We all know that the cold frigid weather can take a toll on our skin and hair. With all or most of the moisture taken out of the air when it gets really cold out, our hair sometimes starts drying out and that causes breakage and split ends. Sure you can do intense hair masks to help restore your locks, but here is another way to help get that moisture back into your hair...
Yes! That is a humidifier! These bad boys pump lots of moisture into the air. Put it on before going to bed and your hair will surely thank you! It also helps relieve dry scalps. Along with that, get a trim every 6-8 weeks and try not to use so much heat. I recommend a nice hydrating shampoo like Pureology Hydrate shampoo!
I alwayyys have static cling type hair in the winter and colder months from all the cold air and hats! I always just dealt with it until now! I no longer will just deal with it when there are such simple solutions that can fix it! I came across this post on Cosmopolitian.com!
Static happens when your hair picks up an electrical charge from the dry air, explains Kingsley. "It's common in the chillier months because the air is less moist everywhere," he adds. Fight it by switching to a more hydrating shampoo and conditioner for your hair type, then use a tourmaline or ionic hair dryer—they don't suck out moisture like regular dryers can, says NYC hairstylist Orlando Pita. If your static persists, try out one of the solutions below, matched to your specific hair texture:
Fine/Straight Hair: Rub an antifrizz cream (like Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Anti-Frizz Creme, $4.29, drugstore.com) on just the tips of your hair to avoid greasy buildup. Carry a dryer sheet for touchups during the day.
Medium/Wavy Hair: Your hair is thick, so it can handle a rich conditioning spray to lock in moisture and beat static. Apply it on damp hair before you blow-dry. Try L'Oréal EverCreme Nourishing Leave-In Spray, $8.99, ulta.com.
Full/Curly Hair: Coarse hair needs a heavier leave-in or overnight cream, like Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Overnight Hair Rescue, $38, sephora.com, to knock out static. Just be sure to avoid alcohol-based gels, which can dry out curls.
