Winter Hair Care: How to Protect Your Strands

Protecting your hair from the cold

For many of us the winter months take a toll on our hair which responds much differently to cold, harsh conditions  . The frigid outdoors combined with dry indoor heat can be tough on our strands. We are here to guide you as you will likely need to adapt your daily hair care routine. 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.

3. WEEKLY HAIR CARE MASK

Nurture your strands with a moisturizing mask. A hair mask has deeply conditioning, highly potent ingredients that effectively provide benefits to the hair in less than 20 minutes. They contain proteins that repair and strengthen the hair fiber. Discover our natural hair care range here.

4. ESSENTIAL OILS

Oils repair dry hair and have a nourishing effect. That’s why essential oils are also ideal if you want to give more shine to your hair. Discover our Aromactifs here.

5. PROTECT YOUR HAIR FROM HEAT

The hair fiber becomes extremely damaged with regular use of straighteners, curling irons, hair dryers, etc. Protect your hair by avoiding styling with heat. 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 shedding, and for your hair to remain strong and shiny.
