Festive is about to knock on our doors but hey, watch out for the dry, cold winds, which can damage your hair. When dry air and freezing weather come together, your hair gets dry, fine, and brittle. So, it's important to keep your hair moist and protect those valuable strands.
Here are some tips to protect your hair and keep them nourished during this festive season:
Keep your scalp moist
When it's cold and dry outside and you turn on the heat inside your home, your hair loses moisture and your scalp becomes dry and itchy. This can cause problems like dandruff, itchy scalp, flaky hair, and hair loss. A quick solution is a hot oil massage, which not only brings more blood to the scalp but also nourishes and grows your hair.
Cover your hair
Wearing a beanie will shield your hair from the wind and keep it from drying out. Rather than wearing a hat, a silk scarf can be used to tame your hair and keep it from becoming frizzy. Taking extra precautions to maintain the health of your hair and scalp during the festival season will ensure that your hair remains shiny and healthy throughout the season.
Apply a hair mask once a week
Applying a hair mask is a good way to give your hair some much-needed care and nourishment. A mask treatment can revitalise your hair's natural lustre and suppleness. Hair masks are easy to make at home with common ingredients like egg, curd, and honey. Each of these products contributes to healthier, shiny hair by locking in moisture and strengthening the strands.
Minimise applying heat to your hair
During the festival, your hair may be more prone to damage from heating styling tools. If you can, let your hair dry naturally. But if you must use a dryer, turn down the heat. A longer process time at a lower temperature will result in less hair damage.
Fewer washes equal healthier hair
If you wash your hair too often, the natural oils will be stripped out, and your hair will become dry and irritated. To retain your hair's natural moisture balance, wash it no more than twice a week and always prefer a shampoo free of harmful chemicals.
