As the weather outside begins to change from humid and hot to dry and cold, we start to see a change in our hair as well. Our hair behaves similarly to the changing of leaves. Just as the leaves dry up and begin to fall off their branches, our hair starts to dry out due to the lack of moisture in the air and will shed. Wondering how to fight against winter hair? Keep reading for some tips and tricks to combat it.
What causes winter hair?
First, to solve a problem, we must understand the cause. What is the reason for dry, winter hair? It’s brought on by the lack of moisture in the air from the absence of humidity outdoors and indoor heating systems. The dry air pulls moisture out of the hair leading to dry strands and a damaged cuticle. Ever try to brush out that dry, damaged hair in a humidity-free environment? Yep, you’ve probably witnessed the dreaded “static hair” –the hair that feels almost impossible to fix. Luckily, we’ve got a few tips and tricks that will help tame or eliminate the static.
How do you fix it?
1. Use Moisturizing Products
Many sources recommend limiting the number of times you shampoo throughout the colder, drier months, but this isn’t necessarily the best option. Instead, we suggest washing as you usually would but changing the type of products that you use. Try incorporating moisturizing shampoos and conditioners. Don’t be afraid of moisturizing conditioners—they don’t have to be heavy. It’s best to keep it light, especially if you have fine, limp hair. Try our ultra-nourishing products.
2. Avoid Plastic Styling Tools
For apparent reasons, it’s best to avoid plastic styling tools at all costs. Plastic is non-conductive meaning it will contribute to the static mess that sits on your head. We suggest using wooden, rubber, or metal hair styling tools as an alternative. They are conductive and will banish the static from your hair.
3. Use a Smoothing Crème
A light layer of smoothing crème will coat the hair strands and neutralize the electric charge. The Nutrifuse Smoothing Crème is perfect for eliminating pesky frizz. Ingredients like argan oil, keratin, and collagen work together to provide the hair with the moisture it needs to combat disturbing static. Its ultra-light, non-greasy formula is perfect for the colder months.
There are many DIYs you can do to eliminate winter hair, but they’re all worthless if the root of the problem isn’t solved. By providing your hair with moisturizing ingredients, it removes the risk of dry, damaged, and static hair altogether. Nutrifuse products for men and women are specifically designed to replenish moisture and restore life into severely damaged hair. Interested in ordering? Call 855-747-9292
