Every Christmas, I see people taking to the streets in progressively thicker clothing, wrapping themselves in coats and scarves to protect against the chilly temperatures. When it comes to winter weather, everyone prepares for the worst. So, why is it that we don’t do the same for our hair? If the winter winds are harsh on our skin, imagine the damage they can do to our tresses.
The environment can have very damaging effects on hair and it’s something that we often forget to consider. While it’s commonly known that sun exposure causes dry, brittle hair, it is lesser known that cold and windy weather can have similar effects. it’s important to be aware of the damage that cold weather can do to wet hair, weakening it and making it prone to breakage.

Take little extra time to condition your hair usually,and consider treating yourself to moisturising hair mask ,ensuring that all contain fatty acids for extra healthy If this doesn’t sound too far removed from your usual hair care regime, consider purchasing warm hat to keep your hair under wraps this winter and help prevent the damage before done.
I find that people often wear hats because of the myth connecting hat and hair loss, or find blonde wigs , but this will only occur if your wear particularly tight hat that affect your circulation.
The contrast in temperatures we experience as we go from outdoors to indoors in the winter often has a negative effect on our hair, pulling the moisture from it and leaving it dry and weak. Wearing a hat can help reduce the damage by temperature, while preventing further scalp dryness.
