Even if you love your hair, it doesn’t always love you back, especially as the weather turns cooler. Dullness, breakage, split ends and static can ruin the best mane.
Here are some tried and tested winter hair care tricks to restore the bounce and silkiness to your crowning glory.
Winter Hair Woe # 1: My scalp is flaky and dry!
Trichologist Jayant Verma says a change in weather can cause your scalp to peel. “Humidity level fall in winter, and this dries out skin including your scalp,” he explains. A simple remedy is switching to an anti-dandruff shampoo like L’Oreal Paris Fall Resist Anti-Dandruff Shampoo.
If the problem persists, try using an overnight formula like Kaya Anti Dandruff Lotion
. Most anti-dandruff formulas contain anti-bacterial agents, zinc and sulphur, that remove flaky build-up from follicles. It’s also a good idea to take an omega supplement like HealthAid Flaxseed Oil 1000mg – Omega 3,6,9
to put back moisture in your skin.
Winter Hair Woe # 2: My hair goes flat and limp!
Hair stylist Ahlan Wong says the quickest way to add back volume is with a root-boosting spray like Sebastian Professional Volupt Spray For Extra Body And Volume
. “Divide the top layer of damp hair into four sections. Lift each section up toward the ceiling and spritz the roots.” Then let the spray work its magic. Now blow dry roots while lifting sections with a big round brush. Smooth down a bit and voila, you have big, glorious hair!
Winter Hair Woe # 3: Static makes my hair stand on end!
Winter Hair Woes # 4: I’m losing sleep over split ends!
Besides trimming off those offending split tips there’s little you can do to mend your hair. But if your strands have been looking particularly parched, pop open a Vitamin E capsule like ExxelUSA Omexxel E400 Dha, Epa, Omega 3
and drizzle on ends. You can also use it to massage your scalp. Glossy, healthy hair in a jiffy!
