Common winter hair woes and how to fix them

Be it summer or winter, no season shows mercy on both hair and skin. And since we have bid our goodbyes to summer for this year, we are almost prepared to welcome winter with open arms. As much as we love this season for bringing in the festive and holiday spirits, it isn’t a hidden fact that this season also comes along with a set of hair issues that can be a huge headache to deal with. The hair problems associated with cold winter months are unlike any other, and given their unique nature, these hair woes arise only during winter, so that’s a kind of relief. And as we speak of hair woes, while those pom-pom beanies look super adorable when sported with winter outfits, the amount of static that builds up in the mane can be ridiculously annoying. However, every problem has a solution, and luckily enough, we have got some incredible tips for you on how you can fix certain hair woes during winter. Listed below are a few common hair problems and easy ways to fix them.

Dry and brittle strands

Considering, the moisture levels in the air dips in a considerable amount in winter, your hair turns pretty dry and brittle. Winters are especially bad news for people with curly hair; given this hair type is already dry by nature. The most effective and easiest way to fix this hair situation is by including hydrating hair care products in your routine, and another thing you can do is to avoid using heat styling tools for a while as they can easily leave your hair drier.

Split ends

Split ends are one of the most common hair woes, and one of the best ways to get rid of them is by getting a haircut or regular hair trims. If you aren’t able to visit a salon for any reason, instead of waiting for the right time to book an appointment at the salon, you can take the matter into your own hands. Don’t worry, we aren’t asking you to chop your hair in an elaborative way, we are just suggesting to get rid of split ends by taking thin strands of hair between your fingers and twisting it around to let split-ends take the center stage so that you can cut them away. This way, you will be able to fix the issue temporarily until you book an appointment at the salon.

Static flyaways

Has it ever happened to you when you take your beanie or hat off and your hair stands up awkwardly? We are sure it must have happened with almost each one of us. The dip in temperature causes your hair to pick up an electrical charge, which in turn, makes your hair stand up awkwardly. The only way to combat this issue is by including hydrating shampoo and conditioner in your routine. Additionally, you should avoid blow-drying your hair and consider switching your cotton pillowcase with a silk pillowcase to fix this issue.

Matted hair


Matted hair is also a pretty common issue, which happens during winter. While it does look cute when you leave your hair open under hats and then tuck the tresses inside the jacket to protect them from cold and dry air, it can also result in mattifying of hair. Instead of leaving your hair open, you can wear it in a sleek bun or braid to keep it from mattifying.

Dry and itchy scalp

Given the drying nature of winter, it’s not just your skin that bears the brunt but your scalp as well. Your scalp can get pretty dry during winter, and the lack of hydration and moisture in the scalp results in flaking and itching. The easiest way to fix this issue is by giving yourself a hot oil massage, and it will instantly provide you some relief from itching.
