Winters have set in! Time for hot cups of tea, wrapping yourself in jackets and coats and lazing around, enjoying the winter sun! But, girls, if you are thanking your stars for having put an end to all your hair problems from the scorching heat of summers, then hold on, there are a new set of problems awaiting which might damage your hair in winters.
The dryness in the winter air welcomes problems like dandruff and frizzy hair. But by following certain simple tips, you can keep your hair happy and healthy all throughout the winters. So, here are some ways to protect your hair from being a prey to the winter hair woes and make them look absolutely silky and shiny!
The winter dryness and cold weather suck all the moisture from your hair, and dry hair breaks very easily and gets damaged. Hence, it is very important to keep your hair conditioned so that the moisture stays. You can also try some natural homemade conditioners like the mixture of honey and olive oil or egg and yogurt!
Say No to Heating Appliances!
Avoid using heating appliances for your hair in winters, as they make your hair even more dry, which makes your hair more prone to breakage and damage. Vicious Circle!
Try covering your hair with scarves or caps when going out. It protects your hair from the sunlight and dust, protecting it from getting dry and damaged. You can use a pretty silk scarf or a cute woolen cap to look stylish and yet protecting your hair from any sort of damage. Try different styles of tying the scarves for a much cooler winter look!
Say Goodbye to Frizzy-ness!
Frizzy hair is one of the biggest problems in winters as there is too much static happening around us. From pullovers, jackets, scarves to caps, everything causes static around us which leads to frizzy hair. To avoid getting your hair frizzy, use a vented brush while combing your hair which has both plastic and boar bristles, and use lukewarm water to wash your hair as hot water leads to drying of the scalp! Try using a leave-in conditioner to retain the moisture!
Shake Hands with Olive Oil!
Applying olive oil is one of the most effective ways to keep your hair healthy and shiny in winters. Heating two spoons of olive oil and massaging it in your scalp not only gives an extra shine to your hair but also protects your hair from getting frizzy and dandruff!
Go for Up-do Hairstyles!
Try tying up your hair in some dazzling up-do hairstyles in winters. This will not only reduce your hair’s exposure to heat and sun, but also looks amazing in the festive season. Use some nice bandannas, hairbands and clips to accentuate the look as well as keep your hair protected!
No Entry for Dandruff!
Winters and dandruff go hand in hand, the winters set in and the dandruff also sets in! Lack of moisture makes your scalp dry which leads to dandruff. So the best solution is, heat some coconut oil and add a few drops of lemon juice and massage it gently onto your scalp. This will provide your scalp the much needed moisture and also prevents dandruff!
So, girls, say no to all the winter hair problems and keep your hair happy and healthy all winter. Enjoy this festive season and flaunt your ‘luscious locks’ to turn all the heads towards you!
Happy hair care!
