6 Ways to Maintain Healthy Hair This Winter
As the long nights draw in and the temperature drops, your hair can become brittle and dry. Without changing your hair routine!
It may not be the products you use but in fact your body reacting to the changing in seasons. With winter factors such as cold winds, frost, rain and indoor heating, your hair can loose it's natural oils easily which can lead to it feeling more dry and damaged.
1. Avoid Placing your Hair in a Pony – Whilst many of us are quite partial to a ponytail every now and again, especially in between washes. Combined with cool, frosty air, your hair can become full of split ends – this can follow with the fun of frizzy hair & scalp stress and ultimately hair loss. Try to avoid scraping your hair back and instead, try ditching the elastic bobble and swap for a spiral hair bobble. This can help reduce hair snagging and stressed roots. You could even try switching the hair styles like half up, half down or pinning it back.
2. Skip Out on the Dry Scalp – When your hair loses moisture, it can become brittle, so does your skin. Your scalp can become dry and itchy, leading to an increase in dandruff. Maintain your scalps moisture with an anti-dandruff shampoo.
3. Detox your Hair by Increasing the Gap Between Washes – Chances are, you’ve probably washed your hair an awful lot in the summer, from chlorine, exposure from the pool and sea on holiday to sweating in the heat. To repair the dryness caused by these elements, you need to find a way to re-introduce your hair’s natural moisture such as extending your ‘in-between’ washes. If you can get away with it, trial washing your hair once a week to regain your hair's natural oils.
4. Postpone Heat Styling – I know this one may be tricky, but if you hold back on the blow drying and give your hair a rest from straightening/curling with a hot iron. Your hair will get a chance to repair breakage and split ends. Let your hair dry naturally and apply a serum for the frizz. It’s winter! If you’re ashamed of your natural hair, you can always wear a hat.
5. Get a Trim Regularly- I know many people can’t understand that getting your hair trimmed often will increase growth, but it really does! Your hair will not have a healthy growing process if you have dried, split ends. Getting your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks will promote healthy, thicker hair.
6. Use a Moisturising Mask - To help repair dry & dull looking hair, try using a conditioning mask. Maintain your manes health by sealing in moisture & nutrition plus in the process you can lock in hydration and fight frizz whilst showcasing shiny, silkier hair.
