We all love admirable and beautiful locks and tresses. However, certain out of control factors can affect the way our hair feels and looks. If you have lived in harsh winter conditions, then you probably have experienced the kind of negative toll the winter weather can take on your hair.
No hair texture is immune to the harshness of the winter weather. Your hair needs to be protected and defended from the whipping cold, fiery winds and cool arctic blasts that accompany the winter. Taking proper care of your hair in the winter will ensure that you have gorgeous tresses to showcase in springtime.
Here are a few short and quick tips to get your hair popping in the winter.
● Suck up on Vitamins
Certain vitamins like biotin, Vitamins A, C, and mineral iron can contribute to making your hair look healthy, soft, and beautiful. Everything about our bodies need to be taken care of on the inside and outside, and the hair isn't an exception.
Modern research doesn't really support the sole use of biotin, however they are still popularly used for hair health. Prenatal vitamins and supplements are also used for hairs. Marine protein supplements have also been proven to make hair look healthy, lovely and beautiful.
So just pop up lots of relevant vitamins during the winter!
A lot of people don't know this, but it's not right to overwash your hair. Over washing your hair strips it of it's essential oils and ingredients that are instrumental in keeping your hair moisturized. In the winter, these oils are necessary and must not be washed out no matter what. If it happens, then this is the beginning of brittleness and long term dryness. Dual contributing factors to hair breakage and damage.
Space out time between washes. Just like skincare needs a routine, so does your hair. Try washing every three days as opposed to everyday. Use a good shampoo like African Pride's Olive Miracle.
