Let’s face it: winter is probably not your child’s hair’s BFF. From keeping hair healthy and shiny throughout the dryness of winter, your kids can be left to deal with some pretty frustrating hair issues come wintertime—especially wild static and dry, itchy scalps. To help you prevent these cold weather woes, Cozy Friedman, the founder of SO COZY hair care line for kids explains how to keep your child’s hair and scalp happily hydrated and ecstatically static-free.
It’s All About Hydration
The dry winter climate and central heating combine to create a static monster that makes your kid’s hair (and yours) stand on end. The solution? Keeping it deeply moisturized. “The temperature contrast between central heating and outdoor chill causes extreme drying and static during the winter,” explains Friedman. “Turn on the humidifier and use ultra-moisturizing hair products.” To replenish your children’s parched strands, spritz on a leave-in conditioner (like SO COZY Detangler & Leave-in Conditioner) to dry or wet clean hair after their normal shampoo and conditioner routine.
Fix The Flatness
Your kids’ normally stylish hair can fall flat in the harsh winter months — but don’t put his or her style on freeze. Instead, use hydrating styling products that prevent dry, flat hair and effectively tames frizz to make hair manageable and smooth. “Your children’s hair often becomes especially flat and less perky during the winter,” Friedman says. “Combine that with dryness, and you’ve got a flyaway mess on your hands.” Not sure where to start? Well, the SO COZY Styling Cream is formulated with a rich blend of vitamin E, panthenol, aloe vera, silk amino acids and kiwi extracts to hydrate, fortify and nourish hair all through the cold.
Shampoo Your Hair Less Frequently During Winter
“The dry, harsh climate and wind outside and the central heating inside causes your little one’s scalp and hair to majorly flake and itch,” explains Friedman. To keep hair from drying out and little scalps from flaking, reduce the frequency of shampoos, since this strips the hair of moisture. Switching to a rich, hydrating shampoo, like SO COZY 3-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner + Body Wash, which is formulated with hydrolyzed wheat protein and Aloe Vera extract, will help soothe sensitive scalps and protect children’s hair.
Winter might not make styling your little sweetie’s hair any easier, but it doesn’t have to be. By having the right styling products on hand, your child’s hair can become more manageable and beautiful— which is just what you need when you’re trying to get them out the door and to school on time.
