We spend so much time taking care of our skin but forget our scalp is an extension of that! While you stock up on moisturizers, don’t forget to keep scalp protected this winter from itching, dryness, and sensitivity. The best way to prevent dry scalp is to take good care of your skin with the products that restore your scalp’s moisture and restore dryness. Head & Shoulders Dry Scalp Care gives your scalp the extra TLC it needs in the winter by locking in moisture 75% better than moisturizing shampoo alone, leaving your scalp hydrated and flake-free.
Celebrity stylist Sunnie Brook Jones recommends fighting dry scalp with a coconut cream mask, which is especially good for medium to coarse hair. Start by softening a spoonful of coconut oil cream in your hands and massaging it into your hair. Then, wrap your head in a warm 100% cotton towel and leave the mask on for an hour. Finally, wash out with a gentle shampoo, like Head & Shoulders.
A common winter annoyance is static, often caused by a lack of moisture in your hair, which becomes more noticeable when wearing winter hats. Sunnie Brook fights static by spraying a leave-in conditioner on her hair after showering or applying lotion to her hands and running her hands through her hair.
Head & Shoulders global dermatologist Dr. Ilyse Lefkowicz recommends incorporating certain foods and beverages into your diet during the winter as another way to keep your skin and scalp healthy. She suggests eating Kale for Vitamin A, berries for antioxidants, green tea for anti-inflammatory benefits, and salmon for omega 3, as well as avoiding high glycemic index foods.
