However this season is perfect for a cup of hot coffee and starry nights but let’s not ignore the fact that the dry and dirty weather can wreak your hair altogether. So, precautions are must. Your hair starts to find it harder to retain moisture, making it brittle and prone to breaking and damage, not to mention the frizz and static that often comes with your winter wardrobe.
While you take that all in , we have some great solutions for the Winter hair problems .
Take a look at these simple steps that will help you keep the damage away this season.
1.Say goodbye to the flakes.
Due to this super dry weather , your scalp becomes drier and itchier due to the lack of moisture in the air. This leads to issues like scalp irritation and dandruff. Dandruff can lead to hair fall as well. What we really need to realize that dandruff and scalp irritation is a manageable problem with proper care. For this, all you need is a couple drops of olive or coconut oil and just a tablespoon of lemon juice. Heat the oil for few minutes and mix it with lemon juice. Massage this mixture to your scalp for 20-25 minutes and wash off with a mild shampoo. You can also use beer to wash your hair. Wait, is beer good for health?
Well, we don’t know about health but it can do wonders for your hair.
Also, invest in a good quality shampoo and conditioner for that extra smoothness. But don’t use too much of that shampoo as it might not come off that easily.
2.Take Control of this fizz
The most annoying and irritating things about winters is the static. The woolens the sweater the gloves , all of these things seem to become a team and make your hair static and frizzy. But don’t worry , we have got your covered.!
To over power this use a vented hair brush that has a combination of plastic and boar bristles while combing your hair. Wash your hair only with lukewarm water, not hot water, as the latter will strip away the natural oils that protect and nourish your hair. Apply a leave-in conditioner to keep your hair smooth.
Apply a hair treatment mask once a week to your routine.
3.Take care of that shine and Bounce.
Due to the lack of moisture in the winters, your hair not only dries up but it starts to look life less and dull. For this kind of problem- Brush your hair with a wide-toothed wooden comb to remove tangles and apply raw honey to the length of your hair from the roots to the tips. Cover up your hair with a shower cap or towel and leave it on for about 30 minutes. Wash off with luke warm water only . Honey helps to get that shine and bounce in your hair.
4.Olive oil works like Magic
Oils are angels for your hair. Weather its coconut or Olive oil. For your hair , just take two or three tablespoons of olive oil and massage it on your scalp. This slow massaging helps the oil penetrate deep into the roots. Massage will help to keep the scalp moisturized and improve blood circulation. It will also prevent hair fall.
5.Drying your hair: Do this right.
Drying your hair completely can be a painfull job . No matter what , you should never do your hair while its still wet. Damp hair and scalps attract a lot of problems like dandruff, breakage, and split ends. You must also never rub your hair dry with a towel as the friction will cause damage. The best way to dry your hair in winters is to gently squeeze out the excess water with the help of a towel. And blow dry your hair on the cool setting.
We recommend that you should avoid your hairdryer. Let your hair dry out naturally . But if you want to speed things up then make sure that you hold the dryer at least 15 cms away from your scalp.
