Winter is approaching, and the weather is already getting fairly frosty for many of us around Bellevue. This is a time that can be pretty hard on your hair. If you want to protect your hair and look your best for your holiday get-togethers, consider the following cold-weather hair care tips:
- A hat, scarf, or hood can serve to protect your hair from the harmful effects of the cold and wind. However, try not to wear something that is tight enough to restrict circulation to your scalp.
- Be mindful of the fact that the effects of the sun can be just as intense on the ski slope as they are on the beach.
- Use a moisturizing conditioner, then lock in the moisture by rinsing your hair with cold water. As much as it is tempting to take long, hot showers in the cold months, cold water is best for your hair.
- 30Resist using hot tools on your hair, like blow dryers and curling irons. The air is dryer in the cold months, and drying out is more of a concern.
