Dry Hair in Winter? Winter Hair Problems
5 Ways to Take Care of Hair in Winter
There are many things that the winter months bring that we may (or may not) look forward to. One of the less desirable aspects of this period is the effect it has on our hair. Dry hair in winter is a nuisance but it’s not something that you have to endure without a solution.
We’ve prepared 5 tips to help you with your winter hair problems. So, wrap up warm and keep reading this article to find out more about how to take care of hair in winter.
1. Less Is More
Winter is a time to let your hair relax from its usual routine. This means less heat, less styling, less shampooing. These activities coupled with the cold climate can wreak havoc on your locks and leave you with dry frizzy hair in the winter.
Limit your washes to once or twice a week; use as little heat styling as possible, at all if you can, and style your hair in ways that discourage tangling or breakage.
2. Take Your Time
Whatever is mentioned in this article should not be done in a rush. For instance, going outside with wet hair because you didn’t have time to dry properly is a prime example of what we mean.
Organize your schedule in a way that allows you to give your hair the attention and respect it deserves during the winter months. Dry your hair thoroughly, comb carefully, follow the winter hair care products’ instructions meticulously. Every step is vital, and neglecting even one may have an adverse effect on the others.
3. Conditioning and Moisturizing Is Sacred
To prevent dry hair in the winter, you have to compensate for this dehydration with products that encourage moisturization and repair of your hair. For example, careful (that is, not rushing!) conditioning will help your hair to retain its natural oils as well as protect it from the harsh winter elements.
Similarly, a weekly hair mask routine, as well as regularly oiling your hair before and after washing, can have powerful long-term effects on your hair’s health throughout those chilly months.
Winter Hair Care Products
As we mentioned above, selecting products that encourage moisturization to repair hair and those that help protect the hair’s natural oils, the Goldwell Dualsenses Rich Repair shampoo and conditioner is a great choice. This product line deeply and effectively reconstructs, repairs, and restores the hair’s inner structure resulting in rigorous regeneration.
4. Wear Hats Outside
But not just any hat! Wool, cotton, and similar coarse fabrics contribute to the damage to your hair. Aim to find hats made of—or at least lined with—silk or satin. This will ensure that your hair doesn’t have direct contact with the winter winds and can live to fight another day.
5. Regular Trims and Professional Treatments
Split ends are an unfortunate by-product of the winter seasons, but if left unattended, they could weaken your hair’s fight against the cold. Getting a trim once every 6 to 8 weeks during the winter season can ensure that your hair is fighting fit till the spring comes.
Along with your trim, you could also get a Keratin treatment which is like giving your hair superpowers against the supervillain that is the winter chill!
