The cold doesn’t just chap your lips and give you shivers — it can also leave your hair feeling dry, stiff, and damaged. Good news: a little TLC goes a long way in making your hair and scalp look and feel healthy.
Let’s look at five easy hair care tips you need to follow this winter to keep your luscious locks looking Insta-worthy.
1. Wash Your Hair Less Frequently
Even though a steamy shower might be just what you’re looking for this winter, know that hot water can zap moisture from your hair. This makes your hair more brittle and prone to breaking.
Wash your hair less frequently in the winter to keep moisture locked in. And when you do wash it, keep it lukewarm.
2. Moisturize Your Scalp with Natural Oils
No, that’s not snow in your hair — it could be proof of a dry, flaky scalp. Using natural oils can keep your scalp moisturized to prevent dead skin and dandruff.
Our Bangin’ Hair Serum features cold-pressed oils and is 100% pure, unrefined, and fully divine. It’s rich in all the right places, with Omega 6 and Omega 9 fatty acids to give you back your natural shine and none of the rough, scratchy scalp that leaves your hair dull and lifeless.
For the full effect, we suggest oiling your scalp a few days before you plan to wash it.
3. Bundle Up (Your Hair, That Is)
Baby, it’s cold outside, and that means adding some extra layers from head to toe. Your hair needs the same love you give the rest of your body when it comes to bundling up. This helps you shield it from moisture-robbing snow, wind, and dry air.
4. Make Friends with Microfiber Towels and Humidifiers
Some fabrics, like microfiber, are kinder to your hair than others. Microfiber towels pull less on your strands, which can reduce frizzing. They’re also more absorbent, helping to dry the hair without heat and leaving your hair tangle-free.
Using a humidifier in your home adds moisture to the air, which will, in turn, nourish your hair’s health. It keeps your hair from drying out, which is the main culprit for frizz and split ends. A humidifier may also soften your locks and make your hair more manageable.
5. Take Supplements to Boost Your Immune System Health
April showers bring May flowers. Winter weather brings… flu season. Getting enough vitamins not only benefits your hair, but can also boost your immune system to ward off colds, the flu, and other illnesses. When your body is fighting sickness, it uses all available resources to make you feel well again, even if it means not sending nourishment to your hair. This can leave your hair looking as sick as you are!
Our line of vitamins boosts your immune system and promotes healthy skin and hair. Taking hair-specific vitamins along with increasing your intake of water and nutrient-rich foods (think carrots, pumpkins, vegetables, leafy greens, and foods with omega fatty acids) can help you keep your hair and body healthy and happy.
