Give your hair a little extra this winter!

by - 12/07/2022

Winters come with so many things. Basking in the crisp sun, picnics, lots of fruits and vegetables, chic boots and coats and so many other things that we wait for year long. Especially if you live in North India, then there are myriads of activities that can't be done in the scorching heat and you wait for the temperatures to go down. With all this comes the harsh side of winters too. Yes I am talking about dry skin and frizzy hair.

During these colder months, our hair and skin need extra care. While it's easier to slather up on moisturizers and lotions, the same can't be said about our hair. Taking care of hair is a mammoth task and it's even more challenging if you have curly hair like me. So after much trial and error, I have found a few ways that would help keep hair nourished, especially during these months.

1. Don't use hot water to wash your hair.

The winters are notorious for drying our mane and if you use hot water for hair washing, it would further strip off the moisture present in our crowning glory. Not only that, hot water increases the appearance of dandruff too. Always use warm water instead.

2. Oil your hair thoroughly before you shampoo.

Oiling your hair with a good hair oil has innumerable benefits. Choose a hair oil that has safe and tested ingredients and works for a number of causes.

Recently I have started using the Coco Onion Natural Hair Oil from Little extra love. I love that it's a concoction of effective ingredients like coconut oil, onion oil, sea satin, bhringraj etc. It is mineral oil free, paraben free and fragrance free which means it's absolutely safe for our hair.

This powerful formula strengthens our hair from root to tip, deeply nourishes our hair and hence fight hair fall. Also helps regenerate new follicles and helps in healthy hair growth and fights dandruff too. I have experienced noticeable reduction in hair fall and dandruff since I have started using it. Apply this oil and massage your scalp 30 minutes before you go for a hair wash. Follow this regime and thank me later!

3. Comb your hair at least twice a day.

If you have curly hair like me, which remains tangled for most part of our lives, then it's possible that combing is a big chore. This can become even more challenging during winters. However combing has innumerable benefits. It increases the blood flow to the scalp and also prevents dandruff.

So even when you don't feel like brushing and want to remain in the bun hairstyle, remember my words and do yourself a favour.

Use a wide tooth comb always. 

4. Adequate hydration and nutrition. 

You may not feel thirsty enough during winters so the water consumption may considerably go down. However that's detrimental to our skin and hair health. Make sure to consume at least 8 glasses of water and have plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables on a daily basis.

5. Use gentle hair products.

Make sure to read and know all the ingredients of a product before you use it on yourself. The hair products of Little extra love have everything listed and are free from every type of chemicals. Personally I like to know about the composition of the products I use in detail and hence I love this brand because they declare everything. The best part? These products are really effective.

So girls which one of these tips seems most effective to you? What else would you like to add?
