Winters are our favorite season and the reason being it for the most happening holiday season in December or for enjoying the cozy nights inside our blankets. But the chilly breeze actually harms your luscious hair locks even more than you can think. Losing the shine, dull texture and brittle effects are some issues we all face. Hence it becomes very important to take care of your mane during the winters. We list here few ways which are extremely essential pointers and you should include this in your winter hair care routine.
1. OILING TO THE CORE
Oiling provides nutrition to the hair and helps in keeping it strong, silky, shiny and healthy. And in winters when our hair tends to become even drier, oiling properly becomes very important. So, try to use some kind of ayurvedic hot oils as that can be good during the winters in keeping you warm and also leave oil on your hair for more than 5 hours.
2. KEEP YOUR HAIR COVERED
Again, no matter which months of the year it is, you should keep your hair covered if you are stepping out of the house. Caps, mufflers, and hats keep your hair covered properly and also keeps you warm hence you need to do this. The cold breeze actually makes the hair dry. Do not forget to include this tip in your winter hair care routine at all.
3. GIVE STEAM SAUNA EFFECT TO YOUR HAIR
Yes, in this winter hair care routine I am talking about the Desi home spa therapy. This is essential during the winters because the steam makes your hair a bit humid and it helps in retaining warmth to your scalp and hair. All you need to do is damp your towel with less than lukewarm water and wrap it around your head for around 20 minutes and you are done.
4. LESS USE OF THE SHAMPOO, PLEASE
As compared to the summers, your hair is less sticky and oily during the winters because of no sweat. So, try to shampoo your hair less in this season. Continuous washing can make your hair drier than before. Also, do not use extremely hot water for hair wash. It would always be the best if you manage to wash your hair with cold water.
5. REGULATION OF YOUR DIET
I personally love winters because we can have a variety of fresh vegetables and fruits in our diet. Lacking proper and ample nutrition in your diet can show its effects on your hair and skin for sure. So, make sure you enjoy the winters eating all the healthy vegetables and fruits to ensure that you give a healthy life to your hair.
These were some of the effective winter hair care routines which all of us must follow to have healthy hair always. Each one of the tips we have talked about has an importance of its own and you cannot simply deny or argue on any.
