The cool winter air is extremely dry, making it more difficult to maintain healthy, moisturized hair. Even on the healthiest heads of hair, winter can do a number, so it is important to take precautionary steps to give your hair the best chance at staying hydrated through the winter season.
Most importantly, do moisturize your hair. Dryness is inevitable during the winter and can cause your hair to become brittle which leads to breakage. Using the Keranique Deep Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner is one way to combat the dryness. Not only will the Deep Hydration Scalp Stimulating Shampoo nourish and rejuvenate the hair follicles, but it will help reduce flaking of the scalp. The Deep Hydration Volumizing Conditioner works to thicken and pump up your thin, flat hair.
If hats are your thing during the winter, great! If they aren’t, try to learn to like them or utilize other techniques such as wrapping a scarf around your head. The dry winter wind can do real, unwanted damage to your hair. Protect it with some type of headwear to keep your hair looking and feeling healthy.
Hair should never be washed every day, especially during the winter. Washing your hair can dry it out more and strip the strands of essential nutrients and oils. The natural oils will benefit your hair during the winter and help decrease the frizz and dryness. When washing your hair, try and use lukewarm water rather than scalding hot water, this will help preserve some of those vital nutrients as well.
Other things you should avoid are going outside with wet hair and even combing your hair while it is wet. If you absolutely have to blow dry or straighten your hair, be sure to use heat protectant.
