OK, so you really should be looking after your hair all year round, but winter does bring its own specific challenges. Wind, cold weather and heating all play havoc with our tresses, leaving hair dry, dull and frizzy as hair becomes dehydrated.
While we may be able to cover our unmanageable winter hair with a hat while outside, this is the season of office parties and Christmas festivities so we want to be looking and feeling fabulous.
The good news is, that with the right care, you can tame the winter frizz.
Our top tips for great winter hair
1. Keep it clean
You will no doubt have been told at some point to reduce the frequency with which you wash your hair as drying and styling can increase dryness. However, a clean and healthy scalp promotes strong hair and strength is key to beautiful hair.
2. Cover up
Harsh winds and cold weather damage hair, especially as we go from cold to hot and back again. Investing in a great hat not only protects your hair, it keeps you cosy and warm.
3. Invest in protection
As our hair becomes dry it requires more styling. Increased use of hairdryers, straighteners and curling irons all strip moisture from our hair resulting in dry and brittle hair. Add a little Moroccan Oil to your hair care routine to nourish hair and reduce drying time.
4. Trim and Treat
Make a point of having regular trims through autumn and winter to help keep hair in tip top condition. If your hair is already showing signs of damage why not make the most of the intensive salon only treatments available such as
Olaplex works on a molecular level to seek out broken bonds in the hair that are caused by chemical, thermal, and mechanical damage and actively rebuilds compromised hair.
Have you noticed that stores are more heavily promoting hand creams and moisturisers at this time of year? This is not simply just because they make great Christmas gifts. The fact is we use more moisturiser during the autumn and winter months. Hair cells require moisture too. Selecting a great hair care system can make a massive difference to the molecular structure and overall appearance of our hair.
