Tips for Manageable Winter Hair

Winter hat hair isn’t just a woman’s issue, men also must deal with the unfortunate effects of winter conditions. Here are a few tips to combat static and ill-effects of winter weather.

  • Moisturize – Whether you use a leave-in or simply condition while showering, you should always maintain a regular moisturizing regimen during the cold dry winter months to keep away static.
  • Keep it Short – Shorter men’s cuts are great for tucking under a winter cap without the unpleasant “hat-hair” side-effects.
