4. Winter calls for the problem of dandruff. To combat it use homemade methods like applying lemon juice to hair and then massaging it with hot oil. Then wash it with a good quality shampoo.
5. Hot baths may sound tempting but avoid using hot water on your hair as it will make them limp and prone to breakage. Use lukewarm water instead of a hair wash.

6. Don’t shampoo your hair daily as it can take a toll on your silky hair. Limit it to twice a week in order to maintain the health and moisture of the hair.
7. Dying your hair is a strict no as it further dries hair and affects its texture so avoid it at least in winters. You can instead opt for hair extensions of dyed hair, ombre hair, fusion hair which will compliment your look without the damage.

8. If you use henna powder, it might be drying for your hair so add yogurt or egg to it. This will not strip the moisture from hair.
9. Let your hair dry naturally after washing. Don’t wrap a towel as it makes the hair shaft weak and easy to break.
10. Don’t brush your hair often. Use a wide-toothed comb to detangle hair and keep it tied in a bun or a ponytail. Also, comb your hair before wash.
