It's so cold outside. Winter season comes with whole new hair problems to deal with. All you need is a proper schedule and the preventive measures to take care of your hair during the winter season. While the season is perfect to get comfortable having a cup of hot cocoa, but you can’t ignore the fact that your hairs will get dry and harder if the right precautions are not taken on time. Due to this, the hairs don’t get enough moisture which makes it more brittle and prone to breaking and damage. To avoid these problems, it is important to maintain the right hair care routine for winter.
Haircare Tips For Winter
1. Fight With Your Dandruff
The scalp gets drier and itchier during winter due to lack of moisture in the air which leads to issues like dandruff and irritation. This dandruff can be manageable with the right care. Follow a remedy in which you can use a couple of tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Heat oil for a couple of seconds until it is warm and then mix with lemon juice. Massage your scalp with the oil and leave it in for 20-30 minutes. Rinse it out with shampoo and condition.
2. Control Frizzy Hairs
One of the most annoying things about winter is all of the static. The hoodies, sweater, scarves, gloves, and beanies all seem to gang up on your hair, making it a static, frizzy mess. Use a vented hairbrush that has a combination of plastic and boar bristles while combing your hair. Wash your hair only with lukewarm water as the latter will strip away the natural oils that protect and nourish your hair. Apply conditioner to keep your hair smooth.
3. Bouncy And Shiny Hairs
The lack of moisture in hairs leaves your hair look dull and lifeless. Comb out your hair with a wide-toothed wooden comb to remove tangles and apply raw honey to the length of your hair from roots to the tips. After applying honey, cover your hair with a shower cap or towel and leave it for about 30 minutes. Wash your hairs with lukewarm water. Honey helps to restore shine and bounce to dull and damaged hairs.
4. Use Olive Oil For Maintaining Hairs
Warm-up two teaspoons of olive oil and massage it slowly on your scalp. This slow massaging helps the oil to penetrate deep into the roots. This will keep your scalp moisturized and improve blood circulation, ensuring that your follicles get essential nourishment. It will also prevent hair fall. Optionally, you can use a few tablespoons of the oil to coat the entire length of your hair as a deep conditioning treatment.
5. Conditioning: Do It Right
The hair needs all the moisture it can get during winter, and thus conditioning becomes a vital part of your hair care routine. Using hair oils and deep conditioning packs at least once a week is important for maintaining the health of your hair. It is important that you end every wash with a conditioner. Shampoo your hair and then rinse it thoroughly. Once all the lather has been rinsed out, start applying the conditioner from the mid-lengths to the ends of your hair. Concentrate on the ends as they are the oldest and most damaged parts of your hair. Leave the conditioner in for a few minutes and then rinse it out with cool or lukewarm water. Then, end a wash with cool water as this will seal in the moisture and leave your hair feeling smooth and looking lustrous.
Practicing these tips will help you maintain your hair routine and the hair won't even recognize that it’s a winter season. All you need is a little extra care to ensure good hair health. Try these tips and keep your hair safe.
