5 Natural Remedies for Winterizing Hair and Scalp
Winter weather is here, and along with the cold, your clients may well be coming in asking what they can do to bring life back to their dry, dull hair. Here are five tips to help give your clients’ locks a lift during the winter months.
Give the scalp some love.
Massage your scalp before showering to exfoliate old cells, get waste byproducts out to the surface for removal, and invigorate your scalp with fresh, oxygen-rich blood. A build up of chemicals from hair care products can affect scalp pH and sebum production, leading to scalp inflammation and follicle damage that can result in hair loss or poor hair growth.
Keep the body hydrated.
Indoor heating during the winter saps moisture out of our skin, including on the scalp. Pure water, herbal teas, and green tea are all great choices to help ensure you stay hydrated. Make it a habit to carry a refillable water bottle with you so you can keep yourself topped up throughout the day.
Use hot oil treatments.
Indulge your scalp and hair with a weekly hot oil treatment to improve texture and maintain sheen. Even if you have oily hair, hot oil treatments are still beneficial for maintaining healthy moisture balance—just use a thinner oil, such as coconut oil or argan oil. Drier hair types can use a thicker oil, such as luxurious shea butter, jojoba, or avocado oil. All are 100% pure and wonderfully moisturizing!
Take a daily supplement.
A healthy diet is your first step to great hair, so to ensure that your hair gets all of the key nutrients it needs on a regular basis, try supplementing with an all-natural supplement like Hair Essentials.

Protect your hair from the elements.
