Get shiny and stronger hair at home.
Most of us experience a lot of hair problems during monsoon such as more hair fall than usual, dull and sticky texture, itchy scalp and dandruff.
These hair woes are common in the rainy season. The salt in our sweat makes the hair rough and robs the body and shine from it. Dust and grime also tend to stick to the hair, making it a worse condition.

    1. Oil Slick
    Heat sesame seed (til) oil or olive oil. Apply the oil on the scalp with cotton wool, rubbing gently to dislodge the flakes. Then dip a towel in hot water, squeeze out the water and wrap the hot towel around the head, like a turban. Keep it on for 5 minutes. Repeat the hot towel wrap 3 or 4 times. This helps the hair and scalp absorb the oil better. Leave the oil on overnight. Next morning, apply the juice of a lemon on the scalp and wash your hair after 20 minutes.

    3. Lather, Rinse, Repeat
    Shampoo the hair more frequently during the monsoon, especially if the hair is oily. Use a mild herbal shampoo. Rinse your hair well with water, to get rid of all soapy residues and loosened flakes. Apply egg white on the hair 15 minutes before shampoo as it helps reduce oiliness and adds body. Lemon juice can also be added to a mug of water and used as a last rinse. A lemon rinse helps reduce oiliness.

    4. Helpful Henna
    Henna treatments will help add body to the hair. Add 4 teaspoons each of lemon juice and coffee, 2 raw eggs and enough tea water to the henna powder, making it into a thick paste. Tea water can be made by boiling used tea leaves again in enough water, cooling and straining the liquid. Apply the henna on the hair and wash off after an hour. If you do not wish to use egg, add more tea water.
