While the winter brings holiday vibes, hot cocoa drinks, warm clothing, and indoor hangouts, it also brings scalp dryness, hair fall, dandruff, and many more hair problems.
The chilly season can make your hair dull, dry and rough. But no worries! The solution to these problems lies in simple, yet effective measures.
You might have usually heard about this tip in summers, but this is as important in winters too! Your body needs hydration around the year and your hair needs water to keep its hair follicles healthy and strong. So, continue drinking water, at least 2 liters per day.
Shampoo & Condition Regularly
Many people avoid washing their hair during winter, but it is one of the most necessary factors determining hair protection. Use a mild shampoo and conditioner combo to wash your hair about 3 times a week to keep your hair clean and smooth.
Wear a Scarf or Hat Outside
You might think wearing a cap or scarf might fry your hair more, but it does not. Wearing a cap or scarf made of soft material keeps the moisture in your hair locked and protects it from getting dried out.
Moisturize Hair with Regular Oiling
During winter, the scalp gets drier than in any other season. This is mainly due to less moisture in the air. Oiling hair at regular intervals during winter nourishes your hair and helps retain moisture.
Comb and Handle Hair with Care
Combing and handling your hair with care plays a very important role in maintaining them. It keeps them free from getting dull and dry in winter.
Avoid using a plastic comb as it can cause friction and damage hair. Instead, use a wooden comb to detangle your hair. This causes less friction leading to less frizz in hair.
Avoid using Heat Styling Tools.
Avoid using ultra-hot settings while blow-drying your hair. If you want to go for blow drying, use the lowest settings or let your hair dry on its own.
