Winterizing Your Hair Care
From hat hair to static electricity, split ends to dry frizz, when winter weather hits, a bad hair day can last an entire season. In fact, even if you live in a moderate climate, experts say you're still susceptible to hair-raising changes as the seasons pass.
3 ways to winterize your hair care:
Add a heavier oil:
Using a heavier oil, such as olive oil or even castor oil are great for locking in moisture over a long period of time and protecting the hair from the harsh elements of the winter season.
Add an essential oil or extract:
Essential oils such as tea tree, mint, and peppermint feel great against the scalp. You can add these to your favorite oil, shampoo, or conditioner to give your hair and scalp a bit of relief from the elements.
It’s very important to use a deep conditioner especially in the winter, as your hair is more prone to breakage and dryness due to the elements and also by the different scarves and hats you may adorn, which are made up of wool or some unfriendly hair fiber material.
The good news: No matter what's causing your winter hair woes, you can take both protective and replenishing steps to help repair it. Our stylists suggest regular use of a thick, rich, moisturizing conditioner with a few key ingredients every 1 to 2 weeks.
