Humidity is low, which might seem nice when your hair isn’t frizzy, but in reality when there’s little moisture in the air, your hair can get really dry.
While I often let my hair air-dry in the summer, I’m pretty likely to blow-dry it in the winter. I don’t always do it, but the warm air just feels so good! And it makes me cold to let my hair stay wet for a few hours, which it inevitably does after a shower. So, yes, I succumb to the hairdryer and even the straightener, and my hair is starting to show it.
With the dry air, the heat treatments, and the increased use of hats and scarves, your hair is probably starting to get some damage, too. Is it breaking easily? Do you have more split ends than usual? Has it grown dull and lost its shine?
Yep. Winter is hard on hair.
