Scalp care is undoubtedly the most underrated and overlooked of any personal-care routine, but people tend to forget that healthy hair is the result of a healthy scalp. The scalp is a breeding ground for dirt, build-up, and debris, that is the consequence of natural oils, product residue, and sweat. The humid monsoon climate only aggravates these problems, which brings us back to the importance of a sustainable and dependable scalp care routine. But how does someone take care of their scalp?

What does an effective scalp care routine entail?
Effective scalp care begins with using the right products to ensure they work to fight the present consequences of humid weather, and the common problem of product residue that comes from chemical-based products.
- Keep your scalp clean: Cleansing the scalp and ensuring it’s dry afterwards is paramount in a monsoon scalp care routine, as a moist scalp can lead to bacterial or fungal infections since they thrive under moist conditions. An effective way to keep your scalp clean is by using a mild, natural, chemical-free shampoo that combats excess build-up, leaves no chemical residue, and absorbs excess oil. The Hemp with Argan & Activated Charcoal Shampoo Bar was crafted for this very purpose.
- Use a nourishing and refreshing hair cream: A common problem during the humid monsoons is terrible odour from the scalp. The accumulation of sweat and dirt when combined can make your scalp reek. Using a deeply nourishing and refreshing hair cream like the Argan Peppermint Hair Cream can help moisturise your scalp, control dandruff, stimulate hair growth, and also keep the foul odour away replacing it with the fresh scent of peppermint essential oil.
- Focus on eating healthy: The right diet can provide adequate nourishment to your hair and scalp. Eating protein rich foods such as eggs, spinach, fish, beans, yoghurt etc. can help improve and maintain scalp and hair health.
- Don’t forget to oil your hair: It is a common misconception that oiling your hair during the monsoon months is a counterproductive task. Applying a salubrious oil once or twice a week can help fight common problems such as bacterial or fungal infections, and seborrheic dermatitis. The Hemp with Avocado Hair Oil is the perfect monsoon hair oil as it moisturises the scalp, prevents the pores from clogging, fights off common monsoon scalp infections, and leaves your scalp smelling fresh due to the presence of peppermint oil.
If handled right, the monsoons can be a wonderful time to have fun in the rain, and enjoy the pleasant, relaxing earthy scent it brings along with it. These simple tips tried and tested by our team at Satliva, will ensure your monsoon months don’t go wasted.
