Flirty, Fabulous Hair in Winter but How

Hey Lovelies…

Caught up in so many ideas to get healthy, shiny hair this winter but don’t know from where to start???? Then look no further because I am here to rescue. Just follow these simple steps every day and see the difference in no time.

Eat Healthy

Eating healthy means healthy hair. Food enriched with vitamins, protein and omega-3 fatty acids are the keys to healthy, shiny and stronger hair. Consumption of sea food once a week, a handful of mixed nuts and green vegetables can [provide all the essential nutrients for your hair. Like vitamin E is different nuts helps to protect hair cells from DNA damage. Omega-3 fatty acid keeps scalp and hair strands hydrated.

Don’t over wash

We all want clean, flirty and fabulous hair everyday but washing hair everyday can strip natural oil, leaving hair dry and making strands brittle. A gap between washes will actually help in distributing hair oil evenly. For oily hair, it is better to shampoo on alternate days and for dry and coarse hair after two or three days.  Because dry hair needs more care. After washing a coat of few drops of any, not so oily, oil on hair will keep strands nourish and will protect from environmental elements.

Say no to heat and over styling

Blow dry, colouring, flat ironing the list can go on; all these are disaster for your hair strands. Try to eliminate heat styling as much as possible. Let your hair dry naturally. Do not style your hair very tight. It can put a lot of stress on hair and can stretch to extent where breakage is easy. Always protect your hair with hat or scarf when going out in the sun to protect you hair from UV rays. Use leave-in conditioner when heading to the pool or beach.

Nourish your hair

Just like face skin, your scalp also needs good deep conditioning. This can be home-made or can be purchased from market. Once in a week a good massage on scalp with any hair oil will stimulate blood flow towards the scalp to combat any dryness or flakiness. Want to know how to condition your hair with oils? Read my previous post.

Trim those ends

I know, I know that cutting hair cannot make them grow faster and longer. But dry end are more prone to become split ends. To avoid hair from splitting, it is nice to cut those brittle ends off. Don’t do it every week or month if you don’t need to. One another NO NO for hair is that if you really want to have strong hair then never sleep with loose hair to eliminate the hair and pillow friction.

I hope you enjoy these tips. Try them and you will find a significant difference in the health of your hair.
