Hair is highly susceptible to cold, heat and pollution. It is also easily damaged if exposed to too much treatment, chemicals, dyes or pressure. Sometimes, even our mental health can affect hair growth and health. The cold dry winds of the winter can make hair become brittle and break.
Many people develop dandruff during winters because of the cold combined with hot water used for washing hair. Hair care products are always in demand because hair is a very fragile part of our bodies. You should also be looking for proactive products for your hair because these will help to maintain the health of your hair while reparing any damage that has been caused previously.
Caring for the hair is important regardless of the weather or time of year. Winters can be as hard on the hair as on the rest of our body. It is important to protect your hair form the extreme weather by using some kind of head covering. People usually wear warm wool caps or scarves during winters to keep themselves warm.
If you are one of those who don’t, you should certainly invest in this because it will not only keep you warm but also protect those precious locks from freezing. However, be careful about this because a scarf tied too tight could block blood circulation to the scalp and actually add problems instead of reducing them.
While we are talking about freezing, remember never to go out with wet hair. If you live in an area that suffers from extreme cold weather, wet hair could mean frozen hair. When hair freeze, they become hard and vulnerable to breaking. The simple act of taking off your cap could lead to hundreds of frozen hair just snapping off. This act of breaking can also lead to split ends and therefore, more hair damage.
Most brands produce special hair care products for the winter season. Recognizing that hair care needs for summers and winters are not the same, you should consider changing your shampoo and conditioner.
