5 Hair Tips for the Fall and Winter
The fall and winter seasons are right around the corner. Heck it feels like late fall here in Chicago as I type this. As we get ready for this festive time of year, it’s important to change your hair regimen for your hair to be able endure the frigid temperatures. I have compiled five fall and winter hair tips that are valuable for any hair type. Amp Up The Moisture The fall and winter’s cooler temperatures can wreak havoc on our tresses. For those of us that live in more frigid climates, the cold weather can suck all of the moisture out of your hair. Increase moisture by incorporating moisturizing deep conditioning treatments and moisturizing your hair more often. If you’re like me and you don’t like too touch your hair a lot in between wash days, opt for a humidifier while you sleep. This will not only help you to breathe better, but it also provides a moist environment for your hair. Protective Styling Cooler temperatures call for sweaters and coats made of wool, cotton, etc. Though these help to keep us warm, they can snag and pull on our tresses which can create split ends. Incorporating stylish protective styles such as buns, up-do’s, and braids will protect your hair and prevent breakage. Make sure that you are still taking care of your hair while protective styling. Another great way to protect your hair is to wear satin or silk lined hats to prevent snagging. Coconut Oil Many of us have experienced stiff hair when using coconut oil in the fall and winter months. This stiff feeling happens because coconut oil solidifies below 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 Celsius). To combat this, apply coconut oil lightly to your tresses so that the stiffness isn’t so noticeable and it also helps the oil to easily penetrate your strands. Another option is to try oils that don’t solidify as much in cooler temperatures such as almond, olive, and argan oils. Humectants Humectant based products are used to attract moisture from the air to moisturize hair. They are great to use in the summer and spring months. Cooler climates in the fall and winter months have dry air which makes humectants purposeless. Instead of pulling moisture from the air, humectants will pull it from your hair causing dryness. Humectants include honey, glycerin, propylene glycol, castor oil, and aloe vera juice. These ingredients are multi-purpose, so if they are listed far down in the ingredient list they probably won’t be effective as humectants. Nutrition Fall and winter months are the most festive time of the year. With that comes the over consumption of food that usually has minimal nutritional value for our bodies and won’t benefit our hair. Inadequate nutrients can cause shedding, slow growth, and brittle hair. It’s important while we are indulging to also incorporate foods such as fruits, vegetables, protein, and whole grains to promote optimal hair growth. Multi-vitamins can also help to replenish our hair and body when our diet is lacking.
