7 Tips For Healthy Winter Scalp And Hair

The winter months are challenging for your crown - both scalp and hair. But let that not scare you. You deserve nothing but gorgeous hair!

Cold winds and low humidity are responsible for the skin getting dry in the winter. Couple that with hot showers and indoor heating, and your skin is left with almost no moisture to keep itself hydrated. This also affects your scalp, and the quality of your hair.

Your hair starts looking dull and lifeless, and your scalp could get dry and flaky. So how can you remedy that, and sport a lustrous mane this holiday season? Read on!
  1. Change your routine – The routine that worked for your hair in the summer will not work for it in the winter. Dull, frizzy, and brittle hair is the clue. You need to cut down on the number of times that you shampoo your hair.

You should also change your shampoo, and find one which moisturises your scalp, like a dry scalp shampoo. These are formulated to keep your scalp moisturised, even after you rinse it off. A DIY hair mask would put the shine back in your hair too.


Soak a cup of red hibiscus petals overnight. Make a paste of it, and add olive oil. Apply it to your scalp, wash off after an hour, and see the results.


2. Turn the temperature down in the bath – Nothing like a hot shower on a cold winter morning, right? Unfortunately, hot water is not good for your skin or your hair. Hot water can dry out your hair, and damage the delicate skin on your scalp. Shower with warm water, instead.


3. Hot oil massage – A flaky, itchy scalp can be quite embarrassing. If that’s you, sort out your hair issues this winter, with a hot oil massage. If you want to pamper yourself, go get a massage at a salon, or else apply castor, olive, almond, or coconut oil to your scalp, and massage it in well before you go to bed. It really helps.

4. Lose the heat – Air drying is the best way to dry your hair. Avoid blow drying your hair often during the winter months. However, if you have to use a hair dryer, opt for a leave-in conditioner when you wash your hair, and switch the setting on the dryer to low or medium.


Flat irons and curling irons should also be used less frequently. A twisted knot or a braid could help you get the tousled look, instead.


5. Invest in a humidifier – Heaters tend to dry your hair and skin out. So invest in a good humidifier that helps put the moisture back in the air, helping both your hair and your skin.


6. Protect your hair when outside – Caps, hats, and scarves are excellent fashion statements. But they are also a great way to add a protective layer over your hair, before you step out in the cold winter wind. Keep the headgear slightly loose-fitted – you wouldn’t want to stop blood circulation in your scalp.


7. Eat up – Beauty shines through from the inside. What you eat shows both on your skin and your hair. Make sure your diet includes healthy fats and fresh vegetables.


Our favourite things to eat are chia seeds, flaxseeds, almonds, eggs, avocados, spinach, tomatoes, and carrots. Also remember to stay hydrated. We tend to skimp on our water intake during the cold months, which can have adverse effects on your hair and skin.

Keep these points in mind, and you are sure to keep your hair and scalp woes at bay this winter season.
