Monsoons bring smiles, respite from sweltering heat. Even though we all love getting drenched in the rain, a downpour can be harsh on your hair.

The various environmental changes and the dissolved pollutants can turn the rain water acidic and making it extremely harmful for the hair and scalp. As a result, your hair may turn dry, frizzy and lustreless and also invite several hair problems like dandruff, itching and hair fall.

Here are 3 easy, DIY hair packs you can try at home to keep your hair woes at bay and get that extra shine and bounce back in your hair.
