Winter Hair Care 101: 5 Ways To Protect Your Luscious Locks From The Cold

We all love the sweater weather, but it comes with a few beauty concerns, and no, we are not talking about just your skin. If you are already working on your skin, kudos to you. But it is equally important to update your hair care regimen as you prepare your hair to fight the cold.

Say Goodbye To Bad Hair Days

Our hair tends to get drier during winter. The temperature drop can make your hair brittle and can even lead to hair fall. But that does not mean that you need to dread the winter season. We have listed a few standard hair issues and what you need to do to protect your hair from the cold.

Brittle Strands

One of the most common hair issues during winter is dry and brittle hair. The air lacks moisture, and your hair can become dull and lifeless in such an environment. What you can do is to use hair masks, deep conditioners, and moisturizing sprays. These products will give your hair low moisture and make them look bouncy, soft, and shiny. It is highly recommended to avoid using curling irons and straightening rods too often as they can damage your hair with the heat they emit.

Itchy Scalp

Your scalp tends to get flaky during winters, causing itchiness, dandruff, and even hair fall. One way to avoid this is to use moisturizing hair products, from your shampoo to hair conditioner to hair creams, which have gentle formulas. Apart from this, applying hair oil every week is imperative to maintaining a healthy mane. Make sure you wash your hair only once or twice a week.

Matted & Tangled Hair

Tangled hair is a big pet-peeve we all can relate with. Let’s be real; sometimes we wake up looking like a homeless drug addict, just because of the way our hair looks. While it is hard to avoid tangled hair altogether, you can always make it better.

It is better to up your game when it comes to hairstyling instead of looking like you haven’t combed your hair in days. Consider tying your hair into a bun or a braid to avoid looking like you haven’t combed your hair in days. 

Increase In Frizz

Whether you have curly hair or straight hair, you can understand the plight of dealing with frizzy hair. As much as it is unavoidable, there are ways to reduce frizziness and static hair problems if you are willing to make an effort.

A big tip to avoid frizzy hair is to make sure you dry your hair before leaving your house. Using a microfibre towel to dry your hair and avoiding heat styling tools is also an excellent way to prevent frizz.

Split Ends

Split ends are the primary cause of many hair problems. It is better to get rid of split ends by getting your hair trimmed after every six months or so. To make sure split ends don’t get the better of your hair, make use of bio-oil on the ends of your hair.

These are a few DIY ways to ensure your hair stays healthy and bouncy, not just in winters but the whole year-round. 

Take charge of your hair, and make a steady effort every day to make every day a good hair day!
