If hair is not properly treated during the brutal winter months it can look lifeless. No one wants to deal with brittle hair and split ends! The good news is, it’s easier than you think to maintain flawless locks during the dry winter season. Here’s how to keep your hair looking nourished with just a few simple and easy tips.
Condition, Condition, Condition: The cold winter months strip your hair of its natural oils, causing it to appear dry. Using deep conditioners and hair oils can strengthen your locks during the winter months and keep your hair healthy and moisturized. But, if you have fine hair, only condition the ends. Regardless, moisturizing your hair during the winter months is key to avoiding breakage.
Embrace heat protector: Beware of heat styling tools during the winter months. If you can’t ditch your straightener, opt for ceramic plated tools since they disperse heat evenly and quickly. Also, always use a heat protector on the hair before styling. Protecting your hair will leave it looking super silky and soft.
Use a nourishing shampoo: Nothing is more embarrassing or uncomfortable than an itchy scalp. The dry, cold winter air may be contributing to those embarrassing dandruff flakes. To prevent this, use a sulfate and paraben free shampoo that will lock in moisture and alleviate that itchy scalp feel.
Avoid sun damage: The days might be shorter, but you should still consider protecting your locks from the sun’s rays. Oil-based sprays, styling creams, and serums will protect your hair from sun damage, and make the hair follicles less prone to breakage.
