5 Winter Hair Care Tips

 

Everyones hair needs a little more care attention in the Winter to avoid drying out and getting damaged once the weather changes, here are our top 5 tips to keep your hair looking and feeling amazing through out the Winter.

  1. First up, it may sound obvious but don’t go outside with wet hair.  Wet hair is much more delicate than dry hair and the cold will make the water swell inside the hair shaft and can cause internal damage to the hair, which will affect the life of your colour as well as the condition of your hair.
  2. Regular trims!  We know we say it all the time but in the Winter regular trims are important.  Your hair will get blasted by the environment with the cold and the wind which causes damage and split ends, so make sure you are getting your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks.
  3. Add a weekly intensive treatment to your hair care routine.  Central heating can really dry hair out so replacing the moisture lost in the winter is essential to keeping your hair looking good. Our favourite is Alterna’s Caviar Moisture Masque it’s so luxurious and leaves your hair super soft, shiny and moisturised.
  4. Try washing your hair slightly less often, usually in the winter it’s relatively easy to push it another day, this will help keep the natural oils in your hair and on your scalp and in turn keep it all in better condition, also it  means you’ll be heat styling your hair less often which is only good news for your strands.
  5. Avoid hat hair with a texture spray.  Once you’ve blowdried your hair, use a bit of texture spray like Alterna’s Caviar Perfect Texture Spray or label.m’s Texturising Volume Spray and then when you take your hat off you should just be able to rough up the roots a bit and completely get rid of your hat hair.  (For hat hair emergencies we recommend keeping texture spray in your handbag!)

Keeping up with these little tips and making that small change to your routine will make the world of difference to the condition of you hair thought the Winter months.
