We are living in unprecedented times and it is definitely not business as usual, in both, our personal and professional lives. This pandemic has certainly turned our lives upside down and stress is something that is now constant in all our lives. Stress might be caused by a lot of factors during the pandemic like being away from our loved ones, job losses, salary cuts, not being able to attend school/college, constantly worrying about contracting the virus or just consuming too much news that leaves us drained by the end of the day.
One thing that I’ve noticed has increased a lot during this pandemic is my hair fall and it might be the same for you too so please continue reading to know what I’ve been doing to control it. There are a lot of reasons that might cause hair fall during the pandemic and I’ve listed some helpful ways of battling them below.
5 Ways to Protect Your Hair During the Pandemic:
1) Eat nutritious food
Surviving a pandemic is hard enough to forget meal planning, right? No, having a balanced diet and cutting down on processed food is really important, pandemic or not. Please make sure you take out time to cook yourself a nutritious meal rich in proteins instead of ordering in. Also try to cut down on packaged food items and sugar as much as you can.
2) Make certain lifestyle changes to reduce stress
Stress definitely leads to hair loss in the long run so try to make some changes in your lifestyle to reduce stress. Some ways in which you can reduce stress would be to limit your screen time, meditate, exercise, read, journal and make some time for your hobbies every day. Please remember to speak to a therapist if you’re experiencing anxiety or emotional stress during the pandemic.
3) Massage your scalp with an ayurvedic hair oil
Whenever I purchase hair products, I always lean towards Ayurvedic hair products which are free from harmful chemicals that damage your hair. I have been using the Kesh King Ayurvedic Oil for quite some time now and I have been loving the results so far. I deeply massage the oil onto my scalp 2-3 times a week and leave it in for about 40 minutes and then I rinse my hair with cold water. This way I let the oil nourish my hair but since I have naturally oily hair, I don’t leave the product in for too long so it doesn’t leave my hair greasy or attract dirt onto my scalp. After using the Kesh King Ayurvedic oil for a few months, I’ve found my hair feeling softer and tangle free after every wash. The Kesh King oil is the perfect ayurvedic oil for hair growth as it is made from 21 ayurvedic herbs as per text prescribed in Ayurveda and Tel Pak Vidhi. It is also certified by eminent international hair institutes.
It is one of the best ayurvedic hair regrowth products as it is a medicinal preparation without any side effects and effectively delivers nutrients into the deepest layer of scalp & hair with the help of the revolutionary Deep Root Comb. If you’ve been facing increased hair fall, dandruff and dryness due to the pandemic I’d suggest you also try the Kesh King oil at least thrice a week for 3 months to see visible results. This product is suitable for all hair types,
FDA approved, cruelty free, free from harmful chemicals and contains no paraben and no silicon.
4) Wash your hair with an ayurvedic shampoo
Make sure you are using a mild ayurvedic shampoo to wash your hair. I have personally been using the Kesh King Anti-hair fall shampoo to wash my hair for the past few months and I’ve noticed that it leaves my hair feeling softer and I have noticed lesser hair fall too. It works well if you use this shampoo to wash your hair after applying the kesh king hair oil like I’ve been doing. This shampoo is one of the best ayurvedic hair growth products as it is filled with the goodness of Aloe and 21 Ayurvedic Herbs as per the text prescribed in Ayurveda. One tip I would give is to make sure you end your hair wash with cold water, it may not be the most comfortable but it helps with closing your cuticle after the wash and also helps your hair to look strong and shiny, and who doesn’t want that? I love that the kesh king hair fall shampoo is cruelty free, paraben free, free from all harmful chemicals and FDA approved.
5) Condition your hair with an ayurvedic conditioner
Conditioning is the second step while washing your hair and to me it is one of the most important steps as it helps make my hair easier to manage. While shampoo is formulated specifically to clean off sweat, dead skin cells, and hair products, conditioner makes hair softer and easier to manage and also protects hair shafts from damage. I have been using the Kesh King anti-hair fall conditioner and it’s the perfect way to end your hair wash as it is the 1st” ayurvedic conditioner with aloe vera and 21 rare ayurvedic herbs that reduces hair fall and manages frizzy hair. Make sure that you apply conditioner from your mid-lengths to your ends since this part of your hair tends to be drier. Don’t apply conditioner at the roots as this can weigh down your hair and even cause your roots to appear greasy.
I hope all these ways help you in protecting your hair during the pandemic and remember that it’s not just your hair that you need to look after but also your physical and mental health that ultimately affects your hair too. So, I hope you stay hydrated, fit and stress-free and we get out this pandemic with healthy glowing hair.
