Prevent Dull, Dry & Damaged Hair In Winter

Healthy Winter HairIt is common for many of us to spend much of our time in centrally heated rooms during winter. For this reason, if possible, it’s a good idea to let your hair air dry and limit your use of tools like dryers and flat irons. Still, be aware that going outside with wet hair in cold weather can cause your hair to freeze and break, so try protecting your hair with a cap.

Additionally, to keep your hair glossy and healthy during winter it is important to prevent dryness and we recommend you to use a deep conditioner plus a leave in treatment.  It is important you are giving your hair as much moisture that is needed. Consistently hydrating hair ensures hair does not dry out and reduces the risk of hair breakage. Conditioning your hair after shampooing should be an important part of your hair routine. 


Adopt a Healthy Diet

Healthy Winter HairEating a healthy diet full of vitamins is the best way to keep your hair and scalp looking and feeling healthy.  Diet also plays a significant role in combating dull hair, so ensure your diet is getting you all the minerals and vitamins your hair needs – in particular,  A, C & D, protein and omega 3. 

Also make sure you drink plenty of water to keep your hair and scalp hydrated.



Trim Hair to Beat Split Ends In Winter 

Whether you have long or short hair, winter weather can make the ends of your hair dry and brittle. The constant brushing of hair on woollen hats in winter can also cause split ends. The surest way to deal with split ends is getting a regular trim. Additionally, if you can tolerate the cold, rinse your hair with cold water, this helps the cuticles to stay flat and close, which makes them shiny.
