No matter how much we enjoy the cold weather, the cold air and low humidity levels can wreak havoc on our skin and hair. While you invest in creamy moisturisers, lip balms and hand creams to tackle skin dryness, your hair care routine remains pretty much the same during winter. This results in dry, coarse and lifeless hair.

Unlike skin, hair demands very little attention. Incorporating a small change in your hair care routine can keep dry and rough hair at bay. We’ve found this easy shampoo hack that requires the most basic ingredient and will make sure you have a good hair day every day. Excited to know what is it? Scroll down to find out…

easy shampoo hack

How to:

Step 01: In a small bowl, add 2-3 tablespoon of shampoo depending on your hair length and add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to it. Mix the two ingredients well.

Step 02: Wet your scalp and hair in the shower and apply this mixture on your scalp and hair. Massage well.

Step 03: Lather up the shampoo as you normally would and wash off with lukewarm water. The coconut oil forms a protective barrier and seals moisture in your hair to prevent frizz. Follow this every time you wash your hair for healthy, nourished tresses.

Those with excessively dry hair are advised to follow this up with a conditioner. Apply your regular conditioner and leave on for 2-3 minutes before washing off with normal/cold water. Using hot water on your hair strips off the moisture and leads to dandruff — so, avoid.

Alternatively, you can use a shampoo that is infused with the goodness of coconut to tackle dryness in winter. The Love Beauty & Planet Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower Aroma Volume and Bounty Shampoo is formulated with organic coconut water that moisturises your strands and makes your hair strong and voluminous.
