Skin is not the only thing to become dry once colder weather arrives. Hair changes too.

Have you noticed flyaways, frizziness, limp strands? Get your tresses back to shiny and bouncy in no time with a the following DIY hair tricks.

Indian women employ the techniques of Ayurveda to keep their manes in top condition. Healthful oils are used to condition and protect the hair. Find out how to oil your hair the ayurvedic way.

One of my favorite ways to boost hydration and add body is with Avocado oil. Massage into scalp and work through ends of hair, then wrap in a warm towel or don a shower cap for 15 minutes. Shampoo as usual. Or try this avocado hair mask.

Another oil that works well here is olive oil. Actually, olive oil is a winter wonder for skin too. Use it as a hair conditioner, skin cleanser, body moisturizer, and cuticle treatment.

Essentials oils are also beneficial to hair. Check out this crash course on the 5 best essential oils for beautiful hair and how to use them.

To keep hair, skin and body moisturized and healthy all winter long be sure to include healthy fats in your diet. Ghee, olive oil, nuts, and seeds all provide good-for-you oils.
