7 top tips for Winter Wonderful Hair
I love winter but I really hate what it does to my hair. I moisturize myself and know how to keep my skin happy but am totally clueless about my hair… was clueless, rather, as I recently got some fantastic tips about keeping my hair nourished in winter. Just to show you how good and generous I am, I would like to share these tips with you, and believe you me, these have come down from a woman we all know well, an ex-model…psst..no more secrets now…
Tip 1. Did you know that indoor heating is probably more damaging to your hair than the summer sun? Do not expose your hair to more heat than needed. Leave off blow-dryers and curling irons as much as you can. If you absolutely must, do use a conditioner before. Wash your hair with warm to cool water rather than hot.
Tip 2. On the other hand, as most of us might know, it is equally damaging if not more to hairstyle that protects your hair. No matter how much you love to leave your hair loose or just tie a pony tail, it is much better to braid and bun. The wind is pretty bad for hair so it is better to just protect the ends by tucking them in. If you are wearing a bun, cover your ears with a ear warmer and you can even tuck your hair ends in it. Do not keep running your fingers through the hair.
Tip 3. Condition. Help your hair and scalp regain the lost moisture with a deep conditioning treatment once a week during the winter months. You can do it maybe once a month at thesalon and the other weeks do it yourself at home. Warm up some olive oil and rub it well into your scalp before your bath. Use a hair oil after you shampoo your hair. Or you can also use a few drops of the hair oil with your conditioner. Just leave it in for a few minutes before rinsing it off. You can also apply honey to the roots Leave it on for 20 minutes or so and then shampoo and condition.
Tip 4. Do not go out with a wet head. Apart from headache, colds and coughs, your hair might freeze and break. Always, always, always dry your hair well before you move out. Use your blower well to dry every bit of hair.
Tip 5. Static hair is not good. A good humidifier will cut down on static by adding moisture to the air. Use hats with satin lining. You can easily stitch in a satin strip inside your woolen cap or ask a family member to do it. Make sure your pillow covers are not cotton because this will just undo all the damage control you have done. Use satin covers in the winter. You can also spray on a little static guard to make things easier.
Tip 6. Dandruff may be a problem in winter. The most important thing is not to share combs or any other hair accessories with people who have dandruff. Wash your hair with an anti-dandruff shampoo about once a week during winter months. Use some lemon juice with coconut oil and rub into your scalp. Leave it on for a few minutes then wash thoroughly. Washing your hair with apple cider vinegar with a few drops of tea tree oil will work wonders.
Tip 7. Drink plenty of water. Eat lot of fruits. Drink plenty of juice. This is to ensure your body stays well hydrated and gets its proper dose of vitamin c. Vitamin c increases collagen production which in turn will help your hair and scalp. Eat food rich in omega 3 fatty acids such as fish and flax seeds.
Follow these tips and you need not fear winters any more. Your hair will love you too.
