Our Top 5 Winter Hair Care Tips!

As the bitter cold winds hit us, the heating goes on and the adding on and taking off hats, we sometimes forget how much damage the Winter season can do to our hair. To help you sparkle this season here are our Top 5 winter hair care tips to keep your locks looking A-Grade all winter!

LOOK AFTER YOUR SCALP Your scalp is drier and itchier than ever during the winter months. This leads to issues like dandruff or dry scalp irritation. To control this try heating a couple of tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil to a warm temperature and then add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and massage into your scalp. Leave on for 20-30 minutes and then Shampoo and Condition as normal.

WEEKLY HAIR TREATMENT Make sure you use a hydration hair treatment at least once a week, leave on for as long as possible to allow your hair to absorb the nutrients in the masque, this will give your hair the hydration boost it needs in these drying conditions.

CUT DOWN ON YOUR HEAVY STYLING ROUTINE Try to do one less blow dry or straighten a week and always use a good quality heat protection spray to protect your hair as much as possible from styling breakage.

CONTROL THE FRIZZ One of the most annoying things of winter is putting on and taking off all your layers, whilst a hat keeps your head warm putting it on and off causes static to your hair. When washing your hair use a luke warm temperature which will leave more natural oils in the hair and don’t forget to apply a leave in-conditioner. There are some great products on the market to control frizz and we would recommend a product called Colour Wow Dreamcoat which has amazing humidity proofing powers it acts like a raincoat for your hair!

EAT A BALANCED DIET & STAY HYDRATED Eating a healthy diet is the best way to keep your hair and scalp looking and feeling healthy. Also make sure you drink plenty of water to keep your hair and scalp hydrated.
