This is the part of the year that ALL hair seems to not like, well we don’t like it for our hair! When seasons change your hair kind of has a built in mechanism to change as well. It either dries itself out or moisturizes itself. It’s about helping your hair and preparing for the season before it happens.
This is The Hair Hotline's Four Tips to Help You Keep Your Hair in the Best Shape for the Winter Months:
1. Treat your hair the way you do your skin in the winter…keep it moisturized! During the winter months it is imperative that you keep your ends trimmed and get deep conditioning treatments at least every 2-3 weeks. If you have color-treated hair you should try for every 2 weeks.
2. Wool is one of the worst fabrics that you could ever wear on your hair! Wool coats, hats and scarves should be avoided! If you decide to wear them ensure your ends are protected, wear a silk or satin scarf around your ends to avoid breakage. Silk and/ or satin will help keep all natural oils and shine enhancers on your hair and not your coat!
3. Jojoba Oil is the oil that is closest to the natural oils secreted by the skin. Jojoba oil can be added into shampoo, conditioner, lotion and other products to keep your hair and skin soft and moisturized during the winter months. Jojoba oil can also be used as a hot oil treatment.
4. When combing your hair begin at the ends and work your way towards your scalp. It prevents the hair from tangling further and also helps you save your hair from being pulled out from the scalp.
