Winter Hair Care: How to Protect your Strands

Protecting your hair from the cold

The winter months change the way our hair responds to the harsh effects of the cold. The cold outside weather combined with dry indoor heat can be tough on the hair. Therefore you need to adapt your daily hair care routine to deal with the constant variations in temperature. So, here are some simple tips and tricks to keep your strands looking shiny and supple throughout winter.

What is a good winter hair care routine?

1. TRIM YOUR ENDS

Your ends become extra vulnerable in winter. Unfortunately, the side effects of the cold snaps are split ends. Schedule regular hair appointments and trim off those split ends to give your strands a chance of remaining healthy.

2. USE A MILD SHAMPOO

The ultimate hair care routine begins with a good shampoo. Use a shampoo that moisturizes and nourishes the hair. A mild shampoo keeps the hair fuller and more robust. Also, if you suffer from scalp irritations, which tend to get worse in the winter, a mild shampoo can provide much-needed relief. Discover our range here.

5. PROTECT YOUR HAIR FROM HEAT

The hair fiber becomes extremely damaged with regular use of straighteners, curling irons, hair dryers… avoid heat styling and protect your hair from these devices. When your strands are already fragile, heat only amplifies the problem, sucking moisture from the hair.

6. HEALTHY NUTRITION

Eating the right foods provides you with protein, nutrients, and vitamins to stay healthy. As tempting as it is to eat junk food during those winter months, think about your body and hair. A balanced diet is especially important in the winter to avoid hair loss and for your hair to remain strong and shiny.
