We List The Best Winter Hair Care Tips
During the colder months, it is important to adopt a winter hair care routine. Frigid temperatures combined with dry indoor heat can wreak havoc to your tresses, leading to split ends and possibly breakage. Instead of suffering all season, and praying for spring, we listed a few healthy tips that will help you put an end to winter hair issues.
Drink More Water. Healthy hair begins within and the key to nourishing hair, skin and nails is drinking plenty of water. Funny how something so easy as drinking water is usually disregarded. When we don’t drink enough water, our scalp suffers from the loss of nutrients and moisture, making hair become drier. One product that helped us recover quickly after a season of festivities was Dr. Perricone Hydrogen Water. It works as a natural antioxidant and increases energy.
Eat More Fruit And Leafy Greens. Some winter ailments are caused by nutritional deficiencies. Therefore, we must make an effort to absorb most of our nutrients from a healthy diet, consisting of fruits and vegetables. Raw is the best, so increase your salad intake. For on the go juice options, try one from Suja or BluePrint, or create healthy soup recipes featuring super foods.
Protect Your Hair From Hats and Scarves. Although both are a necessity to wear during the winter season, these accessories, even the trendy styles, can increase the dryness in your hair. Most hats and scarves are made with wool, fleece, and cotton. Wool, overtime can cause damage because it draws moisture away from the hair. In addition, it can cause friction that can break your hair off in spots. To assure tresses remain healthy, wear a silk or satin scarf under your hat to protect your hair from having direct contact from other materials. We like Grace Eleyae Satin-lined caps.
They protect hair by holding its moisture and prevent frizzing. I also recommend wearing it as a hair bonnet at night to avoid waking up with a mess in the morning. Speaking of protecting hair at night, make sure to also sleep with a satin or silk pillowcase, and add apply a small amount of a hydrating treatment like Secret du Nuit to replenish and strengthen hair while you slumber.
Pamper Your Hair With Deep Conditioning Treatments. Lastly, give your locks and scalp the nourishment it craves by adopting a winter haircare routine that highlights extra pampering. Before shampooing, start with Phyto’s Phytopolléine Botanical Scalp Treatment and Phytoelixir Subtle Intense Nutrition Oil onto lengths and ends and leave on for 20 minutes. Then, shampoo with a hydrating solution like Phytoelixir Shampoo or Phytojoba Shampoo, followed by Phytoelixir Intense Nutrition Mask. All of the formulas are lightweight, and will not weigh your hair down. Instead, your hair will feel soft to the touch, healthy, and manageable. Until spring!
