Dry Hair in the Winter

Dealing with Dry Hair in the Winter

Nothing takes away from a guy’s flow more than dry, brittle hair. No one wants to run their fingers through a mane with no moisture, so we’re here to give you the 411 on how to get luscious locks again, stat. Knowing the culprits of dry hair and then incorporating a healthy hair regimen will keep your style from falling flat.

Dry hair and dandruff can be the byproduct of many factors, including a naturally dry scalp, the environment, poor diet, or too much washing. You can start to be proactive about your hair care at home by paying attention to what you put in your body and on your head. Breaking down what you can do to stay on top of your mop will prevent further damage and encourage natural repair. 

How to Avoid Dry Hair

Eating foods rich in Iron, B12, and Vitamin D will help boost your body’s natural moisture levels and keep you shining. Make sure to shield your scalp from products containing alcohol (save it for beers with the boys) as it will dry out your hair even more. 

The outside elements impact your locks just as much as what’s going on inside. A Massachusetts winter’s cold, dry air can severely dehydrate your hair. Wear a hat to avoid getting the worst kind of flakes (snowing dandruff isn’t as well-received as the real stuff). Our final tip is one you’ll love: Don’t wash your hair so much. Who knew? There can be too much of a good thing. Let your natural oils soak into that beautiful scalp of yours and stop washing away the good stuff. 

We’ve laid out a blueprint of how to get your tresses back on track, but the fun part hasn’t even started yet. Taking care of your hair doesn’t have to be a chore–let it become your favorite part of your routine. We have created a killer combo of products to ensure that your flow is back in full swing.

Dry Hair Damage Control

Get yourself a lather and rinse that works so well it doesn’t need repeating. Look for products that have natural supplements that will help restore your hair’s natural moisture. Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Shampoo contains tea tree oil and peppermint to deliver a shot of refreshment to your scalp. Tea tree oil gives the product its antibacterial and antifungal properties, which are dandruff’s worst enemies.

Find a conditioner to be your shampoo’s partner in crime. Using products from the same line complement each other well and will give the finishing touch to your wash. Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Conditioner detangles and softens your hair. The rich formula smoothes hair while locking in moisture to prevent further damage. 

Enlist special forces to fight the battle against brittle hair. A once-in-a-while deep conditioning treatment will give your locks a burst of life and wake them up from the winter blues. Get right to the root of the problem by hitting your hair where it’s hurt: your scalp. Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Hair and Scalp Treatment will recondition, repair and protect hair all while it soothes your dry, itchy scalp. The product is made with soy proteins, panthenol, vitamin E and shea butter to boost repair, and willow bark to calm troubled skin.

Bring in the big guns if you need a heavy hitter. Sometimes a regular routine just won’t cut it and your hair will need a miracle to bring it back to its glory days. AC Hair’s Control Anti-dandruff Shampoo will work magic on a mane that has all but given up. The extremely effective formula contains more than twice the active ingredients (and none of the tar) found in competing dandruff shampoos. This particular product has the maximum zinc level allowable sans prescription to do the hard work and contains calming natural ingredients like aloe vera, Vitamin E, and cucumber to remedy itchiness and discomfort.

Now that you have these tips in your back pocket, you’ll be able to dodge dandruff and dryness before it hits you. You can thank us later for saving your scalp and moisturizing your mane.
