Have you observed severe hair fall during monsoon? Do you think your hair loss is increasing every day? If your answer is yes to these questions, check out this article to know the best solution for prevent it during monsoon.
Hair fall is commonly seen among many people during monsoon. It mostly happens due to the increased humidity in the atmosphere during this season. It also causes scalp dryness, weakening the roots and leading to hair fall.
If you look from the Ayurvedic perspective, your health is maintained when three Doshas (bioenergies), namely – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha, are in a state of balance. When any of these bioenergies gets imbalanced due to a bad diet, lifestyle, or weather change, it can lead to different symptoms.
The increased humidity in the atmosphere can hamper the Vata dosha inside the body. As a result, it can lead to the aggravation of Vata dosha, causing hair fall.
Here are the best ways to prevent and cure hair fall during monsoon:
1. Nutritional deficiency
Before diving into any home remedy or cure, it is essential to rule out the root cause behind any health problem. Hair fall can happen due to nutritional deficiencies like Vitamin D deficiency, B2 (riboflavin), B7 (biotin), B9 (folate), or calcium. So, first, getting a proper consultation with an Ayurvedic doctor near you and taking the supplement (if required) or dietary advice according to your condition is essential.
2. Hair oiling
When it comes to the health of your hair, the first advice you will get from elders is to oil your hair regularly. Ayurveda also recommends hair oiling with various herbal oils to help improve hair growth and prevent hair fall. Massaging your scalp with warm hair oil twice a week helps to improve blood circulation and prevent this condition.
Applying hair oil helps prevent dry scalp and frizziness in hair that could arise from the monsoon. So, it is essential to gently massage your scalp during monsoon with oils like Neelibhringadi hair oil, Bhringraj hair oil, Neem oil, or Sesame oil.
3. Hair wash
During monsoon, wash your hair at least twice or thrice a week to remove the dirt from your scalp. The depositions in your scalp can also be one of the reasons behind hair fall. So, washing it twice or thrice a week can help to prevent it.
For hair wash, it is best to use neem, aloe vera, amla based herbal shampoos at least once a week.
4. Hair cut or trim
If you face a lot of hair fall during monsoon, it is better to get a haircut or trimming. When long hair is not maintained well, it gets pulled and entangled, which leads to more hair fall. So, cutting down or trimming can help you remove damaged hair and enhance hair growth.
Ayurveda recommends using various herbs or herbal preparations to cure hair fall. When it is severe, you can consume a few herbs considering your Prakriti (body type) and hair condition. The best choice of herbs for hair are Amla, Bhringraj, Fenugreek, or Hibiscus. Among the herbal preparations, Bhringyadi tails, Neelibhringadi tails, or Amalaki taila are best for hair oiling, and Bhringrajasava or Amalaki Rasayana. These all are given according to the root cause behind this condition. So, always consult an Ayurvedic doctor before consuming them.
You can manage & prevent hair fall with the help of a healthy diet, hair care routine, and herbal preparations. Massaging & washing your hair regularly, eating a nutrient-rich diet, and following a required hair care regimen can help you manage it during monsoon.
