Even though it is only the first days of September, I can feel the chill of winter in the morning. Winter has arrived, even though we still suffer from monsoon-induced hair problems. It’s time to experience hair problems again! Is it possible to be immune from hair problems? Being immune from hair problems is impossible, but you can reduce your vulnerability.
In the winter, the harsh winds can dry out our scalps and remove all the moisture. The scalp and hair become very dry. Hair becomes frizzy and becomes coarse. The cuticles also become more brutal, making it difficult to manage. The scalp becomes flaky and dry, and dandruff makes it worse! You may remember that feeling when you removed your sweater in the winter and felt the static electricity on your hair. The lack of moisture is the reason for this. Remember when the hair under your jackets or sweaters becomes tangled. Untangling hair is a word of war. What is the result? The comb or brush is covered in broken hair strands. This is due to a lack of moisture on our scalp and hair. Here are some easy and effective homemade hair packs to keep your hair strong and healthy during winter.

Dos and Don’ts of Hair in Winter
Will the hair packs above be enough to get you through the winter? It would help if you did more than use hair packs to keep your hair healthy during the winter.
- Trim your hair regularly at intervals of about one and a half months. Trimming helps remove dry and unhealthy hair, which can lead to split ends. It will make your hair more manageable, and you will have less to struggle with.
- Use warm water to wash your hair instead of hot.
- Deep Conditioning is essential during the winter. Deep Conditioning not only softens your hair but also adds moisture to it. Go outside and get a conditioner for your hair.
- Cover your hair with a silk hat or scarf to prevent damage from the wind. Your hair will be just as static as before.
- Use oil to moisturize your hair and keep it flake-free.
- Water is essential for hair and scalp. Avoid unhealthy foods, as they can affect your hair and scalp.
- Avoid washing your head every day. Winter’s harsh cold air causes hair and scalp to lose moisture. Washing your hair frequently will remove the water that remains.
- Avoid going out with wet hair. While it is not something we would all want to do, you should ensure your hair is dehydrated before leaving the house. The cold air makes wet hair frizzy.
- While a hot water bath can relax in the winter, washing your hair will make a mess. Avoid hot water as it can damage your hair.
- Use hair straighteners and curlers instead of hair treatments. These tools can make hair rough and dry, which is worse during the winter.
- Refrain from brushing or combing your hair too much. If you want to comb your hair, hold it with one hand and then use the comb. You will be able to avoid hair loss by doing this. Apply Serum to get a smooth comb.
