But scalding water, zaps away all the moisture from your hair, making them vulnerable to breakage. Try having a shower with lukewarm water instead; and don’t forget to use cool water for a final rinse.
• Avoid hot styling products tools
Using a warm hair dryer is such a lifesaver during the frigid winter months. But using any heated styling tools like a blow-dryer, hair iron or hair curlers leads to high moisture loss, resulting in frizz and static induced frayed hair.
