Hair care in the winter

If in the summer we spend a lot of time on the street, eat greens and other sources of essential vitamins and minerals, in the winter our diet and lifestyle often changes. It is during the cold season, many suffer from colds, ARVI, which affects the general condition of the body, including the hair. But if you wish, you can return your hair health and strength, if you follow a number of rules.

Do not give up the caps

Many girls walk in a cold season without a hat. Someone is afraid that she will ruin her hair, someone is sure that he will not wear hats. However, walking without a hat is not worth it. Trichologists warn that such a habit can lead to hair loss. Due to exposure to cold air, your hair is under severe stress. On the street, the vessels of the head due to frost strongly narrowed. Because of this, the spasm worsens the blood circulation of the head, and, as a result, the hair bulbs do not receive the nutrition they need. Because of this, the hair will start to fall out, grow worse, become brittle, dull and thin. Without a hat in the winter can not do. But it should be chosen correctly:
  1. Suitable size. If it is too tight, you should not buy it. It can cause headaches, as well as damage the hair shaft, make them brittle.
  2. From natural yarn. You should not take hats made of synthetic materials, even if they are much cheaper and brighter. In it, the head will constantly sweat and get greasy. Synthetics do not "breathe." And where it is humid and hot, microorganisms multiply rapidly, which can lead to seborrhea and dandruff. Much warmer and better hats made from natural materials.
  3. Correct mating. Many people like to wear hats made of wool, cotton with "loose" knitting. But in such a hat can be tangled hairs. Removing it, we break off them or rip them out. Better to buy hats with a smooth texture, knitwear or cashmere.
If you enter from the street into a warm room, for example, in an office or clinic, do not forget to take off your hat. This is required not only by the rules of decency. In warmth, the head will sweat and the head will quickly become oily. Hats need to be washed regularly, otherwise they will stain the head.


Beauty of hair depends on proper nutrition. Hair 65-90% consists of proteins. Therefore, those who dream of a thick head of hair should not ignore the meat. On the table should be lean beef, cottage cheese, cheese, nuts, all sorts of seafood, eggs. The body should regularly receive group B vitamins found in the liver, some cereals, bran and dairy products, as well as omega-3 fatty acids from fatty fish or other sources.

In winter, it is important to drink plenty of fluids, at least 1.5-2 liters, not counting broths, coffee and tea. Hair for 10-15% consist of water. But in winter the indoor air is over dry due to central heating radiators. Our hair loses moisture, becomes dry and brittle and dull. Therefore, in the cold season, too, you need to drink water, even if you are not tormented by thirst, as in summer. You can buy a humidifier, often ventilate the room. And try not to blow dry your hair.

Proper shampooing

Do not wash your hair every day. Then the scalp will produce even more fat, and the hair will begin to get dirty faster. This does not mean that you can walk for a week with a dirty head. But if the hair remained lacquer or styling hairstyles, all this is better to wash off on the same day. And on average, people with straight or slightly wavy hair need to wash every 2 or 3 days, and with curly hair - every 4 or 5 days. How to wash your hair:
  1. Especially for the cold season, pick up your shampoo, especially if you have oily hair. In winter, they become drier due to the frosty air and constantly working heating. It is necessary to switch to shampoos for normal hair, and if necessary, choose the products recommended for dry or damaged. It is not worth buying cheap products, because they are often too aggressive.
  2. Before washing your hair, you can use a scrub for the scalp or peeling. It should be spread over the scalp, rinse, and then apply shampoo or balm. By the way, do not buy detergents that contain 2 in 1. It is better to take them separately. After washing, use a lotion-tonic, which makes hair more silky and shiny. In winter, you can buy cosmetics for hair, which will deal with their dryness.
  3. Hair should be washed in warm water. Do not use hot water for this.
  4. It is important to wash your hair properly. Apply shampoo to the scalp to rinse it, and already with foam you can rinse the hair itself. Balsam, on the contrary, can not handle the roots, it is designed for the tips of the hair. On the weakened hair can be applied along the entire length.
  5. Do not comb wet hair. So you can easily damage them. Do not use metal combs. It is more useful than wood or from other natural materials, from high-quality plastic.
  6. You should not dry them with a hairdryer, especially using hot air. After washing your hair you need to get wet with a towel and wait until they dry out.
  7. You can not sleep with wet hair. Especially to go out in the cold with wet. If you go out into the cold without drying your hair, water turns into ice crystals, destroying their structure.
