Make You Winter Hair Care Plan

Posted by Kanu on 3/1/2014 to Hair Healthcare

Each season has its up and down sides, and itís no different with winter. Sure, it can get cold, the traffic jams may be more frequent and thereís much less sunlight, but then thereís the priceless feeling of being warm and cozy at home while itís cold outside, the fact that everything looks so much better under a nice layer of snow, and all the hats and gloves and scarves and boots you canít wear during other seasons.

Your hair, on the other hand, has to deal only with the downsides during the winter. The hats you like to wear can damage it, and so can the cold and the wind if you donít wear a hat. The warm and cozy atmosphere inside can also affect your hair in a bad way by making it dry. Luckily, there are some things you can do to make the season go easier on your hair.

Letís start with the hats. Not wearing them will cause more harm than good, but you need to consider a few things when choosing your hat so that it doesnít damage your hair. Woolen hats are great and warm, but when in contact with your hair they will produce static electricity and damage your hair. To prevent this from happening, pick a more loose-fitting hat. It wonít interfere with the circulation in your scalp and it will leave more room for your hair. You should also consider wearing a silk scarf underneath the hat, as it will remove the friction between your hair and the hat, and help reduce the static electricity.

Indoor heating causes the air inside to become dry, which in turn causes your skin and hair to become dry as well. Keeping the level of humidity of your living space optimal is not a hard thing to do, humidifiers are easy to find and they donít have to be too expensive. Still, they are only one part of the plan to keep your hair from becoming dry during the winter.

Having really hot baths may seem especially appealing during winter, but itís not good for your skin and hair, so theyíre best to be avoided. Warm baths will have to do. Also, you should try not to wash your hair too often, as this will also make it dry. Not that you should give up on washing your hair completely, but try to keep it at two or three times a week. Donít forget to condition your hair after every shampooing. You should avoid blow-drying your hair as much as possible, but not at the expense of your health Ė itís still better to blow-dry than go out with wet hair during winter. The same goes for curling irons, but since they donít have any health-related implications, you can pretty much avoid them completely.

Trimming your hair regularly during winter will help keep it healthy, so plan at least two or three trims for the season. Also, you should adopt the habit of giving your hair a deep conditioning treatment once in a week or two. It will provide it with moisture and nutrients, and it will be a great addition to your winter hair-care plan.†
