As we move from colder months to hotter months or even when we move from a humid climate to dry cold weather, our skin and hair suffer a major knock. Whenever there is a change in the temperature, our hair often feels dry, sometimes oily and unimaginable and this makes our scalp really itchy. During this seasonal change, hair needs more conditioning while your scalp needs stimulation to regain the natural sebum.
Let’s get on with the routine you should follow in different seasons
We all have to face every season of the year. It’s not that if I like winter, then during summer and rainy seasons, I can go to colder places for every 3-4 months and that too every year. It isn’t feasible right? We have to take care of our hair and skin in every changing seasons. Starting with winter, let’s see what we can do about it-
If you live at a place where the weather gets severe cold during these months, you should definitely follow a routine.
1. Moisturize your hair and scalp with essential oils
Say goodbye to flaky scalp and start applying oils on your scalp and hair to moisturize them. Use a live-in conditioner or add hair oil to your daily hair wash routine. Use hair growth serums after every wash because dry scalp leads to hair fall.
If you suffer from flaky scalp due to dry atmosphere, apply heavy oils like coconut, or castor oil directly to your scalp. Let the oil dive deep into your scalp for 20-30 minutes and nurture it effectively.
2. Avoid Frequent Washes
Over washing your hair will wash off the natural oils from your hair that keep them moisturized and protected. Try to extend period between your washes as much as possible. If you have habit of washing hair daily, make it every two days. If you still observe dryness, then make it three.
3. Commit to Weekly deep hair conditioning your hair
During winter, your hair is drier and itchier than ever because of lack of moisture in the air. Just like a weekly face mask is necessary for healthy and radiant skin, weekly hair masks too makes a hell lot of difference when dealing with dry and damaged hair. Not only, it reverses the effects of dryness and frizziness, but is the best preventive measures to ensure that your hair gets protected from damage.
For an affordable overnight treatment, call out to coconut oil, a complete moisturizer; massage it gently from roots to tips on dry hair. Put down a cloth or a towel on your pillow to avoid any mess and call it night. Next day morning, wash your hair and see the instant results.
4. Olive Oil Massaging
Heat some olive oil according to your hair volume. Massage it slowly in to your scalp; let the olive oil penetrate deep into the roots. This will keep your scalp moisturized and improves blood circulation in your scalp. Optionally, you can mix olive oil and coconut oil for deep conditioning treatment.
Humid and Warm Weather
There is specially a problem when the weather is humid and warm because of more moisture in the air. If the hairs are very porous and dry because of chemical processing and frequent hair styling, hair will suck-up the moisture and excel it. Damp hair also creates moisture and a habitat ground for bacteria on the scalp.
To minimize the inflammatory effects of bacteria on the scalp, be sure to use a shampoo formulated to deep-condition the scalp skin. Pomegranate Peel is considered as the best ingredient to add to shampoos because deep-cleanse effectively without over-drying.
When the Weather is Extra Sunny
Abundant sunshine at any time o the year, especially during summer, sucks out all the moisture from our hair and make them frizzy. Regardless of any season, U.V protection should be a part of your hair care plan. Similar to their impact on your skin, U.V rays can dry out all the moisture and weaken your hair.
1. Cover and tie-up
Wearing a hat between 12 to 4 pm is the most common advice given to everyone. Plaits, pony-tail, or even a simple bun can prevent your hair from getting damaged through harmful U.V rays and help you stay cool as well.
2. Stay cool
Hot water showers should be strictly avoided when beating sunny weather. This is the least you can do to your hair by not torturing them with hot shower after an exposure in the scorching sun. A cool water rinse will help your hair retain its natural shine.
3. Use U.V protection for hair
Save your hair and scalp from the damage by applying good quality of hair products with SPF when you need to be out in sun for long enough.
4. Drink Enough
Drink enough water to keep yourself hydrated. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables to absorb the water from them. This helps cleaning the toxic levels in the body. Consume enough amount of water since being hydrated means healthy hair.
