WINTER HAIR CARE
During the winter months hair needs extra attention to attain a healthy appearance and without proper care, it can look limp and dull.
These three hair care pointers will show you how to easily maintain hair quality.
In winter, you need to change your hair washing routine.
Less washes prevents hair drying out and avoiding hot water allows it to retain natural oils.
Focus on the ends as they’re the oldest and most damaged part of the hair.
Finish your wash with cold water to trap moisture.
During winter you should be deep conditioning at least once a week.
Ensure your hair is clean before you start or it won’t be as effective.
Using deep conditioners that contain olive, avocado and coconut oils are recommended for enhanced results.
Warmth also shows improvement, so cover hair with a shower cap or something similar then apply heat.
The best amount of time to leave a deep conditioner is 30 minutes or more.
To finish, rinse your hair with cold water to seal the moisture.
Drying your hair in winter is crucial. You may not know this but you should never leave the house with wet hair in winter, because of the damage it does.
Putting your hair up while it’s damp is also a mistake, as it causes split ends, dandruff and breakage.
Squeezing water from hair gently then using a cool blow dryer is the best solution.
Do not rub with a towel, as this causes friction damage, and keep warm blow-dryers to a 15 centimetre distance.
