Top Winter Haircare Tips Our Editors Swear By: 2024 Edition

Ah, winter, the season of cosy sweaters, hot cocoa and hair care mysteries! While the chilly weather tends to give us a frosty reception, don't let your locks join the winter woes. Instead, let's explore some hot hair care tips to ensure your hair stays as vibrant and fabulous as winter wonderland. It's time to combat the cold with a dash of winter hair care wisdom to keep those tresses shining through the cold! 

Need for Change in Hair Care in Winter 

But why do we need to change how we take care of our hair in the winter? Well, the dry and cold weather can have some pretty harsh effects on our locks. The cold weather tends to reduce humidity levels, leading to dryness. This lack of moisture can make your hair more brittle, and prone to breakage and frizz. Additionally, frequent changes between indoor heating and outdoor cold can stress your hair, leading to weaker strands. Even wearing caps or scarves to keep warm can cause friction and static, resulting in hair damage and flattening.

1. Massaging to Combat Dryness

FAQs on Top Winter Hair Care Tips

Hair oil massages are a blessing in winter as it easily combats dryness. Along with moisturising your strands, it also improves blood circulation which makes sure that all the nutrients and oxygen reach the hair follicles. This leads to new hair and stimulates dormant follicles for thicker growth. So add hair massage to your hair care routine in winter and say hello to a soft, strong and thick mane. 

The hair care oil you use for hair massage also makes a difference. We love the Indulekha Svetakutaja Hair Oil, an ayurvedic hair oil, perfect for all hair types as it is free of chemicals like artificial fragrances or colours. Instead, clinically proven to bring about results, it features a potent blend of amla, bringharaj, coconut oil and the star ingredient, svetakutaja. Its antifungal and antibacterial properties effectively combat dandruff and scalp infections. Plus, it has an inbuilt comb with which you can apply evenly and massage for a mess-free experience.

Another way you can keep your hair happy is by turning to hair masks. They are super creamy and moisturising and just three minutes on your locks can give them the nourishment they need.  

Hair Masks For Your Hair Types: 

Hair masks can do all kinds of magic on your hair but what is even better that there are targeted treatments for different hair types and concerns. 

Damaged Hair - If your hair is dull and damaged, it needs something with intense nourishment. With fancy technology that uses 8% bio-protein fusion, Dove 10 in 1 Deep Repair Treatment Hair Mask works from within to restore your hair’s natural protein. 

Dandruff – Despite the cold, if you have an oily scalp or dandruff, look for a purifying scalp scrub. With the help of tea tree oil and walnut shell powder, the paraben-free Love Beauty & Planet Tea Tree Oil & Peppermint Scalp Scrub gently exfoliates and eliminates build-up. 

Sensitive and Brittle Hair - If you like natural remedies, free of sulphates, parabens, artificial fragrance and all that jazz, we’ve got you. Indulekha Bringha Lepam uses herbs and essential oil to nourish and strengthen your hair. 


3. Limit Washing

One of the hair care tips is to avoid over-washing your hair as it can strip away natural oils, leading to further dryness. Another one of the hair care tips is to keep your hair hydrated in winter. So, when you do wash your hair, switch to a more hydrating shampoo and conditioner to combat dryness.  

TRESemmé Moisture Boost Shampoo and Conditioner With Hyaluronic Acid is a duo that gently cleanses and moisturises dry, lacklustre hair using aloe vera and hyaluronic acid. It is abundant in antioxidants that lock in moisture, nourishing and hydrating hair strands. The conditioner also doubles up as a detangler, leaving hair smooth and lustrous all with the help of aloe vera. It also protects your hair from side effects that usually follow chemical products as this combo is free from sulphates, parabens, dyes and mineral oil. 


4. Don’t Skip After Care

Your hair care routine in winter should be all around keeping your hair hydrated so that it doesn’t get super dry and frizzy. That means including an after care step post hair wash. 

If you are not sure where to start, pick out a hair serum. It is meant to smoothen your hair by reducing frizz and provide an extra boost of hydration. 

Frizzy Hair - Love Beauty & Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Hair Serum is an all-vegan serum that doubles up as a heat protectant and uses authentic Moroccan argan oil which nourishes hair while controlling frizz. It also helps reduce the breaking of hair and adds a salon-like shine. 

Shapeless Curls – For curly hair girlies, easily get back defined and moisturised curls with Dove Beautiful Curls Defining Gel. And it does it all with a trifecta of moisturising ingredients like glycerine, coconut oil and aloe vera.

Q1. Is coconut oil good for oily hair? 

Coconut oil is known for its moisturising properties, but for oily hair, it might not be the best choice. It's a heavier oil and can weigh down fine or oily hair, making it look greasy. Instead, opt for lighter oils like jojoba or argan oil, or use coconut oil sparingly, focusing mainly on the ends of your hair. 

Q2. Why does my hair fall flat in winter? 

It could be due to a combination of factors such as lack of moisture, static and covering your head that flatten your hair. The dryness in the air might also make your scalp produce more oil, making your hair look limp.  

Q3. What foods to eat for hair in winter? 

Consider eating foods rich in vitamins A, C, E, biotin and omega-3 fatty acids. These can be found in leafy greens like spinach, berries, avocados, nuts, fish and eggs.
