All of us basically face two major seasons throughout the year –winter and summer. Changes in environmental temperature along with changes in humidity level affect our health as well as our skin and hair. Wide fluctuations in temperature during season change also affect the moisture content in the air.
In summer we tend to spend more time in outdoor activities with increased physical activity. As result our skin and hair is exposed to sunshine and heat. To maintain our body temperature our body needs to work harder and as a result our skin and hair health gets affected. In summer months we tend to wear lighter clothes and do not cover our head as result both the skin and the hair gets exposed dust and heat.
During winter months our hair and skin lacks the moisture it requires because the air is drier and intake of water is also reduced. Impact of season change affects hair the most. Normally hair growth follows a definite cyclical pattern. The antigen or the growth phase is followed by a transitional phase when the growth ceases which lasts for about 2-3 weeks. During this phase the hair loss increases and one may lose about 50-100 hairs per day. This is a normal biological rhythm to be followed by another growth phase. In winter months the scalp becomes dry and itchy as the air is low in moisture content. This aggravates dandruff and irritation and causes hair fall.
The simple way to reduce irritation of scalp and dandruff, apply coconut or olive oil and massage on the scalp or the best way is to apply Mitvana anti dandruff hair oil. Massage this light oil on the scalp at night daily that will reduce the dandruff and ultimately the hair fall. Rinse it out with shampoo and condition. The most annoying thing in winter is the frizzy hair and the static charges. Always wash your hair with lukewarm water that helps retain natural oils that protects the hair. Leave-in-conditioners can also help retain moisture because lack of moisture in winter leaves your hair dull looking, frizzy and lifeless. During winter comb your hair carefully to detangle the frizzy hair.
Slow massaging of hair with Mitvana nourishing hair oil helps the oil penetrate deep into the roots. This not only helps moisturize your hair, improves blood circulation in the scalp and thereby nourishing the hair follicles and thus preventing hair fall.
Drying your long hair is a big challenge in winter months. The most important precaution to be taken is not to put your hair while it is still wet. Wet hair and scalp attracts fungi which causes dandruff. Never rub your dry hair with towel as friction may cause split ends and damaged hair. The most accepted way to dry your hair after a bath is to squeeze the extra water with a fresh, dry and soft towel and then is required use a blow dryer. If at all you need to speed up the process then use hot air by holding the dryer at least 15-20 centimeters away from your hair.
The hair requires maximum moisture during winter months and to maintain the health of your hair, you need to use good natural hair oils and conditioners. Always wash your hair with Mitvana hair care products which contains natural actives and enough conditioners. If you need extra conditioning then you can use Mitvana conditioning serum after washing your hair thoroughly. This should be applied from mid-lengths to the ends of the hair. Always focus on oldest and the most damaged parts of the hair. Leave it for a few minutes and rinse with lukewarm water as this will seal in the moisture and leave your hair feeling smooth and lustrous. This little extra care of your hair during winter months will go a long way to ensure your good hair health.
