Winter and hair care can make many women go crazy. When winter weather hits, a bad hair day can be a major problem for many that can last an entire season. No matter how much you try, the hair becomes frizzy, brittle and dry. In addition, you need to deal with dandruff and split end problems.
Hair experts say harsh winter weather (snow, rain and ice cold wind) and a change in temperature are the main reasons behind many of the winter hair problems. The use of headscarves, hats and caps in the winter also cause static hair.
Fortunately, no matter what is causing your winter hair woes, you can take both protective and replenishing steps to enjoy beautiful and healthy hair this winter. During the winter days, it is more important to pay attention to your hair care routine as well as lifestyle and dietary habits.
Here is the ultimate winter hair checklist.
Change your conditioner
Different seasons have different impact on your hair. This is why you need to change your hair care products during the winter days. To keep your hair shiny, glossy during the cold, and windy winter days switch your regular conditioner to an intense conditioner. This type of conditioner is good for dry hair, which lacks moisture.
After washing your hair, use an intense conditioner, wait for a few minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water. For the final rinse, use a mug of cold water to help your hair retain the moisture.
Use quality and right products
Be it any time of the year, it is very important to use quality products for your hair. First, decide your hair type and the problem area, and then opt for buying. Check the ingredients properly and do not be lured by fancy packaging and exciting offers. Such products can actually cause damage to your hair. Also, try to stick to the products that you know your hair loves.
By looking at the end number of hair care products, it is obvious to get confused. So, do not hesitate to consult an expert before it is too late.
Trim your hair regularly
Those who have long hair, often avoid cutting their hair. Regular trimming is what most hair experts suggest. This is an easy way to keep split ends at bay, and to keep your hair glossy and shiny. In addition, with trimming you do not have to worry about the length of your hair. Soon your hair will grow back to the desired length.
You must trim your hair in every 6-8 weeks to get rid of dry and damaged hair.
Oil your hair often
Oiling your hair is important to enjoy healthy and shiny hair. During the winter days, your scalp is vulnerable to drying out and the solution to this problem is oiling. The process of oiling will improve blood circulation to the scalp. This in turn will help your scalp and hair roots to get all the necessary nutrients they need to keep your hair shiny and glossy.
Choose from almond oil, olive oil, argan oil and coconut oil and give yourself a nice head massage at least once a week.
Be it summers or winters, take good care of your hair to enjoy healthy hair growth and good shine on your hair.
