So here we all welcome monsoons :) after the scorching heat. Arrivals of monsoons have brought a sigh of relief but the monsoons do have a bad effect on our hair as well. So these monsoons I have modified my hair care routine as well to combat damage due to humidity and rains. I have already shared with you my entry in the last contest and shared my hair care regime but now due to monsoons I have modified the same. Don’t forget to read how I reduced 90% of my hair fall in a month.
How I used the MABH product? ~ Usage, Results and Review:
I came to know about MABH hair oil while I was googling about hair growth oils. I read the reviews and ordered for the same. Trust me the results were immediate in terms of losing hair, roughness and fizziness. The hair looked shinier and bouncy. Then I participated in the giveaway announced by Lancy and won another bottle.
The first time when I used this hair oil I found the oil in yellowish with a very slight tinge of green shade. I usually applied this hair oil before sleeping, keep it whole night and washed the following morning. This oil has has a pleasant herbal fragrance and you don’t have to use much shampoo to clear the oil from scalp. The smell was herbal and pleasant.
After the first wash itself I could feel the difference in texture of the hair. With regular usage my hairfall too reduced. I have already finished two bottles and would continue using more if I get such positive results. I trust this hair oil as it is completely free from parabens, with no chemicals in it. Its 100% natural with tried and tested formula by Lancy and her hair growth story is a big example. It is completely natural and chemical free but a little pricey but still I feel everyone should give this a try.
Even my little one is a big fan of Lancy’s hair and keep telling me if she will use the same hair oil to get hair like Lancy :) I have already used it and I can feel the difference. It is 100% vegan, homemade and purely herbal with no side effects as such.
My Hair Care Regime in Monsoon:
1. Oiling twice a week and precautionary measures I use: I make sure I oil my hair twice a week. I apply hair oil 4 hours before head bath. Earlier I used to keep it overnight but due to humid conditions I prefer not to do oiling overnight.
2. A No-No to styling: I am paying visits these monsoons to salons only for trimming and am completely avoiding styling my hair or using any styling products. Because of humidity our hair tend to attract more dirt and so when stylists use sprays on hair the hair can tend to look more shabby.
3. Don’t tie wet hair: I never tie wet hair. Sometimes you feel your hair are dry but at times they are not completely dry. So I make sure I give plenty of time to my hair to get dry completely before stepping out of home to avoid itchy scalp and other skin related issues. Make sure you give enough time to your hair to dry completely after taking head bath.
4. Use a hoodie jacket: I always i carry my hoodie jacket with me when am out because showers can surprise u anytime:) Rainwater is acidic in nature so it can cause harm to hair when rain directly falls on your head. Its best to use a hoodie to save our hair from acidic water.
5. Use Aloe vera gel: I read in a magazine that aloe vera helps in restoring pH balance of the scalp. I feel during monsoons the same is lost due to humid weather conditions. So I take out aloe vera gel mixed with honey and lemon and apply it on my scalp 30 mins before head bath. It reinstates your pH balance.
Other products I use this monsoon:
1. Coconut oil: I use this oil and mix it with castor oil for massage a couple of hours before head bath.
2. Patanjali hair shampoo: I love this shampoo.This shampoo easily removes oil from the head and after wash the hair are soft and shiny. I also use Vatika conditioner after shampooing.
3. Shahnaz Hussain shantone scalp tonic: After the head bath I apply a few drops of the same on the cotton and massage the scalp. It improves texture of the hair oil and minimizes hair fall.
4. I take a table spoon daily of multivitamin and multi mineral health supplement.
Other important hair care tips:
1. Go for regular trims.
2. Towel dry gently.
3. After completely drying the hair its best to tie them to avoid any form of dirt buildup on scalp due to humidity.
4. Don’t let hair get wet in rain. Since I mentioned earlier rain water is acidic and also there are floating toxins in air which come down with rain, there are chances they can settle on scalp and can lead to itchiness of scalp, dandruff and acne.
5. Just in case if your hair gets drenched in rain, make sure you rinse them with gentle shampoo and conditioner.
6. Sometimes people complain of bad odour from hair during monsoons in that case use 1 lemon in half a cup of rose water in a mug with another half mug of water for final rinse.
7. Use a wide tooth comb to untangle your hair. Its best to start coming from bottom first and then start combing from roots to avoid any sort of breakage. I advise a wooden comb because they are not static.
7. Use more of nuts, fresh fruits and salads.
Hope you all will find these tips useful in keeping your hair healthy and safe during these monsoons. Last but not the least…
ENJOY THE RAINS! ;)
