Not wearing a hat can have a negative impact on your hair

In winter, hair and scalp require special attention. Why? Because we don't always cover them with hats, and our hair remains unprotected from external influences. Not wearing a hat, synthetic clothing, dry indoor air, and insufficient care can lead to hair damage, loss, and thinning.

Let's not forget about the internal factors that accompany us throughout the year: lack of sleep, stress, vitamin D deficiency, and an imbalance in the diet that lacks essential vitamins and minerals. All these aspects contribute to additional weakening and damage to the hair, hair care specialist Maryna Vasylenko told OBOZ.UA.

According to the expert, not wearing a hat can negatively affect your hair due to low temperatures that disrupt the nutrition of the scalp and hair follicles.

"This, in turn, can slow down hair growth and cause a number of problems. Synthetic hats create a barrier to air circulation, causing dandruff, irritation, and even hair loss," Vasylenko explained.

The hair care specialist advised using a humidifier in rooms with constant air conditioning. It will protect hair and skin from drying out. If this is not possible, you can use thermal water. This is a universal tool that is never superfluous, Vasylenko added.

How to keep your hair beautiful and healthy in winter:

  • Choose hats made of natural materials.
  • Hide your hair under your clothes, avoiding external factors (wind, cold).
  • Avoid going outside with wet hair.
  • Use only a warm air setting when blow-drying your hair.
  • Avoid using a hot iron on wet hair.
  • Use all the stages of hair care: shampoo, conditioner, mask, and a product that does not need to be rinsed off.

"In winter, hair needs special care that combines nutrition and moisturizing. Add a moisturizing balm and mask to your home care routine, and be sure to use a product with a creamy texture that doesn't need to be rinsed off. These products contain many components that nourish, moisturize and protect hair from external influences," Vasylenko said.

She also advised choosing the right shampoo. "The shampoo that suited you before will most likely need to be changed in the fall and winter. Choose it according to the type of scalp, given that in winter it becomes more sensitive," the expert summarized.
