Beat Winter Bad Hair Days With These 5 Tips

Winter spells BHDs (Bad Hair Days). Wondering how to still keep those gorgeous locks looking bouncy and shiny? It’s not as difficult as you think.

Lustrous and shiny hair not only make heads turn, they’re also a sign of good health.  While good nutrition plays a big role in making hair look healthy, some great products and a few minutes of your time are enough to do the trick.

5 Tips To Avoid Bad Hair Days During Winters

1. Diet: Fruits, vegetables, lean meats, nuts…you’ve heard it before and you’ll hear it now.  These are must-haves.  Seasonal foods help in adding trace minerals to the diet as well.  And just as we keep reminding our kids, drink a lot of water too.  Hydration is very important, especially during the cold weather.  Eating foods like avocados, sardines and fish also bring much needed Omega-3 fatty acid, which is essential for good hair growth. 

2. Hot Oil Hair Massages: Can we ever have enough of these!  Use oils like coconut, olive or almond (or a combination of all three).  Massaging increases blood flow to the follicles and best of all, helps you relax.  You’ll find a host of good products in the market for different hair types so check with your hair dresser for one that suits your hair best.  Try them and you’ll be hooked for life! 

If you’re not a big fan of hot oil massages, deep conditioning treatments work just as well to lock moisture into the scalp and hair.  Hair masks can be made with everyday ingredients available in the kitchen like eggs, yogurt, lemon and oil. 

3. Shampooing: Professional hairdressers always recommend cutting back on shampooing during winters as it strips the hair of its natural oils.  A good oil massage and shampooing followed by a good conditioner will keep hair looking great without damaging it. 

4. Covering your hair: Up your style quotient.  Wear  a scarf before donning your hat or cap on those really cold days.  Not only is this a great way to stay warm, it also keeps the static out of your hair.  So no more crinkly sounds when you run a comb through it.

5. Flat beer: Beer without the fizz helps keep the frizz out of your hair.  So while you misbehave, your hair doesn’t.  Plus, you get the added advantage of shine and bounce. 

Things to Keep In Mind:

During really cold weather, it’s tempting to take really steaming hot showers.  This is not such a great idea as it strips the skin and scalp of moisture.  Warm showers are a better winter hair care alternative.  Washing hair before going to bed will help with moisture retention as well as cutting down on the need to use hair dryers.

Humidifiers are a wonderful addition to a home and can be used as a part of winter hair care regimens. The air in closed spaces tends to become very dry and humidifiers help hair and skin from drying out.  These sturdy little appliances are available in a variety of sizes and budgets.

Most of us are aware of our skin and hair types and finding good products that work is essential. It’s advisable to spend on good quality products as these help your hair look better.  There are also home based alternatives like ghee that will help in getting the desired shine.
