Winterizing Your Hair Care

Winterizing Your Hair Care

Posted by Team John Paul Mitchell Systems on Dec 25th 2016

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.
