Just as much as your hair needs protection from the scorching heat, it also needs to be protected from the freezing cold. The elements of winter can give the hair a good battering so you should start finding out ways to keep it protected. Below are some hair care tips that will help keep your hair healthy and beautiful all winter long.
How to Protect Your Hair from Winter
Winter Hair Care Tip # 1: Wear a Hat.
The simplest way to protect your hair from the elements of winter is by wearing a hat whenever you are outdoors. The hat will protect your hair from the wind, rain, and snow. But of course, the downside of this is ending up having a “hat hair”. No woman wants to wear the dreaded “hat hair” all winter long. Of course, there is a simple solution to this. Before you put on your hat wrap your hair in a silk scarf. This will prevent your hat from rubbing against your hair plus it cuts down static which can result to frizz.
Winter Hair Care Tip # 2: Deep Condition Once a Week
During the colder months, a once a week deep conditioning should be in order. Dry heat in your home and the cold winter air outdoors rob your hair of moisture which is why dry hair is a common problem during this season. To replenish lost moisture, treat your hair to a deep conditioning at least once a week. A great hair care product to use is the Argan oil as it comes loaded with nutrients that lock in moisture such as Vitamin E, essential fatty acids, and sterols.
Winter Hair Care Tip # 3: Wash Your Hair Less Often
Keep washing your hair at a minimum, around 2 to 3 times a week only, to prevent your locks from drying out further. And see to it that you’ve completely dried your hair before heading outdoors. Not only will this help you avoid catching a cold but if you head outdoors with wet or damp hair, you can end up with an icy hair thanks to the freezing temperatures. This can result to brittle and dry hair. You would not want wearing such a hairdo all winter long.
Winter Hair Care Tip # 4: Have Regular Trims
Having regular trims is one of the simple things you can do to keep your hair healthy and beautiful all winter season. About every 6 to 8 weeks, have your hair ends trimmed to avoid getting dry, splitting ends.
Winter Hair Care Tip # 5: Use a Humidifier
You are reading this right! A humidifier can help keep your hair healthy and beautiful all winter long. But wait? Doesn’t a humidifier gives humidity and humidity means frizzy hair? Not during the winter season! How so? Remember that your heater is turned on all day and all night long during the winter season and this makes the air in your home very dry which in turn makes your hair and skin dry out. Having a humidifier at home solves this problem!
