Changing seasons call for change in your haircare routine as well. Since winter is here, your hair is likely to get drier, frizzier and more prone to hair breakage as well.
But with the right haircare products and tips, you can ensure your hair stays healthy and well-nourished.
How To Take Care of Hair in Winter?
Avoid heat styling:
Your hair is already dry during winter and heat styling further draws moisture out of your hair leading to hair breakage and frizz. So, stay away from straighteners or hair dryers to protect your hair from heat damage. Instead, let your hair dry naturally and choose heatless hairstyles.
Use nourishing products:
Since your scalp and hair need more moisture during winter, pick organic haircare products made with nourishing plant oils and butters that help soften and moisturise your hair. It is also best to avoid sulfate-based shampoos which are harsh on your scalp and strip away the little moisture left in your hair.
Your hair needs a healthy dose of nutrients like protein, omega fats and vitamins to stay strong, smooth and nourished. So, eat a balanced diet filled with nutrient-rich food to keep your hair healthy. Fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds and even whole grains are a great addition to your diet.
Avoid plastic combs:
Combing your hair with plastic combs can lead to static hair and increased friction. Use wooden combs and brushes instead to gently detangle or style your hair.
A weekly hair mask can help soften your hair and keep them healthy. So once a week use a deep conditioning hair mask for extra nourishment.
Avoid hot water:
Hot water strips moisture from your hair. So, use lukewarm or cold water instead while shampooing your hair to avoid frizz.
How Often Should You Wash Your Hair in Winter?
Your hair wash routine should be decided based on how quickly your scalp gets oily and dirty. For most people, washing their hair twice a week is sufficient.
If your scalp gets sweaty and itchy due to workouts, you can wash your hair every 2-3 days. And if your scalp feels dry, wash your hair for 3-4 days.
Remember, washing your hair every day will make your hair dry and increase hair fall. So don't wash your hair more than 3 times a week to keep your hair and scalp healthy
Effective Hair Care Routine to Follow in Winter
Step 1: Pre shampoo
Start by applying a hair oil or hair mask. Divide your hair into sections and apply the product all over your hair and scalp. Massage your scalp for a few seconds and wait for at least 30-45 minutes before rinsing it away with shampoo. You can also leave it on overnight and rinse it the next morning.
Step 2: Shampoo
Take the required quantity of shampoo and dilute it with some water. Pour it on wet hair and gently massage your scalp with circular strokes. Rinse it away with water and repeat the step if necessary to cleanse your scalp thoroughly.
Step 3: Condition
Squeeze out excess water from your hair a apply a conditioner from the middle of the hair to the edges. Leave it on for up to 5 minutes before rinsing with water.
Step 4: Leave-in serum
After towel drying your hair, detangle your hair and apply a small quantity of hair serum through your hair to control frizz. Then let your hair air dry.
