Monsoon is indeed a lovely season, but it can make things difficult for your hair. The varying humidity in the air can sometimes make hair frizzy. While the damp scalp will definitely make way for dandruff growth, hair fall can emerge as another pressing problem.

Although your immediate urge would be to run to the nearest store and grab some haircare products, the chemicals in them might have an opposite effect on the tresses. Take the safer route and go for natural remedies, which you can mostly find in your house itself.

Aloe vera

Aloe vera is beneficial in many different ways. It heals the itching and flakiness of your scalp, as well as, treats dandruff and hair fall, boosting hair growth. It is also easy to go about. Just scoop out the flesh and apply the pulp on to your scalp and hair, and leave it on for about 45 minutes to one hour. Wash it off with normal water.

Amla

Amla or the Indian gooseberry strikes the issue of hair fall at its root. Hair fall is mainly said to be caused due to deficiency of vitamin C. Consumption of amla will tend to this trouble. It also, apparently, curbs premature greying of the hair and improves the health of the hair and scalp. You can dry the amla, powder it, and make a paste to apply on hair and scalp.

Egg white

Add some honey and olive oil to egg whites and apply it on your hair, thoroughly from the roots, till the tip. Wash off with a mild shampoo, to ward off the smell.
