Is your hair ready to face the harsh winter cold? Well, fret not as we give you all the hair care tips so that you can maintain your beautiful locks throughout the season.

Ditch Bad Habits

Sometimes we don’t realise but there are certain practices that damage hair very badly. Combing the hair when it’s damp, making a tight bun, rubbing hair with a towel, washing the hair too often or just using the hairdryer on a high heat setting. Also, just drink hot water but don’t wash your hair with it. No matter how cold the weather, always use cold to lukewarm water to wash your delicate locks. These practices damage your hair all throughout the year but cause greater damage during the winter season.

Condition With Care

If the damage has been done, then you can try homemade conditioners for soft hair such as coconut oil with honey, banana+honey+egg mask, curd+egg mask, coconut milk mask, egg+olive oil mask etc. While an Olive Oil massage works wonders for your hair, you can also opt for Castor Oil conditioning to lock in the moisture that the winter winds take away. In fact, there are many benefits of castor oil not just for hair but also for your skin due to its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
