Hair fall prevention tips for the monsoon season

As the climate is sticky due to excess humidity, dandruff, hair fall, and other hair issues become more. These issues are mostly seasonal, meaning they should go away after the rainy season. Here let’s discuss the main causes of hair fall during monsoon and how to overcome it.

How to prevent dandruff during the monsoon season?

Dandruff is a chronic condition that occurs when the scalp is dry or greasy, which produces white dead skin flakes. Dandruff is caused by several problems such as sensitivity to hair products, the overgrowth of yeast-like fungus caused due to stress, hormones, excess oil on the scalp, and sometimes problems with the immune system. Makes it itchy, and the hair follicles become weak. For all those who have dandruff, especially for long hair women, dandruff slips down the forehead, neck, and shoulders, and dried skin flakes are seen all over the hair. Dandruff cannot be cured but can be controlled, and the person should use specialized treatment shampoo. The anti-dandruff shampoo slows down the skin from dying and dropping off. One can take care of dandruff by following the below tips:-

Oil massage: Regular coconut oil massage, as coconut oil contains natural vitamins and fatty acids that nourish the scalp by penetrating the hair’s cuticle.

Applying gels: Before the head bath, apply aloe vera gel to the complete scalp and leave it for thirty minutes. Then use a mild shampoo and rinse the applied gel by repeating this three to four times a week so that the scalp is well nourished.

Avoid electrical hair blowers: Take a complete head bath whenever drenched in the rain, drying the hair naturally without using an electric hair dryer.

Protection: Even when it drizzles, it’s better to carry an umbrella or a scarf to protect the hair.

Avoid vacation: Avoid vacations during monsoons, as the rains are acidic.

Clean wide-toothed comb: During monsoon season, wide-toothed combs should be used, it’s better to avoid hair dryers and brushes as these cause more damage to the hair.

Correct decision: Women with oily hair should be more careful during this season. Changing the regular hair products during the monsoon season is better, such as dry shampoo. It would help if you switched to seasonal mild and gentle shampoos according to their quality of curly, frizzy, and wavy hair. It’s better to continue using seasonal shampoos even after the monsoon season. 

Hair fall due to lice in monsoon season

A louse is an external parasite that feeds on the blood on the scalp. The lice mainly infect the hair and the scalp when people come in close contact or share the infected combs, brushes, hats, and other personal items through which the infection spreads. Head lice are most common among girls aged between 5 to 11 years. If left untreated, it would become a life-threatening issue. The infection can spread to the lymph nodes. Louse not only lives in the hair but also in the body. Body lice spread bacterial diseases such as typhus, relapsing or trench fever. If a person is infected with body louse for long, the person experience changes such as thickening and decolourization, particularly around the neck, waist, and upper thighs.

Tips to get rid of lice are:-

  • Wet combing is the traditional way to get rid of lice.
  • Applying coconut oil, tea tree oil, lavender eucalyptus, rosemary, lemon grass, and peppermint are good repellents.
  • Regular hair combing with a louse comb specially designed to remove lice. 
  • Killing lice is not a good process as mostly the kids are infected. Getting rid of them gradually is a better option.
  • It’s better to keep the seating a bit distant to control the infection.

Monsoon-related health issues

Seasonal diseases include Dengue, chikungunya, Malaria, Cholera, Typhoid, and Viral fever. When a female contracts any of the above diseases, it results in hair fall. 

Monsoon is an enjoyable season. We all love getting wet in the rain, eating hot pakoras, and drinking hot tea. Children, too, enjoy the monsoon.
