Hair care for winter

Is your hair dull and frizzy in the winters? Or do you go on an itching spree thanks to the dry dandruff? Does your hair tends to lose its shine and appears limp and lacks the volume and bounce? The winter season can be a nightmare for everyone. Ranging from skin issues to hair issues and health issues, the season can get you down. We’ve listed simple tips that you can follow this winter to let your tresses be tame and healthy! Read on to know how you can get the best hair care this winter.

Get rid of the dandruff

One of the most common problems that one faces in the winter is the problem of an itchy scalp, thanks to the dandruff.  Winters can dry out the scalp and the hair, so during the winter season it is important that you treat your hair at least once a week to a deep conditioning treatment. Such treatments will help to replenish the moisture in your hair. If you do not have the time to step out of the house, warm some Ayurvedic hair oil in a copper vessel and apply to your hair. Use Ayurvedic dandruff removal oil that will not only nourish your hair but also aid in the removal of dandruff. Use a hair mask to deep condition your hair and let it get the required nourishment.

Avoid styling tools

Avoid the hot rollers and irons to style your hair. Instead choose to dry your hair the natural way. Pat it dry with a towel and stand out in the sun to let your hair dry naturally. Using styling tools can tend to dry and damage your hair. In the winter season, your hair tends to get dry because of the lack of moisture content. When you use styling tools you are making the hair dry further and depleting it off all moisture content. This can damage your hair and cause it to look limp, damaged and dull. Not to mention that it will also lead to split ends!

Shampoo and condition

Chuck out those shampoos that are filled with nasties. Instead opt for SLS and paraben free shampoos and conditioners that are gentle and safe for your hair. Using natural and organic options ensures that your hair is treated well. Wash your hair with lukewarm water and always follow up with a mild conditioner. Avoid an absolute hot shower because it can cause damage to your hair. Post the shampoo use a wide tooth comb to brush your hair and detangle.

Choose your style

Choose a style that will be a no-fuss and less maintenance option. Avoid complicated styles that may require you to style or gel your hair. Trim your hair once in two months to avoid split ends. When you are stepping out of your home, use a scarf to tie your hair. Do not use rubber bands that can cause breakage when you pull it out, instead opt for simple styles like pinning the hair or using scrunchies to tie your hair. Use a light hair mist that will give the required nourishment to your hair when you are out.

What you can also do is indulge in a protein rich diet that will ensure your hair gets the required nourishment by food, thus keeping your hair healthy and shining. Follow these four tips to ensure that your tresses are at their best this winter.
