It makes your mane lose it’s shine, volume, texture, and leaves it feeling limp and brittle. Since you can’t change the weather, you can definitely learn how to find a way to adapt to it. We bring you top tips to take care of your hair in the winter!

1. Use Quality Hair Products

When it comes to having healthy hair, we advise that you don’t compromise on quality hair products, based on the money you spend on one. If you end up buying a harmful product, just to be economical, you will be spending way more later on treatments. Stock up on good quality shampoos and conditioners which give you the best results. They might be slightly expensive, but they’re worth it. In addition, if you straighten your hair on a daily basis, make sure you apply a serum or cream so your hair does not get damaged from the heat. If you’re looking for a shampoo that works magic, and smells heavenly, we can assist you with that too!

2. Include Leafy Vegetables & Fruits In Your Diet

Every veggie and fruit available in the market has a lot to offer to your system. Consuming any of mother nature’s edible gifts will give your hair the shine and strength it requires. Every day you should be eating a bowl of fruits or salads. This will have a tremendous impact on your hair and health. If you’re current diet lacks nutrition and vitamins, you can pop a vitamin tablet (Before you gulp that tablet down, make sure your action is approved by your family doctor)

3. Wear a Cap to Protect Your Mane

You don’t want that chilled-moist air disturbing your hair’s growth, now do you? That’s why you need to take precaution, and wearing a hat would be the ideal thing to do. Before you step out, apply a tiny amount of anti-frizz serum by running your fingers through your hair to keep your hair safe from the cold and wear a cap over it.

4. Cut Down On Washing Your Hair

Don’t wash your hair daily, wash it just twice or thrice a week. This action will prevent your hair from drying out too much. In addition, make sure you dry your hair before leaving the house (Especially during the winter) Because if you don’t, you won’t only catch a cold, but the moisture in the air will cause your mane damage by making it dry and brittle.

5. Go For Regular Hair Trims

During winter, most girls feel that their scalps have become brittle, itchy and flaky. That’s why you should oil your hair often. Almond and argan oils are good options.
