What is the pH of hair and how monsoon impacts it?

by Design Pundit 05 Jul 2023 0 Comments

The pH level of hair is an essential factor that influences its health and appearance. Hair has a slightly acidic pH, ranging between 4.5 and 5.5, which helps to maintain the integrity of the hair cuticles and retain moisture. However, during the monsoon season, the pH of hair can be significantly affected due to various factors associated with the rainy weather.

 

One of the main ways the monsoon impacts the pH of hair is through increased humidity in the air. High humidity can cause the hair to absorb excess moisture from the environment, resulting in swelling of the hair shaft. This leads to lifted cuticles and increased porosity, making the hair more prone to frizz, dryness, and damage.

 

Moreover, rainwater itself tends to be slightly acidic or alkaline, depending on various factors such as air pollution and geographical location. When rainwater comes into contact with the hair, it can disrupt the natural pH balance. Alkaline rainwater can cause the hair cuticles to swell and lift, while acidic rainwater can strip the hair of its natural oils and disrupt the pH balance, leading to dryness and dullness.

 

To maintain a healthy pH balance of your hair during the monsoon season, here are some practical tips:

 

pH-balanced Hair Products: Choose hair care products, such as shampoos and conditioners, that are specifically formulated to balance the pH of the hair. Look for products labeled as pH-balanced or those designed to restore the hair's natural acidity.

 

Moisture and Hydration: Keep your hair adequately moisturized to combat the effects of humidity. Use hydrating conditioners and hair masks that help restore moisture and seal the cuticles, preventing excess moisture absorption and frizz.

 

Avoid Over-Washing: Excessive washing can strip the hair of its natural oils and disrupt the pH balance. Wash your hair only when necessary and opt for gentle cleansing techniques.

 

Protective Hairstyles: Style your hair in protective hairstyles like braids, buns, or updos to minimize exposure to humidity and rainwater. These hairstyles help to keep the hair protected and reduce frizz.

 

Regular Hair Care Routine: Maintain a consistent hair care routine with products suited for your hair type. This includes gentle cleansing, conditioning, and incorporating pH-balancing treatments or leave-in products.

 

By following these tips, you can help maintain the optimal pH balance of your hair during the monsoon season and minimize the adverse effects of humidity and rainwater. Remember, each person's hair is unique, so it's essential to find a routine that works best for you and adapt it accordingly.
