You don't head out for a run in January wearing shorts and a tank. You shouldn't rely on warm-weather standbys for hair, either. Dry conditions call for a gentler shampoo. "Look for kinds that are packed with oil or a humectant, like panthenol; these often contain milder ingredients that won't strip strands," says Ni'Kita Wilson, a cosmetic chemist in Fairfield, New Jersey. Massage shampoo into your scalp and roots only where hair is dirtiest, then rinse it through the rest of your strands to clean them (don't rub!). This helps protect the lower, more fragile part of hair.
