Dry hair is a common complaint among women when there are seasonal changes. Especially in the winter, when the hair is exposed to
extreme changes in temperature, the hair can be leeched of its natural moisture. This moisture needs to be restored, and the best way
to do it is to use a humectant-based conditioner to help the hair attract and retain moisture.
Another good way to moisturize the hair is through the use of Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs). The scalp produces its own EFA in the form
of sebum, which is produced by the hair follicle. However, when the hair grows longer, it becomes harder for the sebum to be distributed
naturally along the hair shaft. On of the easiest EFAs to find (and one of the best) is Safflower Oil.
You can use Safflower oil to replace the missing EFA in longer hair by placing one or two drops of the oil in your palms and rubbing
them together to spread the oil evenly. There should only be enough oil to make the skin of your palms shine. Use the palms of your
hands to apply the oil to the ends of your dry hair by scrunching the hair and combing the fingers through the hair to distribute the
oil as evenly as possible. The oil will be absorbed and will help to restore condition of your hair.
