Unfortunately, thanks to the massive dip in humidity, very few people are able to escape the perils of dry hair during the wintertime. That is, unless you take action before the winter chill really takes hold, of course! Here are our tips for avoiding a straw-like mess and enjoying beautiful, healthy hair all year round.
Change the Products that You Use
The shampoo and conditioner that saw you through the warmer months probably won’t do the trick in winter. You’ll want to switch to new products that promise richer, added moisture – ask your hair consultant for the best winter treatment products.
Invest In a Hair Masque from Time to Time
Hair masques condition your hair from root to tip and will really grab on to ensure longer lasting smoothness. Try your best to treat your locks to a hair masque at least once every fortnight. And guys, this really isn’t just for the ladies! You stand to benefit too!
Don’t Wash Your Hair as Often
Yes, it’s true that too much hair washing can strip your crowning glory of its natural oils. Once every couple of days should be more than enough.
Get Plenty of Trims
Damaged hair is never a good look, and can become an even bigger problem during wintertime thanks to the woollen winter hats and beanies that most of us love to wear.
Book an appointment with our professional hair technician every six weeks for a trim. Oh yes, and if you can’t say goodbye to your favourite hat, but you really don’t want to have to deal with classic hat-head after it has been removed, simply wrap your hair in a silk scarf before putting on the beanie. It’ll help to reduce the damage and keep the static to a minimum – be careful not to go overboard with the wraps and hats though, we know it gets cold but there’s a limit to covering up!
If dry hair isn’t quite the problem, and it’s hair loss that is really getting you down, winter is as good a time as any to seek treatment and explore your options.
