Winter is a wonderful time of year! Magical holiday atmosphere, winter activities like sledding and skating, hot coffee, and tea... However, our hair suffers in the winter season a lot. How can you tame your hair and make it obedient and soft again? Keep on reading in order to find out!
1. Remove static electricity. First of all, replace plastic brushes with silicone, carbon fiber, wooden, or ebonite ones with natural bristles (boar bristles are the best), or choose plastic options with an antistatic coating. Use thermal water as well! It will help quickly remove static electricity from your hair.
2. Choose the right hat. In the cold season, you should definitely wear hats in order to protect your hair. However, constant friction against a hat, scarf, or hood creates static electricity in the hair, increases sebum production, and weakens the protective properties of the hair. Choose hat models made from natural wool and cashmere. Avoid synthetic fabrics.
3. Take care of the scalp. Beautiful and good-looking hair starts with scalp health. In winter the scalp needs special attention and protection. In the season of cold weather, we need a whole arsenal of moisturizing and nourishing products for the face. Don’t forget about your hair and scalp as well!
4. Don’t wash your hair too often. The cold season is a great opportunity to get a little bit lazy and wash your hair rarely than in summer. Firstly, this way you will protect your hair from overdrying (daily shampooing removes the natural sebum needed to moisturize your hair). Secondly, it reduces the risk of hypothermia of your scalp in the case if you didn’t manage to dry your hair before going out.
