Combat Parched Winter Hair with Shea Butter

Winter is here and the cold weather can dry out your hair and damage it beyond repair. Check out the tips listed below to help get you combat parched winter hair.

1. Shampoo Less

excessive shampooing can strip natural oils from the hair so it is best to shampoo every other day or less frequently, if possible, unless you exercise regularly or work outdoors.

2. Nix the Heated Hair Appliances

In order to avoid damage caused by hair appliances, it is best to let your hair air dry whenever possible. Blow-drying can dry out the hair and damage it even more. When using hot rollers or a flat iron, apply a light protective hair product to the hair to lessen the damage.

3. Increase Circulation to your Scalp

Massage your head daily for 5-10 minutes to promote blood flow to the scalp and improve the quality of your hair. This increases the circulation and stimulates the scalp while spreading natural oils throughout the hair.

4. Deep Condition Hair with Shea Butter

This thick and rich cream is great for parched dry hair. Melt Shea Butter, and apply to hair as a hot oil treatment after shampooing. Comb thru and rinse for silky soft tresses.

5. Eat Right

Finally, be sure to eat enough protein, B vitamins and drink enough water to stay well hydrated.
