Who does not want healthy hair? It makes us look good, boosts our confidence and even give us boasting rights. Maintaining healthy hair might not be the easiest thing to do but a couple of dietary and lifestyle changes here and there can definitely help. Come winter, our hair starts to feel brittle, our scalp starts to get dry and flaky and we have dandruff problems like never before. Winters and hair can never be good friends and one is always in the need of an efficacious hair fall solution.
Here are 7 ways to keep your hair healthy in the winter –
- Be careful with your shampoo habits
It is a fact that shampoo helps get rid of the dirt and other products on our hair and scalp, however, shampooing every day can cause our scalp to lose its natural oils which are essential to keep the scalp moisturized. Shampoo only once or twice a week. If you have naturally oily scalp, try using a dry shampoo when showering.
- Be easy with the heat
Everyone loves a hot shower on a cold day, It helps you relax and find peace in the bathtub. However, hot water can steal the essential moisture of our skin and hair. Try keeping your water lukewarm when showering. Keep your showers short. If you want to indulge, make sure you are wearing a shower cap to protect your hair.
- Moisturize properly
It is important to keep your hair moisturized at all times during the winter, lack of moisture can lead to flaky and dry scalp which eventually lead to rapid hair fall. Apply natural hair cream right after your shower and gently massage it on the scalp to keep it hydrated for long.
- Never skip on the conditioner
Conditioning is an essential part of every hair care routine, but it becomes all the more important during winters. Make sure you use a light conditioner and leave it on for a while before leaving the shower.
- Avoid heat based styling products
It might be fun to blow dry our hair and try out new hair styles with the curlers and straighteners. The styling endeavors might come at a price. Such styling products heat the scalp and leave it dry. Use your styling products sparingly during the winters.
- Get a hat
Always wear a hat before stepping out in the winter breeze. The cold dry and harsh hair can wreak havoc on healthy hair. Grab a beanie or satin hat that would not cause your scalp to sweat if you wear it for long.
- Massage your scalp with essential oils.
Sometimes the blood circulation in our scalp slows down in the winter, massaging the scalp with essential oils extracted from lavender, tea tree oil, or peppermint can help improve blood circulation in the scalp and also help keep it moisturized.
