Brrr. It’s cold in hair. Come winter, it’s so easy to forget that your hair needs some extra TLC. It’s time to gear up for the shuttle between overheated offices and cold streets. Just like summer, this season comes with its own set of hair casualties. During this transition, here’s a gentle reminder to give your tresses their fair share of pampering.
Here are some winter hair care tips you need in the winter season:
The Winter Trim
Love how mind-blowing your mane seems after a fresh haircut? We’ve all been there. Blame it on the ’Gram if you must, but we bet there’s a haircut you’ve been aching to try but can’t muster up the courage to. Shake up your look with a subtle chop and snip or take the leap with an entire revamp. Trust us, you don’t need no fancy color, this is ’nuff for a fresh start.
Detangling your hair after a shower only to see an army of strands on…the ground, your fingers, and your neck? *heart skips a beat* Maybe, that hair styling addiction and heat treatments are taking a toll on your hair. Take a break. Swap excessive styling with a serum that tames and nourishes those gorgeous tresses. Trust us, you’ll fall in love with your crown all over again.
Take cold (yes cold) showers. This might not be the most relaxing bath time, but it helps to retain the shine of them locks. Instead of a regular towel, try using an old cotton T-shirt to soak up all that moisture from dripping wet strands. You’ll spend far less time drying your hair plus soft cotton is far gentler on just-shampooed hair than towel fibers. Pro tip: Use a silk scarf to keep the ends protected from woollen clothes, since they dry your hair out even more.
Rehab Your Scalp
Temperature level low, frizz level up. We say don’t let your scalp down. Now this might not be the most glamourous topic when it comes to hair, but there isn’t a #GoodHairDay without a healthy scalp, right? Warm your favorite hair oil up, gently massage into hair and cover with a shower cap. Wash after 20 minutes. Champi = Happiness!
Before The Hair Haul
Who said you need a crowded bathroom cabinet to supercharge those locks? Don’t get twisted, we are all for hair care time, but your diet is equally important. Bad food can jeopardise all your effort. Start your day with a healthy bowl of oatmeal with a dash of cinnamon to jog your circulation. Indulge your potato craving with roasted sweet potatoes and walnuts. Your scalp will thank you later. Also, is there anything drinking water doesn’t help with? *cue to reach out for that bottle RN*
Happy Hair Days this Winter.
