The fall weather is officially here and the cold temperatures could start giving you some major hair problems. It’s time to put your summer products away, visit the beauty salon, and give your hair some TLC to keep your hair looking healthy during the cold weather.
First thing’s first. We know that taking a hot shower during the cold weather feels so good, but washing your hair with hot water will actually dry out your hair. Instead wash your hair with warm or cool water. Cold water closes your pores in your scalp and seals your cuticles, flattening them to lock in moisture and make your hair look shinier.
Depending on your hair type, you may want to purchase a shampoo that focuses on curly, wavy, or straight hair. Look for shampoos that include natural oils and that increase volume, since the cold weather can cause your hair to flatten.
Look for natural shampoos that don’t contain sulfates or harsh detergents, since these can dry out your hair. Wash your hair only a couple of times a week because over washing can also strip your hair of their natural oils and cause it to get dry and make it more prone to split ends and breakage.
