In a few weeks time winter would set in. This means that the weather would become drier and this could damage your hair in various ways. Here are 5 essential hair care tips which you could use to prevent the hair loss in winter.
Fight the flakes
Your scalp would get drier and itchier during the winter months owing to the lack of moisture in the air. This would lead to some problems like dandruff and aggravated scalp irritation. These could ultimately lead to hair fall. To prevent this you would need a couple of tablespoons of olive or coconut oil and a teaspoon of lemon juice. You would need to heat the oil for a couple of seconds until it is warm and then mix it with the lemon juice. You just have to massage the oil into your scalp and leave it in for 20-30 minutes. Rinse it out with shampoo and condition.
During winters you might be wearing hoodies, sweater, scarves, gloves, and beanies. All these might make your hair, into a static, frizzy mess. To prevent this you use a vented hair brush that has a combination of plastic and boar bristles while combing your hair. You also need to wash your hair only with lukewarm water, not hot water. You could also apply a leave-in conditioner to keep your hair smooth.
Shine and bounce
During winter the lack of moisture in winter not only dries out your scalp and makes your hair frizzy. Apart from this it also would leave your hair looking dull and lifeless. You need to brush your hair with a wide-toothed wooden comb to remove tangles. You must also apply raw honey to the full length of your hair from the roots to the tips. Your hair could be covered up your hair with a shower cap or towel and needs to be left on for about 30 minutes. Thereafter wash off with lukewarm water. Honey is a humectant that seals in the moisture. It helps to restore shine and bounce to dull and damaged hair.
Drying your hair: do it right
While drying your hair, make sure you never put your hair up while it is still damp. You should know that damp hair and scalps attract a lot of problems like dandruff, breakage, and split ends. Therefore never rub your hair dry with a towel. This friction would cause damage. You need to gently squeeze the excess moisture out with a towel and then use a blow dryer on the cool setting.
During the dry winters your hair needs all the moisture it can get. This makes conditioning a crucial part of your regular hair care routine. It is necessary for using hair oils and deep conditioning packs at least once a week for your hair health.
