Written by Tashika TyagiDec 13, 2021

Are you noticing your hair getting frizzy or dry and hair falling on your comb and pillowcases? Well, it’s the season turn that’s taking a toll on your tresses. Just as your skin feels dry and flaky as the season changes, your hair goes through some changes too. How do you overcome this? Well, by simply taking care of your mane. To help you with that, we have picked out five useful and effective hair care tips that will help your mane and keep it healthy and happy.

01. Switch to an anti-dandruff shampoo

The biggest favour you can do to your hair with season changing is switching to an anti-dandruff shampoo. The cold weather saps moisture from the hair, leaving it dry, itchy and increasing the chances of dandruff. But most anti-dandruff shampoos end up drying your tresses. That’s why we recommend going for the Dove Dandruff Care Shampoo. This one contains ZPTO, a clinically proven anti dandruff agent that effectively fights Malasezzia, dandruff causing fungus. Plus, it has micro moisture serum which keeps the hair smooth and soft. A hair saviour through and through.

02. Use a damage repairing hair mask

The dry winter hair wreaks havoc on your tresses and leaves them more prone to breakage. But fret not, you can easily salvage your tresses by treating them with a damage repairing hair mask like the Dove Intense Damage Repair Hair Mask. Infused with keratin repair actives, this hair mask immediately repairs signs of damage while moisturising the strands. Apply from the mid-length to tips and leave on for 3-5 minutes. Replace with your regular conditioner once a week and watch the magic unfold.

03. Rinse your hair with lukewarm water

Using hot water to rinse your hair can strip the scalp of its natural oil and make it dry, leaving your hair looking dry, dull and brittle. We suggest using cold or lukewarm water to wash your hair. This helps seal your cuticles and traps the moisture in, leaving your hair smooth and shiny.

04. Limit the use of heat styling tools

Your hair is more vulnerable to damage during the winter, which is why you should minimise your use of hot styling tools during this time. However, when you do use your straighteners or dryers, make sure you apply a heat protectant spray like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray prior. It shields your hair from up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and leaves your hair soft and shiny.

05. Trim your mane regularly

The weather change can cause your hair to become dry and frizzy and cause split ends as well. The best way to avoid this is by getting your ends regularly trimmed at the salon. This will remove the unhealthy-looking split ends and improve the overall appearance of your tresses.
