5 Tips for Winter Scalp Care

Have you really given your scalp the TLC it needs this winter? Even if you live in a destination like Los Angeles, where the shift in seasons from fall to winter may seem minor, the seasonal change still calls for a major skin care overhaul. Dry weather leads to dry skin, and dryness-prone skin requires added maintenance. Your scalp, a significant part of your skin, is no different.

If you're like most people, your scalp probably isn't getting the attention it deserves, especially in these dry winter months. We'll help you change that. We may be well into the new year, but it's never too late to resolve to make healthy changes. Here are a few ways you can easily keep your skin and scalp healthy in winter (and beyond).

#1 JUST ADD TEA TREE OIL

Tea Tree Oil, or melaleuca alternifolia oil, has many helpful properties—including the ability to help reduce irritation, flakiness and itchiness. Since all the products in our Tea Tree Collection contain tea tree oil, they're natural choices for helping with itchy, dry skin and scalp in winter months.

#2 DEAL WITH DRY, ITCHY, FLAKY SCALP

Winter weather only exasperates conditions like dryness, itchiness and flaking. Thankfully there are easy ways to help. Our best option? Tea Tree Special Shampoo®. There's a reason why it's our #1 best seller! Outside of its signature tingle that leaves a cooling sensation on the scalp, it's our best shampoo for those prone to scalp buildup.

#3 GIVE YOUR SCALP A LITTLE EXTRA CARE

If your scalp demands more TLC, press the reset button with Tea Tree Hair and Scalp Treatment®, which will help revive dry hair and scalp by replenishing moisture. Packed with soy protein, panthenol and shea butter, this hydrating hair mask will help soothe troubled skin post-shower.

#4 CARE SPECIFICALLY FOR CURLY HAIR (AND YOUR SCALP!)

In drier months, curly hair can especially use a little extra love. And while a good moisturizing shampoo and hair care regimen is important for curly hair year-round, it's especially key in winter. Replenish moisture to dry, textured strands while simultaneously cleansing and soothing the scalp with Tea Tree's Lavender Mint Moisturizing Shampoo™, designed specifically for curly hair.

#5 REPAIR ALL HAIR + SKIN TYPES

A healthy scalp pairs well with healthy, hydrated hair and skin. Another great product to have in your winter arsenal? The Tea Tree Hemp Restoring Conditioner & Body Lotion. This champion multi-tasker not only hydrates skin with nourishing hemp seed oil, but also can be applied to hair after shampooing to help balance moisture and prevent dry winter weather from wreaking hair havoc.

PREVENTATIVE SCALP CARE PICKS

Want great preventative picks? The Scalp Care Anti-Thinning Tonic does so much more than just help prevent hair fallout. This preventative tonic, and products in the full Scalp Care line, are infused with our exclusive Regeniplex® botanical blend, that helps stimulate the scalp and create an ideal environment for thick, healthy hair. So, grab the tonic and promote healthy scalp choices all year round.
