Conditioning: During the dry winter months, there is little moisture in the air and the hair and scalp tend to dry out more easily. After every shampoo, put a deep conditioner in your hair and leave it in for a minimum of 3-5 minutes. One of Lavette’s personal favorites is Essence Skin-Saving Conditioner by VMV Hypoallergenics , it repairs dry, damaged , brittle hair and volumizes hair while producing a soft, silky texture. Also, use leave-in conditioners and heat protectors to protect the hair from heat styling.
Scalp Care: A healthy scalp can produce healthy hair. If the shampoos and conditioners y0u are using are causing dryness or irritation stop using it. If the problem persists go to a dermatologist to determine the problem. Scalp irritations can cause hair loss.
Roller Setting: If you have medium to long length hair, instead of using a flat or curling iron, set your hair with rollers. The heat from any hair appliance , if used on a consistent basis will leave your hair dry and brittle and more likely to break off and damage.
Silk or Satin Scarf: For any length hair, be sure to tie your hair down at night with a silk or satin scarf. It will help the hair retain its moisture during the night hours. Also, instead of a wool scarf for outside, be sure to stick to satin or silk. Wool and cotton both have the tendency to snap your hair.
