Winter may have ended, but we are still dealing with the lasting effects on our hair and skin. Between the cold air and the dry heat circulating through your home, your hair has had the hardest time surviving the winter and you may be experiencing lack of moisture, breakage, and damaged ends.
Thankfully our hair is very resilient and damage to our beautiful locks is easily repaired with a little TLC. I have got some suggestions on how to reverse cold weather damage and reach your hair’s shiny, healthy potential.
Get a Trim : As recommended we should all get a trim every six weeks, but honestly who has time and who can remember. The first step to liven up dull winter hair is pay a visit to your stylist and trim those dead ends.
Do a DIY Hot Oil Treatment : Mix and match two tablespoons of any of the following oils: jojoba oil, almond oil, extra virgin castor oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, and olive oil. Mix them into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 15 second intervals until warm but not too hot, and apply from root to tip. Rev up the potency of a DIY oil mask by piling your saturated strands into an insulated shower cap or micro-fiber head wrap and blast it with a little heat on your blow dryer before rinsing and cleansing the oil away.
Incorporate a Supplement : Cold weather often present a problem of scalp dehydration and the under production of natural oil. If dryness is causing discomfort, itching, or dandruff, supplementing with Vitamin E is the extra boost that your body might need to combat the issue.
Check Your Labels and Consider a Product Update: Washing your hair frequently strips it of the natural moisture your body produces. Pay a little extra for all natural or at least higher quality products. Even the smallest change like swapping your standard pony tail holders for no-break options can make a huge difference.
Incorporate Damage Control Products into Your Daily Routine: Once you are on the road to recovery, it’s important to maintain your healthy locks. Use a high quality hair mask once a week .Your hair will look silky and smoothe, but also be getting the necessary oils and nourishment it needs they need.
Master No Heat Styling: You don’t need to completely abandon your iron, but try not to use it every day. Letting go of this part of your morning routine might take a lot of convincing, but in the end you’re doing your hair the biggest favor you possibly could do.
