Expert Tips For Hair Care During Monsoon

Monsoon calls for extra hair care. The downpours leave hair tampered, dry, and frizzy. But you know you don’t need to worry when you have us. Right? So here we go, here are some amazing hair care tips you must remember for the love of those lovely tresses you possess.
No matter how much you are tempted, you must wash your hair only twice a week. It helps restore the natural oil balance of your scalp and keeps from dryness of the scalp and hair.

Hair serums and hair packs are your hair’s elixir for monsoons. Dab on some serum during every wash.

Also go for hair masks quite regularly. They help a great deal in keeping hair healthy and frizz free and hence manageable.

For those with naturally dry hair, monsoons demand extra care. Hair masks are one of the best ways to make sure your hair get the best monsoon care. You may use a market bought hair mask, or go for DIY hair masks. Just remember to use a hair mask every time you wash your hair. Keep the mask on for at least 15-20 minutes before washing it off.

Hair care products must ideally be from the same brand. So, the shampoo, conditioner, serum and spray you use must be of the same brand. Changing of too many brands rapidly may result in hair fall and damage.

Many dermatologists and cosmetologists stress on the importance of having a protein rich diet during monsoon. Protein prevents dryness of hair during the season of downpour.

Tone down the use of styling products and allow the hair to dry naturally. Tying down your hair in a neat ponytail or braids is a good idea to keep you from going through bad hair days.

Avoid chemical treatments during monsoon, as the chemicals may react with the rain water leading to more problems for the hair.

Go for healthy diet during the downpours. Cut down on caffeine and junk food. Eat more fiber like sprouts, green salads, leafy vegetables and fresh fruits.

Because Monsoon Calls For Special Hair Care

The amazing weather brings a strong urge for a vacation in the rains. There’s hardly anyone who does not like dancing and enjoying in the rains. But in all the merriment of the weather, do we realize how gravely our hair need special care because of all the humidity?

Our hair being such an important aspect of our aesthetics, need to be taken care of. Here are some tips for you to enjoy the season to the fullest without compromising on your hair health:

  1. First and the most important thing to remember is to never leave your hair wet. You have got to dry them either with a towel or a blow dryer.
  2. Never ever tie your wet hair. It only keeps them damp for long, causing damage and hair loss. Damp hair is a hotbed for bacteria.
  3. Make sure you cover your wet hair while outside the house, to protect them from the dirt, and the pollution from sticking and damaging the hair.
  4. One big mistake that people generally make during monsoon is that they avoid washing their hair regularly. It not only keeps the scalp unhealthy, but also weakens the hair.
  5. Have hair baths 2-3 times every week using a mild shampoo for the duration of the humid season. It will keep your scalp clean and keep fungal infections at bay.
  6. During monsoon, humidity is at an all-time high. This makes your scalp moist, thereby making it a breeding ground for many problems. Make sure you keep your scalp dry; umbrellas or caps do the trick.
  7. If you’ve got tangled or frizzy hair, use a conditioner. This could be of the same brand as your shampoo or you can use natural conditioners like egg yolk and curd.
  8. Have lots of fresh green vegetables and fruits. Avoid meat during the monsoons, it may subject you to infections. The more balanced and healthy you eat, the more shine and sheen your hair shall have.

Enjoy the monsoon madness to the fullest without compromising on your hair health with these expert tips. Happy Monsoon to you.

Skincare Tips For Men

From fighting acne to the first signs of wrinkles, it’s hard to win the good-skin game. But before blaming your genes, ask yourself if your skincare routine and lifestyle habits are responsible. And by that we don’t mean spending hours in front of the mirror or getting stuck with fancy facial products.

Layering on too many products can actually irritate the skin. The key is to wash and moisturize your skin every day and follow a few other maintenance basics. Check out the do’s and don’ts for a fresher looking face everyday.

1. Cleanse

Well, don’t worry guys, cleansing is just a fancy word for washing your face daily. It’s very important to wash your face at least twice daily. Once, in the morning and once in the evening before bedtime. Even if you don’t really see the dirt and grin that resides on the skin, it doesn’t mean there isn’t any. Presence of excess oil and dirt on the skin lead to acne and pimples. Make it a habit to wash your wash with a good quality face wash, only to remove the excess oil and dirt.

2. Exfoliate

It is very important to exfoliate your skin twice every week. Exfoliating with a scrub helps remove excess oil and blackheads. Remember to use a toner post scrubbing, it closes all the skin pores and sooths the skin.

3. Moisturize

Moisturizers can make a heck of a difference in a man’s skin. In fact, men need to moisturize their skin a little more than women. It is because a lot of men shave. Every time you scrape that razor over your skin, you don’t just remove facial hair, but also necessary oils from the skin. Moisturizer restores hydration to the skin, leaving it soft, supple and healthy looking.

4. Use A Good Razor

It is very important that you use a good quality razor for shaving. Cheap razors can damage skin and leave it rough. They may also cause after shave skin burns. Using a good quality razor protects the skin, while removing the facial hair. Say goodbye to cheap razors.

5. Use Aftershave

Aftershave contains antiseptic properties, that prevent infections of cuts, as well as astringent that reduces skin irritation.

6. Sunscreen

Sunscreen protects the skin against UVA and UVB rays, that can treacherously harm the skin. Sun damage accelerates skin aging. Using a sunscreen with SPF 30 or more fights against the harmful effects of the sun. Don’t forget to wear your sunscreen everyday.

So gentlemen, it’s that simple. Make sure you incorporate these simple things in your daily routine. You will definitely notice a difference in your appearance. Enjoy your healthy, handsome skin.
