With snow storms reaching record highs, city streets remaining unplowed, and cabin fever spreading, the last thing you may be thinking about is your hair. While many ladies donned hairnets and bonnets for the past few days, the upcoming days of snow and harsh winds can really do a number on your hair. Here are a few things you can do to protect your hair from winter’s harsh elements.
- Trade in your wool hat for a polyester or silk lined hat. Wool seems to do a number on African American hair. The friction of the wool against coarse hair can easily snatch hair right out of the roots.
- While it is too cold for wash and goes, use leave-in conditioners that can be blown dry in. Leave-in conditioners leave an extra protective coating on hair strands, protecting them the elements.
- Make sure you keep up with your trims! With hair constantly being brushed against coats, scarfs, and hats, ends can get dry and brittle.
- Most importantly, endorse steam treatments! Steam treatments can change seasonably. Winter treatments maybe high in oil and protein to protect hair from winter elements. Your hair will definitely benefit from the added proteins and vitamins you give it.
