If you live in a cold place where the winter is felt, you can imagine the effects dry and cold weather conditions can have on your hair.We’re talking about dryness, frizz and the general lack of that smooth, shiny summer hair.


Often times, exposure to harsh cold weather and then transitioning indoors can destroy the moisture of our hair, which causes a dull appearance in our hair. Your hair strands are not only at risk of breakage due to dry and cold weather, but they may also face problems such as scalp dryness and dandruff.

So how can we take better care of our hair? How can we minimize these harsh winter effects on our hair and prevent it from getting damaged? We have brought together winter hair care tips and tricks for you to have healthier hair this winter.

Hair Care Argan Oil

1. Moisten your hair and scalp with hair oil.

In the colder months, using indoor heating can expel too much moisture and dry the hair. Sometimes this condition creates a dry, flaky scalp. To effectively combat dryness, you can use a conditioner or add hair oil to your winter hair care routine. You should apply a few drops of nourishing hair oil to your hair ends every day to help your hair regenerate with the moisture it needs in winter, prevent breakage and keep your hair soft and shiny. We recommend argan oil and jojoba oil for this process.

If you suffer from dandruff in your hair due to dry and flaky scalp during winter, you can apply a heavier oil treatment such as coconut oil or castor oil directly to the scalp. You can keep the hair oil you applied in your hair for 20-30 minutes to deeply moisturize the scalp and then wash your hair as usual.

Using Conditioner

2. Avoid washing your hair frequently.

If washing your hair frequently is the cause of your hair problems, it is time to make a change in your hair care routine in winter. Washing your hair excessively causes it to remove the natural oils it creates, which moisturizes and protects the hair, which is more important than ever in the cold months.

Try to extend the time between washes as much as possible until you find the perfect time frame for your hair. First, if you wash your hair usually every other day, try it every other day. If you find that your hair is still not damp, try washing every three days. To aid this transition, you can use dry shampoo between washes to keep your hair from smelling and keep it looking clean.

To give another tip for dry hair, since your hair follicles are not too oily, just wash your hair with conditioner and try to skip the shampoo altogether.

Drying Hair Without Using Heat

3. Avoid heat styling your hair.

The biggest enemy of dry and damaged hair is to heat the hair. Since your hair is already in a fragile state in cold weather, the possibility of breakage increases when you are styled with heat and your hair loses moisture. To soothe frizz in your hair, you can use a few drops of hair oil to air dry your hair instead of heat drying as much as possible. Also, you can minimize the use of curling irons in winter and opt for heat-free curls and waves.

4. Dry your hair before you pop out the door.

While this is a regular habit for you during the warmer months, it is very important to let your hair dry completely before you rush in the winter. Cold weather expands the hair shaft, making the hair more prone to breakage and causing your hair color to fade faster. In winter, give your hair extra time to air dry before going out during the day, or better yet, you can change your winter hair care routine to night time so you can prevent your hair from drying out from the blow-dry heat.

If you absolutely have to leave the house with wet hair, you should make sure you protect your hair from the air by tucking it under your scarf or hat. The less your hair is exposed to winter weather conditions, the better.

Hair Care with Hair Mask

5. Choose a weekly deep conditioning hair mask.

Weekly hair care masks can make a difference in dry and damaged hair, just as a weekly face mask is necessary for healthy, glowing skin. They not only reverse the effects of dryness, but are also an excellent preventative measure to ensure your hair is protected year-round and at optimum health. Hair masks are quick and highly effective ways to benefit your hair in less than 20 minutes. Think of hair masks as high-strength conditioners, you can provide benefits to your hair such as softening and moisturizing, increasing growth, shine, and even fighting scalp infections. While hair companies offer different hair masks for various hair problems, you can also go straight to your kitchen cabinets and create a natural hair mask at home.

If you notice that your hair is still very dry in winter even with the methods you apply weekly, you may want to moisturize your hair with hair oil or serum overnight to get an extra effect. Similar to a night cream for your skin, an overnight application works deep into the hair strands, moisturizing them from within. As an easy, affordable overnight treatment, we recommend coconut oil that you can apply to your scalp and hair from root to tip. Be sure to apply the oil to dry hair as the oil will absorb more easily from dry hair than wet hair.

Using Silk for Hair

6. Choose silk.

We all love to protect ourselves against the winter element with our warm woolen hats and scarves. But did you know that they actually cause breakage and static hair? Fitted hats can trap oils in the roots, leaving the ends dry and prone to damage.

As a solution, you can wrap your hair with a silk scarf before putting on your comfortable hat. It will protect your hair from static and static, and it will reduce those dreaded hat hair.

Since silk is naturally hypoallergenic, it is known to prevent thinning, knotted hair and breaking at the ends by stimulating moisturization. While cotton and wool feel soft to the touch, its weave actually grabs and pulls the individual threads, causing damage and breakage. That’s why we also recommend sleeping on a silk pillowcase at night.

7. Use dry shampoo for soft hair.

You can carry a small bottle of dry shampoo with you to make your hair look clean and voluminous. Apply a small amount to the roots of your hair and apply it to your hair with the help of your fingers. Dry shampoo opens the hair shaft, makes the hair look more voluminous and revitalizes your hairstyle.

Abundant Water Consumption for Healthy Hair

8. Do not be dehydrated!

Did you know that a single hair is made up of 25% water?

Hydration starts from the inside and drinking enough water helps stimulate the hair to energize and grow from root to tip. It also prevents scalp problems such as dryness, itching or dandruff during the winter months by stimulating a healthier scalp. Have you ever noticed that your skin looks dull and tired when you don’t drink enough water? Your hair is the same! Staying hydrated strengthens shiny and shiny hair by helping to prevent hair ends from breaking and brittleness.
