Tidings! The Holiday Season brings parties, socializing, awkward relatives, and lots and lots of things to drink, like hot toddy’s, spiked eggnog and mulled wine. If you’ve ever drank way too much, you’ll  know that alongside the headache, the shakes and the fear, symptoms also include the skin feeling deflated and dry. You may not notice it much with all the other aches and pains but alcohol’s proclivity for creating dryness extends to your hair, leaving it brittle. Hair needs constant nourishment and your follicles rely on zinc and folic acid to maintain strength. Alcohol can affect these nutrient levels, which can even cause loss and breakage. Obviously the best solution to keep hair healthy is to drink in moderation, but since that’s not a choice many make over the Holidays, pick up a few other healthy hair habits instead. Get details below.  Click for StyleNotes →

In the 90s, my favorite beauty product was a bottle of leave-in conditioner which I used to detangle my hair after washing it with cheap drugstore shampoo. My hair was waist-length back then, and my baby-fine texture looked greasy and limp if I used a rinse-out type conditioner. Since then, I’ve discovered better shampoos, and a number of light-weight conditioners that work effectively with my hair type. I forgot about leave-ins. But recently I’ve started using ARROJO’s cream whip, and I’ve fallen in love with leave-in all over again. A great leave-in does way more than detangle.

’Tis the season for family gatherings, parties, and lots and lots of cocktails. While we all know that one too many spiked eggnogs can leave us subject to puffiness, dryness, and a few other side affects, you may not realize that drinking can negatively affect your locks as well.

Alcohol can affect these nutrient levels, which long term can cause loss and breakage. Obviously the best solution to keep hair healthy is to drink in moderation, but there are a few other good habits  to keep hair healthy this time of year, and beyond.

These days we seem to like our beauty rites and rituals as specialized as possible. Perhaps it’s because beauty editors and brand marketers have, in the search for our undivided attention, created subcategories for every kind of hair type. While there are times when this is helpful, like when you want to tailor a hair cut or cleansing or styling product to your particular needs, the focus on personalized regimens can make us forget that, for great hair every day, there’s certain things pretty much all of us should do the same.
