When it comes to healthy hair, it’s not just what you put on your tresses that count — it’s what you put in your body, too. The days of cooler temperatures and fashionably warm hats are near; the combination of brittleness from the sun and lack of moisture from the chlorine/saltwater can give you unlimited bad hair days. The colder months can be brutal, and not just on your heating bill…our hair takes a beating too!
A diet that’s centered on fresh fruits and vegetables, fish, moderate amounts of red meat and whole grains is beneficial for both your hair and your body. Eating a healthy diet will keep your scalp healthy and moisturized, eliminating your nippy weather hair woes. Start your pre-Autumn hair care prep with these 4 tips to maintain healthy hair growth during the chill:
Drink lots of water. If you don’t hydrate your body, your hair follicles will not be healthy enough to produce the keratin you need to grow healthy hair.
Drink green tea. The more green tea you drink the more DHT blockers you get into your system and the more you reduce your chances of your hair shedding.
Massage your scalp. Just as little as 5-minutes at night stimulates your scalp, increases blood flow and can increase the rate of hair growth.
Consume protein. Protein will help your hair follicles produce keratin and give your strands strength.

Love Your Hair,
The “moisture” in every moisturizing product is water; the goal is for the product to deliver water. Enhance the moisture that your hair receives through steaming!
There are many benefits to steam; great way to get moisture into low porosity coarse hair, increases moisture levels in the scalp to diminish dandruff, prevents shrinkage and increases blood flow to the scalp promoting hair growth. Most people steam because it’s a great way to open up the hair follicles to receive all the benefits of deep conditioning treatments.
You can start steaming right now, at home easily. Start with freshly washed hair that has been detangled, generously apply Jane Carter Solution Nutrient Replenishing Conditioner and follow the steps below:
- Soak a clean towel under water.
- Place wet towel in microwave for 2 minutes or until very warm.
- Wring loosely; wrap towel around your head, covering all of your hair.
- Cover towel with a plastic cap.
- Sit under hooded or bonnet dryer for 30 minutes to 2 hours.
Rinse hair, apply Hydrate Quench for an extra dose of moisture and to strengthen hair with soy protein and panthenol. Follow up with Hydrate Seal & Shine to lock in moisture and seal hair cuticle to retain moisture; style as usual.
Tip – Another easy way to treat yourself to more moisture is by placing a humidifier in your bedroom which will add moisture back into the air and your hair while you sleep.
Love Your Hair,
Have you ever wondered how Jane Carter Solution came to be? What was the journey that led me to create a hair care line? Where do I start…
It was all a dream until 1982; with extreme excitement and unique philosophy about hair, I opened Breezin’ Hair Salon! We were known for our innovative techniques and dedication to caring for hair, but having multicultural staff was certainly the highlight. There were no other salons in the area that could service every woman or man that walked in the door, REGARDLESS of ethnicity. We were cutting edge and obsessed with finding ways to condition and moisturize hair for healthy maintenance!
