Posted on December 12, 2015
Winter months bring harsh and extreme weather conditions that can really dry out your hair. Add to that static cling, and central heat in your place of work and your hair can really take a beating.
We have come up with some great ideas to keep your hair moisturized and silky all winter long. We think your hair will agree these are pretty good!
- Extend times in between Shampoos: Shampoos and hot showers can really dry out your hair, but if you have a gentle dry shampoo that can help you extend time in between washes, your hair will thank you and you will see an improvement in moisture as well as less breakage.
- Coconut Oil Mask at Night: This is as simple as buying regular organic coconut oil and applying it 3-4 times a week. You will need to wash your hair well in the morning and consider using old pillow cases from that you won’t mind tossing after a while. The molecular structure of coconut oil allows it to penetrate much better than other oils can.
- Do a monthly deep condition: Let’s face it, sometimes you just need to go for the big guns and give your tresses a deep condition. Make this a monthly habit and you will protect your hair and prevent moisture loss. We have some wonderful deep condition options, ask for additional time when you schedule your next cut and color.
- Sesame Oil Masque: This oil is nutrient an emollient rich and can really protect the outer layers of your hair. 2-3 teaspoons with grated ginger and massage into your scalp. Wrap your head with a warm towel and let it absorb for 15 minutes. Follow us with a shampoo and your hair will shine!
- Consume your fats: make sure you are eating your healthy fats such as avocado, almond butter, etc. When you are moisturized from the inside out and well nourished, your hair is a reflection of that.
