Nisha's Tips for Dry Winter Hair
Frizzy winter hair got you down? Check out Nisha's tips for fabulous hair.
Winter hair in Houston needs the same tender loving care as in summer months. The constant exposure to indoor heating and outdoor cooling ends up with hair losing essential moisturizing oils and becoming dry, frizzy & brittle.
To counter this, frequent & intensive conditioning is highly recommended. Conditioners that specifically target frizz and hydration are preferred. These products are designed to nourish the roots and provides moisture to the hair follicle and strand. Avoid blow drying hair when wet to prevent breakage. Running a brush through your hair with a few drops of Cold Pressed Virgin Olive Oil or Moroccan Oil before blow drying or after a shower also helps retain moisture to the locks and nourishes and strengthens the hair strand.
Use a hat to minimize exposure to cold air. Cold air plays havoc on hair and dries out the scalp. Take cooler and quicker showers to reduce dry scalp and hair. Massage the scalp with Vitamin E, Coconut Oil, or Olive Oil before shampooing with a dry scalp shampoo. These oils are a natural supplement and replenish scalp oils and and moisturize dry hair. A rinse with apple cider vinegar before shampooing can also help clear excess product buildup. Another alternative is to alternate between a shampoo and a conditioner rinse.
Chronic dry hair may need more frequent care in the winter months. If you notice dry flakes on your scalp, massage the scalp with conditioning oils and leave on for a few hours. Shampoo with a dandruff shampoo. You may need to experiment with different oils to see which gives the best results.
These small tips will help keep your hair looking strong, beautiful and shiny, in the dry winter months.
