Winter is here. That means that along with the blustery, freezing winds and frozen precipitation—or however you experience winter, comes a significant decrease in a very essential and important element called moisture!
This reduction is the life-giving substance, literally, within the air. Sadly, this seasonal low begins to make its annual debut on our outward appearance. Working from the inside out.
Aside from this front row seat to watching our hands and feet dry and wither away, this malnourishment also shows its disapproval of the seasonal forecast in the lovely tresses adorning our craniums…Yes, even your hair is a victim of this wintry tragedy.
So here are some winter hair care tips to counteract the parching effects of the winter blues.
- Ditch the Shampoo and Condition, Condition, Condition!
Every other time you wash your hair, just skip the shampoo. Funny thing about our guy, Shammy, he washes your hair by stripping your scalp and roots of all the natural oils that help provide nourishment and moisture to your precious locks. Do your hair a favor for at least a quarter of the year, and shampoo less.
The thing about having a hair type with the least amount of texture is it also tends to be the most fragile, brittle, and prone to the damaging effects of the elements. That said, the best thing for all you straight tubers is to go to town on the conditioner.
