Winter can be a stressful time of year. Never mind the increase in your heating bill or impending overhaul of your skin care regime – your strands take a beating during this season, too. When the leaves have finished falling and the temperature drops, our strands often suffer. Not only is it colder and drier, you’re also dealing with static, frizz, and an overall lack of luster. That’s sure not going to make the holiday party attire cut! Lifeless locks won’t be adorning your head this season. Here’s how to prevent those winter woes:
Moisture is a Must
Just in case you haven’t heard this enough, we’ll say it again: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! The colder weather and indoor heating can dry out your strands and even leave you with a dry, flaky scalp. To combat this, treat your hair to a deep conditioning treatment once a week. Reconstructing Masque will lock moisture back into your hair, leaving it soft and shiny – just how it should be.
Fight Frizz with Leave-In Conditioner
Along with falling leaves and first snowfalls, there’s another telltale sign that winter has arrived – static-y clouds of strands that float upwards anytime a hairbrush is near. This is often a result of dryness. While running a dryer sheet through your hair will fix the problem temporarily, try hydrating with a leave-in conditioner such as Super Comb Prep & Protect.
Dry Hair Thoroughly
We know getting out of the house on time in the morning can be a challenge in itself. But if you want to bypass breakage, take the time to completely dry your hair before stepping outside. Cold air will cause your damp hair shaft to expand, putting you at risk for breakage and color fade. If your hair takes forever to dry, make Blow Dry Lotion your new best friend. It will cut your dry time by 30-50%!
Kick Dullness to the Curb
Don’t settle for flat, lifeless hair. The secret weapon to fighting dullness and restoring life into your mane is all in the product. Volumizing shampoos, moisturizing conditioners and anti-frizz serums can make a world of difference. Just stay away from products containing sulfates, sodium chloride, or parabens – those are not your friends!
