healthy Diet
Diet is essential in every season to keep your hair healthy. Your food has a significant impact on your hair health and hence, you should add high protein meals to your daily diet, such as eggs, walnuts, whole grains and certain dairy products. Additionally, consume fruits rich in antioxidants and green vegetables to add shine to your hair.
And now that you've read these monsoon hair care tips, it's time to quit hiding from the rains and start flaunting your gorgeous hair.
