Everyone, and I mean everyone, loves their hair. While women obsess over shiny, healthy hair and obsessive over every new hairstyle, men also are very careful about their hair. But talking about just us girls, we love our hair, don’t we? From doing everything we can to have beautiful long hair to obsessing over every new haircut. Experimenting our hair with hacks, products, stylings to achieve our dream hair looks.
Seeing our hair healthy and shiny makes us super happy, obviously. But just a little problem can also be a cause of stress. It could be a wrong haircut, hairfall, split ends, or the presence of dandruff which does a lot of damage. And you know me, I’m all about self-care and de-stressing yourself.
Since the Winters are around the corner, along with all its charm and beauty it also brings some dandruff and dryness. With the arrival of winters, dandruff becomes the elephant in the room. Sometimes it can give you bad hair days too. Every year the hair products companies start advertising expensive products that are ready to dig a hole in your wallet. Sounds worrisome, right? But you don’t have to worry at all if you know how to keep them with great care.
Today I will talk about what kind of minor mistakes lead to these white flakes in your beloved hair and how it is possible to get rid of them.
Here are a few causes of dandruff which, if taken care of, can be controlled and affect your hair health drastically:
Not brushing regularly:
Not brushing your hair regularly can lead to dandruff buildup in your hair and scalp. While brushing your hair regularly helps increase blood circulation which in turn makes your scalp healthier. And remember, a healthier scalp leads to shinier hair and a scalp free of flakes.
Excessive use of a hairdryer:
Hair Dryers have become a necessity of the day for many. Especially in winters, hair dryers help dry wet hair and prevent us from catching a cold. What we actually forget is that heat when used in excess acts as an enemy for the scalp. Towel-drying or better drying your hair with a cloth will save your scalp from excessive heat and let them stay moist.
Dehydration has never been a healthy sign for our bodies. We often forget drinking water in winters but you need to love yourself enough to keep your body hydrated. Drinking water regularly plays wonders to your skin, scalp, and eventually your dear hair. All you have to do is to keep yourself hydrated and your hair and body will thank you for it.
A diet that lacks vitamins B, Vitamin E, Omega3, or zinc is an unfriendly diet for your hair. With such diets, smooth and stunning hair is just very difficult to happen. You need to pay more attention to your diet and give your body the nutrients it needs.
Stressing aggravates the chemical imbalance in your body which in turn affects your health in every possible manner. From dark circles and headaches to hair loss and dried out flaky scalps, stress is behind everything. Winters make us even lazier and too gloomy to work on ourselves. But if you find enough energy to show yourself a pinch of self-love to work out your stress with various techniques, you can lead a healthier life with healthier hair.
Let me discuss a few home remedies that you might want to keep in your diaries for good. You’ll be chuffed to bits to know that your kitchen is your earnest savior. All you have to do is pick the right ingredient. It won’t even break a bank if you put one egg in your hair mask instead of your cheese omelet.
Honey and Lemon Mask:
Honey and lemon are one of the perfect duets to ever exist for your hair crisis. Lemon gets unbelievably strong cleansing effects while honey is a humectant.

Yogurt is one of the most ancient home remedies. Its availability is not so rare in our households. Sneak into your kitchen and take out a quarter a cup of yogurt.
