These Tips Will Help You Combat Dry And Flaky Scalp During The Winter Season

You might have had a fleeting affair with dry scalp during the fall, but it's winter season and it is cold, dry and harsh. Winters can make your skin extremely dry and that includes your scalp. Dry scalp is an issue faced by many during the winter season, thanks to the moisture being sucked out due to the weather conditions. And the constant juggle between the cold temperature outside and the warm one inside, this situation becomes even worse. This makes your scalp flaky and itchy, and cause issues such as dandruff.

Today, we have compiled a list of easy and effective tips that can help you combat the dry and flaky scalp during winters. If you are also suffering from this condition, follow these tips and you would see amazing results.


Tip 1- Use Alcohol-Free Hair Products

Alcohol has the ability to such the moisture of the skin. It thus makes your scalp dry. Combined with the harsh and drying winter weather, products that contain alcohol make the scalp super dry and cause itchiness and flakiness. So, flip your hair care product and keep it back if it contains alcohol.


Tip 2- Give Your Scalp A Nourishing Massage

The nourishing and moisturising vegetables oils are a great way to restore the moisture in your scalp. Massage your scalp with coconut, olive or almond oils at least twice a week to reduce the dryness.


Tip 3- Give A Rest To The Heat Styling Products

Heat styling tools like blow dryers and straighteners have become a constant in our lives. We use them without any thought. These tools are proven to leave your scalp and hair dry and dehydrated. So, avoid using these tools to prevent your scalp from becoming dry.


Tip 4- Treat Your Hair With ACV Rinse

Apple cider vinegar is known for its antibacterial properties. The cold weather can disrupt the pH balance of the skin leaving it dry. Rinsing your scalp with apple cider vinegar maintains the pH of your skin and wards off the dryness.

Dilute half a cup of apple cider by adding it into 2 cups of water and rinse your scalp with this solution after you are done washing your hair. Leave it on for about 5 minutes and rinse it thoroughly afterwards.


Tip 5- Protect The Scalp From The Cold Winds

A great way to protect your scalp during the winter season is not to expose it to the cold winds. Use a hair accessory like a hat or a scarf to achieve that.


Tip 6- Avoid The Instant Shift Between High And Low Temperatures

Central heating has made our lives so much easier. It gives us relief from the cold winter. That, unfortunately, is not how your scalp feels. The instant and constant shift between the cold and warm temperature can mess with your scalp and make it dry and vulnerable. So, avoid this juggling between extreme temperatures.


Tip 7- Tweak Your Hair Care Routine

Winter weather is a lot different from summer or fall. That means the way you care for your scalp during winters will also differ. Shift to winter-friendly products and formula to give our scalp the nourishment it needs.


Tip 8- Try Out Some Home Remedies

We tend to divert towards the store-bought products to combat the dry scalp. Most often these products don’t perform as you would like them to. There are many natural ingredients that are replete with moisturising properties. Treat your scalp with some hydrating home remedies.


Tip 9- Opt For A Deep Conditioning Treatment

Deep-conditioning treatment is the perfect way to pamper your scalp during the winter and ward off dryness, itchiness and flakiness. It conditions your scalp, adds moisture to it and shields your scalp from further damage.

Try these tips and we promise they will turn out ot to be your scalp-saver during the winter season.
