I was reading Good Housekeeping’s January issue a few days ago and I came across this great article from Boston stylist and hair owner Mario Russo on ways to relieve an itchy scalp this winter. During the winter, scalp dryness is oftentimes unavoidable since the falling temperatures and low humidity can cause a drying effect on the scalp. The tips in the article were extremely helpful for me so, I thought I’d share these easy fixes to help you stop scratching this winter.
Tip #1: Check Ingredients
Tip #2: Nourish with Oils
Massage an omega-3 rich essential oil into your scalp, leave on for a half hour, then work in shampoo before rinsing. Product recommendation: Josie Maran Pure Argan Oil
Tip #3 Avoid Alcohol
Hairstylers that rely on it (especially those used at the roots) can exacerbate itchiness. Opt for products like L’Oreal Paris Everstyle Alcohol-Free Mousse.
I hope you found these winter hair care tips useful!
