Winter time brings so many great things like Christmas, snow and New Years Eve. But…it also brings cold air and zero humidity that can leave you with dry hair that is unmanageable and brittle, just in time for all of your holiday parties. Great.
I go through this same problem every single winter and over the years I’ve managed to find some great natural solutions to dry hair, ones that actually work.
First, avoid using the blow-dryer if you can. If you absolutely must blow-dry, use it on the medium/warm setting instead of the high/hot setting. A small change that can make a big difference.
Mash an avocado and a banana together until you have a smooth paste. Spread it on your hair and cover with a shower cap for an hour, then rinse with warm water. Your hair will feel smooth and also smell great.
For a natural conditioner that is also packed with protein try mixing one egg with a cup of natural yoghurt. Rub it into your hair and scalp and cover with a shower cap for 10-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water, not hot. Your hair will come out soft and shiny.
Vinegar is another natural conditioner that will also control dandruff and reduce frizz. Mix a 1/2 cup of vinegar with 2 cups of water. Put it in your hair after you shampoo and cover with a shower cap for 20 minutes and then rinse and condition as usual. Your scalp will be refreshed and your hair more manageable.
Natural oils work great. Olive oil, coconut oil or almond oil are all good solutions to dry hair and scalp. Warm some oil in a small bowl then smooth it evenly into your hair and gently massage into your scalp. Leave it on for 30 minutes or even over night and then wash normally but with cool water.
Finally, the best way to get healthy hair is through a healthy diet. Drink lots of water and try eating more raw fruits and vegetables. When picking a snack go for seeds and nuts, they haveessential fatty acids that will make your hair shine.
