1. HYDRATE YOUR SCALP Fight wintertime flakiness with this easy treatment: “Massage in five to 10 drops of jojoba oil, and sleep with it in overnight — it’ll balance the pH of your scalp. Wash it out in the morning,” says Laura Boton, owner of Sine Qua Non Salon in Chicago. Try Desert Essence 100% Pure Jojoba Oil . No worries: It won’t leave your pillow greasy.

2. SKIP A SHAMPOO — OR SULFATES Detergents can contribute to dryness, especially if you have fine hair. Shampooing less often is really the best option in winter — or, use a shampoo  sulfates free.

3. DON’T GO OUT WITH WET HAIR It may not lead to a cold, but it can cause split ends, says stylist Nicholas Penna Jr., owner of SalonCapri in Newton and Dedham, MA.

4. CHOOSE THE RIGHT HAT FABRIC Wool can create tangles, and nylon can cause static, says Rodney Cutler, founder of Cutler/Redken Salons: “Stick to hats with silk liners, which keep hair smooth.” And choose a loose fit so as not to put a dent in your hairstyle.

5. STAY SMOOTH Tote a purse-size hairspray in case you do have static; its alcohol will neutralize the charge. Or try Bumble and Bumble Shine On Finishing Spray, which both enhances shine and tames flyaways. If you prefer an alcohol-free option, try a pinch of grooming cream.
