Winter Hair Care Tips for 2018

The cold winter months aren’t just harsh on your social life (who wants to go out when you can curl up with a blanket and Netflix?), but they can also be harsh on your hair.

When the temperature drops, it becomes harder for your hair to retain its natural moisture. This makes your hair prone to breakage, damage, and unwanted static and frizz. This winter, try these useful tips and tricks for healthier hair.

Condition

During the winter months, your scalp becomes dryer and itchy. Besides just being uncomfortable, this can also lead to issues like dandruff and aggravated scalp irritation. Luckily with the right care and conditioning, dryness can be a very manageable issue. Our stylists recommend doing a deep conditioning treatment or mask once a week. Another affective conditioning option is to try a lemon and oil treatment. Simply massage the oil and a teaspoon of lemon juice into your scalp and leave it in for 20-30 minutes. Rinse it out with shampoo and conditioner.

Avoid Over-shampooing

While a great shampoo has so many benefits, it can also dry your hair out when done too much. This winter, try to keep your shampoo use to a minimum – two to three times per week if possible. This will help you retain some of your natural moisture that is sacrificed in the cold. Plus, always make sure you are drying your hair before leaving the house. This, coupled with over-shampooing, could add further damage to your hair.

Keep Your Hair Covered

One very simple (and warm!) solution is to always wear a hat when outside. Not only does this keep your hair covered from wind, snow, and rain, but this helps to protect your hair from damage. If you’re looking for ways to avoid the dreaded hat hair look, a great way to avoid this is by wrapping your hair in a silk scarf before putting on your hat.
Treat Your Hair to Regular Trims

Last but not least, it is always a great idea to treat your hair to regular trims during the winter months. We recommend trimming your hair every six to eight weeks, which will prevent any dry or split ends.

Although winter can be hard on your hair, you can fight back against the cold with these easy and affordable winter hair care tips.
