Tis’ the season to be merry but can’t say the same about the hair. Hair loss, dandruff, split ends and thinning of hair becomes more when the weather changes from monsoon to winter. On top of that, our stressful lifestyle and increasing pollution worsens the existing problem of hair fall. But, don’t panic! If you religiously follow a hair care routine, you will go a long way in protecting that magnificent mane. Read on to know how you can deal with excessive hair fall during the winter season.

Keep them covered

The cold air can dry your hair out and make it prone to breakage. Make sure you’re wearing a scarf or hat made of silk or satin instead of those made of cotton or wool because they can cause breakage as well. Always cover your hair whenever you step out.

Avoid hot baths

A hot shower can be a boon in the cold weather but for your hair, it can be a nightmare. Hot water washes the natural oils in the scalp, making your hair follicles brittle. This can lead to excessive hair fall and breakage. Experts recommend washing your hair with cold or lukewarm water. Wash your hair once in three days or two in case of dandruff.

Oiling works

Combat the moisture-robbing dry winter air with oils. Oiling regularly can help restore moisture in your hair. Oils such as coconut and olive provide deep conditioning, add shine and softness to the hair. Essential oils like lemongrass, lavender, and peppermint are great for hair treatment too. Avoid oiling the scalp if you have dandruff. Apply oil halfway from your roots in this scenario.

Dry your hair

Do not venture outdoors with wet hair. The cold winds can freeze your hair causing it to break. Make sure you air-dry your hair properly before stepping out. Avoid blow-drying as it sucks the moisture from your hair thereby increasing the chances of breakage.
