Are you struggling with dry, staticy hair? Because I know I am!
These 3 tips will help to keep our lovely locks happy even in -20.
Im not sure where your tuning in from but currently I'm sitting cozy under my weighted blanket with a hot coffee and cozy sweater because its literally -16 outside right now. Trust me, I know its hard in these winter months to not have the heat blasting but our poor hair. I'm so tempted to turn up the heat in the house, in the car, in the shower to 100!!! This might feel nice for our heart but this isn't the best for those locks.
Heres 3 tips to beating those bad hair days when the weather is a little less then appealing:
Tip #1 - Feeling ELECTRIC
ZAP!!! When the temps dip low, the moisture is our hair is lacking, and the dry air causes our hair to have an electric charge, i.e. STATIC!!!
So what's the fix? We need to keep as much moisture in our hair as possible so it won't be as effected by the dry air. That means upping our moisture intake. Weekly moisturizing treatments like OLAPLEX #8 and hydrating shampoo and conditioners like OLAPLEX #4 and OLAPLEX #5 will be a huge help. Also keep a bounce sheet in your purse and run it over your hair or rub a small amount of hand cream in your palms and lightly run it over the staticky strands and this will help calm them down. Are you sleeping with a silk pillow case? Not only does it feel amazing on your skin, your hair will thank you!
Tip #2 - Struggle with dry, itchy scalp
I feel like a lot of us forget that our scalp is skin too! Our face or hands feel super dry and we notice it but we forget that our scalp feels this too.
So what's the fix? Just like feeling electric, we need moisture! I love incorporating the scalp massager to help exfoliate any dry skin and move our natural oils around to help saturate our strains but also unclog our pores, yes our scalp has pores and yes they get clogged to just like our face.
Tip #3 - Beanie anyone?
I love a good beanie as much as the next person, but have you ever worn one and when you take off your toque or scarf your hair is all matted??? The WORST!!
So what's the fix? Try braiding your hair to the side or back. I know, I know, I hear you saying "But I don't know how to braid my hair?" (PS Check back for a future blog on how to braid) If that's the case, try a bun or a ponytail. Anything to keep the hair contained will minimize the chances of matting.
Winter won't be around for long so I'm a try to make the best of it and at least enjoy good hair!
