Winter can wreak havoc on virtually every part of your body. Not only are you typically eating more than usual, but your skin, nails, and hair are also getting damaged by the dryness in the air. If you are noticing that your hair is more dry and brittle than normal, it’s probably due to the cold weather and harsh winter winds. To help revitalize your hair and get it back to the healthy state it once was in, try these tips.
- Coconut Oil
Coconut oil can do wonders for your hair and skin— moisturizing it in ways you never knew possible. By helping to trap moisture into your hair, coconut oil will help to moisturize your dry ends and hopefully get your hair back to normal. Simply take a small amount of coconut oil and comb it through damp hair— focusing on the ends and avoiding your scalp. Leave the moisture on your hair for about 20 minutes. Shampoo and condition the coconut oil out of your hair. Repeat this process about twice a week.
- Avoid the Heat
Nobody likes to go outside on a cold day with wet hair, but your hair hates being treated with heat tools like a blow dryer, curling iron, and hair straightener even more. To avoid having to use a hair dryer, try washing your hair at night and letting it air dry— that way you don’t have to go outside with wet hair and you’re still protecting your hair from that unwanted and detrimental heat.
- Wash Every Other Day
Dry shampoos have made it big over the past couple of years— giving people the ability to only wash their hair a few times a week without looking greasy and unkempt. Because shampoos strip your hair of its natural oils, they can also cause your hair to dry out and become brittle. However, by washing your hair every two to three days, you can help to protect your hair from further damage caused by shampoo.
