Winters are just around the corner, which means we will experience drastic changes in more than just our clothes as the air gets colder. Our skin and hair also go through a change as the air outside gets crisp, which is why we need to know the tips and tricks to keep them as healthy as possible.
Talking specifically about hair, here are some things you should STOP doing during winters, or otherwise, you will end up with damaged hair by the end of this season.
Washing your hair with hot, steaming water
Well, we all know that as the temperature drops, nothing is more tempting than a hot water bath. But hot water showers are also your worst enemies during this season. Not only does the water dehydrate your skin, but it can also dry up your scalp, alongwith your hair. Your hair will become extremely frizzy, and the moisture from your hair will be wiped out if you wash your hair with hot water.
It might be tough, but try washing your hair separately with lukewarm water and then cold water. Otherwise, you will regret it when the season ends.
Washing your hair every other day
Many people like taking a proper body shower every day. Well, DON’T DO IT. You can shower without washing your hair every single day.
A gap of at least 2-3 days before your next wash is significant for your hair. Excessive washing tends to wipe out your hair/scalp’s natural oils, making your hair dry and rough.
Not taking conditioning seriously
Many have this concept that conditioning can damage the hair and is not as important. Well, your hair needs conditioning more than anything else during the chilled weather.
Winters tend to call for extra hydration and moisture since the hair and skin naturally get very dry due to weather and temperature. Don’t take oiling and conditioning lightly during this season.
Selecting the hats and beanies made out of materials that are not hair friendly
This is another cause of excessive hair breakage. Go for silk, tightly knit fabrics, or cashmere as they are safe for your hair and provide you with the warmth you need.
