#HealthBytes: How to manage frizzy hair in winters
Do winters become a nightmare for your hair? We understand your pain. The cold weather, dry winds, and lower humidity levels make your hair dry, frizzy, and downright unmanageable. This makes heading out all the more difficult. But don't worry, we have got you covered. Here are simple tips and home remedies to help you manage dry and frizzy winter hair.
During winters, choose lukewarm water for washing your hair. Hot water gets a bad rep as it dries out the hair, by taking away the natural oils from the scalp. And cold water is not advisable for the chilly, winter day. Contrarily, moderately warm water will help close the cuticles of your hair strands, thus sealing-in moisture, and preventing dirt to enter.
If you rely too much on your hair dryer for styling, well, looks like you need to stop. Excessive heat exposure from hair dryers will deplete the moisture from your hair cuticles, and result in dull and frizzy hair. So, get rid of those heat-guns, and let your hair dry out naturally, at least during the winter season.
The age-old advice to regularly give natural oil nourishment to your scalp is still as relevant. Regular oiling is your one-stop solution for a host of hair health issues, from frizzy hair to split ends, dry scalp to dandruff. Natural oils will help nourish your hair, supply ample hydration, and improve overall quality of your hair. Some of the best picks are coconut oil, almond oil, tea tree oil, and avocado oil.
You can also use natural, homemade hair packs to take care of frizzy and dry hair in winters. Some of the best treatments are coconut milk hair pack, eggs and yogurt hair pack, banana and avocado hair pack, and egg yolk and honey pack.
