Though we are still in fall, many people may start to notice changes in how their hair and scalp respond with the cooler temperatures. To help your hair transition into winter care, there are a few things you should do to keep hair healthy and strong. With this in mind, we at Hed2Toe Salon & Luxury Consignment Boutique would like to share some winter hair care tips.
How Often Should I Wash My Hair in the Winter
Your hair and scalp can easily dry out since shampoo will strip your hair of natural oils. Try shampooing less as the months get colder and you suffer from a dry and itchy scalp in the winter time. Itching scalps and embarrassing flakes can be reduced by shampooing less to keep your hair and scalp hydrated. The natural oils will have more time to travel down the hair shafts which can address any static concerns as well.
Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment
Be sure to add more hair treatments to your routine when winter rolls around no matter what type of hair you have. Your hair dries out more because there is not a lot of moisture in the air. To replace that lost moisture, it is important to use different hair treatments. Use a good conditioner, and if necessary, invest in hydration or moisturizing masks once a week.
Pros of Leave-In Conditioner
Consider using leave-in conditioner in the event your hair gets more static to it. As an extra defense against static by using a leave-in conditioner, keep your hair well-conditioned and hydrated. You can avoid the nasty static better through the of keeping your hair well hydrated.
Dyeing Hair Darker in Winter
Try to avoid dying your hair blonde during the winter. Your hair can become worse off if you are during the winter by dying your hair a platinum color since it is extremely damaging to your hair. During the winter apply a semi-permanent hair color that is darker if you love your blonde hair. This allows you to switch back to your platinum color without causing more damage while keeping your hair healthier in the winter.
Natural Hair Bun & Braid Styles
Also, to help keep your hair healthier in the winter, cut back on using heat-styling tools as much as possible. It is especially important in the winter, though you should avoid too much heat all year long. Leaving you with breakage and split ends, the heat and dry air will create more damage. Learn some styling methods to give your hair different styles with braids, twists, and buns.
Hydrate Hair Overnight
At night use oils and serums to give your hair an extra boost of hydration. To keep from looking like you have oily hair, keep these products in your hair overnight and shower in the morning. Throughout the winter, this is a great way to keep your hair hydrated and healthy.
