How to Keep Hair Looking Hot in the Cold of Winter

 Now that the blue of the beach is just a distant memory, our bodies and hair now need to adjust to the cold. There are some really easy hair care tips that keep luscious locks flowing, even on the coldest days this winter.

Keep moisture in. This is very important, as most people assume that cold air could not possibly cause dry hair. One of the easiest solutions to the winter weather robbing hair of moisture is a healthy, moisturizing/hydrating shampoo for dry or damaged hair. Read the ingredients carefully, as many conditioners contain alcohol which dries out the scalp and hair.

Chill on the hair washing. Too much hair washing can also dry out the hair and scalp. I know that missing a hair washing is not easy to do. This might be especially hard if one works in a restaurant or bar. If people are smoking in the bar, that smell stays in the hair. If one has been cooking onions and garlic all day, that smell also stays in the hair. When hair is washed, apply a deep conditioner to keep hair sleek without looking greasy.

Deep condition with items from your own kitchen. Winter is already an expensive time of year with holiday gift giving and extra entertaining required. All of these additional expenses do not have to sacrifice the texture of your hair. There is an easy solution and it is right from your own kitchen cabinet. Even if you don’t have these items in your possession, it is worth making a special trip to the store. This recipe for hair restoration came from Tiffany Moore of You will need:

1 egg yolk
½ mashed avocado
4-5 tablespoons coconut milk

Combine the egg yolk and ½ mashed avocado in a small bowl. Add 4-5 tablespoons coconut milk to make a smooth mixture. Take the mixture and apply and massage into the scalp. Leave this mixture on hair for 15-20 minutes. Rinse out well and feel the instant relief. How does this magical mixture work? Coconut milk and avocado are full of antioxidants and keep humidity at bay. In fact, coconut oil can seal the hair cuticle, locking in healthy and strong hair growth.

Prevent falls. Yes, the cold weather not only affects our footing, but the cool temperatures cause the sebaceous glands to work in overdrive. When this happens, the abundance in oils causse the hair to fall out. Combat this in a couple of ways. Wear headbands that aren’t too tight, which can pull out hair. Also, use a wide tooth comb so that the motion of brushing hair can be done without taking too much hair with it.

Think from within. Keep your insides healthy and hydrated in the winter months by eating and drinking well. Human hair is made up of 100% protein, so feed it well. Turkey, eggs, milk, and fish. If you are a vegetarian and want to maintain protein, keep your diet full of (unsaturated fats) such as olive oil, avocados, walnuts, and sunflower seeds. These are great on salads!
