Sweater Weather and Your Hair

Do you welcome or woe sweater weather? The transition from season to season is a refreshing change but it can cause hair challenges. As the heaters get turned on in the car and the house you may start to notice your hair has a lot of static charge. This is because the more you expose your hair and skin to dry, arid heat the more moisture you will loose. You may first notice this “drying out” effect on your hands when they start to look dull and more wrinkled or have “alligator” skin. Remember if your skin is dry that means your scalp and hair are dry too.

So what steps can you take to help you win the static wars? Our stylists offer some easy at-home tips:

JBevPear’s Tip: Avoid Rubbing. Instead of rubbing your hair with a towel, which creates friction and roughs up the cuticle causing frizz, squeeze the excess water from your hair.

Kami’s Tip: #Clarify Hair. Summer hair can have a lot of buildup. From leave-in conditioners to sea salt sprays, summer hair often requires a lot of products. Start the fall off with a clarifying shampoo to get your hair back into shape.

Nurcan’s Tip: Deep #Condition Weekly. Use a deep conditioning hair masque to help your hair adjust to the change in temperature and to lock in essential oils.

Alasia’s Tip: Protect Before You Style. Use a heat protectant before using heated styling tools. Your hair is already dry, avoid damage by using products that both protect hair and reduce frizz.

Sabrina’s Tip: Stimulate Your Scalp. Use a boar bristle brush to help stimulate your scalp and your natural oil production. If you have the time, give yourself a 5 minute scalp massage as you condition your hair to increase your blood circulation and speeding up new hair growth.
