Not Using a Hat or Cap To Protect Your Hair: One common mistake that many people make is neglecting to use a hat or cap as a protective measure. Rain water can effect your hair.

Taking Hot Water Showers: Showering with hot water during can have severe consequences for your hair health. Not only does the hot water mess with your hair structure, but it also makes your hair frizzy and brittle. Switch to lukewarm water showers

Not Washing Your Hair at proper intervals: If you’re out and about in Mumbai, you’re bound to get all sweaty by the end or even the middle of the day.

It is therefore very important to wash your hair 2-3 times a week with the right shampoo

Not Using A Shampoo Free Of Harmful Chemicals: Incorporating a gentle, clean shampoo and conditioner free of sulfate, paraben, silicone, artificial-fragrances, dyes into your hair care routine is also beneficial

Excessive Use of Styling Tools Like Blow Dryers, Straighteners: It is advised to keep a close check on the use of heat styling tools in a city like Mumbai, and in general as well. The styling tools can generate excessive heat that can further dry out the hair and contribute to hair fall

Skipping Oil Application Every Now & Then: It is very important for you to not skip applying oil to your hair as it offers numerous benefits in maintaining healthy hair and reducing hair fall. During monsoon, applying oil can help moisturise and nourish your hair, keeping it hydrated and less prone to breakage
