Try rubbing a balloon on your head, rubbing a plastic ruler with paper, or dragging your sneakers on the carpet. What do you get? Static electricity.
This also happens when you take off your wool hat in the wintertime. Static electricity is more noticeable in the winter when the air is very dry. Unfortunately, it’s not only the air that becomes very dry, so does your hair! Long hair especially takes a battering from blustery winds.
Here are Mane ‘n Tail’s top winter hair care tips:
Blame the freezing temperature for causing dry and brittle hair, but praise the daily conditioner to keep your hair protected during these winter months. Mane ‘n Tail Daily Control Anti-Dandruff Conditioner is safe and gentle for all hair types.
Gentle Replenishing Conditioner enhances hair softness and shine while reducing frizz, breakage and split ends. Essential oils, natural herbs, vitamins and proteins nourish for a healthier scalp.
Keep it Cool
Limit your use of “hot” items on your hair. If you need to use a straightener, curling irons and blow dryers on your hair, check out Mane ‘n Tail Hair Strengthener. Made to protect hair strands from heat and chemical styling, our alcohol-free formula provides important additional moisturizing.
Avoid taking hot showers or washing your hair in hot water, use warm or cool water instead. The heat can dry out and damage your hair and skin. Already seeing cracked skin on your hands? Pick up some Hoofmaker which penetrates through rough, callused skin areas to bring back the softness.
Cut it Off
Regular trims every 8–10 weeks are important to get rid of parched ends and give curls more bounce. If you’re long overdue for a cut, use our Deep Moisturizing Conditioner as a natural moisture retention treatment for dry, damaged hair.
Listen to Your Mom!
“Don’t go outside with a wet head or you’ll catch a cold!” It’s a warning that’s been passed from one generation of parents to the next and is just an old wives’ tale. But if it’s cold enough and you do go outside when your hair is wet, it could freeze and you risk breakage. Reduce your chances with Herbal-Gro Creme Therapy. It helps to prevent hair breakage, frizz and dryness.
