While we are certainly rejoicing in the fact that we are finally easing into winter, the change in weather isn’t always great for our hair. Winters in the UAE are certainly no match for the freezing winters experienced in other parts of the world, but there is a definite shift in climate that happens over the last few months of the year. Colder temperatures and drier air can wreak havoc on your strands, but thankfully, there are ways to avoid that.
Along with adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet and exercising regularly, there are a few other tricks you can use to ensure your hair stays full and healthy during the cooler months. Let’s discuss some of biggest cool-weather hair concerns and how to combat them.
Hair loss always seems to be a major concern for residents of UAE, but changes in weather combined with a busy (and sometimes stressful!) winter schedule can sometimes exacerbate the issue. If you’re finding more hair in your brush or shower than usual, it might be time to look into some gentle, yet effective treatments to combat hair loss or thinning. Revivogen Scalp Therapy is a heavy-duty scalp treatment that reduces the production of DHT, a hormone that can lead to hair loss. Another great hair loss treatment, Davines Energizing Gel, works specifically to combat seasonal hair loss. Containing stimulating caffeine, protective beta-glucans and anti-oxidant proteins, this gel will slow down hair loss while instantly boosting thin or fine hair.
Slightly drier air and cooler temperatures might sneak up on us, but we can always tell the change in weather when our strands become a little drier and duller. The women of this region have been oiling their scalps and hair for centuries; massaging the scalp increases blood circulation and can lead to thicker hair growth, while applying natural oils to your hair can repair and nourish your strands. Philip B Rejuvenating Oil is an intensive hair and scalp treatment oil that contains a nourishing blend of olive oil, sesame seed oil, sweet almond oil, and jojoba oil to repair damage and prevent breakage. If a hair mask is more up your alley, SACHAJUAN Hair Repair will moisturize, repair and smooth your hair in just five to ten minutes.
You may also find that your hair takes longer to dry during the winter, increasing the need for heat tools. Protecting your hair from heat tools will not only minimize the risk of damage, but will also keep your hair style in place for longer. For low maintenance gals, Rahua Elixir is a 100% natural, luxe hair oil that will rebuild and repair damaged hair. Just one to three drops will smooth your hair cuticle and prevent damage from heat styling. For those of you that like your hair a little more polished, Phyto Phytokeratine Repairing Serum for Damaged Lengths and Ends contains Brazilian palm oil, hydrating hyaluronic acid and botanical keratin to repair, moisturize and protect strands from heat styling and environmental damage.
