With the arrival of the winter season comes the fear of oily scalp and dry ends. The drop in temperature and cold blows of wind leeches out the moisture and natural oils of our hair, making them dehydrated, dry and visibly dull. In the winter season, maintaining the bounce in your hair and getting rid of the oily scalp can be a real challenge.
Here are a few tips and tricks to follow this winter season
It is advised to deeply condition the ends of your hair as it helps in retaining the moisture and prevents hair from frizzing as well.
Refrain from using a hair straightener
One should refrain from using hair straightener as it makes your hair greasier than before and tends to take away moisture from the hair, increasing the risk of damage.
Avoid excessive head wash
In winters, our scalp has a tendency to accumulate oil and become more prone to greasiness. It is suggested to reduce the frequency of hair washing as compared to summers since your head takes more than usual to dry making it look oilier than before.
Change your shampoo every once a while
With due course of time, your hair becomes immune to the formula of a shampoo being used regularly. It is advised to change your shampoo every 2-3 months to get desired results.
Dr. Blossom Kochhar, Chairperson of Blossom Kochhar Group of Companies says, “For an oily scalp, it is necessary to keep the hair healthy, detoxified and moisturised. The plant juice of Aloe vera and Reetha deeply cleans and conditions the hair from the roots to the tips. Extracts from Triphala (a natural antioxidant), Shikhakai and Henna repairs the damaged hair strands and revitalises hair growth. Green tea and Tea tree essential oil unclogs hair follicles and maintains the pH levels of the scalp, thereby promoting hair growth and giving it the freedom to flow graciously”.
Ingredients to look for in a shampoo:
* Witch hazel
* Triphala and Shikakai
* Essential Oils of Fennel | Tea Tree | Neroli
