Like our skin, our hair also needs extra care in this winter season. Dryness, dullness, dandruff, frizziness, hair thinning, split ends and other many more hair problems can create unacceptable bad hair days. So, the time is here to winterize our hair routine. I like to keep my hair care simple yet effective.
As a mom of two, hovering among many daily activities, I really struggle to follow a perfect winter hair care. Still, I try to protect my hair from the dryness. I like to oil my hair twice a week, mostly with organic coconut oil or almond oil and I like to use very little oil just enough to moisture my scalp and hair. Because the more oil I use, the more shampoo I would be needed to wash away the oil. To prevent hair falling and hair thinning I use a mixture of oils (Castor oil, Coconut oil, and Almond Oil) and use it at least once a week. Tea tree oil and Aloe vera gel are also beneficial for hair fall.
And in the winter, it is best to use as little chemical as possible. Then, after the shampoo, I like to use a leave-in conditioner or Moroccan oil. Also, because of using hair color, I always use Sulphate and Paraben free shampoo.
Shea butter or coconut based shampoo and oil-based conditioners are always good for dryness.
Thick hair needs deep conditioning, once a week, hair mask is just fine and also I keep the conditioner away from my roots, again the less is good. For thin hair, the regular hair conditioner is enough, or the heavy conditioner can make the thin hair flat.
I also reduce my blow dry time and rely upon the good old towel drying technique. I always use heat protectant product before using any hot tools for hair, like the dryer, straightener or curling wand. And after the hair styling, I use this amazing hair styling product which helps me with the frizziness.
And for dandruff, I like to use a homemade hair pack, made with plain yogurt, lime juice, and honey.
Go natural and keep it moisturized- that’s my basic winter hair care mantra.
STAY WARM AND FEEL BEAUTIFUL
