Protecting Your Hair and Scalp During Winter

Protecting Your Hair and Scalp During Winter

So many of us spend countless hours of our life worrying over the state of our hair. Is it too dry, too curly, too straight, too frizzy, too oily? Is it time to get it cut, or to let it grow out? Should you use this product or that product to bring out its shine, or enhance its texture, or make it look thicker, or just look....better?


But while we may be giving loads of thought to the look of our tresses, we may be ignoring what's hiding underneath them, like the forest floor from which all lush vegetation grows: the all-important scalp. Truth is, a healthy scalp helps produce healthy hair. And as a team of hairstylists who have seen all of these conditions, we know that when the scalp is unhealthy; it can lead to itchy, uncomfortable rashes, bumps, flakes, and even hair loss.

Seasonal changes can effect your entire body, including your hair and scalp, especially during the winter months. If you notice that your scalp begins to feel dry or itchy in cold weather, you’re not alone. Wind, snow, and even the frequent use of head wear can lead to discomfort or damage to your hair and cause extreme itchiness.

Dandruff and an inflammatory skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis are the most common causes of itchy scalp. Seborrheic dermatitis can be the result of stress, seasonal changes, fluctuating hormones, or an overgrowth of yeast on the skin. To combat dry scalp symptoms due to cold weather, limit your time in the most frigid conditions. These are just a few of the most common causes of dry itchy scalp during the winter.
