Wintertime can be especially rough on our bodies, making it difficult to maintain healthy hair and skin. The cold weather can induce dryness while hair can become dry and brittle as well. One thing you should do is set aside your clarifying shampoos that you used in summer to help get rid of oily hair and instead go for a more mild and hydrating cleanser that is free of sulfates. You should also use more hydrating hair masks such as Pureology Intense Therapy Hydrate Hydracure Masque. You should also stimulate your scalp with a weekly massage, using a tablespoon of shea, coconut, olive or jojoba oil and applying directly to your scalp. For a more relaxing experience, heat the oil for a few seconds in the microwave, then rub into your palms before applying to your scalp. This is also a time to indulge in healthier foods which provide essential nutrients and vitamins to your body. Read

Be sure to cut down on the amount of heat styling you do, as using flat irons and curling sticks on a regular basis will only encourage breakage and dryness. Look into safer options like air drying, sponge rollers and braiding wet hair to create more natural waves. Investing in a small humidifier is also a great idea because the moisture and replenishing of hair and scalp can be accomplished by running a humidifier next to your bed while you sleep. Add in essential lavender oils for an aromatherapy experience for your own at home spa experience. Check out
