With the crisp nip in the air, winter is the ideal time to toss your hair ties and hair clips aside, and let your luscious locks flow. But winter season also brings with it dryness and hair fall, leaving your hair looking lackluster. We at Salosa love your locks just as much as you do,we have five easy tips to make sure you let your hair down this winter.
As enticing as it may seem to get that added shine and bounce, washing your hair too often is very damaging to the roots of your hair. Shampoos remove the natural oils on the scalp leaving your scalp dry and your hair more prone to breakage. Use a mild shampoo and don’t forget to condition every time you shampoo.
The main cause of frizzy hair is lack of moisture. The cuticle layers on the strands of hair need moisture to make them smooth. You can place a few drops of Moroccan oil or olive oil on your hands and run your fingers through damp hair to ensure you lock in the moisture.
We all make sure our skin is well moisturized in the winter, but unfortunately we often forget that our scalp needs moisturizing too. During winter it’s a good idea to treat your hair at least once a week to a deep nourishing hair spa.
So take some time this winter to indulge in a warm oil head massage. This increases blood flow to the hair follicles, conditions the scalp and strengthens the roots of the hair. A head message from a trained masseur also works wonders to relieve stress and anxiety. We don’t realize that the scalp becomes tight because of stress, this reduces its ability to absorb nutrients. A head massage not only detoxifies and relaxes your body, it leaves your hair healthy and well nourished.
The blast of warm air from a hairdryer might leave you feeling nice and toasty, but blow drying your hair does a whole lot of damage. It causes a "flash drying" effect, along with removing the water that is bound to the hair, leaving the cuticles dry and brittle, leading to breakage. After a shower, dry your hair naturally or pat dry it. If you really do need to use a hair dryer, use the low heat option and try using a leave in conditioner containing glycerin and propylene glycol before drying your hair. This reduces water evaporation while giving you the perfect look you want for the day.
The change in climate can have some of the most damaging effects on your hair, to protect your hair from the cold dry wind make sure when you step out you use a scarf or a hat to guard your hair from the extreme weather.
