Winter Hair Care | Mathkar Blogs

Updated: Aug 23, 2021

Winter has already set in! While it is time to thank the stars for putting an end to all the sun damage that your hair was being put through, it is also time to start planning a haircare routine that is fit for winter. Summer might be gone, taking its troubles with it, but winter means a whole new set of problems that you need to deal with.

While the season is perfect to get comfortable with a cup of hot coffee, you can’t ignore the fact that the dry and rough weather can wreak havoc on your hair if the right precautions aren’t taken. Your hair starts to find it harder to retain moisture, making it brittle and prone to breaking and damage, not to mention the frizz and static that often comes with your winter wardrobe. However, these are all problems that can be avoided with ease as long as you have the right hair care routine for winter.

Hair care Tips For Winter

1. Fight Dandruff

Your scalp is drier and itchier than ever during the winter months because of the lack of moisture in the air. This leads to issues like dandruff and aggravated scalp irritation, which can lead to hair fall. What most people don’t realize is that the dandruff problem can be super manageable with the right care. All you will need is a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil and a teaspoon of lemon juice. Heat the oil for a couple of seconds until it is warm and then mix it with the lemon juice. Massage the oil into your scalp and leave it in for 20-30 minutes. Rinse it out with shampoo followed by conditioner.

2. Apply Serum

One of the most annoying things about winter is all of the static. The hoodies, sweater, scarves... all seem to gang up on your hair, making it a static, frizzy mess. To tackle this, use a good hair brush that has a combination of plastic and wide bristles . Wash your hair only with lukewarm water, not hot water, as hot water will strip away the natural oils that protect and nourish your hair. Apply a hair serum to keep your hair smooth.


3. Oil For Hair Health

Warm up two teaspoons of coconut oil and massage it slowly on your scalp. This slow massaging helps the oil penetrate deep into the roots. This will help to keep your scalp moisturized and improve blood circulation, ensuring that your follicles get enough nourishment. It will also prevent hair fall. Optionally, you can use a few drops of the oil to coat the entire length of your hair as a deep conditioning treatment.


4. Always Air Dry

Drying your hair out completely can be a pain, especially if you have long hair like mine. But you should never cover your hair or tie while it is still damp. Damp hair and scalp attract a lot of problems like dandruff, breakage, and split ends. You must also never rub your hair with a towel as the friction will cause damage. The best way to dry your hair would be to gently squeeze the excess water out with a towel and then let them dry naturally or if in a hurry you can also blow dry on the cool setting.

5. Conditioning: Do It Right

Your hair needs all the moisture it can get during winter, and this makes conditioning an important part of your hair care routine. Using hair oils and deep conditioning packs at least once a week becomes vital for maintaining the health of your hair. It is important that you end every wash with a conditioner. Shampoo your hair and then rinse it thoroughly. Once all the lather has been rinsed out, start applying the conditioner from the mid-lengths to the ends of your hair. Concentrate on the ends as they are the oldest and most damaged parts of your hair. Leave the conditioner in for a few minutes and then rinse it out with cool or lukewarm water. It is advised to end a wash with cool water as this will seal in the moisture and leave your hair feeling smooth and looking shinier.
