Winter Hair Care

Nov 06, 2016

As the colder temperatures and chilly weather come rolling in, it's time to start thinking about how to protect our hair during the winter. You might not realize it, but winter weather can actually be quite damaging to the health of your hair. Read on to find out a few tips to keep your hair at its best! 

Deep Conditioning

  • The combination of the cold outside, especially if it's dry cold, and the artificial heat inside can be extra harmful to your hair.
  • Cold weather can make your hair brittle, and indoor heating can dry it out.
  • Both of these can lead to split ends and breakage, which can be especially frustrating if you have long hair or are trying to grow your hair out. 
  • One thing you can do to get a little moisture back into your hair is to apply a deep conditioning treatment. You can visit a local salon, or even a nearby drugstore, to find out what's available to you. 
  • You can apply a conditioning treatment by yourself, and usually won't need to do it more than once a week or every two weeks.

Skip a Wash

  • A lot of people feel that they need to wash their hair every day in order to keep it clean, but this kind of frequency is just not necessary. 
  • Shampoo strips natural oils from your hair; if you shampoo too often, these oils won't have any chance to replenish and your hair will dry out. 
  • If you have a very oily scalp, or work out and sweat a lot every single day, you might still need to wash your hair daily, but most of us could benefit from skipping a day or two. 
  • Experts recommend washing your hair three or four times a week.

Get a Hair Cut

  • It's a good idea, all year round, to visit a barber or hair salon every 2-4 months or so, even if it's just for a trim.
  • Getting regular trims may not actually make your hair grow more quickly, but a trim can prevent damage. When you get a split end on your hair, that breakage tends to travel up, so that if you want to get it trimmed your stylist may need to take much more length off than they would have had you gone earlier. 
  • If you are trying to grow your hair long, getting a trim is especially important, as it will keep your hair healthy.

If you're concerned about keeping your hair healthy during the winter, the above tips can really help. You could also ask an expert (like a hair stylist) for advice on how to take care of your hair specifically.

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

I'm in 8th grade and I ride the bus with a friend of mine. He's in 6th grade. Recently, I've had all of these weird feelings and I think I like him. He's so young but he already has a girlfriend. I couldn't get in the way of that. PLUS, everyone would make fun of me. I can't tell anyone this because I know I'll be judged.  What do I do?  :rain  :mad

My best friend's ten-year-old sister weighs close to that much, and she looks nowhere near fat. But even if you're shorter than most, I wouldn't worry about it until a lot later in your life, because kids tend to "grow into" their weight. BMI isn't always accurate, too, though; my BMI marks me as overweight, but I'm told by lots of people I'm average-looking.If you want to worry about it now anyways, I'd talk to a pediatrician or your parents or some other adult before taking action, and listen to any advice they may have. Made a typo first time around. Fixed it. First sentence said "weight" instead of "height".
