Are you ready for winter? You may not be, but it is almost here! Even if you aren’t ready for the drop in temperature, and the rain and snow, you may want to get your hair prepped for the cold weather. The cold and dry weather has been known to make your hair brittle, dry and damaged. To avoid this, there are things you can do to prep your hair for winter. Here are some of the best tips we’ve found:
- Get more moisture, stat. For all hair types, with the exception of very oily and fine hair, you’ll want to increase your hair’s moisture level for winter. This will not only reduce damage but reduce frizz and it will make your hair look healthier and more beautiful. Switch to a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner and start using a conditioning treatment or mask at least once a week. Don’t forget to stay hydrated and drink lots of water because this may help your hair stay moisturized as well.
- Try our Deep Hydration Volumizing Conditioner for added moisture and volume, perfect for winter hair issues.
- Avoid using heat and washing and styling your hair every day. This can prevent damage.
- As winter approaches, you may notice your hair being more prone to static electricity. This is very common but can be annoying. Look for products with a wheat amino to help reduce static. There are also hair brushes you can buy that can help cut down on static as well. If you find your hair getting staticky anyway, a quick fix is to use a dryer sheet or a little bit of lotion to smooth down your hair.
- If your hair is becoming flat and limp, use a hairspray to set your style after you blow dry and style it with volume in mind.
- Lastly, don’t forget to schedule trims more often. You’ll want to get your hair cut more often because split ends and damaged hair are more common in winter months. Your stylist can also help you get products or give you styling tricks that can ease common winter hair woes, like static and flat, dull hair.
