change in season.

shampoo which helps to take off the impurities even if
you have wet your hair with rain water.

hair but as the hair styling products will have chemicals,
they will further add grease and product build up when

So, you should try and minimize the use of hairstyling
products.
Hair Conditioning
Your scalp becomes oilier than usual during but that
doesn’t mean the same for the hair strands. Hair strands
need conditioning and when you have rough dry hair
ends then hair conditioning becomes utmost important.

common which can dry the hair further so, always use
a hair conditioner on the hair strands below the level of
the ears.

and damaged the cuticle of your hair. Hot oil massaging can
be extremely beneficial to give the hair its lost moisture.

coconut oil etc and use these beneficial oils to massage
your scalp and hair. Keeping the oils overnight is good.

Scarves and caps
To protect your hair from getting damaged with winds

Hair rinse to remove product build up and impurities
Rain water can have mild acids and impurities while
windy season will fill the scalp with dirt. In that case it
becomes very crucial for you to take extra step like washing
the hair with a homemade hair rinse once a week to get
squeaky clean scalp and also to remove any hair styling
product build up. For that, you will need lemon juice. Apply
lemon juice on the scalp after you have washed the hair
and wait for 5 minutes. Then rinse this with water. This
step will make the hair free of any dirt and product residue
and also makes the hair shinier.
