Cover Your Head

However, another benefit of covering your head during winters is that it preserves the moisture by not letting the dry air or wind stealing the moisture.
Bonus Tip: You should use a hat with either silk or satin fabric inside, which will help prevent the damage to your hair that woollen or cotton hats may cause.
Lower the Temperature While Taking Shower : Well, having a steamy hot bath during the freezing winters is one of the best feelings we have during winters. While steamy shower gives us the best feeling in the world, it may damage your scalp and hair as well.
Therefore, it is important you do not take a bath with excessively hot water as it eradicates the moisture from our scalp. Once the moisture is gone, it makes the scalp vulnerable to breaking. Hence, you should wash your hair with lukewarm water instead of steamy hot water.
Dry Your Hair Before Leaving the House
It is extremely important that you do not leave the house until your hair is dry as the wet hair is more vulnerable. Therefore, make sure your head is dry whenever you go outside the house during winters.
When the moisture is low in the air, it is important that you preserve and restore the moisture via massaging your head with the hair oil. Oiling treatment rejuvenates the dry and damaged hair quite effectively. Nourish your hair on regular basis and preserve the moisture during winters.

Do Not Wash Hair Every Day

The reason being is that when we wash our hair, it eradicates the natural oil from the scalp, which we have used to keep our hair moisturized. And during the winters, natural oils are quite essential to provide our scalp with the required moisture. Therefore, it is important that you do not wash your hair on daily basis during the winter season.
