Ten Powerpack Natural Ingredients to add in your Hair Care Routine during Monsoon
Everyone loves their thick long tresses or strong short hair, as long as they are healthy and strong. Nowadays due to stress, anxiety, food habits and the overall lifestyle the quality as well as the quantity of our hair is deteriorating and decreasing. Now, to add on to that, we have the monsoons hovering over us, bringing in a multitude of hair related concerns. A little more hair fall is common during the monsoon season, so don’t freak out when you see a few extra strands of hair on your comb.
A few botanical ingredients to tackle the monsoon woes.
1. Tea tree oil
This versatile essential oil is your one stop solution, when it comes to any kind of microbial infection on the scalp. Due to the constant humidity and moisture, the scalp becomes prone to infection. Add 3-4 drops of tea tree oil to your hair oil and massage your scalp thoroughly. Always remember to use a therapeutic grade Tea tree oil.
2. Jojoba oil
People with an oily scalp tend to suffer more during the monsoons (the humidity makes it harder). Jojoba oil is the perfect hair care solution for oily scalp. It controls the oil production on the scalp and also promotes hair growth. Make sure to use a cold pressed and food grade Jojoba oil.
3. Peppermint oil
Another essential oil that works wonders is the Peppermint oil. It reduces dandruff and also soothes and calms an itchy scalp.
4. Black seed oil
For the ones with a normal to dry scalp, replace the regular hair oil with Black seed oil. It strengthens the roots and also prevents hair fall. If you have any infection on the scalp, add a drop or two of Tea tree oil to 8-10 drops of Black seed oil and massage your scalp with this combination. Always look for a cold pressed and food grade Black seed oil.
5. Argan oil
To take care of the maddening frizziness during the monsoons, condition your hair with Argan oil. It hydrates the hair and also conditions it from within. Leave it overnight and wash it with a mild shampoo the next morning.
6. Sweet almond oil
This is one of the best carrier oils when it comes to strengthening and hydrating the scalp. Take 10-12 drops of the sweet almond oil and massage your scalp. A couple of drops of Peppermint oil can be added to tackle dandruff effectively.
7. Lavender oil
For a clean and fresh scalp, add pure Lavender essential oil to your shampoo or hair oil. Always make sure to use a therapeutic grade Lavender oil.
8. Eggs for a hair mask
Eggs are a great source of protein and can be a part of an excellent hair care routine. Make a mask with one egg, some hair oil, a few drops of lemon juice and a tablespoon of honey. Apply it on your scalp and your hair and leave it on for 20-30 minutes. Wash it off with a mild shampoo.
9. Lemongrass essential oil
If you are a fan of fruity lemony scent, add a few drops of lemongrass essential oil to your hair oil or shampoo. The lovely fresh smell will linger on for quite some time.
10. Castor oil
Castor oil is thick and not one of the first choices when it comes to monsoon. But it is very effective for hair growth. You can mix one part of Castor oil with your hair oil and massage your scalp with it. Remember, it’s a little sticky, so mind the quantity.
Always look out for a cold pressed, extra virgin Castor oil.
