Tips for winter hair care
Wears a hat
It is important to cover your hair during the winter months to protect it from dry air, snow, wind, and rain. Dry hair, becomes more prone to breakage.
Wool, cotton, and other fabrics can also cause breakage, so be sure to line the hat with silk or satin to help prevent damage. Combat frizz under your hat by using a hair oil. The Let Me Be oil is excellent for this, as it moisturizes the hair, bringing back its shine.
Buy a humidifier
Want to know a surprising way to combat dry hair in winter? Use a humidifier. Indoor heating makes the air in your house very dry, drawing moisture out of your hair. Humidifiers help rehydrate the air to keep your hair looking shiny.
Trim your hair regularly
Trimming your hair every four to eight weeks is a good way to keep your hair healthy and looking fresh. It takes half an inch off the ends to reduce dry, split ends.
Regulates water temperature when you take a bath
Even though a steam shower may be exactly what you’re looking for when the temperature is low, hot water can decrease the moisture in your hair, making it brittle and more vulnerable to breakage. Wash your hair with warm water and follow it with a cold rinse.
Avoid frequent hair washing
If you wash your hair every day, it’s time for a quick change. Washing your hair too much will strip it of natural oils that help keep your hair moisturized and protected. This is especially bad in winter, when these oils are much needed. Try to extend the time between washes as much as possible. If you normally wash your hair every day, then switch to every other day. If you find that your hair is still too dry, try it every three days.
Moderates the use of heat on the hair
It’s best to let your hair air dry. Blow-drying your hair removes moisture from your hair, increasing the likelihood of breakage. Heatless drying helps keep your hair shiny and healthy. Not much time? Try to take your shower at night so that your braids can dry naturally during the night. Embrace your natural hair and air dry your hair whenever possible. When your hair is already delicate in the colder months, heat styling amplifies the problem and sucks the moisture out of your strands.
Don’t leave the house with wet hair
Wet hair is more vulnerable to damage than dry hair. Walking outside in winter with a wet head can cause your hair to freeze and break. While air drying is better, it is better to blow dry your hair than to go outdoors with wet hair.
