Winters provide respite from the scorching summer heat. It's also that time of the year when you pull out those overcoats and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate on breezy afternoons. The end of the year also heralds the festive season with Christmas and New Year around the corner. While winter comes with its share of cozy celebrations, there's one thing that most people dread i.e. dry and frizzy hair. The chill in the air reduces the amount of moisture and natural oils from your scalp and leads to rough and unmanageable hair. These expert hair care tips show you how it's done.
1. Regular Nourishing
We all know the importance of keeping our skin moisturised during winters, so why should hair fall behind? Wash your hair less frequently to ensure the natural oils aren't depleted. Use products specially designed for dry hair. They help nourish your hair to make it smoother and manageable so that it stays hydrated.
2. Pamper Your Hair
You know how relaxed and stress-free you feel after a nice spa session? That's how you need to treat your scalp and hair too. Indulge in regular head massages which can be easily done at home. Choose your shampoo and conditioner according to your hair type - This hair hack can work for everyone! While conditioning, start from the ends, using the conditioner, work your way through the mid-lengths of your hair and evenly distribute the product through your hair. Wrap your hair in a hot towel for around 10 minutes for a quick deep conditioning and relax with some soothing music in the background.
3. Glam It Up
Your hair is one of the biggest contributors to your overall look. So it goes without saying that your hair needs some attention before that special event you have been looking forward to. Once you are done shampooing and conditioning your hair, use BBLUNT's Hot Shot heat protection mist before blowdrying or using any heated tools. Use Hot Shot hold Spray to keep your hair in place and Hot Shot Shine Spray to add a shiny, glossy finish to your winter-dull hair, for that salon-like gloss.
4. Stay Away From Heated Products
We usually recommend limiting the use of heated tools like a straightener, hair curler and flat iron especially during winters, as they tend to cause split ends and increase hair damage.
5. Get Trims Regularly
Lastly, remember to trim or cut your hair regularly, at least once every six to eight weeks as this helps to prevent split ends and maintain the shape and design of your haircut. And finally, make sure you keep yourself well hydrated and eat a healthy, balanced diet.
