Winter is here to stay but your hair doesn’t have to suffer from it! The cold air from outside and the heated air indoors strip your hair from its moisture leaving it dry, brittle, and causing breakage. Here are some tips to keep your hair moisturized and to avoid dry winter hair!
Wash Less- When you wash your hair less, more moisture can be kept in your hair. Not washing your hair often might make some hair feel oily so try using dry shampoo if your hair feels too greasy. Comb the dry shampoo from the root of your hair to about an inch down so the comb can remove any of the product build-up that may cause dryness in your hair. Also, don’t forget to lather the end of your hair in oils. The thicker and drier the hair, the more oil it will take. Oil is used only near the ends of your hair to keep moisture locked and prevent split ends.
Boar Bristle Brush- Boar bristle brushes not only help circulation but it can help limp and dry hair as well! Just brush your hair twice a day, once in the morning and once at night to keep your hair looking moisturized and smooth.
Layer with Care- Is your hair getting knotted up with all of your scarves and layers? This is due to the friction caused by layering your clothes over your hair. Before putting on your scarves or winter sweaters, part your hair down the middle as if you were making low ponytails, then pull your hair towards the front before you wrap your scarf around your neck.
Condition- Deep condition regularly during the winter, whether you get it done at a salon or do it yourself, this treatment will nourish and strengthen your hair since it will help retain moisture and shine.
Clear Gloss- If you want a quick fix to get instant shine on your hair, get a clear gloss. Ask your hairstylist which would work for your hair better at your next blow-out or trim. It will extend the life of your current hair color and seal moisture in the cuticles of your hair.
