Silk head: hair care in winter

Winter is a very unfavorable time for hair. Cold and frost have a detrimental effect on them, the curls become dry, brittle and lose moisture. The work of the sebaceous glands in winter is more active, so the hair requires more thorough washing and care than at other times of the year. Use cool water and a mild revitalizing shampoo for washing, be sure to use a balm after washing — its protective layer will help keep your hair silky and healthy. Twice a week to strengthen and maintain healthy hair, apply nourishing masks to them. A special mask for hair care in the winter season from crushed wheat grains is very useful. Take a tablespoon of them, mix with two tablespoons of sunflower oil, heat in a water bath, and then carefully apply along the entire length of the hair. Cover your head with a warm towel and leave the mask on for twenty minutes, then rinse with warm water. Such an improvement will give your hair a wonderful volume and the necessary splendor. And for shine and strength of hair, prepare another one — mix coconut oil with fuller’s clay. Another way to heal your curls is a kefir mask that will supply your hair with the necessary calcium. Apply yogurt to the hair along the entire length, cover with a towel, leave for half an hour, then rinse. A similar recipe will saturate the scalp with the necessary milk proteins, which will strengthen and restore hair. There are other recipes for hair masks. You can read them on the hochu website. To stop hair loss, be sure to rub a gruel of fine sea salt and water into the scalp for several minutes. Then rinse with a decoction of sea buckthorn twigs and leaves, and also regularly use a decoction of unripe hop cones. When going outside in winter, be sure to wear a hat. It protects the hair from the cold, which makes it brittle and dry. Try not to use a hot hair dryer and various hair straighteners. Spare your hair. If you can’t do without a hair dryer, then turn on the cool air mode. Also, do not use hairspray that contains alcohol. This can lead to severe dryness of the hair. Do not overload your hair with mousses and gels. Hair is more electrostatic in winter. To remove the electrified hair, use a silk scarf and run it through the curls. During this period, it is advisable not to experiment with perm and dyeing, postpone these procedures until spring. Use combs made from natural materials that gently massage the scalp. Massage improves the blood supply to the roots. The ends of the hair suffer the most in winter. Use special products to restore them and periodically rub an oil mixture of sasanqua, lemon and rosemary into the ends of the hair. Trim split ends every month. Proper nutrition in winter is very important for healthy hair. Try to enrich the diet with vitamins and minerals, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, reduce the amount of fatty foods.
