By the time I arrive at work, I appear to have frozen icicles hanging from my head. Thawing my locks over a steaming cup of coffee opens my nostrils, and restores my nose hairs, but my crowning glory has taken leave of absence until spring.
The winter buzz in the salon… what’s a girl to do with this awful hair dilemma?
The understanding of the transference of electrons from one object to another is not going to fix the problem: though it might help us to understand why we are confronted with this struggle winter after winter. Who cares why? Just fix it!
Well ladies, there is no magic trick to this remedy, but there are a few things that will offer a bit more control until your hair returns in the spring.
• Pillow cases of high quality cotton, or silk will lessen the friction and static when you first wake up
• Using a hat or scarf, while out in the cold, made of cotton or silk, rather than artificial materials, usually consisting of some type of nylon product, will help your hair from looking totally flat
• Lots of hair care products, leave in conditioners, mousse, gels, and hairspray, will coat the hair and give it substance against the dry air
• Extensions, or add on hairs are a great way to offer more texture and bulk to fly away hair
• Using ion blow dryers and ceramic irons are a big help
• Frequent conditioning treatments will combat the dryness
• A humidifier in your bedroom to combat the dry forced air heat
A wig or a gypsy scarf might sound like the best solution, but you might just have to opt out for a new style to get you through winter until your locks return.
Unfortunately there is not a single solution that works, though applying the suggestions above will offer much help. I will, however, tell you the one solution I resort to each year, and I promise it works wonders on your hair: A trip to the Bahamas!
