Winter is here! It is not as bad as zombies and dragons (Game of Thrones, much!), but the pandemic has not made things easier either. And while winter essentials may come in handy when it comes to protecting your skin, what about your luscious locks? Why, you ask? For starters, winter does the perfect crime of stealing the moisture from your scalp, leaving you with dry, frizzy, and lifeless hair. The nightmare is personified if you are of a dry hair type. In this case, your scalp becomes a breeding ground for dandruff and hair loss. To that effect, ensuring a perfect haircare routine during winter becomes a priority.
Empathising with your needs, we have noted down the best winter haircare routine you should follow. And don’t worry about finding the time between work from home (WFH) and your household chores because this routine will sit perfectly in your jam-packed schedule. So, let’s not waste any more time and dive right into it!
Perfect Winter Haircare Routine For Different Hair Types
1. Dry Hair
Winter can wreak havoc on a dry scalp, taking away the little moisture it has to make your hair look even more lifeless. But with the right haircare routine in place, you can avoid these winter woes. Here’s how:
- Oil treatments:
Start your winter haircare routine by oiling your hair. It is the ultimate way to keep your scalp nourished and hydrated. All you need to do is heat some coconut oil and apply it to the roots of your hair, leaving it overnight. Rinse it the next morning with moisturizing haircare products, such as the BBLUNT Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
- Hair mask:
A hair mask is destined to moisturize and nourish your dry hair to the tee! So, make sure that you apply a hair mask at least once a week. You can make a nourishing hair mask at home with ingredients like avocado, jojoba oil, egg, and honey to make your hair soft and shiny.
- Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner:
The best shampoo for winters is one that not only moisturizes, but is also super mild on your hair. The BBLUNT Intense Moisture shampoo and conditioner lock the moisture within your hair shafts to hydrate your scalp, giving you healthy and shiny locks.
Finish off your winter haircare routine with a hydrating serum that shields your hair from the cold and makes it manageable and glossy.
2. Oily Hair
Don’t think that you will be spared of the winter woes if you have oily hair. The cold climate can make your hair look unruly and even flatter. So, it’s best to follow this given routine.
Cleanse your scalp properly:
Unlock your winter haircare routine by understanding the right way to shampoo and condition your hair. As per dermats and leading trichologists, it is recommended that oily scalps be cleansed no more than twice a week. Similarly, when it comes to hair conditioners you should only use a dime-sized amount of the product and that too on the lengths of your hair. Additionally, you should consider opting for cleansing agents that remove the excess oil from your scalp while retaining the moisture.
- Opt for dry shampoos:
Frequent hair washes are not an ideal solution for oily hair woes. While shampooing helps remove the excess oil from your scalp, the length remains flat and lifeless. Instead, switch to dry shampoos, like the BBLUNT Back To Life Dry Shampoo. It’s the perfect fix for your non-shampooing days as it soaks up grease and refreshes your tresses in just a few applications.
During winters, your oily scalp can make your hair look even flatter and limp. Thus, it is prudent to use a volumizing treatment like the BBLUNT Blown Away Volumizing Leave-in Spray. It works like magic to add body to limp hair.
3. Curly Hair
Frizzy, unmanageable curls are a dreadful sight, aren’t they? Winter tends to further aggravate these woes to leave you with dull, unruly curls. But there’s nothing to worry about. Simply follow the given winter haircare routine to tame your curly mane in a few weeks.
- Deep conditioning:
Deep conditioning works exceptionally well for curly hair. It starts by moisturizing your scalp and adding a new life to your curls. It also restores your hair’s health and tames the frizz caused due to the cold weather. Thus, we recommend using a deep conditioning hair mask once a week to get the desired results.
- Oil treatment:
There’s nothing like a hot oil champi to nourish your hair during winters. It can help nourish your scalp and improve your hair health. Use any oil of your choice, from coconut, to almond, to jojoba to nourish your curly locks this winter.
- Frizz-free products:
Your winter haircare routine is incomplete without an anti-frizz product. Winters are known to cause extra frizziness to your curly hair. Hence, opting for frizz-free shampoos and conditioners and other such hair products are a viable option.They can help tame the frizz to revitalize your hair.
Finish off your haircare routine with a leave-in cream to retain the moisture in your hair shafts.
Now that you have the perfect haircare routine in place, let’s have a quick wrap up.
