What should be done to prevent hair from wind? I use two wheeler.

Traveling by a two wheeler obviously exposes your hair to wind, not to mention a great deal of pollution too. Regular exposure to wind and sun can result in damage to hair that needs to be avoided. If your hair consistently comes in contact with wind, it becomes dry, unmanageable and tangled. While you are on the road during the day, your hair stands exposed to the grave risk of ultra violet rays too. Take utmost care of protecting your hair from the sun, as it can weaken your hair. If the sun is combined with strong wind blowing, you need to be all the more careful. You need to shield your hair as well as take additional steps to tackle this problem. Whenever you ride your two-wheeler, it is essential for you to wear a scarf or use a helmet. This will guard your hair from the wind. Make sure that your hair is well covered with the scarf.

You will also need to take proper hair care and look after it hair well, besides protecting it. Determine your hair type - whether it is normal, dry or oily, and choose your shampoo accordingly. You need to shampoo your hair thoroughly, ideally every alternate day. Take a head bath as soon as possible after a long ride. Also, use a good conditioner every time you wash your hair, and deep condition once a week. Massage your hair with oil, preferably warm, at least twice a week. Before washing your hair, comb it thoroughly. This is an effective way to loosen the grime on the scalp and to make your hair more manageable later on. Avoid combing your hair when it's wet, as hair is the weakest when wet and can suffer breakage and loss.

You may also be experience that your hair gets tangled due to the blowing wind. To solve this problem, take some vinegar and mix it with water in equal amounts. Shampoo your hair and condition it. After that, apply the vinegar solution to the hair thoroughly. Rinse your hair again, and then dry it. You can also take a ripe avocado and mix it with 2 egg yolks. Apply it on the washed hair and keep it for about twenty minutes. After that, wash it with water thoroughly. You will notice some heartening results after using this procedure. In addition, regularly wet your hair a bit, apply a leave-in conditioner, and use a wide-toothed comb to detangle your hair. Start combing at the bottom first, and then move upwards.
