It’s a central part of daily life adjusting to environmental changes. We have to change our hair care strategies and environmental habits, while we use our winter robes to avoid eclipsing rain and snow or our swimsuits to swim in the golden haze of summers.
Believe it or not, the very hot or cold water can dry and parched our threads, resulting in breakage and injury. Summer heat may dehydrate our hair unnecessarily and prolonged exposure to the sun can cause our strands to boil.
Nor is winter a saint! Extremely cold temperatures will freeze moisture in our oceans, and our hair would be brittle and thin in places of low humidity and therefore break down.
But we don’t have to make our curls hurt, do we? Here are some tricks I use to moisturize my strands in all sorts of harsh weather:
At least weekly, I’m in good shape. Deep conditioning involves preparing our hair for prolonged periods to saturate our roots with water and emollients through the application of conditioning therapies. Similar formulas perform well with different hairstyles
I add my hair to my roots with light oil to keep all the water secure. Sweet, natural oils like coconut oil and olive oil, I like to use. The advice for hair oils based on the type of hair is as follows.
I’ve been eating lots of tea. Our internal water levels affect our scalp ‘s health and thus our hair state. A swollen, itchy, or flaky scalp can be a symptom of dehydration inside, so I keep my gallons high.
I keep the threads hidden once in a while with my threads. I still wear a hat or a bandana during the summer heat to protect my strands against excessive sun exposure. I keep my hair tucked up in cold weather and wear satin scarves and beanies.
How do you avoid damage to your hair by severe weather? Please leave us a note below. We would love to know. We would love to ask.
