The heavier clothing you typically wear in the winter to stay warm is often made with harsher materials (like wool) that can snag on your hair and cause it to break. So it's important to be mindful of how your clothing can affect your hair.
"One of the most significant things I notice with my clients in the winter is the amount of breakage on the backs of their heads," Taylor said. "This is due to the materials of warm winter clothes like scarves, hats, hoodies, sweaters. The fabrics are really harsh on the hair, pulling on the strands and causing them to break off, particularly at the nape."
To prevent this from happening, Taylor recommends using a silk or satin scarf to create a barrier between your hair and your scarf or sweater. "Honestly, avoid wool altogether, unless your hair is wrapped in silk," she added.
