During the winter months, cold outside weather combined with dry indoor heat can wreak havoc on your strands, leading to split ends and breakage. That’s right: Breakage isn’t just summertime sadness. It happens in winter, and to all manner of hair types.
With the temperature on the decline, you’ll more than likely be putting those frequent wash & gos on halt until the warmer months. Keeping your hair at its healthiest in the winter is a bit of a challenge due to the fact that the hair experiences dramatic changes in temperature and conditions when going in and outside.
Washing your hair too much during the winter will also rob it of the moisture it needs to remain healthy, especially if you’re using something clarifying. Also, leaving the hair wet or damp when going outside can actually cause the hair to freeze and break off causing unnecessary damage. Reducing the amount of wash days you do is beneficial to some due to the fact that the hair seems to flourish the most when you aren’t messing with it.
Changing your wash schedule to every other week could be the best choice for your hair if you don’t mind going an extra week without washing.
