Has your hair been a dry, frizzy mess of split ends since the days got colder? Have you been scratching an itchy scalp continuously since the sun disappeared behind the clouds, locked up in winter’s fortress?
These are the typical hair and scalp care woes we face during the cold, dry days of winter. While there is nothing you can do to change the weather, thankfully, there are some ways you can protect your hair and scalp from winter’s damaging effects.
The dry air during the winter months tends to leach moisture right out of your scalp and locks. Here are some tips for keeping your hair and scalp hydrated:
The other issue which can become problematic during winter is dandruff, sometimes taking the more severe form called seborrheic dermatitis.
The National Rosacea Society writes, “Although the cause is unknown, several contributing factors may play a role in developing seborrheic dermatitis: abnormality of the oil glands and hair follicles, a yeast fungus with bacteria growing in the sebum, production of certain hormones, stress, change of seasons (outbreaks seem worse in winter) and fatigue.”
What can you do to treat it? In severe cases, a medication might be necessary, but many patients can keep symptoms under control with diligent use of a dandruff shampoo.
It can be an uphill battle in winter to prevent a dry, flaky scalp and frizzy, brittle locks. But if you create a strict winter hair care routine, you should be able to keep seborrheic dermatitis from getting out of hand and maintain hydrated, silky, beautiful tresses.
