Winter can be a beautiful and fun time, but it can also be a bad time for hair in regards to its health. Between static electricity, indoor heating, and cold, dry air, your hair does not stand a chance without proper protection.
Here are some winter hair care tips to help your hair look its best in the winter.
Do Not Underestimate the Power of a Good Hat
Wearing a hat in the winter helps shield your hair from the elements. Choose a hat that is lined with a fabric like silk that will be extra protective for your hair.
Take Care When Washing Your Hair
In the winter, it can be tempting to take long, hot showers. But unfortunately hot water can actually be very harmful to your hair and skin. It is also a good idea to wash your hair less frequently in the winter. Over-washing can strip your hair of beneficial oils and dry it out.
Be Gentle With Your Hair
With everything that gets thrown at your hair in the winter, it’s a good idea to avoid too much heat styling on your hair. Heat weakens already vulnerable hair. Put your hair dryer and styling tools away for the season.
Give Your Hair Some TLC
Extra dryness in the winter means you need to make extra efforts to add moisture back into it. Set aside some time each week to feed your hair with an oil treatment, hair mask, deep condition, or all three!
Get Regular Trims
Getting a trim is the best way to avoid split ends and to keep your hair looking and feeling healthy. Aim to get a trim every one to two months.
