Dull, dry, lifeless hair wrecking your winter style ideas? Wait! Before you tuck it away under a beanie, try this winter hair styling tips for healthy hair.
The first steps to healthy winter hair begin at home – nutrient-rich food and good sleep provide the nourishment from inside. While on the outside, the good old hot oil massage can alleviate much of the dryness and frizz. Almond, Jojoba, Olive, and Coconut oils are ideal for a quick message on the scalp.
Follow up your home care with regular visits to the salon and indulge in a relaxing hair treatment that’s just right for your unique needs. Deep conditioning once a week will lock in the moisture and defend against the cold winter air. As an L’Oréal Professionnel brand ambassador, Vipul Chudasama recommends an appropriate treatment with the PowerMix Inforcer range to keep your hair healthy and glamorous.
Be it summer or winter, a clean head of hair is vital for gorgeous tresses all round the year. In winter, keep the washing to a minimum and always remember to dry your hair before leaving home. It’s important to use a suitable shampoo and conditioner as per your hair type – ask your hairdresser for help in choosing the right one. Make sure to use lukewarm water to wash your hair, as hot water can make it dry and brittle. Regular trims are another important task that most seem to skip – just a snip of the ends every 6-8 weeks will keep those split-ends away.
Protecting your hair from the elements should always be on a top priority – no matter what season of the year. In winters, the chilly air can dry out your hair, leaving it dull and breakage-prone. Think about investing in a humidifier – yes, humidity might remind you of frizz but also remember that the indoor heating leaves your skin and hair dry as well. Humidifiers in winter act as a countermeasure to this.
Wearing a hat is quite common to keep your ears and hair away from the harsh winter winds. But make sure you first cover your hair in a silk scarf and then put on the wool hat or beanie – this will not only prevent static but also reduces damage.
