Sun damage may be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of protecting your hair from the elements, but dry weather also can take its toll on that luscious mane. Winter hair care is as important as it is easy and affordable! Some of the most essential winter hair-care tips require only items you may already have in your kitchen. However, if you need to upgrade your hairbrush or invest in some salon-quality winter hair-care products, be sure to get them with Cash Back at Ebates. Here are our top hair-care tips to get you through the coldest months.

Coconut oil with a tablespoon on wooden table1. Coconut Oil Is Magic

There isn’t much coconut oil can’t do, including fending off flakes. Your scalp is just as prone to drying out as the rest of your skin, and conditioner just won’t cut it. Melt a tablespoon of coconut oil, and then mix in a teaspoon of lemon juice. Gently massage the mixture into your scalp, let it soak in for about a half hour and then shampoo and condition as normal. Add this to your winter hair-care routine once a week and you’ll notice a healthier scalp in no time.

2. Fight Frizz

Hats and beanies are a stylish way to keep warm and protect the integrity of your strands. Unfortunately, they also cover up your cute winter hairstyles and cause a lot of frizz. Prevent hat head and frizz by lightly wrapping your hair in a silk scarf before putting on your hat. You should also use a vented hairbrush with plastic and boar bristles, and always use a leave-in conditioner.

Natural oils are important to your hair’s health, and over-washing can definitely take the life out of it. Make sure you are washing your hair no more than three times a week. Between washes, spray your scalp lightly with dry shampoo to keep your coif looking clean and fresh.

4. Blow-Drying Basics

We all know excessive blow-drying can wreak havoc on your hair, but it’s important never to leave the house with wet hair during winter. It’s way too cold for comfort, and it can also make your hair more brittle. When you don’t have time to let your hair air dry before heading out, blow-dry it on the coolest setting and always point the barrel down the length of your hair to prevent frizz.

Humidifier5. Get a Humidifier

Think humidifiers are only cold remedies? Think again! If you’re blasting the heat, the air in your home can get dry as well. Turning on a humidifier at night at least will create a healthier environment for your hair.
