Hair Care Tips For Winter Season

Drinking lots of water is the foundation of hair care during winter. You should drink 8 ounces of water every day, it will ensure that your skin and hair are maintained hydrated and healthy.

Cover your head

Cover your head with a scarf or a hat to protect your hair from environmental harshness, and minimize its exposure to cold air causing damaged hair in winter.

Use a humidifier

Adding humidity to your room during winters, ensures that your skin and hair doesn’t dry out easily. A humidifier helps add moisture to the air, helps you breath easily, and keeps dry skin conditions at bay. Limp hair, itchy skin, cracked lips and heels, skin allergies, rashes, scalp dryness, and dandruff during winter can all be checked with the use of a humidifier. But a humidifier is not a replacement for skin and hair care in winter. A humidifier will enhance your winter hair care, and is not an alternative to good hair care products and winter hair care regime.

Commit to a weekly hair mask

A weekly application of a DIY hair mask helps improve dry hair in winter. Hair masks add a protective layer to the hair strands, and lock the natural hair moisture:

  • Take a ripe banana and mash it.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of yogurt and 1 tablespoon of to it
  • Mix it to form a uniform consistency
  • Apply it on to the damp hair
  • Leave it for 30 minutes
  • Wash with warm water
  • Keep the hair covered after washing for 10 mins with a towel to let it dry naturally.

Comb carefully

Never comb the wet hair. Begin by detangling the hair ends and slowly detangle the hair length. Use a broad toothed comb, as it causes minimum hair breakage. Take your time to gently comb the hair, harsh strikes damage the hair.

Get regular trims

Trimming not only ensures good hair growth but also lessens hair fall in winter, and helps detangle the hair better. Getting regular hair trims reduces the appearance of split ends and checks frizzy hair.

Avoid heat styling

Heated tools and hair styling chemicals make the hair dry, dull, frizzy and damaged. Using heat styling makes the dry winter hair more dehydrated and limp. This can cause excessive hair fall in winter.

Take care of your diet

Diet plays the most important role in healing any body issue from within. A good diet rich in proteins, and essential fatty acids nourishes the skin, scalp and hair internally. This makes the hair follicles stronger, gives you shiny hair, and prevents dullness and dandruff in winter. Consume seasonal fruits and green leafy vegetables that are rich in fibers, have a cup of yogurt or buttermilk everyday, add lentils, sprouts and fish to your winter hair care diet.

Always use a hair conditioner

A hair conditioner  smoothens the hair, makes it easier to manage hair in winter, reduces breakage and split ends, and protects the hair shaft from environmental damage. The hair cuticles that open up during hair wash and shampoo applications, get sealed back with the use of hair conditioner. This locks the nutrients and natural hair moisture and shields the hair from pollutants.
