Monsoon is here and so are our daily hair problems like bad hair day. All of us suffer from hair problems all through our lives, each and every day. Our tresses are our pride and we would love to have a gorgeous mane with hair that is silky and shiny.
But there are always some hair problems that get into the way of our dreams. Why is it so difficult to have perfect hair?
The problem with our Indian system of hair care is that we focus more on the hair lengths than the actual scalp. All hair problems are actually rooted to our scalps. Most of us forget about the fact that in order to get healthy hair, a healthy scalp is important.
Just like skin types, we have different hair types as well. Dry, oily or sensitive. But the common problem which resonates with all hair types is dandruff.
Dandruff is the condition where the scalp becomes itchy and flaky and sheds dead skin. This may result in small white specks appearing on your shoulders of even the forehead. Dandruff may also give you an itchy scalp.
Our scalp is producing newer cells every day and the older cells die and shed mostly without our knowledge. But in some cases, where there is rapid production of new cells, the older cells are shed in excess too, making the process visible and therefore annoying.
Though dandruff is not restricted to certain weather, it is known to flare up in the monsoons. The sudden wet and dry conditions that our scalp has to go through during the rains just make the matters worse.
There are a lot of hair care products in the market that claim to rejuvenate your scalp and make the dandruff miraculously disappear. But are you one of those who always buys a crate full of these products in the hopes that they will enable you to wear your favourite LBD again, just to be disappointed in the end? Don't fret, we are here for you.
We at Boldsky always vouch for natural remedies in solving our problems. Here, we will tell you about an amazing hair mask that will nourish your scalp, soothe it and help you effectively manage dandruff.
