Winter weather varies depending on where in the world you live. Winter in Florida is much different than winter in Minnesota. Just ask a college student planning their spring breaks. There’s a reason northern state dwellers choose Florida as a destination. Winter is often still rearing its chilly head through April and sometimes even May.
Do you live in an area where winter weather comes down hard? If so, you’re probably pretty familiar with the toll it takes on your skin. The cold air dries your skin and chaps your lips, often making them crack and bleed. Your skin requires special treatment in icy winter weather.
You probably know winter weather is also harsh on your hair, and not just fine hair is vulnerable. Thick hair, curly, straight or fine—all hair textures and types are affected by winter weather. And just like your skin, your hair needs protection from the cold so it remains healthy and soft.
Never fear. All is not lost! There are things you can do to protect your hair from brutal, whipping winds, dryness and static electricity caused by indoor heat. The winter hair care tips below will help keep your lovely locks healthy and beautiful, even when it’s freezing outside, so you can show your hair off when spring arrives.
Wear a Hat
Hats are fun and trendy year round. Whether casual or royal wedding fancy they top off an ensemble perfectly. During winter, hats are more than just accessories.
This is not the time to worry about hat hair. It’s important to cover your hair during the winter months to protect it from moisture-sucking dry air, rain, snow, and wind. The elements dry your hair out, and dry hair is more prone to breakage.
Not just any hat will do. Be sure your hat is lined with silk or satin to help prevent damage. Certain fabrics, such as wool and cotton, can cause breakage as well. What about static electricity? Have you ever noticed it when you take your hat off? You can fight static electricity under your hat by using a dry oil spray. Dry oils are weightless and contain natural oils that moisturize hair.
Use a Humidifier Indoors
A hat helps a lot outdoors but what about indoors? Indoor heat and heat from your fireplace can dry your hair, but there is a way to fight back. Use a humidifier. Indoor heat causes indoor air to become very dry. It easily pulls the moisture right out of your hair. Humidifiers help rehydrate the air and in doing so, put moisture back into your hair. You’ll feel the difference. Your hair (and your skin) will thank you!
