Gurgaon residents feel the pinch more in water because hair and water quality are supposedly directly related. Gurgaon has hard water, and the usual complaint that the dermatologists get is brittle hair and hair fall.

Dryness occurs because cold air contains less moisture than warm air, making hair dry. It makes hair weak and brittle. To combat frizzy hair put the moisture back into the locks by keeping them nourished and looking after them a little more in the season. Here are quick recaps below:

Avoid brushing your hair vigorously.
Avoid frequent use of shampoo if you have dry hair.
Limit your use of blow dryers, curling irons, and straightening irons.
To detangle hair, use a wide teeth comb.
