Winter time is coming and I think we can all agree that ‘it’s the most wonderful time of the year!’
The days will be colder. The nights will be cozier.
But it won’t be wonderful for the hair. No it won’t… Unless we follow proper hair care
The differences in outside and indoor temperature can cause roughness, dryness to the strands of our hair. In result, itchy scalp and frizz :/ :/
(I hate frizzzz) :/
Don’t forget to take of your Skin as well during this winter.
I gathered some of my favorite tips that I’m gonna follow to maintain shiny, non-frizzy and super healthy hair.
Fall in love with Silk for Healthy Hair!
That means silk pillow cases, silk scarves, pretty much anything that’s touching my hair/face should have silk.
It definitely is a small luxury but with huge benefits.
The smooth fibers of silk helps keep moisture close to the skin and hair – according to Jennifer Peterson (Dermatologist)
This seems pretty simple and I think everyone knows about it too.
Still not everyone stick to it.
Let’s face it, drinking more water will result into more toilet visits and the chilly washroom during winter is a hard task.
But in the end, we all hate rough, dry, annoying itchy hair. So, include 7-8 glasses of water everyday this winter.
It’s easy. Since we’re all avoiding showers during the cold. (or is it just me ?? :S )
Shampooing more than twice a week can suck up all the oils, leaving dry hair, prone to breakage.
Instead, you should condition after each shower.
As I said earlier in this post, cold days cause dryness and thus the hair becomes more delicate.
Try combing the hair couple times-a-day.
I would suggest using a wide tooth comb. It’s much gentler on the strands, causing less breakage.
You are what you eat!
Next time you go grocery shopping, get plenty of omega-3 fatty acids like fish, nuts, olive oil, flax seeds, and avocados for a healthy scalp.
Read my Fruits for Hair for a list of fruits to add in your diet for better looking healthy hair .
Fill up your meals with foods rich in vitamin C, which is excellent in boosting the production of collagen (protein that maintains skin and other tissues).
Moisturize your scalp!
Conditioners are for the ends but moisturizing your scalp is also essential.
Include a rich hair mask before taking a shower.
Oils are amazing for your hair during winter to re-gain moisture. Apply it to the roots of the hair and leave it for (at least) two hours before washing.
(I prefer leaving the oil overnight)
Hope you find my tips helpful. Have a Great Hair Day!
