Caring for hair through the seasons can be challenging. Just when it seems like you’ve gotten into a solid rhythm, the weather changes and you have to start over with your hair care routine.
The winter months can be especially challenging for naturals. The materials worn in the winter (wool and other scratchy fabrics), the freezing temperatures, the dry air from heaters, and the constant changes in humidity (to say nothing of rain and snow) can all affect the way our hair feels and looks.
Here are a few ways you can protect your hair this winter so it stays soft, supple, and frizz-free.
Moisturize: In the world of real estate, it’s all about location, location, location. When it comes to keeping your hair healthy in the winter, it’s moisture, moisture, moisture. Cold weather often comes with wind, which can dry out our hair. Add heaters inside every building and your hair can become brittle very quickly. Moisturized hair can fight the battle of the brittle much better than already dry hair. To keep your hair hydrated at all times, use a deep conditioner like Nourish Treatment and a leave-in moisturizer like Enrich Moisturizer. However many times you add moisture to your hair in the summer, plan to double that in the winter.
