Winter is all about warming up around the fireplace with your favorite hot coffee, but the delight is over as soon as you run your hands through your hair. Winter is not just accompanied by sturdy, gusty winds, but hair falls too. One of the primary causes of hair fall is winter dryness. The freezing temperature outside and heating systems inside can take a toll on your hair. The harsh winds of winter can rob essential moisture from your skin, including skin that’s covered by hair. So, you may experience dryness, not just in your skin, but the hair itself. Your hair may turn brittle and frizzy in this season. So, the winter season is not very friendly for our hair and like our skin, our hair, too, needs extra care. Here are some remedies for you to avoid hair fall in winter.
Most people, out of laziness, avoid combing hair during winters. A messy bun or messy ponytail is good for a grocery shopping but not good enough for your hair life. The first tip to take care of your hair during winter is to brush your hair with a wooden comb or fiber round-tipped brush. Comb your hair thrice a day, to avoid tangled hair. The more detangled your hair is, the better it fights against hair fall in winter.
Shampooing and conditioning-
Winters are dry and lousy. It’s really important to keep your scalp clean for the healthy growth of hair. So, use a mild shampoo to exfoliate and cleanse the scalp to eradicate debris and sebum. Use a moisturizing conditioner to nourish and soften your dry hair. You can also go for the dryness-care winter shampoo, it has oil nutrients which when absorbed by the scalp, prevents it from getting all dry and itchy. Remember to use lukewarm water and not hot water while washing your hair. The hot water will dry out the scalp and cause more hair problems including hair thinning and hair fall. What you need is a gentle shampoo that can nourish your hair while cleaning them.
We recommend Pilgrim Sulfate Free Shampoo. The three primary ingredients – White Lotus, Camellia, and Argan oil work together for strengthening the hair, soothing the scalp, and repairing the damaged strands. Washing your hair with this shampoo will leave you with strong, smooth, cleansed, and lustrous hair.
To avoid hair fall in the winter season, it is important to prevent your hair from dandruff. Dandruff is a common problem when the scalp becomes dry. You can apply lemon juice to your scalp and leave it there for about 20 minutes before washing. Do this once a day until you notice an improvement in your dandruff.
Hot oil massage is a wonderful addition to your winter hair care routine. Oil brings nourishment to the hair and protects your hair against harsh winter winds. Remember not to expose your hair to the sun when you oil your hair. Massage your hair with hot oil and leave it for 2 hours before you take a shower. Jasmine oil, olive oil, mustard oil, almond, and coconut oil are best for avoiding winter hair fall. You can use the Pilgrim Argan Oil Hair Mask that can help bring shine and a healthy bounce to your dull and lifeless hair. Argan oil protects hair from environmental pollutants and UV damage. Enhanced with Camellia and White Lotus, it can strengthen the damaged strands and bring silky perfection to your hair.
Protect your hair while sleeping-
You must have heard from your Grandma that braiding your hair before going to bed, brings a good texture in the hair, and prevents hair fall. It is also a scientifically proven fact. Sleeping with untied hair can cause tearing and tension in the hair roots which leads to hair fall. However, if you tie your hair overnight, hair gets abundant time to relax and holds the moisture in the scalp, which is a vital requirement in winter.
Cover your head before going out-
It is necessary that you cover your head with a cap or scarf every time you step out in the winter. Winter winds are cold, dry, and absorb all the moisture from your hair. You can also use the Pilgrim Argan Oil Hair Serum that is the perfect mix of argan oil, camellia, and white lotus, it is a quick fix for dull and frizzy hair. You can use it with dry as well as wet hair. It will give an extra boost of gloss and conditioning and detangle the most difficult knots. It is a non-greasy formula that coats your hair without being sticky or oily and restores the hair’s youthful luster.
Watch your diet-
Include biotin-rich food like broccoli, kale, cabbage, nuts, and soybeans if you are experiencing hair fall in winter. Include fatty acids in your regular diet to avoid winter hair fall and boost hair growth. You can also find fatty acids in avocado, fish, almonds, flax seeds, nuts, and walnuts. Corn and tomatoes are rich in methyl sulfonyl methane (MSM), which is great for producing a hair protein known as keratin. Keratin protects your hair from stress and damage.
Chilling temperature and low humidity can take essential moisture from your hair. Take steam to retain the moisture content and boost your hair growth. It will help open the follicles of hair so that it can grip more nutrients.
