With winter almost here, it’s time for some serious consideration on how you want to care for your hair. Winter comes with a series of new problems for your hair and taking care of it is of extreme importance.

While it would be wonderful to just sit back, sip on that cocoa and do nothing about those hair concerns, not taking the right measures to save your hair will leave you looking like a wild bush during the cold months!

Here are some hair concerns you will face and how you can treat them this winter...

Flaky scalp and dandruff
 

Flaky scalp and dandruff

Your scalp becomes drier by the minute during winter and that can lead to a flaky scalp. Thanks to the lack of moisture in the air, your flaky scalp can lead to dandruff and scalp irritation that eventually leads to hair loss. Dandruff however can be handled and managed with the right care. Take a couple of spoons of olive or coconut oil. Heat this for a couple of seconds and mix it with a teaspoon of lemon juice. Massage it on your scalp and leave it on for 20-30 minutes. Rinse your hair with shampoo and conditioner.

We suggest you go for the Dove Dandruff Care Shampoo & Conditioner from the nutritive range which is a clinically proven anti-dandruff treatment. It visibly reduces flakes from the first wash so you don’t have to give up on your favourite black top.

Dry, frizz hair

Frizz can be annoying and frequent during winter. To get rid of that frizz all you need do is use a vented hair brush that has the combination of plastic and boar bristles. Wash your hair with lukewarm water not hot water. Hot water can take away the natural oil that protects and nourishes your hair.  

Also make sure you use hair products that keep your hair well moisturised and reduce hair damage. Dove’s Dryness Care Shampoo & Conditionerfrom the nutritive range we think is perfect for frizzy hair.

Dull and lifeless hair

The lack of moisture can make your scalp dry and your hair look frizzy, it also has the tendency to make your hair look dull and lifeless. Brush your hair with a wide-toothed wooden comb to remove all the tangles and then apply some honey to the length of your hair from the roots to tips. Cover your hair with a towel and leave it on for 30 minutes. After this wash it off with lukewarm water.

Also make sure you use nourishing hair products like the Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo & Conditioner as it enriches your tresses with nutri-oils that nourish hair and give you weightless shine every day. It treats dry and frizzy hair, leaving you with hair that is smooth and soft to touch.

Damaged hair

Massaging your scalp with a nourishing oil would help the oil penetrate deep in the roots of your hair and thus prevent hair damage. This will also keep your hair moisturised and improve blood circulation. Massaging also prevents hair fall. So make sure you pick your hair oil wisely!

We suggest relying on the Indulekha Bringha Oil for this purpose. As it is known for its medicinal properties that has the power to hydrate your tresses and reduce hair fall, which is common during winter.

Right drying
 

Right drying

Drying your hair during winter is important. Damp hair and scalp can attract many problems like dandruff, breakage and even split ends especially during winter. Make sure you don’t vigorously rub your hair dry with a towel, as rubbing can cause friction resulting in breakage. Squeeze out the excess moisture with a towel, use a heat protectant serum and then use a blow dryer.
