The blissful mornings of wet window panes, the aromatic smell of the mud while sipping a hot cup of coffee along with a mesmerising view of lush green trees. As a little child, we would always want to skip school to enjoy the rainy weather while splashing water on each other and jumping into those little puddles. These indelible memories of the monsoon season will always be stuck into our minds.

As happy as the monsoon seems to children, mothers have to deal with its repercussions. This is because, children always fail to understand the need for a hair wash and a shower after they have had one in the rain!

The excessive content of acid in the rain water and escalation of moisture content in the atmosphere makes it worse, as it gives rise to unwanted bacterial and fungal infections in the hair. Moreover, the excessive humidity causes fungal infections that penetrate into the scalp causing problems like irritation, stickiness, itchiness and dandruff. So here are some useful tips to prevent your hair from fungal infections during the monsoon.

The best weather to cut your hair short is during the monsoons. Short hair is easy to manage and can be modulated easily. It also reduces the hassle of proper maintenance.

Nothing is as beneficial as an oil massage. Oil seeps in through the hair follicles and nourishes the scalp. Therefore, it prevents several infections and enriches the scalp while keeping the hair strong and healthy too.
