If you have itchy scalp due to sweat or dryness, add some vinegar to the water before rinsing your hair with it.
For Dull Oily Hair
Dull lifeless hair can ruin even your best look during this rainy season. Most of us even avoid oiling our hair due to this problem. However, your hair needs special care during the monsoons. Add lime juice and orange juice to coconut oil before applying it to your scalp and hair – this will help in reducing the oiliness.
You can also make a paste of Hibiscus leaves, mint and lime juice to apply on your scalp. Leave it on for half an hour and wash it off with a mild citrus-based shampoo.
For an easy and less-time consuming solution, simply rub lemon slices into your scalp before taking a bath.
For Hair Fall
Oily scalps and itchiness can increase hair fall during the monsoons. Try this pack to tackle this problem and boost hair growth – Mix 1 cup honey, almond oil and ground chamomile leaves and make into a paste. Apply and leave it on your scalp for an hour. Wash it off with a mild shampoo. Use this twice a week for visibly thicker and conditioned hair in a month’s time.
Fenugreek (methi) is a good remedy for hairfall, dandruff and dry scalp. Soak fenugreek seeds in water overnight. Next day, strain the water and wash your hair with it.
For Soft Bouncy Hair
Eggs are good natural conditioners for your hair. Mix an egg with two tablespoons of curd and apply this to your hair after shampooing. Keep this on for 20 minutes and wash it off with water only.
You could also try the honey and oil mask. Use light oils like almond – mix two parts of oil with one part of honey. Warm the mixture slightly and apply to your hair. Avoid the scalp and leave it on for 20 minutes before washing it off with mild shampoo.
Beer is a good conditioner too, but make sure you use flat fizz-less beer on your hair.
