One thing we can all agree upon is that summer always comes up with more issues than we can handle- skin chafing, dry skin, itchy scalp, rashes, and what not! Even if the rain Gods relieve us of some of these issues, an oily scalp is waiting right in the corner to visit you!
Oily, greasy mane during monsoons is literally the worst! One day you're flipping your hair on the 'Gram and the next day, all you can feel is oil on your scalp. But don't you worry as we know just the ways you can bid adieu to a greasy scalp this rainy season!
Increased humidity plays an important role in making our hair feel so greasy all the time during monsoons. It not only makes your hair appear flat but can also lead to hair fall, itchy scalp, smelly hair and dull locks in general. Here's what you need to do.
Thanks to monsoons and humidity, we have no shortage of oil in our hair. To keep your hair looking fresh, yet strong, do oil your mane but not more than twice a week. Stick to lightweight or nonsticky hair oils to avoid the accumulation of grease on your scalp.
To ensure that your scalp is moisturized and healthy, treat yourself to a monthly hair spa or do one from the comfort of your homes.
A DIY hair mask or a deep conditioning mask will also keep your hair moisturized and nourished.
There's an oily scalp and then there's a super oily scalp that becomes greasy just the next day after washing your hair. If your hair falls (sadly) in the second category, wash your hair more frequently.
Do not forget to apply a hair serum to keep your mane tamed and frizz-free!
We all know that citrusy gems such as lemons or curd are amazing to keep oil at bay. Applying 2 tbsps of curd with the juice of one lemon can keep your scalp feeling fresh and oil-free. Let it sit in your hair for about 30 mins before you wash it off.
Do this twice a week for a month to see the difference.
If you're looking for instant results, try this home remedy: Take some talcum powder on your hands, brush off the excess, and massage it into the scalp. Remember, add only a small amount otherwise you'll be ready for Halloween, a little too soon 😂
Another, non-messy way to keep the oil in check is via a dry shampoo. They come in all sizes so you can fit one into your mini-bag and spritz it for a fresh scalp.
Try these amazing hair remedies and bid adieu to an oily scalp in no time.
