Cold weather, dry air and harsh winds can wreck havoc on hair, particularly if you have dry hair to begin with. While you can’t control the weather, there are some things you may be doing that cause damage. And while some are obvious, you may be surprised by others.

Here are the few tips on how to reduce / minimize damage and keeps hair healthy looking all year long.


  • Frequent Washing hair: It’s a cause of your hair damage.
  • Brushing Wet Hair: Wet hair is more elastic and more likely to break. Even brushing dry hair excessively is damaging since brushes and combs can snap or break hair.
  • Towel Drying: rubbing hair with a towel can rough up the cuticle (outer layer of the hair), causing it to look frizzy or fluffy and potentially lead to more breakage.
  • Blow drying causes a “flash drying” effect that not only removes the surface moisture but also removes water that is bound to the hair.
  • Flat Irons/Curling Irons: This type of appliances can damage your hair in a different way than blow dryers.


(Hair is a protein filament that grows from follicles found in the dermis, or skin. Hair is one of the defining characteristics of mammals. The human body, apart from areas of glabrous skin, is covered in follicles which produce thick terminal and fine vellus hair. Most common interest in hair is focused on hair growth, hair types and hair care, but hair is also an important biomaterial primarily composed of protein, notably keratin. Attitudes towards hair, such as hairstyles and hair removal, vary widely across different cultures and historical periods, but it is often used to indicate a person’s personal beliefs or social position, such as their age, gender, or religion.)
