Winter can be a tough time for hair with the cold air often drying out our tresses and causing moisture loss and damage. Whether you’re wanting to protect your hair extensions or natural hair in the coming months, we’ve got some simple tips to help you protect your hair in winter time.
Treat your locks
Apply a nourishing hair treatment overnight to give it optimum time to sink into the hair thoroughly for a more effective treatment. The Additional Lengths Hair Extension Vitamin Spray infuses the hair with specially formulated nutrients and protects it against harsh weather and prevents tangles. Even if you can apply a deep conditioning hair treatment whilst you relax in the bath, your hair will thank you for it.
Cover up against the elements
Wear a hat, pull up your hood, anything to protect your hair from being pulled about by the wind or hit with cold rain. A good way to protect the more vulnerable ends which are more prone to breakage is to tuck away the ends into a hairstyle such as a bun or an updo.
Handle with care
As your hair is more likely to become brittle and prone to breakage, we recommend that you invest in a gentle brush such as those from the Tangle Teezer range. The soft plastic bristles of a Tangle Teezer brush are ideal for gentle smoothing and detangling, which makes them the perfect winter hair care tool.
Reduce moisture loss
Other things that we do can be the cause of moisture loss, such as blow drying, so try to reduce this by allowing your hair to dry naturally. Over-shampooing can also be a moisture wicking activity that you may wish to cut down on during the colder months; reduce your hair washing to once or twice a week. It’s not just the lengths of the hair than can get dry – some people also suffer with dry scalps at this time of the year. Remedy this by massaging an oil into the scalp and letting it nourish the skin there before washing.
