The heat becomes bearable and the greener landscape is quite a sight. However, it’s also the time to take extra care of your tresses with the approaching rains. As the humidity levels rise, so does frizziness and chances of hair fall. Here are a few hair tips you should follow to save your hair from the monsoon:

1. Ensure your hair is dry
While you may have the urge to get your hair wet in a drizzle, remember that rain water is dirty and acidic, which is really bad for your hair. So,keep hair dry unless you’re caught in a torrential downpour. One of the simplest yet most effective monsoon hair care tips.

2. Twice a week is shampoo time
Use a mild yet deep cleansing shampoo to remove any residue on your scalp left behind by rain water.
It is easy to get frizzy, under nourished hair during monsoon and hence using a good shampoo goes a long way in nourishing your tresses and preventing fungal or bacterial infections.
And always shampoo from root to tip.

3. Champi
Nothing’s as good for your hair during the monsoon as a good old hair oil massage. It naturally boosts the moisture in your hair which revitalizes dry strands. What’s more, it offers deep conditioning too.
Remember not to use too much though else you’ll find yourself over-shampooing just to get it out, which will damage your hair.

4. Hold off on tying
By tying up your hair in the monsoon you’re inviting rain water to hibernate in your hair, which in turn will make it frizzier and limper. If you must tie your hair then go for loose ponytails and buns only.

5. Waterproof is good
The best way to protect your hair in the rains is to invest some money in a good quality waterproof jacket or hoodie.

6. Pick the right comb
A wide tooth comb is, hands down, your best bet in the rains. Not only does it help in detangling your tresses but it also serves as a good conditioning comb.

7. Condition the right way
The right way to condition your hair is to
a) avoid using too much conditioner and
b) apply conditioner only to the ends and lengths of your hair.
Use a wide tooth comb, as mentioned earlier, to give the conditioner a good spread and follow it up with a rinse with cold water.

8. Eat right
In order to strengthen your hair follicles you must eat foods that are rich in protein, iron and omega 3 fatty acids like mackerel, salmon, walnuts, spinach and dahi.

10. Explore natural alternatives

Bangalore: A rare genetic brain disease causing a movement disorder has been reported from Mumbai where a 21-year-old patient has been diagnosed with ‘Myoclonus-Dystonia’ with facial, neck and hand shaking and jerking due to rare genetic disorder called ADCY5-related dyskinesia.

This is a rare disease with less than 400 cases reported all over the world. The disorder is known to cause abnormal involuntary tremors in the body and is usually seen in children, but this is the first time it has been reported in an Indian adult patient.

He suffered from the condition since he was 13, but these jerks were initially mild. This progressed to moderate severity over the last few years. “We were able to manage the trembling till the time they were mild. With time, the intensity increased and so did the frequency which hampered daily activities and even any work that needed concentration”, told the parents of the 21 year old.

Dr VL Ramprasad, COO, MedGenome Labs that performed the genetic testing said, “ADCY5 mutation causes abnormal involuntary movements affecting the neck, arms and face. This mutation can also lead to episodic worsening triggered by anxiety, stress or inactivity -or characteristically periods before or after sleep. We have now published this case in MDCP (Movement Disorders Clinical Practice), which is a well-known journal.”

The doctor informed that when the patient came to them he would get these movements in spells intermittently in the early years. His whole body was shaking when he was anxious or even concentrating on an activity. After initial tests the doctors were convinced that he had a rare genetic disorder and tests confirmed ADCY5 gene mutation
