The winter season does not wear well on hair, whether you are outdoors in the wet and cold or in dry heat indoors, this season can deplete and dull your hair. With dry indoor heat, hair becomes brittle. Exposure to harsh winter conditions outdoors causes damage that can be lasting. So, the core winter message here is look after your hair this winter to keep it looking strong and beautiful.
Make sure you keep hydrated. In winter we get in to the habit of not drinking as much water as we would in summer. Instead of taking a water bottle to work, why not bring a thermos with a nice green tea to keep you warm?
The key to keeping your hair strong in winter is keeping it moisturized. Using nourishing organic oils not only ensures minimal winter damage to hair, it helps keep the fires of health glowing all winter long! Use a fine, organic hair oil for taming wiry, unruly locks is a great idea.
Avoid long hot showers in winter. You may be tempted waking up in a cold bedroom to warm up with a nice hot shower, but this can strip your hair and skin of oils. The same with blow drying, avoid setting your dryer on its hottest setting.
Dress for the weather with warm hats and scarfs that protect your hair form long exposure to cold wet conditions.
Eat food with good fats such as fish, nuts and avocado, as well as vitamin C rich fruit and vegies to keep up your immune system and this will also keep your hair shiny and healthy.
