These simple tips will help you fight back the harshness of winters and give you beautiful and manageable hair.
Winter might be the most delightful time of year to snuggle under the covers and enjoy a hot cup of cocoa but not for your hair. With the decrease in moisture and dry breeze, hair problems like frizz, rough texture, split ends and overall damage are bound to occur.
Fix it by adding a hair mask to your hair care routine. Along with your regular shampoo, conditioner and maybe even oil and serum, hair masks work swiftly to penetrate the follicle and revive it from all kinds of winter hair damage.
Keep your tresses bouncy and full of life with these home remedies, no matter how cold it gets.
Regular Oiling: Oiling your hair is an old yet an effective method to combat frizz during the cold months. Mix castor and coconut oil and massage it on your scalp. It soothes your scalp and increases blood circulation. Moreover, it is quite effective in curing dandruff, which is one of the causes of dryness.
Lukewarm Water for Hair: Use moderately warm water for washing your hair, neither too hot nor too cold. This helps close the cuticles of your hair strands, sealing in the moisture. Closed cuticles prevent dirt to enter and also shield the scalp from pollution.
Avoid Hair Dryer: Don't use a hair dryer to dry your hair. Intense heat from the hair dryer soaks up the moisture from your hair cuticles, resulting in dry and dull hair. Frequent and prolonged usage of a hair dryer may make your hair dry and frizzy too. Hence, avoid using artificial heat to dry your hair and let your hair dry naturally.
Egg Yolk: Egg yolk is one of the best home remedies to manage your frizzy hair. All you have to do is to combine two yolks and apply it on your scalp and split ends for 20-30 minutes and wash them. This mask will give you shiny and moisturised hair.
Banana and Avocado Mask: Make a paste of one ripe banana and two avocados. Apply this mask on your scalp for 20-30 minutes and then wash it with a mild shampoo. This hair mask will give elasticity and moisture to your hair and help in smoothening the hair strands.
Rice, Milk and Honey Paste: Rice, milk and honey paste is the most effective remedy of all times. All you have to do is to soak rice in water for about 15 minutes and then use that rice water to mix it with milk and honey to make a paste. Apply it on your hair for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse your hair with lukewarm water. It will add volume to your hair and will strengthen the roots.
