In winter it's difficult to maintain a constant beauty of the skin and hair. But, we buy winter creams for the skin in stores, and for the hair we do little. If the procedure of the hair care is not much different from hair care in the spring, you will make a big mistake. Especially if you don't like to wear a hat in the cold weather it will be time to take action!

There are some reasons to attend the healthy of hair in winter. It's the lack of sun, the temperature drops, the vitamin deficiency, the stress and the frost. The worst thing from this list is the cold weather. In the cold weather the blood vessels are narrow and the intake of the blood to the hair slows, thus the hairs don't receive the necessary essential elements. Always wear a hat on the street, and indoors necessarily take off. The hat should be made of natural fabrics. Don't use plastic hairbrush, the hair from the cold become simply unmanageable.

In winter hair are dehydrated, they need in the moistening. For this always use a shampoo with a conditioner. It will be better if the conditioner is the intense action. Don't forget to use masks. The consist of the masks must include vitamins A, C and E. Vitamin A improves the elasticity and shine of the hair, accelerates their growth. Vitamin E neutralizes harmful substances, it's especially important if you live in the city. Vitamin C helps to strengthen the hair.

Also the condition of the hair depends on your lifestyle and how you eat. In winter, as we know, there are the vitamin deficiencies, diseases, because of which we take antibiotics. In this period, we need the zinc, iron, manganese. The lack of sun adduces that we often have a depression and stresses and vitamin B breaks down in the body. Lack of vitamin B adduces the failure of the endocrine and circulatory systems, as a consequence, the blood vessels of a head are constricted.

For solution of these problems you should take vitamin preparations. Also, you can pay attention to the complexes for the growth and strengthening of hair, which are presented by the cosmetics and pharmaceutical companies.

If you don't want to drink tablets, you will have to pay attention to the food.You must eat enough protein foods. It's a meat, eggs, a fish, a cheese, etc. They include the phosphorus and vitamin B. Every day eat a few walnuts. The milk products must be presented on your table always. Prepare salads t ucked unrefined sunflower oil. All these products are necessary for healthy of the hair.
