15 Essential Winter Hair Care Tips You Need To Know
Winters can be cold and ruthless on your tresses. You might think that you are the only unlucky soul to have an itchy scalp, embarrassing dandruff problems, dry hair and falling hair.
Misery seeks company; allow me to tell you that these problems, seemingly affecting just us, are actually very common winter issues for hair. If you are searching for ways to beat these issues that make you want to pull your hair in frustration, go through this list of 15 winter hair care tips.
1 Hydrating shampoo
Don’t wash or shampoo your hair too much. If you must, use a hydrating shampoo which moisturises hair.
2 Dry or water less shampoo
If you are uncomfortable about not washing your hair frequently, you can opt for dry or water-less shampoos in between your regular shampoo cycle. Just spray it on your dry hair, let it sit for a while and then brush your hair.
3 Leave-in conditioner
A leave-in conditioner works in two ways. It helps lock in moisture. It also works as a barrier between delicate hair and hot styling equipment.
4 Regular haircut
Dry, unnourished hair can result in split ends. Get a haircut before winter sets in to prevent that.
5 Smoothing serum
Dry and frizzy hair, also called unmanageable hair, can be tamed with a little bit of hair smoothing serum. This coats your hair shaft and prevents static from building up.
6 Never leave with wet hair
Make minimal use of hair dryers as those tend to dry out your hair even more. Having said that, don’t leave home with wet hair as the cuticle gets brittle when the cold air hits it.
