Default Humidifiers and Dry Hair

Hey guys, I was thinking of buying a humidifier...it's so dry here...for example, I just turned my heat on b/c it was kind of cold last night, and now my skin is itching. Also, when it drops to around 60, it's so dry that my fingers get all prune-like, even if I have not recently taken a shower! Crazy right?

But I digress...so have any of you used a humidifier and noticed a difference in hair health regarding dryness? Seems like there have been a lot of posts up about dryness lately...can't wait for spring!

I remember reading an article in Essence mag a few years back about looking after natural hair in the winter and it recommemded using a humidifier so i guess its a good idea. I also remember considering getting one, but its so wet here in the UK anyway that i didn't see the point!

I run a humidifier on both levels of my home but do more for my and my son's dry sinuses than for my hair.

I never have dry hair issues so there could be some benefits that I didn't know I was reaping. hmmm!!!

I would definitely reccmmend a humidfier. I have that horrible radiator heat in my building and on the nights that I forget to use my humidifier, my hair is noticeably drier - even with protecting it with a satin scarf.

If the air is dry, then the face skin will be also dry. As a woman, I am so be carefully for my face skin. So I bought a Portable Fresh Air Humidifier which is ideal for travel, home and office using. Keep the air fresh.
