How to care for your hair in winter

How to care for your hair in winter

Winter can be unforgiving to our tresses and dry, damaged hair hidden under bobble hats has become the norm. But fear not, there are certain measures you can take to restore life back into your locks and protect it from the harsh winds and icy conditions.

1. Shampoo less frequently

In winter, the harsh weather strips your hair of essential oils that keep it looking vibrant. Shampooing further strips the hair of moisture and can lead to the formation of dandruff, so consider easing up on your cleansing routine. You should only be using shampoo once or twice a week.

2. Intensely moisturise

Make friends with conditioner, as you will be using it frequently during the colder months. Consider incorporating an oil-based conditioner into your cleansing ritual, as these are more hydrating than traditional conditioners. Use a hair mask at least once a week and only choose products that penetrate deep beneath the shaft of the hair follicle. 

3. Cut ties with damage

While it might be your goal to grow long flowing hair, it's better to trim your hair in order to get rid of any split ends. Not only will it make your hair look healthier, but your tresses will also be easier to manage in the blustery conditions. Feel free to browse our range of cobalt scissors, which give a precise cut.

4. Choose dye over bleach

If you simply can't live without hair colouring in your life, opt for a darker hair dye instead of bleach. Platinum hair is strikingly beautiful, but darker dyes are less damaging than bleach. Treat winter as a time to let your hair recover; you can always go back in with the bleach when summer rolls around.

5. Use silk or satin lined hats 

If you have to hide your hair under a hat, choose one with a smooth lining. Coarse fabrics such as wool can damage your hair shaft, which can lead to frizz. This is especially true for curly and textured hair that is more susceptible to frizz.

Face winter head on and use these tips to get silky smooth hair, even on the coldest days of the year.
