How to tackle frizz and a flaky scalp this season

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

How to tackle frizz and a flaky scalp this season

The cooler months are here and with them, so is drier air! This calls for a change in not only our skincare routines but also our haircare routine. Lowered moisture content in the surroundings can cause your strands to feel dry and brittle. To ensure the upkeep of your mane health, we recommend you tweak your haircare routine to avoid issues like hair fall, dry scalp, flakiness and itching. To make it simpler, we’ve curated a winter haircare guide that will keep your tresses feeling healthy and looking lush.

1. Avoid using dry shampoo

As the temperatures drop, sticking to your regular hair wash routine seems like an impossible task. And while we all reach out to our favourite dry shampoos to postpone wash day by just a little, they can be what causes scalp buildup and clogs your hair pores and follicles.  

What to do: In case of scalp buildup and clogged pores, consider using a scalp brush/massager or opt for a scalp scrub. These may help in clarifying your scalp and will boost circulation to your scalp.

2. Use more hair masks

During winter, there is a lack of moisture in the air, and low humidity levels can make your hair dry, dull and brittle. To add extra moisture to your locks and restore their lustre, make sure to use a nourishing conditioner.

What to do: Invest in high-quality hair masks that restore shine and moisture. These formulas not only restore any lost moisture but also target other dryness caused concerns, offering the best of both worlds in a single product. If you have fine hair, opt for a leave-in conditioner for an extra dose of moisture that does not weigh your hair down.

3. Milk Shake Leave In Conditioner

3. Invest in an anti-dandruff shampoo

Dandruff becomes a major hair concern during winter. The sudden change in temperature and hair washing frequency can disrupt scalp sebum production, leading to dryness, dandruff and a flaky scalp.  

What to do: Incorporate scalp serums or pre-wash treatments in your routine to control dandruff and flakes. Hot oil massages are also essential to compensate for the lack of moisture and natural oils in your hair.

4. Wash your hair with lukewarm water

Considering the temperature outside, the temptation to stand under a stream of hot water is understandable, but isn’t the best choice for your mane. Hot water can strip your hair of natural oils, making it even drier and more susceptible to dandruff and flakes. It also makes your hair frizzy and prone to breakage.

What to do: Opt for washing your hair with lukewarm water and invest in a hair serum that effectively combats frizz.

5. Limit heat styling

Heat styling can be an easy fix to add some volume and life to your hair, but excessive use of heat tools, especially in lower temperatures, can further damage your hair. Always use a heat protectant before styling to prevent your hair from becoming brittle and dull.

What to do: Ditch your heat tools and opt for protective hairstyles like braids and buns. Additionally, you can use heatless rollers and curlers to elevate your hairstyling game.

6. Choosing the wrong fabrics

Winter is the perfect time to ace cosy outfits with your favourite sweaters and beanies. However, woollen caps and hoodies can cause a lot of friction with your hair and increase frizz and hair breakage.

What to do: Opt for a silk scarf or beanies and caps lined with silk on the inside to protect your hair and reduce friction. Alternately, you can also use a nourishing, frizz taming serum to tame your strands.
