As the weather turns colder, we often focus on protecting our skin from the harsh conditions. And while we may remember to moisturize and layer up, our scalps often get neglected. But just like the skin on our bodies and faces, the skin on our scalp needs extra attention and nourishment during the colder months when the air is drier and colder. In this blog post, we’ll explore how colder weather can dry out your scalp and what you can do to keep it nourished and healthy. We’ll also introduce you to one of our bestselling products for keeping your scalp nourished: Divi’s Scalp Serum.
Why Does Cold Weather Dry Out Your Scalp?
The cold, dry air pulls moisture from your skin and scalp. When the air is dry, it evaporates the natural moisture from your scalp, which can leave it dry, itchy and flaky. Additionally, when the temperature drops, the sebaceous (oil) glands in the scalp slow down their production. With less oil present, the scalp becomes drier and more prone to flaking. This dry scalp can lead to itching and even hair fall. But don't worry, there are things you can do to keep your scalp healthy.
Tips to Keep Your Scalp Hydrated and Healthy
Shampoo Less Often
Shampooing is an essential part of hair care, helping to cleanse your hair and maintain its health. However, it’s important to find the right balance to preserve your scalp’s natural oils. Over-shampooing can lead to a drier scalp, so consider incorporating a dry shampoo into your routine to extend the time between your regular shampoo washes.
Wear a Hat
There’s a reason why our mothers told us to wear hats in the winter. Hats keep your head and your hair protected from harsh winter weather.
Use a Scalp Serum
A scalp serum is a leave-in treatment that targets the scalp specifically. It works to hydrate the scalp by providing it with the moisturizing ingredients. Scalp serums can be easily applied morning or night on wet or dry hair to give the scalp’s skin the nourishment it needs.
If you have a dry scalp, it is crucial to condition your scalp consistently with every hair wash. Doing so aids in maintaining hydration and delivering essential nourishment to the scalp. To enhance the moisturizing benefits, opt for a conditioner that is rich in hydrating ingredients, such as Divi's hydrating conditioner.
Brush Your Hair
Brushing your hair every day helps to distribute the scalp's natural oils through your hair, keeping your scalp and hair moisturized during the dry winter months.
