While the Official First Day of Winter is still quite some time away. It is never too early to start Protecting your Hair from the Harsh and Chilling Cold of the ending months to 2017. Our Healthy Winter Hair Blog hopefully helps give each of you some ideas on how to Help Care for your Hair in the Colder Months.
Before you head out dressed to the nines in your fall and winter apparel, enjoying the sweater weather, all worries whisked away by the winter wind, think about the breeze that is swaying your hair. What is it doing to your hair health? What is it taking away? The winter winds are notorious for taking away moisture from exposed parts of your body, and while the cracks in our skins may take up first priority, we are also sacrificing the moisture that keeps your hair looking smooth and silky, with that natural bounce that you spend all year tending to, do not forget your hair now.
Do not just go ahead and let the winter take a swing at your hair. Protect it against Mother Nature. Wearing a winter hat or an adorable beanie will not only complete your winter look, but it will also play the double role of saving the moisture in your hair too.
There is, of course, still the problem of your sweat and static build up. There are a couple of solutions you can try out for that. You could wrap your hair in a silk scarf before putting on the beanie to reduce the static created. You could even switch out wool for cotton headwear which is much less electric than its fired up pal, wool.
…with your conditioning. Your scalp no longer produces the essential oil you need to keep your hair well hydrated, so now it is up to you to simulate oil natural scalp oils. Treat yourself to a deep-conditioning session at least once a week to bring back some of that moisture lost. You could also comb some vitamin E through your hair to replace the natural scalp oils once produced to treat your scalp that may be irritated and full of static due to the lack of moisture. Using brushes with natural bristles also help spread oil produced in the scalp to the volume of your hair and are less conductive of static.
Cut It Short
A common practice most of us indulge in in the winter months is the practice of steaming showers that run for ages until we are soaked in the comfort of the heat. As tempting as they may be, remember they are the enemy of your hair. They are stripping away the little moisture your hair boasts and leave it dry and ruined. Cut down on the time you spend in the shower and dial down the heat levels. Showering with moderate-temperature water, if not cold, is the way to go when it comes to sporting healthy hair.
Don’t Throw Caution to the Wind
…and expose your wet hair to it, either. Do not leave the house with hair that is still wet post-shower. The moisture in your hair will collude with the cold air to leave your hair brittle and dry.
The Deal with Artificial Heating
The air indoors becomes welcoming and warm with artificial heating, but it also sneaks away with the moisture in your hair. So it may be alarming but we recommend a humidifier. It is reasonable to conjure up images of humidity and the inevitable frizz that comes with it, but in an environment that has even less moisture than the winter air due to artificial heating, a humidifier might just be your best friend. Invest in a humidifier to retain the moisture in your hair and skin without getting rid of the warm and cozy abode you have created for yourself.
Perhaps it is time to experiment with the all-natural look. Leave your hair wild, without the fancy blow-dry styling or the straightening or curling iron treatment. It is also time to try out the adorable headwear winter brings with itself. Perhaps it is also time for that trim you were considering, eliminating the split ends and strengthening your hair this winter. Let winter come, your hair will power through with all its glory.
