Winter hair care regime and products for those long locks


The dry and chilly air during winters takes a toll on your skin, health and hair, and this why you need to pay extra attention to your locks. The protection of your skin and hair is in your hands and a wise investment can make it work. Dandruff is a common problem which occurs due to dry scalp and this is why you cannot afford to use any harsh products. To avoid such problems, wash your hair twice a week with luke-warm water. Washing hair very frequently can leave your hair dry and fizzy. Rinsing off with hot water will make you lose the luster and shine. Here are a few tips to avoid such problems during fall winter and make haircare easy for you.



Oiling the scalp and hair from tip to toe becomes very important to prevent the aggravated scalp irritation. This further leads to hair fall, split ends and hair damage. The choice of oil also depends on your hair type and scalp type. For some people, coconut oil solves the problem, for some olive oil and some people need deep conditioning with castor oil. If you do not want to invest too much money on hair oils, it’s better to opt for coconut or mustard oil. A combination of olive oil and castor oil can not only prevent dandruff but can stimulate hair regrowth also. The bald spots on your scalp can be easily treated with this combination oil. Oiling can be done twice a week before going to bed or at least 2 hours before washing your hair.

The gel based shampoos will only make your scalp drier and itchier during fall/winter. For proper hair care, you should switch from your fragrant shampoos to a cream and milk-based shampoos. Often the shampoos available in the market are harsh and do not work as they promise in the advertisement. However, my experience with Dove shampoos is a bit different. It is not the best shampoo, but in an affordable price band, it’s not bad either. It is milk and cream based which lowers down the probability having dry hair.

There are numerous people who fail to understand how vital conditioning is post shampooing. For maintaining the health of your hair, it is necessary that you supply them with enough moisture and a layer of protection from the environmental damage these days. Conditioners do not work on the scalp, instead, they work on the length and damaged portions of your hair. You should pay more attention to the rough ends of your hair while applying conditioner. Leave it for a few minutes and rinse with lukewarm water of cold water. Cold water will seal the moisture in your hair, preventing any further damage.

Conditioners are milder than the shampoos and therefore, leave your hair soft and smooth. If you use the same conditioner as your shampoo then you may get better results. Loreal conditioners are more expensive than the other conditioners but their effect is much intense. They tend to condition the hair deeply.

Hair serums act as a protective barrier between your hair and external factors. Applying hair serum after every wash will help manage your frizzy hair by detangling them. The sweaters, hoodies, coats will even make your hair static and you will end up finding them stuck to your woolens.

Hair serums are also widely available in the market but are not as common as shampoos and conditioners. You may find a variety of them but it’s not easy to pick up the right one for your hair type. If your hair is too oily then you may go for a lesser price range also. However, if your hair is dry and chemically treated then you may want to invest a little more on these.
