Winter is often unkind to our hair. The dry air in the atmosphere sucks the moisture out of the strands, leaving your hair dull and dehydrated. Naturally, hair that lacks moisture is prone to breakage. So, don’t be surprised if you experience increased hair loss every time you wash or brush your hair during winter. Thankfully, there are solutions (including effective home remedies) to treat hair fall during winter. Below, everything you need to know.

1. Avoid Hot Showers

Washing your hair with scalding hot water can actually damage to your hair. Reserve your steamy showers for days when you don’t have to wash your hair.

3. Choose Your Products Wisely

Since the winter air is incredibly drying, we recommend switching your regular shampoo and conditioner for sulphate-free alternatives. Using a more moisturising shampoo and conditioner during winter is a reliable hair loss treatment.
