Solutions for Winter Hair Woes

We often think of the summer months as being extremely harsh on our tresses–salt water, sunlight, chlorine, and humidity are destructive to our locks, but winter is equally damaging. As colder months approach, our scalp beings to flake, our hair loses liveliness and luster, our strands break, we experience perpetual hat-head, and static tries to stop us.

At Ultimate Hair Dynamics, we have squashed those winter hair woes with five solutions for healthy, radiant hair, just in time for holiday photo ops!

  • Because of the lack of humidity, scalps tend to become dry and flaky during winter months. Try adding a few drops of tea tree oil to your shampoo, and use as normal. Tea tree oil has natural properties that make it an effective treatment for many ailments, including dandruff.
  • To restore bounce and shine to your tresses, try an apple cider vinegar rinse. Add one part raw, organic apple cider vinegar with one part warm, filtered water into a spray bottle. Spritz all over your hair, leave in for about two minutes, and rinse. The result is revitalized, shiny, happy hair.
  • To prevent breakage, make sure to apply a deep conditioning treatment to your hair once a week. For ultimate moisture, use a plastic shower cap and heat to trap in moisture.
  • Cold weather is synonymous with hat season. To keep your locks looking good when you get to your destination, try wrapping your hair in a silk scarf before donning that chapeau. This protects your hair from the elements, adds another layer of warmth, and further protects your hair from friction caused by the hat.
  • To combat static, make sure your hair is moisturized—use a leave-in conditioner or hair oil. It’s also helpful to crank up your humidifier, which will add moisture to your environment, preventing static from cramping your style.

Following these tips will ensure your winter months are filled with great hair days.
