Sun exposure (which can be as intense on the slopes as it is on a beach) combined with blustery wind, snow, rain and icy cold conditions can all come together to create some pretty bad winter hair days. Keep your tresses tip-top with a little advice.
Say Goodbye to Dry
Treat your hair once a week to a deep conditioning treatment to help replenish moisture. Look for key ingredients like essential fatty acids and humectants to revitalize, repair and renew hair. An alternative is to use a hair oil after you’ve shampooed your hair. It’s like liquid gold for dehydrated or color-treated hair, and can be used on damp hair before blow-drying or on dry hair to fight frizz.
Stop the Static
Whether you’re taking cover under a cozy, wool beanie all-season long or braving the elements exposed, combat frizzy static with a heat styling product. Spray onto dry hair before using heat styling tools to keep flyaways at bay.
Less Is More
Keep washing your hair to a minimum, say, two to three times a week. This will prevent your hair from drying out too much. Feel the need to give your locks a refresh? Try a waterless dry shampoo.
Keep Up the Maintenance
Regular trims help keep your hair in good health during the winter months. Visit your stylist every six to eight weeks for a light clean-up of the ends to help reduce the chance of dry, splitting ends.
