Winter is upon us and officially here! Winter brings dry, brittle, flat hair. YAY! It’s not really that exciting…. Luckily all you need is a small survival kit to ensure your hair remains gorgeous throughout the cold season. Here are some tips to make your hair winter proof.
1) Keep It Moisturized
One of the first things you will start to notice about your hair in the winter is that it may feel, and even look dry. During these cold month the moisture level in the air is very low, which will result in your hair lacking moisture. The best way to guarantee that your remains silky and hydrated is to switch to a shampoo and conditioner especially formulated for dry hair. This will replenish any moisture that has been lost as well as maintain the moisture levels in your hair.
2) Stay Dry!
Leaving the house with a wet head in the winter is a big no-no! Not only is it bad for your health but also the health of your hair. If your hair is holding onto water and the temperature is below freezing, the water in your hair can crystallize and begin to freeze which will make your hair more prone to breakage. So if there’s time, blow dry your hair!
3) Cover It Up
Between the cold, the wind and the snow, the wintery elements are no friend of hair. It’s necessary to shield your locks to keep them looking fresh. Whether it’s a hat, a hood or a scarf, there are options out there for everyone and every style.
4) Beat the Cling
By far the biggest problem we have with our hair at this time of year is the dreaded static cling. While keeping dryer sheets in your pocket is a quick fix in a pinch, there’s no solution like being prepared. Try a static spray which will instantly eliminate static with just a small spritz. Keep your eyes out for travel size products, which are perfect to throw in your purse or keep in your glove box.
5) Start at the Root
Having a dry, flaky scalp is a concern for many people throughout the year but this problem gets significantly worse during the dryer months. If you suffer from dry scalp, the only relief is to nourish and hydrate the foundation of your hair. Try a Shampoo that will hydrate, exfoliate and soothe your scalp.
