With the right winter hair care tips, you can tackle hair problems easily. All you have to do is incorporate a few tips and tricks in your daily hair care routine.
Cold temperatures during winter are harsh on your hair because of the lack of moisture in the air. This causes them to become dry and more prone to hair fall.
Additionally, all the woollen clothes you wear create static friction, which makes the hair frizzy.
But with the right winter hair care tips, you can tackle this problem easily. All you have to do is incorporate a few tips and tricks in your daily hair care routine.
Keep your hair and scalp nourished: Keeping your scalp clean and nourished is something that you should be doing throughout the year. Winters call for more care. One of the most important winter hair care tips is to apply natural oil to your hair and scalp to combat dryness effectively. Concentrate on the tips as much as the scalp to avoid split ends during this time of the year.
Avoid frequent shampooing: During winter, your scalp won’t get as oily as it usually does. Therefore, you do not need to wash your hair too frequently. You may also switch to dry shampoos instead of using regular shampoos during this time of the year. However, remember that frequent use of dry shampoos is harmful for your hair. You can also invest in a mild, nourishing shampoo that won’t cause dryness or scalp irritations.
Avoid stepping out with wet hair: Drying your hair in winter can be quite a task, especially if you have thick and long hair. But, stepping out with wet hair can make it more prone to damage and dryness. Using a drying towel is also recommended if your hair is already weak and prone to breakage. Apart from this, you should apply good hair serum or protective oil before you step out of your house.
Stop using heat and styling tools: Using heat and hair styling tools is always regarded as one of the key elements which damage your hair strands. During winters, the hair is more prone to damage and adding heat makes it more vulnerable to breakage and dryness. Reduce the usage of these tools. But if you must use them, be sure to apply some natural or ayurvedic heat protection spray or serum before styling to prevent damage. This is not only important during the winters, but also throughout the year.
Protect your hair with a scarf or cap: We have all heard the saying, ‘prevention is better than cure’, and this stands true for your hair as well. Instead of taking care of your already damaged hair, prevent damage from the dry air by using a scarf or a shawl. While doing so, make sure you are not damaging your hair strands by handling them carefully.
