5 tips on how to look after your hair in colder weather

Wednesday 14 October 2015

We are moving to colder weather and it effects our hair more than you might think. The cold air outside and the central heating indoors can cause havoc on our hair. I often get clients coming in to the salon complaining about their hair being dry. So here's a few tips on how you can prevent dry hair and how to look after your hair in the winter. 

1) Use a moisturising shampoo and conditioner 
When the weather turns cold the hair needs more moisture and using a moisturising shampoo and conditioner is key. Also a deeper conditioner treatment once in a while would do wonders. 
One of my favourite products in the winter is John Masters organic intensive conditioner. 

2) Wear a hat
Too much exposure to cold harsh weather can leave your hair brittle and dry. Wearing a hat will not only prevent you from getting cold but also your hair from getting dry. Make sure you wrap up. 

3) Plait your hair 
Having your hair flying around with the cold wind, rain or snow will damage your hair. To prevent this just make a plait and your hair will stay in place and be protected. 
I have several tutorials on how to do a plait on my YouTube channel

4) Avoid long hot showers 
When it's cold it's tempting to have long hot showers. But it will only dry out your hair and skin. 
The hot water can strip the natural moisture from your hair and dry it out.  Instead try and use lukewarm water.

5) Prevent static hair 
Dried out scalp produces fewer oils which makes the hair static and fly away. To avoid apply extra moisturising  shampoo and conditioner or add hair oil. 

I hope this was helpful. What are some of the things you do to look after your hair in the winter?
