Winter is coming. Dry air, icy-cold winds and knit hats are dangerous for even the healthiest hair. Think ahead to prevent winter hair woes by stocking up on the right tools and products. We'll help you tackle all your winter hair concerns.
You thought since the humidity was gone, the frizz would go with it, right? Unfortunately you're wrong. To combat winter frizz try using a round Hot Brush from The Wet Brush. It'll help remove tangles gently, and smooth out hair while you blow dry. Additionally, be sure to keep your hairdryer pointed down, as to not rough up the cuticle.
Does it seem like your hair won’t grow in the winter? It's most likely due to breakage, when hair starts to break towards the middle of the hair shaft. Once breakage begins the only solution is to cut it. Avoid this by investing in a deep conditioner like Wella Enrich Moisturizing Treatment. Intensive moisturizing will smooth out the cuticle and keep hair healthy. Do this once a week, and you'll be good as gold.
Flyaways and Static
Lack of moisture in your hair leads to static and flyaways. Consider using a serum like TIGI S Factor Silky Smooth Moisture Serum to smooth flyaways, and a hairspray like Paul Mitchell Stay Strong to reduce static. If you don’t like the way hairspray reacts to your tresses, spray a little on your palm and smooth over your hair.
One of the most common winter hair woes is dry scalp. Often showing as an itchy, red scalp, dandruff is never fun to deal with. Reduce the risk by investing in a dry scalp shampoo like AG Hair Control Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. Consider going a step further by using a scalp treatment specially geared towards soothing and repairing your scalp such as Nioxin Scalp Recovery Soothing Serum.
It's time to start prepping your hair for a winter full of good hair days.
