5 Winter Hair Care Tips


We understand more than anyone that the winter months can put your hair and scalp under a lot of stress. Your hair starts to find it harder to retain moisture, making it brittle and prone to breaking and damage. Therefore, we have compiled a list of tips to avoid dull looking hair in the cold season.


     1) Keep your hair and scalp hydrated


During the winter months, your scalp is going to be incredibly itchy and dry due to the lack of moisture in the air. This leads to issues like dandruff and aggravated scalp irritation, which can lead to hair fallout. To combat this, use a shampoo that is known for deeply hydrating hair – such as the Alter Ego Garlic Shampoo With Vitamin A. This product gently cleanses the hair structure and deeply hydrates. The vitamin A in this shampoo also helps the scalp produce a healthy sebum to nourish and protect the hair.


     2) Don’t go outside with wet hair


Exposing wet hair to cold temperatures may freeze it and damage it, eventually causing breakage – so the less exposure to weather elements, the better. Wearing a hat to protect your hair on colder days is an excellent solution to this problem. To avoid your hair becoming flat, use a volumising spray or salt spray before you blow-dry your hair. The Argan Oil & Elastin Vol & Lux Volumizing Spray is an outstanding choice for this as it is ideal for fine and lifeless hair types. Simply apply it to damp hair, spray directly on roots and then proceed with styling.


    3) Avoid frequent hair washes


Over washing your hair will strip it of its natural oils, which you especially need in the colder months. Hot water can also dry out your hair and damage the delicate skin on your scalp, which may be extra sensitive during the winter. Therefore, instead of washing your hair on a daily basis, cut down to washing it twice a week.


    4) Invest in heat treatments


Using a heat hair treatment once a week will help restore your locks’ natural oils that are often stripped away during the winter months. On our website, we have the Heat Treat – The Thermal Hair Conditioning Cap which can provide you with the deepest conditioning your hair would ever have had. The heat from this cap opens up your hair cuticles allowing conditioning treatments to nourish and replace moisture to the inner hair shaft. This will soften your locks and rejuvenate dry, dull and frizzy hair.


      5) Use heat protection


The use of tools like hair dryers and curling tongs can dry out your hair and scalp, increasing the risk of damage. The best way to keep your hair in the best shape is to use a good quality heat protection spray. It works by creating a protective barrier on the hair shaft to protect the cuticles from being exposed to high levels of heat.


As your hair gets exposed to the weather a lot, it is best to pay special attention to it by keeping it nourished, protected and moisturised. By making a few small changes to your hair care routine, you can prevent your hair from getting dry, dull and damaged this winter.
