Hair care: These home remedies will help you get rid of frizzy hair this winter
Here are some wonderful winter hair care home remedies to get rid of frizz this winter at home.
This time when freezing winds, dry air and chilled temperatures together leave no stone unturned to make you 'feel the frizz' and your blankets do not let you head to the salon. Winter season is synonymous to the season of dryness and that's why winter hair care isn't that easy.
The lack of humidity and the imbalance in temperature - cold outside and warm indoors - make our hair dry, frizzy and unmanageable. Detangling dry hair is also very cumbersome and leads to hair fall, which further reduces the volume of your hair.
Moreover, equipment like dryers and straighteners add up dryness and make the hair condition even worse. But, fret not! Here are some wonderful winter hair care home remedies to get rid of frizz this winter at home.
Use 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
