Guys, relax. It’s not you… it’s your scalp! Today I am talking about a common hair issue that many of us suffer from when the weather changes from warm to cold. And some quick and easy ways to solve it.
Trust me, I get it! We are all familiar with it and the feelings of embarrassment that accompany dry scalp and dandruff. But you don’t have to suffer through it. There are simple tricks to help you through the cold winter.
There are many reasons for a dry scalp: weather, over-shampooing, and too many hair products, to name a few. Whatever the reason, here is a quick way to reduce or completely rid yourself of the flakes and the itch.
Immediately after showering (also consider using a hair conditioner 2-3x’s a week), towel dry your hair, then apply a hair moisturizer to your scalp. If you need to use another product to style your hair, wait 5 – 10 minutes before applying that styling product.
Shampooing removes the “day old” natural oils and hair products, leaving your scalp clean and moist. Applying a moisturizer to your scalp works the same way as applying a moisturizer to your body. A hair moisturizer along with the natural oils produced by your scalp is a more effective way of combating a dry and itchy scalp. Give it a try!
