While the western countries have already experienced their first frost, in most of the eastern parts of the world, winter is around the corner. It has already started getting cold, and soon it will be the time when you really feel like snuggling into your hats and scarves. You must be prepared to face the chilly winter months, but is your hair also ready for winter and its dryness? Most probably not! It’s not only dry and cold conditions that take toll on your locks. Static and frizz also steal that summerlicious look of your hair.
Walk into any store and you will be bombarded with hair care products specially designed for dry hair. Don’t let such products, claims or scams fool you! Dry hair is not a hair type; it is a hair problem mostly triggered by dry and chilled environmental conditions. There are several other factors as well that can cause drying up of scalp and hair, excessive shampooing, frequent use of blow dryers and over-styling to name a few.
But nothing can beat the dryness caused by winter season. As soon as the temperatures begin to drop, your thick, luscious locks get charged and begin to fly. This is mainly due to the static caused by lack of humidity coupled with woolen clothes. But by following these simple tips and making a few lifestyle adjustments you can easily counter winter dryness and static and keep your hair at its best regardless of temperature drops.
- Hats and scarves:
The first thing that you need to do is to protect your hair from graveness of weather, be it direct sunlight and scorching heat or dry, chilled breeze. All of them will strip moisture from your locks, leaving them dry and frizzy. Static caused by woolen hats and scarves further worsen the condition. This is why trichologists at Dubai Hair Club always recommend their patients to wear silk scarves before wearing cozy woolen caps.
- Don’t over wash:
As stated above, excessive head washing is also a common cause of hair and scalp dryness. If you wash your head daily, remember the shampoo takes away not only the dirt and grime but also the moisture and natural oil of your locks and scalp. The ultimate result is rough, dry and brittle strands. During winters shampoo your hair twice or at most thrice a week. In between washings, you can apply a stay-in conditioner.
- Dry hairs before you go out:
This is a must! Going out with a wet head during chilly winters not only makes you susceptible to cold but also makes your locks lose their natural oils and shine. Ultimately, your, once shiny and luscious, hair becomes brittle and damaged. Wait for a few extra minutes after washing your hair to ensure you’re your hair is completely dry before you head out.
Follow the aforementioned tips and make your hair look at its best during winters.
