Every other day is quite enough to wash your hair in winter. Weather conditions and central heating strips away essential oils. Always use a mild shampoo formulated for your hair type and a conditioner too. Maybe try a pre-wash conditioner or one which is formulated to leave for extra nourishment. You can always use a dry shampoo for in between.
2.Use Lukewarm Water
It’s tempting to use hot water in this cold weather or a hot shower but lukewarm is much better for your hair. Only use a pea-sized amount of shampoo and rinse well before applying conditioner. Leave on for a few minutes and rinse well, giving a final rinse with cold water to promote shine. For extra dry hair moisturise overnight. Before you sleep spray with a light mist of vitamin E oil. Comb through with a wide toothed comb and leave until morning.
Forget the old wives’ tale of a hundred strokes every day. In winter, hair is drier and more brittle and more easily pulled out or damaged. So brush gently using a wide toothed brush or comb to get rid of tangles. A natural bristle brush is better than metal or plastic as it doesn’t stretch the hair cuticles or increase the chance of static electricity. For smoother finish put a little olive on your brush or comb. Finally have a regular trim of about half an inch to get rid of dead ends
4.Dress to Protect Your Hair
To protect your hair from dry air cover with a pretty scarf on freezing day. When you choose a new coat, buy one with a close-fitting hood. If you have long hair avoid roll-necks as hair tends to get knotted at the back, causing tangles. Finally use fabric softener when washing your clothes, again to avoid the build-up of static electricity which makes hair misbehave.
