November is the transitional month from fall to winter, are you ready for it? Most are excited for snow, winter boots, hot chocolate and winter activities but others are dreading the long visit from Robert Frost. Your hair, in particular, needs to prepare for the cool temperatures and dry air while looking fresh and up-to-date. Strands get brittle, tangled and frizzy easily when exposed to the constant combination of hot and cold atmospheres. Here are some hair tips on how to keep your hair soft and healthy and the trending winter styles you must try!
Hair Saving Tips
– Wash hair every OTHER day – your hair can feel dry and rough during the colder months so you must retain the natural moisture produced by your hair by skipping the shampooing on alternating days. Even if your hair is naturally oily, by eliminating the heat and sweat from the summer months, chances are you won’t even need to wash your hair every day.
– Avoid blow drying – applying heat directly to your hair will only dry out the hair strands more, causing eventual breakage and split ends. However, if you need to head outside in the cold and you don’t have time to let your hair air dry, make sure to use a heat protector on your hair.
– Use brushes with natural bristles- Unlike brushes made with plastic bristles, brushes made with boar bristles help to redistribute the natural oils in the hair and on scalp more easily. They can also help to fight static.
– Stick to cotton hats – cotton material doesn’t create as much static as opposed to wool or acrylic.
– Use unscented dryer sheet to stop static- before you run out the door into the cold, rub an unscented dryer sheet (preferably bounce) on hair gently
– Check your products – While hairspray isn’t advised, if you end up using it make sure it doesn’t have a high alcohol content, alcohol will make your hair feel dry and stiff
– Stay Hydrated – drink lots of water and use a humidifier for hydrated hair and skin, with no static
