Sure, summer brings frizz to ruin your hairstyle, but winter brings its own set of hair problems. Dry air, low temps, and freezing blasts of air wreak havoc on hair in their own ways. Fight back with the right products to keep your hair healthy this season.
If you’ve got dry scalp:
Thanks to low temps and dry winter air, dry scalp and dandruff are common hair problems this season. To soothe itching and those unsightly dry flakes, try a shampoo and conditioner combo made with tea tree oil, which hydrates and treats itchiness in one step.

If your hair’s dry and brittle:
Now might be the time top upgrade your styling products to more conditioning options. In addition to a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, try a lightweight hair oil for hydration without weighing hair down. After washing, pat hair dry with a towel to prevent frizz. When damp, mist oil throughout hair (especially concentrating on ends) and follow up with a hydrating styling cream.

If you have hat head:
Carry a dryer sheet with you to stop static (really!). After removing your hat, quickly rub a dryer sheet down along your hairline to keep frizz at bay. Bonus: these sheets fold up for convenient carrying in your purse.
