Winter weather isn’t only harsh on homes and vehicles and landscapes, it can be harsh on hair as well.
During the dry winter months, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends spacing out chemical treatments longer than usual to help prevent damage to your hair.
How often you wash your hair in the winter should depend on how much oil is produced by your scalp; if your scalp and/or hair are oily, you may need to wash your hair more often to keep your scalp clean. No matter what, after washing your hair it is important to use a conditioner that is specific to your hair type to make your hair stronger. Conditioner will also help decrease static electricity in the dry winter months.
Take it easy when brushing your hair, especially if it’s wet. Use wide smooth prongs to stroke through your hair when it is damp, but not wet because hair is more fragile and delicate when it is wet.
Diet is also important to your hair’s health. If your diet restricts certain types of food or food groups, it may affect your hair. Supplements can help resolve this and replace nutrition that is missing. Iron, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, and Vitamin A are very important as well as an H vitamin which helps hair and nails.
If you feel that your hair is lacking the usual bounce and luster that it has during other times of the year, or if it seems like you may be experiencing more shedding than normal, the best thing to do is contact an expert who has been specifically trained in issues such as hair loss. The professionals at New England Associates® will perform a physical examination of your hair and scalp to identify the cause of any symptoms and help you review your options and solutions.
