Winter comes with it’s own set of beauty woes. From static hair to dandruff. The easiest way to deal with these is to turn to some natural ingredients and home remedies. Here is a list of things you can do to protect your hair.
A good hot oil massage
Regain the strength and shine of your hair by massaging your scalp with hot oil which penetrates into your scalp in a way shampoo and conditioner never can. This leads to better distribution of nutrients to your hair follicles which nourishes the scalp and helps against winter winds. This nourishment and strengthening of hair follicles leads to faster hair growth as well.
Curd and lemon
Curd and lemon acts as a natural deep conditioner for the hair. This combination helps you to reduce hair fall in the winter season. It cures dryness of the scalp and eliminates dandruff. Put a few drops of lemon in curd and apply it to your hair as a mask. Keep it for 15-20 minutes till it dries and then wash your hair.
Neem and curd
This has been a wisdom for centuries. Neem mixed with curd curbs dandruff, helps to exfoliate, cleanses and nourishes the scalp. Take some neem leaves, make a paste of it and add it to curd. Apply it to your hair, leave it to dry and rinse.
Avoid using a blow dryer
A blow dryer transfers charge to the hair which makes the hair stand up and look dry. Avoid using it as much as you can.
Metal comb or Wooden Comb
Use a metal comb or a natural wooden comb over a plastic comb. A plastic comb is likely to create electricity in the hair. The metal comb when used when the hair is wet is the best. Even if there is any charge created by combing, it will flow back through the comb into your body down to earth. Therefore, there will be no static build up.
Steam opens the follicles of your hair which helps absorb more nutrients. It helps you regain the lost moisture content and strengthens your hair. Giving your hair steam treatment regularly will lead to healthy hair growth, reduced hair fall and also give your hair a shine.
Curd and egg
The yoghurt smoothens the hair follicles and the egg helps retain moisture.Mix an egg and yoghurt together. Apply the mask to your hair, leave it for 30 minutes and then wash it with shampoo.
Apply aloe vera on your hair except the scalp. It is a very good natural product which removes frizziness and calms static hair.
Use these tips to avoid falling prey to dry and static hair. Stay healthy, stay beautiful!
