Hair and the scalp tend to be drier during colder months for several reasons:
LOW HUMIDITY: Cold air typically has lower humidity levels, which means there's less moisture in the air. This low humidity can cause the moisture in your hair to evaporate more quickly, leaving it dry.
INDOOR HEATING: During cold weather, people often use indoor heating systems. These systems can further dry out the air, and as a result, your hair can lose moisture when exposed to this dry indoor environment.
HATS & SCARVES: To stay warm, you may wear hats and scarves that can create friction and rub against your hair, causing it to become dry, frizzy, and prone to breakage.
HOT SHOWERS: In cold weather, hot showers are tempting, but hot water can strip your hair of its natural oils, making it more susceptible to dryness.
To combat dry hair in cold weather, consider using a humidifier to add moisture to the air indoors, using a gentle shampoo and conditioner, and applying protective products like leave-in conditioners or oils to help retain moisture in your hair. You should also limit heat styling to prevent further damage and trim split ends regularly to prevent them from traveling up the hair shaft and causing more damage. By adopting these practices, you can help combat dry hair during colder months and maintain healthier, more manageable locks.
TWO NAJEAU HAIR PRODUCTS TO HELP COMBAT DRY HAIR:
NAJEAU HAIR MASK
Several oils found in our Hair Mask can be beneficial for keeping hair moisturized during colder and drier months:
MANUKA HONEY: Manuka honey is a special type of honey produced in New Zealand, and it can offer several benefits to combat dry hair. Manuka honey is a natural humectant, which means it draws in and retains moisture. When applied to the hair, it helps to lock in moisture and prevent dryness. It's rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids that can nourish and strengthen hair and improve shine and softness.
ARGAN OIL: Known as "liquid gold," argan oil is highly nourishing and helps tame frizz while providing deep hydration. A known moisturizer for your hair, argan oil protects your hair from everyday damage. Its natural properties aid in reducing breakage and split ends and may help prevent hair loss for thicker, fuller hair.
JOJOBA OIL: Jojoba oil mimics the natural sebum of the scalp, making it great for balancing oil production and adding moisture to the hair.
OLIVE OIL: First cold press olive oil which contains a high level of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants can help seal moisture into the hair. It's especially useful for preventing split ends.
NAJEAU LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER
This Leave-In Conditioner smooths your hair with frizz-fighting hydration and damage repair long after you shower with powerful ingredients that help curb dry hair.
QUINOA: A nutrient-rich grain, can offer several benefits for dry hair. Quinoa is a complete protein source, containing all essential amino acids that can form a protective barrier on the hair shaft, shielding it from environmental damage and reducing moisture loss. This protein content can help strengthen and repair damaged hair, which is common in dry hair. Quinoa is also known to lock in moisture and improve hydration, which is essential for combating dryness and frizz. Quinoa can add a natural shine to the hair, making it appear healthier and less dull.
GREEN TEA: The bountiful panthenol found in green tea extract is a mega-moisturizer for hair, helping smooth strands, prevent split ends, improve texture, and keep hair from losing moisture. Green tea is also rich in antioxidants, particularly catechins. These antioxidants can help protect your hair from damage caused by free radicals, pollution, and UV rays.
