The rainy season has stepped in, and as beautiful as it may seem, the rain can cause havoc for your hair if you are not careful. You may not make much of it but it's true.

As astounding as it may sound, don't let it dampen your spirit. All you need to do is to put in a little effort to take care of your hair and follow these important hair care tips that we've listed out for you.
During the long monsoon month there is high oil secretion on the scalp, which makes the hair look flat at the roots. To combat this, it is essential to wash your hair regularly. Antibacterial hair shampoos and cleansers are hair care essentials for the scalp as they help fight fungal and bacterial infections.
Rain water is usually acidic and dirty. If you are stepping out, use a protective leave-in conditioner and dry your hair naturally. It will form a protective layer on your hair and shield it from the damage rain water can cause. Besides, it will act as a deodorizer to keep your hair smelling good.
