Do you love your tresses even in monsoon? The hair starts losing its shine and becomes dull as the humidity increases with the onset of monsoon. Beauty expert Shahnaz Husain shares tips to maintain hair during monsoons and keeping your mane healthy.
Heat olive oil and gently rub it all over your scalp to extricate the white flakes. The warm oil therapy will not let the dandruff stick to your scalp. Leave this overnight and next morning apply the juice of a lemon or apple cider vinegar on the scalp and wash the hair after 15 minutes.
Egg white with lemon juice- As the hair starts losing its sheen during monsoon, you can rejuvenate it by applying whisked egg white with the juice of half a lemon. Keep this for half an hour and then wash your hair. Shampoo your hair more frequently but use less shampoo and rinse it well.
Lemon juice and rose water- Add the juice of a lemon and half cup of rose water to a mug of water and use this to rinse your hair in the end after you are done washing your hair. This will clear away the bad odour from your scalp during the rainy season.
Besan with ripe papaya and lemon juice- Mix gram flour (besan) with ripe papaya pulp and lemon juice into a thick paste so that it does not drip. Apply the pack on the hair and wash it off after half an hour. This is a cleansing pack and also adds volume to the hair.
Apply tea tree oil with water- Mix the essential oils with rose water or mineral water and apply it on your scalp to get rid of the white flakes of dandruff on your top. Add five drops of Tea Tree Oil to 100 ml water. Shake it and store it in an airtight bottle. After shampooing your hair, apply this on the scalp and leave it.
