9 Ways to Keep Hair Hydrated During Winter
Dry hair is a common problem during the winter months. The air is drier, even in South Florida, a place known for high humidity levels.
Hot water is not good for your hair. It opens hair cuticles, damages the natural keratin in strands, and disrupts the bound lipids of your hair’s cell wall. The cooler the water temperature, the better it is for hair as it closes cuticles.
Styling tools that use heat are a major source of hair drying and damage. Limit the use of styling tools. If you must use them, turn down the heat and use a protectant before drying.
Use a conditioner appropriate for your hair type and one that’s specifically designed to moisturize.
Pamper your locks with a light weight oil treatment. It will work wonders to refresh and rejuvenate your mane. Consider a deep conditioning treatment and/or a hair mask once a week.
Dry Hair Thoroughly
Don’t leave home if your hair is wet, as it’s more susceptible to damage. Wet hair is a magnet for dry air.
Split ends are common during the winter months. Regular trims eliminate split ends that can result in further damage.
Drinking enough water is essential for your body and critical for your hair. Without proper hydration, hair shafts can become brittle, lose strength and strands break easily. Lack of sufficient hydration can result in slow hair growth, hair that stops growing, and even accelerated hair loss.
Humidify Your Environment
You can’t do anything about dry conditions in offices and stores, but you can treat your locks to a humidified home environment. Buy a good humidifier and use it.
Wear a Hat
A head covering aids in protecting hair from dry air and wind that can rob it of moisture. Coverings of silk or satin are best. Fabrics such as cotton or wool rubs against strands and creates friction that can result in damage.
