Winter Hair Care

Houston hair salon for hair lossDry frizz, static electricity, dry scalp, product build up can all occur during the winter months.   Sometimes if not treated, “bad hair” days can last an entire season. Even if you live in a moderate climate it is important to take care of your hair during winter months.

Sun exposure even during the winter can damage your hair. Even on a ski slope your skin can be sunburned as well as your hair damaged. Indoor heating can be as damaging to the hair as a whole afternoon under a hair dryer.

Dry Hair
Some experts say that to remedy “winter hair” it is important to use a rich moisturizing conditioner with a few key ingredients. Fatty acids and humectants are best as moisturizing hair because they attract and hold moisture in the hair.

Flaky Scalp and Hair
Dry flaky hair is uncomfortable as well as possibly embarrassing with a flaky scalp. One step in preventing this is to take a cooler , quicker shower to reduce the scalps exposure to the drying effect of hot water. Also switching to a dandruff or dry scalp shampoo such as X-Derma or X-Folate from Mediceuticals will help. Before showering, massage the scalp with Vitamin E, olive or coconut oil for their moisturizing effects. If a fungal or bacterial infection ( dandruff) is present wash the scalp with tea tree oil daily to cure a dry itchy head naturally.

Product Build-up
Product build up may also occur causing the scalp to not be at its best during winter months. A quick wash with apple cider vinegar followed by a regular shampoo will rid the scalp of product buildup and promote a more healthy scalp during the winter months.
