Summer Hair Cleaning Tips To Prevent Dandruff and Hair Fall In The Hot Weather

Dandruff and Hair Fall In The Hot Weather


The season for dandruff and hair fall is here, alongside the season of mangoes and vacations. It’s a concern for both oily and dry scalp and let’s understand how. The sweating and humidity in summer cause build up on the scalp leading to dandruff or itchy scalp. When the scalp remains oily, it further traps dust, dirt and pollution and worsens the dandruff. On the other hand, when the weather is just hot and dry it causes severe dehydration of the already dry scalp which leads to flakiness. As the water barrier of the scalp is lost, it is prone to infections leading to dandruff and itchiness. Dandruff and other build-up on the scalp act as a barrier leading to malabsorption of nutrients thus causing hairfall.


So whether we are targeting prevention or treatment of dandruff/hair fall in this hot season, we need to focus on ‘cleansing’ for better results. While cleansing only, might not give the desired outcome, not doing it properly will have repercussions. Now let’s delve into the type of cleanses.


1. Shampoo Cleanse

This is something we are all familiar with. Use a shampoo that is gentle on hair and scalp yet effectively removes all the dust, oil and buildup. Don’t hesitate to wash your hair daily in case of excessive sweating or dirt exposure or in case of an oily scalp.

The Moha Anti-dandruff Shampoo works effectively against dandruff. The neem oil and tea tree oil in it has anti-fungal, antiseptic and antibacterial properties which prevent dandruff. The rosemary oil possesses thorough cleansing action while providing nourishment. This makes it the best herbal anti-dandruff shampoo.

Make sure you always indulge in a shampoo cleanse before any procedure like oiling or using a scrub or mask to gain maximum benefits.


2. Oil massage cleanse


It is a myth that one shouldn’t apply oil on oily scalp or dandruff-prone scalp. The reality is that a gentle oil massage will release the toxins from the scalp and mild steam or wrapping a hot towel will get these to the surface. The shampoo cleanse post will help get rid of the toxins. On the other hand, the best way to combat dryness and flakiness is oiling.

Take equal quantities of available powders from the above-mentioned list and sieve them to get a fine powder. Then make a thin paste with moha; Aloe vera gel. Apply to the entire length of hair starting from the scalp. Keep it on for 20-30 minutes and then gently scrub the scalp with damp fingers. Follow it up with a thorough shampoo cleanse. Make sure no powder residue is left behind after cleansing and moha; Anti-Dandruff Shampoo serves this purpose well.
