Tips to Prevent Dandruff Naturally in Winters-
Although the root cause of dandruff is usually too try or too oily scalp. However, there might be other general causes as well. So, here’s how to keep dandruff away in winter at home!
- Brush Sufficiently for Stimulation
Stimulating the scalp stimulates blood circulation, which increases oil secretion, and keeps the hair and scalp healthy. A well-nourished scalp suggests a flakes-free scalp.
- Maintain Hydration Levels
During the winter, we frequently forget to drink water, which dehydrates the skin and hair and contributes to increased dandruff. The typical daily water consumption restriction is set at 5 liters, but if it's too chilly, you can reduce it to 4 liters!
- Be Mindful of Eating A Balanced Diet
Changing your diet is one technique to get rid of dandruff. Vitamin B, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids are all great sources of nutrition for your hair and scalp. Consume fruits and raw salads as part of your diet. These nutrients are abundant in eggs, salmon, bananas, and spinach.
- Fenugreek & Apple Cider Vinegar for the Hacks
Soak fenugreek (methi) seeds in water overnight. Make a paste out of them. Leave the paste on your scalp for about half an hour. Rinse well with water. After shampooing, make a mug of water with two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and use it as a last rinse. Either, you can use a shampoo that has either or both the miraculous ingredients for kicking out dandruff from the scalp.
To The Bottom Line-
To protect yourself from the elements in really cold weather, you typically wear a woolen cap or keep your hood up.
Wrapping up warmly, on the other hand, can lead you to sweat more, making your hair appear oilier than usual. Waxy oils from your scalp become fluid at warmer temperatures and flow further down your hair with sweat, making the roots appear greasy.
It can also increase your chances of getting dandruff since the warmer, more humid microenvironment formed around your scalp is ideal for dandruff-causing microorganisms to thrive.
You don't have to stop being warm if you follow the above-mentioned tips, thankfully.
