Winter wedding season is upon us and all the attention is on looking our best. An important part of putting our best foot forward is making sure our hair also looks in place. Having dry, weak and frizzy hair can reduce the whole impact. Expert dermatologist Dr. Geetika Mittal Gupta shares some helpful tips to keep your hair healthy and the envy of others! In an Instagram post, she shares advice on what not to do with your hair.
“You try different hairstyles using heated tools, but do you know that the heat from these tools makes your hair fibers very weak? Your hair will feel dry, weak and frizzy – all common indicators of damaged hair,” Dr. Geetika Mittal mentioned. If you feel that way, here’s what you need to do to reduce the risk of heat damage and improve overall hair health.
1. Do not wash your hair with hot water. Rinse them with cold water. This will reduce the damage done to them.
2. Do not try to detangle your hair with sudden movements. Be a little easy and gentle with them. Try smooth strokes on your hair and feel it.
3. Take the time to hide the hair. Hair masking works similarly to a face mask to nourish and hydrate the skin. A hair mask improves the condition and health of your hair. This can be done through deep conditioning treatments or by using intensive hair conditioners.
4. Air dry or use cotton towels to soak wet hair. If you must use a hair dryer, remember to adjust the temperature.
5. Use a wide tooth comb to detangle the hair. This will not only reduce damage, but also hair loss. Load on a heat protectant spray. These sprays also come with UV protection.
