Healthy Hair Tips
Now that winter is here, it sure is wreaking havoc especially to our hair. The colder it gets, the more unmanageable the hair seems to become. So to help you get rid of dull, dry and frizzy hair this winter, we bring you some tips to keep it manageable, healthy, frizz free and shiny.
Keep yourself hydrated because dehydration leads to hair breakage, damage, flaky scalp and frizzy hair. Hydration from the inside will reflect on the outside.
Wash with warm/cold water
A steamy shower might be just what you’re looking for when the temperature is low but hot water can remove the moisture from your hair making it more brittle and more vulnerable to split ends and breaking. Wash your hair with lukewarm water and follow up with a cool rinse to avoid the damage.
Air drying your hair is the best. Blow drying increases the chance of breakage by drawing out moisture. Heat-free drying helps keep your hair shiny and healthy. If you are short on time, take your shower in the evening so your tresses can dry naturally overnight. Embrace your natural hair and air-dry it whenever possible. Refrain from straightening or curling your hair during the winter. Use this time to explore new styles like twists, braids, and buns.
Don’t leave house with wet hair
Wet hair is more fragile and hence more vulnerable to damage than dry hair. Walking outside in winter with a wet hair can cause it to break and appear frizzier. While air drying is best, but if you are in a hurry, it’s better to blow dry your hair than go outdoors with a saturated mane and cause more damage.
Don’t forget oiling
When winter creates havoc on your hair, oil-based hair treatment is your solution. Restore moisture with oil hair treatment or deep condition it with mix of different oils. Use Argan oil has leave in conditioner to instantly revitalize dry, frizz-free and damaged hair. Apply nourishing hair oil at the ends daily to help replenish moisture, prevent split ends and protect your hair.
Protect your hair
Cold winter weather take its toll on your hair. The best way to offer protection to your hair against the elements is to cover your head with a scarf or a hat. Don’t forget to make sure that it’s not too tight that it will restrict blood circulation in your scalp. Wearing a hat can also lead to sweat build up that might irritate your scalp.
These are some of the tips to follow, to fight dryness and frizzy hair. Share them with your friends and let them know what they can do to protect their hair in the cold weather.
