I think everyone can agree that we’re all ready for spring! Bring on the sunshine! But for now we’re still battling the cold, wet, windy weather. Winter weather can wreak havoc on your hair. During the winter months, many people have dry, dull, brittle, or hair. The tips below will help you keep your hair more healthy during winter months.
Do not shampoo your hair too often. One of the most common mistakes people make is shampooing their hair too often. In cold weather, both the hair and scalp dry out more easily. Try not to shampoo your hair more than once a day.
Use the right type of products. The type of products you use on your hair will make a big difference in the overall health of your hair. Ask your hair stylist which type of product is best for your hair type.
Dealing with Static. An easy way to combat static is to spray a small amount of hair spray on your hairbrush when you are done styling and brush it through from top to bottom.
Do not overuse your hairdryer. Overusing your hairdryer will contribute to dry damaged hair. Try to blow dry your hair as little as possible. When you use your hairdryer, try using the ‘cool’ setting. Drying your hair with cool air may take a little longer but it will do less damage to your hair.
How to treat dry and brittle hair. A leave-in conditioner will work wonders for dry and brittle hair.
Wear a scarf, hat or cap to protect your hair from the cold and wind. Make sure the scarf, hat or cap is not so tight that it will restrict circulation in your scalp. Wear caps with care. Continually wearing hats can lead to overworked sebaceous glands, resulting in limp, greasy locks.
Lock in hair moisture by running your hair through cold water.
Limit your use of curling irons and other hot styling tools.
Shampoo your hair in warm or cool water.
