WINTER HAIR CARE
PKMH Hair Care Tips
Yes it’s hot chocolate weather, but that's not all the winter season is about: no we don’t want to be the party poopers but we all know the dry weather wreaks havoc on your skin and hair!
For many people, winter is a feared season since it dries out their hair and scalp, resulting in frizzy hair, dry scalp, or simply exacerbating the condition of those who already have hair problems.
But don't let the chilly air get the best of you; even the cosiest of jackets and blankets will fall short, but these winter hair care recommendations will come in handy in the winter.
Let's get started:
1. Regular Oiling
Regular oiling helps in boosting the blood supply in your hair roots, nourishes your scalp and massaging your hair and scalp with natural oils on a regular basis say for twice a week in these frigid cold months can totally narrate your hair roots and strengthen them. There are plenty of good options available when it comes to oiling like coconut, jaborandi, argan brahami, almond, sesame or olive oils. Doctors recommend leaving oil on your hair overnight and shampooing it the next morning.
2. Alter Your Hair Wash Routine
There's no denying that your hair, especially during the dry winter months, requires the natural oils created by the scalp. Excessive shampooing can take these protective oils, as well as the moisture they give, from your hair. So, restrict your hair washing to once or twice a week and use a light shampoo that is appropriate for your hair and scalp.
3. Dry Those Locks
Drying your hair in the cold must feel like a monumental chore. But, guess what? Stepping out or sleeping with wet hair might make your life much more difficult because it can cause severe tangling and breaking.
Leaving your hair wet in this season for too long can make your hair turn cold which will result in hair shaft stretches making it more prone to damage. It is also advised to not press your hair forcefully and vigorously with a towel to dry it as this can cause more damage to your hair and instead it is recommended to air/fan dry your hair before leaving the house.
4. Conditioning Is A Must
Conditioning is a must when it comes to winters. No matter how busy a person you are, there are always five more minutes to condition your hair as it moisturizes and protects the exterior layer of your hair making it smooth and lustrous and helps to eliminate frizziness and breakage. Go for conditioners with cetyl alcohol as it is derived from coconut and there is no other best moisturizing agent other than coconut. It will moisturise your hair making it healthy.
5. Minimal Styling
Ladies, this is a no-brainer. Heat damage, split ends, and breakage are all guaranteed results when you use heat on your hair. Consider how this damage can multiply tenfold when your hair is already at its most vulnerable in the cold. So, try to use iron rods and hair straighteners as little as possible, and always use a heat-protection serum before doing so.
6. Comb Gently
Hair that has been exposed to the elements has a proclivity for tangling. So, starting in the centre of your hair length and slowly working downwards, comb your hair with a wide-tooth comb to reduce the tension on your scalp and minimise breakage.
7. Reduce Static
Because of the increased friction caused by the absence of moisture in the air during the winter, your hair might get electrically charged. This can result in even more damage and breakage. As a result, a leave-on conditioner or a hair mousse can greatly assist you in preventing hair static. Aside from that, cleaning your hair with a soft tissue or fabric and sleeping on a silk pillowcase rather than a cotton one can assist you deal with this problem.
8. No More Hot Showers
In the frigid weather, a hot water shower is always appealing. Hot water, on the other hand, can strip your hair of its natural oils and moisture, leaving it dry. It may also cause flakiness and dryness on the scalp. To assist seal the hair cuticles, wash your hair with lukewarm water and then blast it with cold water at the ends.
9. Get Trims Regularly
Hair breakage and split ends are caused by the dry and chilly winter air. Friction from hats and scarves adds to your hair's stress. Trim your hair every four to eight weeks to avoid this. In the winter, this keeps your hair appearing fresh. To get rid of dry, split ends, cut half an inch off the bottom of your hair.
10. Maintain A Healthy Diet
A lack of water in the winter can lead to dehydration, which can affect your hair and make it drier. As a result, stay hydrated as much as possible during the cold. Also, consume a well-balanced diet to avoid vitamin and nutrient deficiencies that weaken your hair.
Winter is that time of year when your hair loses a lot of moisture. We hope that by following all the above hair care #pkmhrecommendations, you will be able to flaunt soft, lustrous, and healthy hair this winter.
