Winter takes its toll on our bodies and our hair. The lack of humidity in the winter results in lanky, dry hair and dry scalp. When hair is limp it becomes frizzy and flaky. All kinds of unfortunate things tend to happen to hair during the winter months, which you are going to want to rehab before spring. If you go into winter with healthy hair you might have a fighting chance, but if it’s already color damaged or dry and brittle you are going to have a challenge on your hands getting it back up to snuff.
So how do you rehab winter hair? Here are some suggestions.
Quit washing your hair so much. However, if you have extremely oily hair and can’t do this then thoroughly drench your locks before you lather up with shampoo. Focus on washing the hair that is within two inches of your scalp because that’s where the oil or sebum collects. Rinse your hair with very cold water. Use products that are renewable, strengthening and anti-breakage items, which should help seal shut split ends and thicken your hair in the process.
At Home Treatment for Dry Scalp
Give yourself an at home treatment which will help moisturize your scalp, which has become dry during the winter. This is the first step in rehabbing winter hair. The items you will need include three teaspoons of extra virgin cold-pressed olive oil; four tablespoons of whole milk sour cream and one avocado that has been pitted and mashed.
Put the items into a blender and puree until smooth. Wet your hair and then apply the mixture, rubbing it into your scalp with your fingers. Comb your hair with a fine-toothed comb so that the mixture is distributed evenly. Wrap a warm towel or plastic shower cap around your head and leave the avocado mix in your hair for 20 minutes. Rinse your hair and then shampoo.
