Among the seasons, winter offers the best health, thanks to the strength one gains. But then, the same cannot be said of hair.

It needs a lot of attention and care, as during the cold season, hair tends to turn dry and dull.

Let's look at some of the common problems during winter, and the remedies to tackle them.

Dandruff

During winter, people tend to wash hair less frequently than usual, or use hot water to wash hair.

This releases more oil on the scalp, resulting in dandruff.

Remedies

Wash hair regularly, and condition too. Apply oil, and use hot towel around hair. Avoid coconut oil, as it tends to stick to the scalp.

Use anti-dandruff shampoo twice a week, and stop using once the dandruff disappears

Dry and dull hair

As oil glands get inactive, hair becomes dry and dull.

Remedies

Apply hair spray to hair brush before using it to set hair.

Before leaving home, always apply hair serum.

Use cold water for last rinse, after shampooing.

Split ends and hairfall

Cold waves and inactive oil glands can cause hair break and fall.

Remedies

Go in for hot towel treatment after applying oil to ensure it percolates into the roots.

Avoid frequent use of hair dryer and chemicals.
