It's Winter, Save my hair!!
With the return of "hardcore" winter, just barely begun, I can feel my hair already shriveling into a mess. The dandruff has begun. I was reading an article on Web MD about Winterizing your hair. According to Nick Chavez, celebrity stylist and QVC mainstay, the problem is two or three fold. You're combating the sun exposure that can dry out your hair (think skiing all day). Then add in the blustery winds that turn your hair into a snarly mess. And then to top it all off, you have the ice, snow, sleet conditions that makes your hair brittle and dry. And just when you think, I can escape that, there's the problem of indoor heating. Indoor heating is warm and dry, and in something I'd never heard of before, similar to being in a hairdryer all day. Which, really, is just that if you think about it. Think about what the dry heat does to your sinuses, your throat, your cold. Did we really think our hair could escape it? Another thing to think about in winter is static electricity. If you're anything like me, every time you take your jacket off, take off your scarf, etc. You hear that static sound. One of the home remedies has always been to rub a dryer sheet on your hair. Has this ever worked for you? It's never worked for me. What tricks have you found to use when winter comes?
