It's WINTER! You might be feeling joyous given that the season brings with it a bagful of festivals. But the winter also brings along harsh, cold and dry weather, which may sound a death knell to the health of your lovely hair and skin. We had previously shared with you tips to take care of your skin during the winters, and this time we will be showing you five ways to keep your hair hale and healthy during the colder months.
Some of the major issues that one faces during the winter season are dandruff and flakiness, dry and tangled hair, frizzy and static hair, brittle hair causing split ends and breakage, and limp hair. Along with tips, we will also share some of our favourite hair care products for the cold winter season.
Fight flakiness and dandruffImagine dressing in your finest midnight blue dress or dark suit, but instead of noticing your well-dressed self, people’s eyes fall on small, white flakes on your shoulders. One of the biggest issues one faces during the dry, cold months of winter are dehydrated scalp and tresses. And this is the root cause of flakiness and formation of dandruff on your hair. It is necessary that your hair and scalp receive its regular dose of moisturisation to ensure that they don’t feel the brunt of the harsh weather. Along with oiling your hair regularly, we’d suggest you use the Tigi Catwalk Oatmeal and Honey Tween. This shampoo and conditioner duo remove impurities from your hair without stripping away the essential oils from the scalp and nourishes it back to life.
Inject life into your dry, brittle hairIt’s not just the summers, but the winters are also notorious for stripping away your hair away from its natural moisture, making them look dull and brittle. What adds to the damage is any exposure to the winter sun and the use of heat treatments like blow-drying before all those Christmas parties. Instead of drying your hair with a hair-dryer or styling it with a curling iron, we suggest you dry your hair using a good dry towel made of soft fabric and then let it dry on its own. Additionally, you can use the Tigi Bed Head Urban Antidotes Re-Energize Tween. This Shampoo and Conditioner Duo is the perfect rehab for your hair that is in dire need of a moisture boost and nourishment. The shampoo deep cleanses hair and scalp of impurities and product residue, while the conditioner injects moisture with a beautiful finish to the hair.
Avoid colouring or bleaching your hairLet your hair be its natural self during the cold weather. Flaunt your tresses in their natural colours and put off those plans you had to get a wicked streak of colour on your hair. Chemically treating your hair during the winter means further stripping them of their moisture and natural oils. And then maintaining the colour and health of your hair would be an additional task on hand. But if you’ve already bleached or coloured your hair before the winter set in, we’d suggest you the Tigi S Factor True Lasting Colour Conditioner, the perfect product for those who want to maintain their hair colour and at the same time flaunt a beautiful shine too. It softens your tresses, locks moisture and colour pigments from fading away and adds lustre to your hair. Now that’s what we call a conditioner.
Control frizzy static hair and flyaways.One of the best things about winter is that you get to flaunt some of your best collection of scarves, caps and hoodies. While they protect you from the biting cold, it is a bane for your hair. The woollen strands can actually trap your hair strands, absorb in moisture and oil from them, leaving your tresses in a fizzy, static mess. It then becomes difficult to contain them with a regular brush or comb. And for such situations, we suggest that you tackle the frizz with the Tigi Bed Head Control Freak Serum and the After Party Hair Cream. While the serum is something you can make it a part of your hair care routine, the hair cream makes your hair manageable with a vibrant shine, preventing static build-up.
Keep yourself and your hair hydrated.This goes without saying that one of the best ways to maintain your hair and skin health is to keep yourself hydrated regularly. If you’ve noticed, on days when you do not drink enough water, not only your skin but even your hair begins to look dull by the end of the day. An extra step that you can take for your hair to maintain its moisture would be with Tigi Bed Head Recovery conditioner. It not only repairs the damage your hair faces in this weather, it’s turbo hydration molecules moisturise hair and maintain it too.
With these steps, you can enjoy the season to its best, with beautiful looking hair and zero worries about any damage to it.
