Winter hair care - dos and don'ts

Do not wear woolen clothing on your hair: Use a silk scarf to cover your hair, over this you can use woolen clothing. If you wear woolen clothing directly on your hair, it can damage the hairline.


Cover your hair: When you go out, remember to cover your hair from the cold and harsh winds. This will avoid unnecessary damage to the hair. Do not cover your hair tightly as this might restrict the blood circulation to your scalp.


Do not go out with wet hair: Your hair might develop split ends if exposed to extreme cold conditions. Hence do not step out with wet hair.


Massage oil into your hair: Massage your scalp and hair with olive oil at least twice a week, this will allow your hair to retain its moisture. You will get better results if you heat the oil mildly before you massage it into your scalp.


Do not shampoo too often: Shampooing your hair more than required can make your hair and scalp dry.


Wash your hair with warm or cool water: Using hot water can be bad for the scalp and hair, always use warm or cool water to wash your hair.


Use conditioner: Use a good hair conditioner everyday to condition your hair. Once you apply the conditioner wash your hair with cold water, this will lock moisture in the hair.
