How to care for your hair this winter

Winter has already set in. With the drop in the humidity in the weather outside the water content in your body drops. This can create havoc in your skin, body and hair.

To keep your hair looking silky, soft and gorgeous, you might have to change your hair care routine to manage your locks during this dry and dreary weather.

Here are a few tips to care for your hair.

Invest in good quality products

Good quality shampoo and conditioner are a must to cleanse and moisturize your scalp and hair. Make sure to pick mild gentle products that do not strip off natural oils.

Use of hair conditioner is a must as it locks moisture in your tresses and prevents breakage.

Using the right kind of products that suits your hair and scalp condition makes it easier to maximise moisture and avoid frizziness.

Hair treatment mask

A hair mask that restores the lost moisture in the hair is a good way of treating dry hair. Use a good homemade hair mask once a week. Concentrate on the length of the hair strands while applying your favourite hair mask, this way you can keep your locks healthy.

No to hairdryer

It is always best suggested that you dry your hair naturally. If you cannot avoid using your hair dryer, make sure that you don’t overdo it as it can leave your hair frizzy and unmanageable.

Set your hair dryer to cool mode before using it. Although it is a little time-consuming, it is a better way of using a hairdryer, especially during winter.

Don’t expose wet hair to the weather outside

This is the most important thing that you should remember and follow. Do not set outside with wet hair. The cold weather outside will freeze your hair at the cuticle and increase the damage.

Once dried, cover your hair with a scarf or a hat to ensure that you save your tresses from breakage.

Use natural oils to nourish

With the onset of cold dry winter, the scalp becomes dry, itchy, and scaly and problems like dandruff and other irritations occur. Using natural oils through all seasons is an essential part of the hair routine.

During winter, a hot oils treatment with good massage promotes a healthy scalp and nourished shiny hair.

Natural oils like coconut oil, avocado oil and almond oil work extremely well in combating all hair and scalp-related problems.

Trim your hair

To make sure that your hair is growing longer healthily, you should trim the ends of your hair at regular intervals. This will get rid of split ends and dry areas in your tresses allowing things to refresh and grow beyond the length.
