Lock Your Hair Problems This Winter
If winter is an enemy to your hair then here are some hair solutions that can keep your hair looking healthy and shiny.
With the party and wedding scene approaching, fashion accessories and party wear is on top of everyone's list of priorities. Unfortunately, all this winter cheer comes with some not so cheery side effects. Dry, listless, static-prone, damaged locks seem to be the order of the day for many. Fortunately, there is help at hand. Veteran hair care experts say there is a lot you can do to protect your locks from the damage that occurs due to the cold.

SIMPLE SOLUTIONS TO COMMON WINTER HAIR WOES

Dry, frizzy ends
Solution:
Schedule trims every six to eight weeks. Ensure that split ends are carefully snipped off. Then, using your palms and fingertips, rub some coconut oil into your hair. Leave it on overnight for best results.

Use a conditioner. This time, try a natural conditioner like coconut oil as coconut oil penetrates into the cortex (the central part of the hair), thrice more than other oils.

Static and flyaway hair
Solution:
A natural leave in conditioner and/or pre-shampoo conditioner like coconut oil can help add body to your hair. Steam your hair with a hot towel post oiling. Wash with a mild shampoo and lukewarm water. Coconut oil is one of the best remedies for damaged and unmanageable hair. It cuts down static charges of flyaway hair, softens your hair and restores its sheen.

Dull, brittle and lacklustre hair
Solution:
The reduced moisture in the air during winter continues to be a major hair harmer. What your hair needs is intensive nutrition, which can come in the form of a regular oil massage. A hair wash coupled with a coconut oil massage one hour before shampooing protects the hair from becoming brittle. Over a period of time, you will find a significant difference in the health and texture of your hair. Coconut oil serves as a first-rate hair damage shield. It smoothens the outer protective covering of the hair, refurbishes the lost shine and aids grooming.

Dandruff Solution:
Winter is when the scalp is at its flakiest due to dry weather and changes in metabolism. The solution lies in retaining moisture in the scalp so that the skin doesn't peel off. Regular application of coconut oil in tandem with anti-dandruff agents such as neem, lime and tea tree oil can help combat dandruff.

TRIED AND TESTED WINTER HAIR CARE TIPS
Oil your hair at least one hour before you wash it. This will not only take care of the dryness but also reduce the damage caused by chemicals present in shampoos. Coconut oil penetrates the cortex and also forms a coat on the external covering (cuticle), thereby protecting the hair.

Cold weather can cause your hair to become dry, listless and susceptible to hair breakage, dandruff etc. A coconut oil massage can work miraculously in such circumstances. It helps to make the hair soft, shiny and supple.

Cold weather makes hair frizzy and static-prone. It is essential to use a heavier, richer moisturizer, such as coconut oil, twice a week. Apply the oil on your scalp with your fingertips, massage for 10 minutes and leave for an hour.

Add moisture to your hair. This is especially necessary if your hair has been chemically treated. Despite the wide array of conditioners available in the market, coconut oil continues to be the best conditioner.

This winter don't let the cold stand in between you and great hair. It's a season of joy and merriment. Make the most of it with your new hair care regimen.
