6 Mantras For Healthy Hair During the Cold Season
It’s that time of the year again, Christmas is just around the corner and the winter season urges us to have a little extra care with our hair. During winter, our hair tends to go dry, brittle and break easily. For this reason, we want to give you a few tips to protect your hair from the cold and help stay healthy and prepared for the joys of winter.
Here’s everything you need to know:
Keep your hair hydrated
Use a daily use Conditioner every time you wash your hair and a hydrating mask like the SoCap Extension Care Instant Restructuring Mask once a week. This is a key element if you want to protect your hair from the cold since combining these two products will keep you nourished and prepared for the cold waves.
Avoid using super strong shampoo
Try to avoid dandruff shampoos or shampoos for greasy hair since they tend to dry and weaken hair. Ideally, use a mild neutral shampoo for daily use and regularly apply a hair oil moisturizer, such as coconut or jojoba.
Consider massaging your scalp
Massaging the scalp is very effective to protect the hair from the cold. When you apply the mask or hair oil scalp massage to promote blood circulation and remove dead cells.
Be careful with hot water/ heating tools
We know, there’s nothing like a warm bath during winter, but washing your hair with hot water may weaken your hair’s health. For heating tools, it is advisable, moreover, to carefully dry your hair with a towel to remove excess water and use your dryer with caution, at a considerable distance and sparingly. Heat dry weakens and breaks hair, so the less you use irons or curlers the easier it will be for you to protect your hair from the cold.
Try a new style: Use a hat or a cap
Covering your hair is a good way to avoid exposure to winter cold and moisture. Try hats and caps that you use are natural, such as cotton or wool fibers.
Consider high nutrient foods
A healthy diet is one of the most important things you can do to protect your hair from the cold. Foods rich in vitamins, proteins, and zinc will help you keep your hair healthy, shiny and strong. In addition, you should always make sure you’re drinking enough water to keep your hair protected and well nourished.
