Like Viking raiders from the north, the cold, dry winter air can wreck havoc on your hair. Just like skincare, you should be adjusting your hair care routine so your tresses looks their bestest during winter. Often that means using shampoos that are calming to your scalp, and swapping light conditioners for heavier ones.
Salon Helena is here to help you tackle the problems that commonly affect our hair during winter:
– As the air dries out during winter, it is also more likely to be charged with static electricity. Keep your hair as hydrated as possible with weekly hydrating masks and leave-in conditioner. When static strikes, spray hairspray on your brush and gently pull it through hair once you’re finished styling. You can also try Alfaparf shampoo, conditioner and hair masks to lock in moisture.
Dry, brittle hair
- Just like skin, it takes extra care to keep hair hydrated during winter. Besides drinking plenty of H20, you can keep hair silky and soft with a weekly at-home deep conditioning mask, such as the MOROCCAN OIL Restorative Hair Mask. Also schedule periodic deep conditioning treatments at Salon Helena. Besides offering a tranquil scalp massage, the treatment will defeat frizz and the dryness that comes with over-processed hair.
– Banish hat hair by styling with maximum volume before putting your hat on. Put Eufora Volume Fusion Spray in your roots, blow dry, and put your hair in a top knot before you put on your hat. Once you’re inside, take the knot out and shake it loose and voila—you have voluminous, anti-hat hair!
– Depending on the extent of your dry scalp, you might simply need a calming shampoo, such as those in Alfaparf’s Active Hair Power line, designed for optimal scalp care. If winter is really putting your scalp through the wringer, you might need something a little more powerful like Nioxin. Nioxin will cleanse your scalp from buildup (e.g. dandruff) without drying out hair.
In general, avoid too much heat styling as much as possible since you hair is already vulnerable to the winter weather. Of course, this isn’t always possible, so be sure to use heat protectants before blowdrying and styling. Glosses are always great to tame flyaways after.
