Winter Hair Care
During the winter, and particularly a winter break, your hair will be exposed to damaging conditions, such as harsh, biting winds, and the drying effects of low temperatures and central heating. Central heating draws moisture from the hair and scalp, which causes static.
Extreme cold makes the hair brittle and dry and wet weather spells disaster for a style, making curly hair frizz and straight hair limp.
Hair Prevention Measures in Winter
These effects can be counteracted with a few simple measures.
- To reduce the drying effects of central heating, place large bowls of water near the radiators or use humidifiers.
- Use a more intensive conditioner on your hair in winter to combat dryness caused by cold.
- In damp weather, apply a mousse, gel, or hair spray, they are invaluable for keeping a style in place and giving some degree of protection.
