Subject: [naturalhair-35] Help for Winter Hair Woes


Is your hair feeling dryer than usual this winter season? Noticing more hair on your pillow, blouse or in your comb? The reason for this is that your hair is breaking off due to lack of moisture. When you hair obtains the moisture it needs for proper hydration, your hair will become more supple and pliable which minimizes breakage.

The culprit in the winter for our hair woes is steady plummeting temperatures causing your heaters to staying on longer, which in turn evaporate moisture needed for your hair. This situation is worsened when heavy oils or grease is applied to your scalp and hair, further blocking vital moisture.

There is hope to counteract this winter's rigid temperatures. Your hair would benefit from the use of extra moisturizing, less heavy products, low maintenance hair styling and regular trims to bring life back to dry, limp tresses.

First, after each shampoo, deep condition you hair with a hood dryer to allow the product to penetrate the cuticle, choosing a product rich in vitamins and protein. Then liberally apply a moisture retainer which will attract moisture to the hair to increase moisture levels. Next, massage the scalp to stimulate its own natural oils.

Then, choose a style that does not require a lot of management. Putting unnecessary tension on the hair during this time can cause unwanted stress. (Check out our style gallery for some styling ideas: Then get regular trims at least every three months to get rid of parched, split ends to give hair more bounce.

Lastly, increase your water intake. Eight cups per day is optimal, but drinking more than you have been will still be a benefit.

Follow these tips to keep hair healthy and you are almost sure to have the hair you want just in time for spring.
