Keeping Your Hair Healthy in the Winter

We prepare many things for the winter, like our homes, our car, but why not our hair? The winter months can be difficult for your hair. Your hair may become dehydrated and start to look brittle and dry. It is imperative to give your hair extra care in the winter to ensure that your hair stays happy and healthy. This post will highlight the best ways to prep your hair for the coming winter.

Five Ways to Prep Your Hair for Winter

1. Do not shampoo your hair every day in the winter.

The shampoo helps to remove product build-up, dirt, and grease from our scalps. It also strips your hair of its natural oils, which keep your hair soft and hydrated. Just shampoo your hair two times a week to keep your hair smooth when the weather is cold. If you are prone to an oily scalp, washing your hair two times a week will not work for you. Try supplementing by using dry shampoo on the days you go without washing your hair.

2. Make sure you are using a conditioner.

It would always be best to use a conditioner when washing your hair, especially during January, February, and March. The conditioner will add moisture to your hair. Consider using a leave-in conditioner to add an extra layer of moistness to your hair.

3. Avoid styling your hair with heat.

Try your best not to style your hair using a curling iron or straightening iron. Styling your hair with heat will dry it out. That is why it is best to let your hair dry naturally in the colder months.

4. Get your hair trimmed often.

Regular trims are essential for healthy hair. It might seem counterproductive to get your hair trimmed when trying to grow it out, although routine haircuts will actually help your hair grow faster. If you have long hair, cutting it every 2-3 months is ideal. A trim every 4-8 weeks will make your hair look healthy and silky for those who have shorter hair.

5. Stay hydrated by drinking a lot of water.

Yes, it would be best to drink three liters of water a day, even in the winter. If you aren't staying hydrated, your hair won't be hydrated either. Water increases hair growth, and without it your hair will begin to dry up and look brittle. Ensure you stay healthy and hydrated by drinking water; your hair will thank you for it.

Taking care of your hair in the winter is essential. Continue to keep your hair healthy in the winter to have those luxurious locks in the summertime. Wear a hat whenever you are outside during the colder days; this will add an extra layer of protection to your scalp and hair.
