Detox is generally associated with getting over an addiction or with weight loss but did you know it is equally important to detox your hair once in a while? Hair follicles are just like the pores on the skin which become clogged with dead cells, dirt and pollution. This results in hair fall and lustre-less hair. Detox helps to cleanse the scalp. For healthy and strong hair, a clean and healthy scalp is of utmost importance especially in winters when the cold winds & dryness bring frizzy, rough, brittle, unmanageable mane, itchy scalp with them. The dry winds steal the moisture from the hair and our scalp needs more protection, tending and care during these winter months.
HAVING A BALANCED AS WELL AS NUTRITIOUS DIET: One should add loads of green vegetables as well as fresh fruits along with products rich in protein in order to give your body complete nourishment. The health of our hair follicles is dependent mainly on the kind of nourishment provided by the body thus, a balanced diet is utmost important, especially during the winters.
REGULAR HOT OIL MASSAGE: As the winter winds tend to steal away the moisture of your mane, a periodical hot oil massage helps in stimulating the hair follicles as well as improving the blood circulation. Caution: Do not leave the oil for too long. A thorough rinse is a mandate. The choice of oil is dependent on the texture as well as the condition of your hair.
MANAGE TO KEEP YOUR SCALP SQUEAKY CLEAN: During the winter season, the scalp tends to get choked by the dirt dry, dead cells, dandruff, etc. This impacts the health of the follicles greatly. Thus, it is essential that scalp hygiene is looked after thoroughly.
JUDICIOUS SHAMPOO REGIME: One should shampoo regularly.
CAUTION: But not as many times as you did during the summer season. The main reason behind it is that excessive shampooing tends to make our hair even drier. Shampooing two times a week should be sufficient.
While shampooing, keep in mind that very hot water should be avoided to retain the natural moisture of the strands as well as the scalp.
CONDITIONING: AN EFFECTIVE STRATEGY: A rich conditioner would act as a guard for your hair during these harsh months. It is necessary to condition your hair after every wash as it would enhance its strength & shine. Natural conditioners also work well. Rinse the conditioner thoroughly using lukewarm water.
LIMITED AMOUNT OF EXPOSURE: One needs to limit the exposure of our hair by covering it well while stepping out. It acts as a protective layer which keeps the harsh weather at bay & in turn protects the manes.
AVOIDING THE USE HEATING TOOLS AND EXCESSIVE STYLING: The various styling tools which we use should be avoided as they tend to dry the hair which in turn results in excessive hair fall and breakage.
PAMPERING YOUR MANES: THE PRIME HIGHLIGHT: One can opt for a DIY hair mask not only to pamper your manes but also to rejuvenate them. A lot of natural products that we tend to use in our daily life have great hidden qualities. When these are used on hair they work like magic. It’s time to follow your grandma’s recipes.
All in all, you have to be aware of the harshness of monstrosity of pollution and its effect on your hair, and be prepared to take utmost care of it.
