While the winter season brings respite from months of hot and humid weather, it also brings with it a range of skin and hair issues. The season is dry, and hence, makes our skin and scalp dry and flaky, too. Resultantly, we tend to suffer from an excessive amount of hair fall during winter.
“Winter and hair fall go hand-in-hand, don’t they? Well, it’s time we break their friendly bond and stop letting our favourite season ruin our most precious hair,” Ayurvedic expert Dr Dixa Bhavsar said, as she shared tips to keep hair fall at bay during winter.

Follow these simple tips to save yourself from hair fall this winter season, as suggested by Dr Bhavsar.
Consume amla daily
You can have amla shot in the morning, or just bite into amla. You can also have it in powder form. Chyawanprash and amla juice are other ways you can consume this beneficial food item.
Oil your hair
While a lot of us end up avoiding it, it’s important to oil our hair, the expert said. Your hair needs nourishment just the way your body does. Oil your hair at least once/twice a week.
She suggested using coconut oil, amla oil, bhringraj oil, castor oil, sesame oil or a mixture of all of these.
Jaggery is best consumed in the winter season. It helps with digestion issues, low haemoglobin, sweet cravings and keeps you warm. Replace sugar with jaggery. Have a piece of jaggery after meals or just make healthy energy balls using it.
Consume sesame energy balls
Sesame seeds are best for hair fall, especially when consumed during the winter months.
Watch your diet
Since it is winter season and your digestion is at its peak, it doesn’t mean that you can binge on all junk and fried foods whenever you feel hungry. Try to have warm, fresh and home-cooked meals. Don’t forget to exercise.
It is the best moisturiser for your gut and skin in this dry weather.
Massaging foot during bedtime helps with sound sleep and nourishes your body and mind.
Putting ghee drops in nostrils at night is best for everything — from hair fall and grey hair to stress and insomnia.
