Winter hair care is very important as the cold dry air during this season causes the skin and hair to become excessively dry. Dry hair is vulnerable to breakage, frizz, and tangling. Sebum is the oil produced by your body that acts as a natural moisturizer to prevent these problems. However, in winter, sebum production is drastically reduced which leaves your hair and scalp vulnerable to drying. This is why dry scalp problems often occur during winter. Winter hair care practices increase moisture levels and keep your hair moisturized and smooth.
Regular oil massages are a vital part of any winter hair care regimen. Olive oil and almond oil are healthy oils that will provide your skin and hair with fatty acids and vitamins. These nutrients penetrate deep into the scalp and hair shafts and keep your hair smooth and problem free. Jojoba oil is very similar to sebum and is easily absorbed by the hair and scalp and so you can add a few drops of it to your hair oil. Use warm hair oil and cover your hair with a shower cap to trap the heat and increase the amount of oil absorbed by your scalp and hair.
