Wash Those Locks
So you’ve sealed up your drafty windows and doors, torn out the carpet and replaced your air filters, but you’re still suffering from allergies indoors?
It might be because of those long locks.
Your hair is a hidden repository for allergens, especially if you spend much of your time outside. If you’re having mysterious allergic reactions, despite taking precautions, it may be because pollen is hitching a ride on your hair and into your home.
Hair is covered in the natural oils of your scalp, which makes it an absolute pollen-magnet, and the longer it is, the more pollen can attach to it.
To avoid this, try putting your hair up in a bun while out, which minimizes the surface area that pollen to which pollen can stick. But above all, wash your hair before bed each night—you don’t want to end up breathing pollen while you sleep, after all.
Keep your hair clean, and you’ll cut down on your allergen exposure this summer—guaranteed.
