How are you enjoying the winter weather? To be honest, there are a lot many things to enjoy in winters except a few. We know, you would have jumped straight to your dry skin. Itchy scalp, tangled hair and increased hair fall, sound familiar? Yes, these are some of the hair issues we face during the winter season and it is not a great idea to leave the issue untreated.
Taking steps to care for your hair is not something that men usually do. The misconception that the short hair doesn't need managing might be a reason for that. But, the harsh winters is not the time to be careless. We are not telling you to start a hair care routine. TOP FIVE tips you can follow to keep your hair healthy and strong during the winters are as follows:
• You Shampoo Might Be The Issue
A shampoo is a hair care product that we apply directly on our scalp. And if the shampoo is too harsh on your scalp, it can damage your hair. Remember, a happy scalp equals happy hair. So, shift to the organic and mild shampoos that are soft on the scalp
• Oil Your Hair
Your scalp, just like your skin, becomes dry during the winter. And so, it is important to keep it nourished and moisturized to maintain healthy hair. Oiling is one of the best ways to do that. Massage some coconut, olive or almond oil on your scalp, leave it on for about an hour or two and wash it off later.
• Let Your Hair Air Dry
We understand how tiring waiting for your hair to dry in the chilling winters can be. We tend to lose patience and use a blow dryer to just get it done with. We suggest you not do that. It not only damages your tresses but exposing your scalp to too much heat can cause itchy scalp, weaken the roots of your hair and thus lead to hair fall.
• Conditioning The Hair Is Important
Conditioning your hair is like applying a protective shield on your hair to prevent it from damage. It keeps the elasticity and moisture of your tresses intact. So, every time you shampoo your hair follow it up with a nourishing conditioner.
• Load Up On Those Essential Nutrients
Keep your diet in check during the winter season. Your diet has quite an impact on your hair health. Eat healthily and drink plenty of water. Avoid junk, oily and high sugar food as much as you can. It is not only important for your hair health but your overall health as well.
