With winter soon to be on its way, you’re surely thinking about how best to protect your hair from Mother Nature’s cold embrace?
Winter shouldn’t be stressed about, it’s a time for you to enjoy yourself, here at Pure Hair Design, we’ve figured out everything to help protect your hair this winter so you don’t have to stress trying to find the best methods! Here are 5 tips to help you get through winter!
You should start with non-product protection, such as wearing a hat to stop the rain wind and snow from damaging your hair, now I know what you’re thinking, “but what about hat hair?”. You can tie a scarf around your head before putting the hat on to stop friction between your hair and the hat, lessening the damage to your hair.
Make sure you’re regularly having your haircut too, nothing too drastic is necessary, just enough off your hair to remove the split ends caused by winter, you can’t avoid getting them altogether but you can get rid of them when they crop up. We advise getting your haircut every 6-8 weeks to keep on top and avoid heavy damages.
A little known method, is to purchase yourself a humidifier, again, I know your thoughts here “won’t that frizz up my hair?” not if you do it all a certain way. If you leave the heat on in your home, it makes your home very dry, the humidifier then stops your hair and skin from drying up by conflicting with the dry air, pretty clever, eh?
Deep Conditioning Treatment
You should also give your hair a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week, this is necessary to replenish all the moisture and nutrients that will have been lost from your hair due to the harsh conditions that are outside and the warmth and dry inside contrasting, with such opposing conditions your hair is bound to take a beating.
Finally, you should wash your hair as minimal as possible; I recommend about 2 to 3 times a week to avoid heavy damaging. You should also make sure your hair is dry before you leave the house, as well as getting a cold if it isn’t, you’ll also have the moisture in your hair being removed by the cold air, and this adds further damage to your hair and makes it even more brittle and dry.
