Many people notice that their hair seems to become weaker during the winter weather. This is because it is often put through extreme temperature changes on a regular basis that actually cause it to become weak and brittle. Fortunately, there are things that you can do to reduce the amount of damage that is done to your hair this winter.
Deep Condition Your Hair At Least Once Per Week
The first thing you need to do is keep your hair and scalp well hydrated. A great way to do this is to do a deep conditioning treatment on your hair at least once per week during the winter. A deep conditioning treatment can be purchased in any beauty supply store and can be applied within a matter of just a few minutes. Leave the conditioner on your hair for thirty minutes to an hour and then rinse it from your hair. This should keep your scalp from drying out and keep your hair supple and smooth.
Dry Your Hair Before Leaving Your House
Leaving the house during the winter with wet hair isn’t a good idea. Going into extremely cold conditions with wet hair can cause the hair to freeze and possibly break off or cause split ends. It’s best to dry your hair with cool air inside your home before you head out for the day.
Use a Humidifier in Your Home
Another cause of damage to hair is the dryness of the air when the heat is running inside of homes and businesses. Purchase a humidifier to use in your home to restore moisture in the air. This ensures that your hair always has the moisture that it needs to cut down on the brittleness and split ends.
If you want to make sure that your hair stays as healthy as it can during winter, be sure to still drink plenty of water even though the temperatures are low. Consider only washing your hair a few times per week to allow the natural oils to keep the hair hydrated and the scalp healthy. If your hair becomes greasy, you could safely use dry shampoo to give it a freshly cleaned look.
