Winter Hair Mishaps: Dandruff, Rough Hair & Static!

November 04, 2014

We shared some tips about how you can keep your tresses terrific this winter, but what do you do if you already have itchy, dry scalp, rough hair or static? Today, UhHSupply's experts weigh in on the best ways for you to deal with damaged hair.

Myth: Itchy, Dry Scalp is NOT Adult Onset Lice


It is, in fact, dandruff. During winter, when we take long, hot showers, the scalp loses its natural oils and becomes dry and flakey. The key to fighting dandruff is to replenish the scalp's natural oils and to moisturize your hair.

In some cases, product build-up can cause the scalp to develop dandruff during winter. This can be cleared up with a purifying product, such as Natural Tech's Purifying Shampoo. Nioxin has developed a fantastic product, Scalp Recovery Pyrithione Zinc Dandruff Conditioner to help moisturize your scalp. For an extra boost, try Creme of Nature Medicated Anti-Dandruff Soothing Lotion, a leave-in lotion which controls flakes and itching in between shampoos. It contains 150% more active ingredient than leading brands, yet is gentle to the scalp.

 

Rough Hair Needs Extra TLC

Shampoo can strip the moisture from your hair and scalp, so don't wash every day, but be sure to condition every time you do wash, or consider co-washing.

 

Don't Give in to Static

When your scalp is dry, your hair develops static. Be generous with the conditioner and consider a hair oil to mimic the natural scalp oils before you go to bed.

You may want to use a brush with natural bristles.
