Hair fall Due To Monsoon? 5 Easy Tips and Solutions to Prevent Hair Fall

Hair fall during the rainy season is extremely common. Reports suggest that during monsoon, people experience 30% more hair fall. This is due to more humidity in the atmosphere which makes our hair greasy that eventually leads to hair fall and dandruff. If one does not take immediate action, greasy hair can also lead to fungal infections, weakening roots and patchy scalp. 

Here are a few quick tips and tricks to control hair fall and strengthen hair at home. 

Use a mild shampoo  During the rainy season, you must try and keep your hair clean and dry. You will have to wash them frequently to avoid greasy, sticky hair.  It is important to use a mild, light shampoo during monsoon as shampoos with harsh chemicals may adversely affect your hair especially the delicate roots. Opt for a light herbal shampoo that will keep your hair clean and also help you strengthen your hair follicles.
