As winter season is here in full force, it's time to turn our attention to a crucial but often neglected aspect of our natural hair care routine – scalp care. The drop in temperature, coupled with the dry winter air, can wreak havoc on our scalp health. In this blog post, we'll delve into why scalp care is essential during the colder months and provide you with practical tips to keep your natural hair thriving.
Understanding the Winter Scalp Challenge: The winter season brings cold winds and low humidity, leading to a dehydrated scalp. Dry air can strip your scalp of its natural oils, resulting in itchiness, flakiness, and sometimes even dandruff. This imbalance can affect the overall health of your natural hair.
Gentle Cleansing for a Healthier Scalp: During the winter, we must avoid using harsh cleansers. A gentle cleanser that is free of harsh chemicals can prevent the scalp from being stripped of its natural oils in an effort to reduce dryness. Therefore, not compromising the scalp's moisture barrier.
Our Tailored Beauty Coconut Creme Shampoo is infused with coconut oil which cleanses and strengthens the hair without leaving it feeling stripped. It is formulated with aloe vera juice that moisturizes and restores the hair's natural pH. Our coconut creme shampoo is derived from natural sources and never contains parabens and sulfates.
Deep Conditioning Rituals: Dive into the benefits of incorporating deep conditioning treatments into your winter hair care routine. When purchasing deep conditioner, ensure there are ingredients such as essentials oil and butters formulated into it. These are nourishing ingredients especially during the winter that will keep your scalp in tip-top condition.
Our Tailored Beauty Moisture Penetrating Deep Conditioner is going to be your best friend. It contains a premium herbal blend of Fenugreek Powder and Bhringaraj Oil. It has the right amount of slip to make detangling easier which will reduce breakage, restore damaged hair strands and aid in length retention.
Protective Styles for Scalp Health: The colder months bring challenges like dry air and harsh winds that can strip the scalp of its natural moisture, potentially leading to irritation and discomfort. Choosing protective styles such as braids, twists, or wigs provides a shield against the harsh winter elements, minimizing exposure of the scalp to the cold air. By reducing direct contact with external factors, these styles help retain the scalp's natural oils and moisture, preventing dryness and itchiness. Moreover, protective styles also contribute to a decrease in hair manipulation, decreasing the likelihood of breakage and split ends. So, this winter, consider adorning your natural locks with a stylish protective do, not just as a fashion statement but as a practical and effective means of nurturing your scalp and ensuring your hair emerges into springtime with health and vibrancy.
Scalp Massages for Circulation: As the cold weather settles in, blood circulation to the scalp tends to slow down, potentially leading to dryness and reduced nutrient delivery to the hair follicles. A gentle yet invigorating scalp massage stimulates blood flow, carrying essential nutrients to the hair roots and promoting a nourished and revitalized scalp.
To combat this, ensure to oil your scalp on a daily basis. Using our Tailored Beauty Grow Thick Oil will coat your hair with a blend of nourishing oils that will impart their nutrients into it. The oil is formulated with castor, sesame, avocado, apricot, vitamin e, and rosemary oil. Also the oil is great for keeping your hair moisturized during this season.
In the winter months, your natural hair deserves a little extra TLC, starting with your scalp. By understanding the unique challenges posed by the colder weather and implementing these scalp care practices, you can ensure that your natural hair not only survives but thrives, leaving you with healthy, vibrant hair all winter long.
