It’s that time of year again when the wind is picking up, the air is getting drier, and people are being afflicted by static shock when they put on their coats and hats. And for some Rochester, MN, men, it’s also the time of year to struggle with an itchy, dry scalp. While retaining body heat is a valiant goal, even soft hats can leave your scalp feeling itchy and irritated at the end of the day. At MenSalon, we provide hair and skin care support to help your scalp feel hydrated and comfortable regardless of the weather outside.

Winter Weather on Skin

Minnesota winters are notoriously hard on people’s skin, thanks to a combination of bitter temperatures; strong wind; dry air; and abrasive, moisture-wicking fabrics. Together, these factors can be brutal for men who tend to wear their hair short, have dry skin, or spend a good amount of time in the great outdoors.

Dry Scalp

A dry scalp can be treated with a variety of remedies, and sometimes finding the perfect solution takes some trial and error. For some men, introducing daily or weekly deep conditioners into their routine of hair and skin care is enough to mitigate the worst of the dry scalp symptoms. For others, oils, pomades, protective styles, or creams may be the better option for long-term relief.


At MenSalon, we can help you determine how to best introduce dry scalp treatments into your daily routines, or we can even arrange deep-conditioning spa sessions with you to help soothe your scalp and encourage your skin to take some time to recover. Depending on the extent of your scalp’s condition or damage, we can also help you decide whether it’s time to chat with a dermatologist. We understand that each scalp is different, and our stylists are here to help you find the perfect skin care solution for your individual needs.
