The nights are getting longer, the days shorter. Love it or hate it, there’s no stopping Mr. Winter from cooling things down. However, before you should start checking your winter to-do list, take a look at your locks. Are they ready for Mr. Winter? You may not know it but your hair is a favorite prey of the cold season. With the harsh cold breeze and extreme temperature, it wouldn’t be a surprise if your hair turns out limp, frizzy and very dry. So that nothing disturbs the spirit of an all-out winter fun, be guided by these winter hair care tips.
Condition, condition, and deep Condition
In fact, conditioning is a crucial hair care routine regardless of the weather, let alone the season. But if you have been skipping that conditioner bottle since time immemorial, then you only have yourself to blame if your tresses are far from touchable. Remember, the cold weather can especially rob your hair of its moisture. Conditioning does not only smooth out the hair shafts but also locks in the moisture, leaving your hair smooth and shiny. Get a deep conditioning treatment once every 3 weeks. This process will nourish and moisturize your hair from within.
Use a mild shampoo
Even if you have a naturally oily hair, it is safe to use a mild shampoo on a daily basis. Mild shampoos contain herbal extracts and through which, they can be used to correct hair and scalp flaws. Moreover, a mild shampoo basically restores the natural pH balance in the hair and scalp. Therefore, make sure you get yourself one.
Fight the frizz
Cold temperatures rob your hair dry, making it even more prone to frizz. Calm them down by using natural oils. Dry hair lacks moisture and you can replenish through using oils. You can also invest in a good no-frizz product for everyday use.
More so, it is important that you put down those heat styling tools for a while. Heat is also a drying agent, if not the most harmful enemy of your hair. Should you want to style your hair, use techniques that require no heat, where possible.
Lastly, let your hair stay hydrated from within by drinking the required daily amount of water.
Every after shampooing and conditioning, always make sure to rinse off thoroughly. Remaining product residue make hair attract more dirt quickly as soon as it dries up. Additionally, it is advisable to let your hair air-dry instead of using the blow dryer. (Refer to the previous section.)
Wear a snowcap
Like when you bask in the sunlight, wear a snowcap to keep your hair in place and protected of the wind. Also, check out some newest low-maintenance and chic hairstyles that flatter you. Remember when life gives you snow, make a snowman.
