It’s entirely normal to struggle with your hair throughout the winter because it’s so long, cold, and moist. Extreme cold also damages hair, causing dryness, split ends, and static, similar to high heat. However, here are some crucial hair care survival tips for those chilly days, which is fortunate for you.
1. Avoid being exposed
Like you would your hands from the cold, cover your hair. The easiest approach to shield your hair from harsh weather is to wear it in a protective style. You can wear it in a low bun or a braid and tuck it inside your winter coat. Use a silk cap underneath your winter beanie to prevent breakage. Synthetic fabrics have a tendency to cause more static and damage.
2. Avoid using boiling water
Stepping into a hot, steamy shower is a pleasant way to warm up. Water and steam, on the other hand, rob the hair of moisture, leaving it more brittle.Take a hot bath or shower to warm yourself, but wash and rinse your hair with tepid or cold water instead. Cool water closes the cuticles, giving the appearance of shinier hair.
3. Avoid hair wash daily
Natural oils that keep the strands protected are removed by shampoo. Winter is the ideal season to begin delaying washing days and quickly hiding any poor hair days under the coat. To prevent further hurting the scalp and drying up the strands, use a sulfate-free shampoo and a silicone-free conditioner. When washing your hair, we suggest using the Balancing Shampoo and Conditioner.
4. Avoid going out with wet hairs
Hair is three times more brittle when wet than when dry. Never, I repeat never, leave the house with wet or humid hair because it could freeze and shatter! Although applying heat is not advised, drying it out before leaving is. On low or medium heat, blow-dry your hair.
6. Get a humidifier.
The cold causes us to turn up our heaters and dries out our surroundings, causing our hair and skin to lose moisture. You can restore moisture to the air by placing a humidifier in the room where you spend the most time.
7. Get rid of static hair.
Hair conducts energy, and when ions are out of balance, static energy causes hairs to stand on end. At all costs, avoid heat.Blow dryers and straighteners thoroughly dry off any water that has been trapped in the strands of hair. Finish with a drizzle of cold-pressed marula or grapeseed oil to protect it.Finally, to avoid static electricity, replace your plastic brush or comb with one made of wood or bamboo.
Take this time to truly focus on taking care of your hair. Follow your regular hair salons routine, which tells you which vital ingredients your hair need, and gradually eliminate the tiny things that you know are hurting your strands. Follow these suggestions, in addition to your hair routine, to show off your best hair this spring!
