The winter season is here and that means dry, brittle hair. It’s a common issue in the cold months because of the lack of moisture in the air. Even if your hair is used to being in cold weather it can be hard to combat this dryness. You may need to change your shampoo or conditioner, try a deep conditioning mask, or add oils to keep your locks shiny and moisturized.
Here are some ways you can treat dry hair during the wintertime.
Change your shampoo
We all have a certain shampoo and conditioner we’ve been using for years. But if you’re experiencing dry hair, it may be time to switch things up. In the winter, your hair is more prone to static electricity that can make it difficult for moisture to travel from the roots of your hair to the ends. A good way to combat this is by switching shampoos and conditioners. If you’re having problems with static electricity, try a sulfate-free shampoo or conditioner. It’s a natural ingredient that will remove residue from your hair and scalp while still being gentle enough for sensitive skin.
Try a deep conditioning mask
One way to keep your hair moisturized is through a deep conditioning mask. A deep conditioning mask can help you get all the moisture back into your hair. This type of mask works best if you have time to let it sit in your hair for a little while before rinsing it off.
It’s best to apply a deep conditioning mask one or two times a week, as well as use a regular conditioner in between those masks. If you want, you can mix up your shampoo and conditioner with an oil like olive or coconut oil for extra hydration.
Add oils to your hair
The first way you can treat dry hair during the winter is adding oils to your hair. Coconut oil will give your locks a healthy shine and leave them feeling silky. You can also use baby oil or olive oil.
Dry hair is a common problem during the winter, but there are some steps you can take to keep your hair healthy.
