Dry Hair Hacks For The Coming Winter
The good, pleasant days of monsoon will very soon be replaced by the harsh winters. Our hair and dry skin bear the real consequences of winter and we would do anything to help them. The flaking and the breakage that our hair goes through are not only harsh but also stressful. Moreover, the remedial products in the market are not always convenient or reasonable enough to buy. Hence, we are here to rescue you with some hacks!
This might sound like an obvious one, but we don’t mean your regular conditioner. Replace your regular conditioner with mayonnaise. It’s even better if your mayonnaise is not egg-less. You probably already know how good egg is for your hair. Apply mayonnaise on damp hair for about 20 minutes. Use a hair cap to lock it in and wash it off the usual way. The results will be shiny, glossy and advertisement worthy hair!
ASPRIN IN SHAMPOO
This might be taking the chemical composition of your shampoo a level higher, but don’t be afraid, we know it works for sure. Adding a crushed asprin to your shampoo every once in a while, will deep clean your scalp and hair build-up. It will also strengthen the hair, which will in turn lead to a faster growth.
We have a rather popular solution for a rather popular problem. Use baking soda with water to create a paste and apply generous amount like a hair mask. Keep it on for about 15-20 minutes and you wash off with regular shampoo. The results will be instantly visible. Remember as a tip: anything acidic, mostly citric acid will help in clearing off dandruff.
HAIR AND CARE
To solve the real issue of your problems, you cannot be easy with the hair care. For dry hair, it’s most important to keep your styling habits under control. Using too many heat devices and not air drying your hair can be highly harmful. Always use a heat protectant product before styling and keep the use of hair dryer to the minimum. After you wash your hair, it will naturally absorb some of the water. By using hair dryer, you strip your hair off that moisture.
The oldest trick in the book- oiling your hair regularly has the most impactful effect on dry hair. There is no better moisturiser than oil itself. Almond oil is best for extremely dry hair. Another tip for noticing how much oil your hair needs is to see how fast it absorbs the oil. The faster the absorption is, the more nourishment your hair needs.
