Is Winter Causing flaky and dry scalp? -Here's the Remedies to Try this Winter-

Everyone has dry scalp at some point in their lives, but for some, it's a lifelong problem, especially this time of year when the weather sucks moisture from our hair and scalp. Because winter may bring on the dreaded dry scalp or exacerbate an existing scalp problem, we've created a list of treatment options to clean your scalp and keep dryness at bay.

Is Winter Responsible for Dandruff?

The majority of people confuse scalp flaking with dandruff. "Dandruff is not flaking. Dandruff is most commonly caused by seborrheic dermatitis or scalp psoriasis (a skin disorder that creates scaly areas and red skin on the scalp). In the winter, the worsening of flaking is frequently caused by dry skin conditions. The air is dry and devoid of moisture during the winter. The skin and scalp get dry as a result of this. When the scalp is dry, it becomes flaky, making it easier for dandruff to grow. What is the best method to handle it? Avoid excessive dryness by reducing the length of your hot water baths. Also, make sure the water isn't too hot.

Steps for a Good Hair Care Routine in Winters

To recover bounce, smoothness, and a healthy head of confidence, try these solutions for reducing severe dryness and balancing your scalp.

·  Use a Good Moisturizing Shampoo

It may be necessary to rotate between shampoos, but professional detoxifying and excellent moisturizing shampoos can make a significant impact. A cleanser shampoo will eliminate build-up without stripping your hair and will provide a thorough clean without drying out your scalp. Try a moisturizing shampoo that is clear of sulfates and parabens for optimum moisturization.

The humidity in the air decreases throughout the winter months. Cold weather dries out the skin on your entire body, especially your scalp. To keep your skin and scalp moist, use warm water instead of hot water in your shower and bath. Stay in the water for no more than 5 or 10 minutes at a time. Spending too much time in hot water might deplete your skin's natural oils. When washing your hair, use a nice hydrating shampoo like Atlas Haircare Organic Moisturizing Shampoo. It is a sulfate-free shampoo that won't dry out your scalp and cause dryness and flaky scalp.

This organic shampoo has a thorough cleansing action that eliminates pollutants from the hair and scalp without depleting natural oils. The combination of Argon Oil and Castor Seed Oil provides maximum nutrition to the hair and scalp. It is 4C hair Approved and suitable for all hair types. Wet your hair and apply a good quantity of shampoo to your hair; now massage it in until it lathers. Repeat. Rinse completely, then apply the Moisturizing Conditioner.

·   Always Use Conditioner

Shampooing should be performed at least twice a week. It is advisable to use a conditioner after using these shampoos. Conditioner is typically used as the second stage in the hair-washing process. While shampoo is designed to remove oil, dead skin cells, and hair products, conditioner softens and makes hair simpler to maintain. Conditioners, such as Atlas Haircare Organic 3-1 Co-Wash Conditioner, also helps to prevent hair shafts from damage. Our highly moisturizing 3 in 1 Conditioner quickly softens your hair, hydrates it, cleanses it, and detangles it. It is suitable for all hair types, including 4C hair. It is free of sulfates and paraben, so don't worry about the flaky and dry scalp.

·   Oiling Once or twice a Week

Oiling on a regular basis can also help reduce moisture and water loss; however, oiling often aggravates seborrheic dermatitis; thus, patients with this disease should avoid oiling. It is preferable to oil just before shampooing. Essential oils, which are typically non-greasy, can also aid with dryness and irritation. Try our Root Strengthening Growth Oil to stimulate the hair follicles and enhance blood circulation in the scalp.

Root Strengthening Growth Oil not only hydrates your scalp and stimulates hair growth but also protects your hair. It is rich in minerals and nutrients for the hair. This may help to prevent external damage while also strengthening the hair. As a result, one of the benefits of oiling hair is having strong and healthy hair.

·  Treat Your Scalp with Hair Balm/ Masks

A scalp oil treatment can assist in deeply hydrating your scalp and maintaining its natural moisture balance. Moroccan Castor Oil Development Balm includes stimulating ingredients in natural butters and oil that can accelerate hair growth, thicken hair, restore hair edges, and keep your scalp healthy and dandruff-free. Apply to the scalp and massage into the Hair two to three times a week, or as needed. Rub immediately over a dry scalp and hair, cover with a shower cap, and let on for at least 45 minutes for a deep hydration mask. Whatever mask you pick, try using it once a week until you see an improvement–which you will!


Take Away

Due to a reduction in relative humidity in the air, winter causes our hair and scalp to dry out, resulting in greater water loss from our skin and hair. This dryness can lead to increased itching and the production of scales or flakes. However, by following a few simple steps, we may prevent having a dry and itchy scalp in the winter. The most important thing is to keep the body moisturized by using sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Drink lots of water on a regular basis. Increase your probiotic intake as well; they help the immune system battle fungal infections that cause dandruff or dry scalp. Additionally, to boost the health of your scalp and future hair development, drink at least eight glasses of water every day.
