Winter and hair fall go hand-in-hand. The season brings a range of skin and hair issues. It makes our hair scalp dry, flaky, static, and frizz. As a result, we suffer excessive hair fall during winter. The exposure to the harsh cold weather and constant transition to heated indoors wipe out moisture from our hair making them dull, which is more susceptible to damage. It also puts the hair strands at risk of breakage due to the dry and cold winter air. Here are simple and easy tips to save yourself from hair fall during winter.
Include amla in your diet
Begin your day with an amla shot or just bite into amla. You can also consume it in powder form too. This will strengthen your hair roots and nourish them.
Oil your hair
Since the winter season leads to dryness, oiling provides nourishment to your hair. Oil your hair at least once/twice a week with coconut oil, amla oil, bhringraj oil, castor oil, sesame oil or a mixture of all of these.
