Nobody likes to see hair strands on their pillow as they wake up. Isn't that feeling very annoying? Yes, it is. Probably when you see an increase in the hair fall, you may realize that your food intake isn't proper. Excessive moisture is the biggest culprit that damages your hair during monsoons. But even in other seasons, sweat could play the villain.

"Moisture affects your hair even if you remain indoors, especially on days when the humidity is high. Depending

on your hair type, it may leave your hair frizzy or flat," said Dr Apratim Goel, dermatologist and laser surgeon Director, Cutis skin studio, Mumbai.
