Winter Haircare Tips!Monday, June 1 2020
With winter comes dry, static and thirsty hair, especially if you move frequently between overheated offices or homes to biting cold temperatures outside.
Here are our top winter hair tricks and guide to the products you’ll never want to live without this Winter.
The common cold, which we are always trying to avoid and especially right now is often caused from the simplest thing. Little known fact is that extended periods of time with wet hair, even inside, can be a leading cause of a head cold. This is where towel drying comes in, take the extra few minutes to really ensure your hair is free from water and moisture before leaving the house or using a blowdryer.
Dry, dry dry: Wait until your hair is around 70-80 percent dry before bringing out the hair dryer or hot tools. If you hear a sizzle or smell a faint burning smell when your straightener comes into contact with your hair, put it down and continue drying with your blowdryer until your hair is completely dry, styling tools like curling wands and straighteners are an add on for your blowdry they aren’t for drying the hair.
Love your hair. Giving your hair a good scrub with a towel may make the drying process faster but in the long run it makes your hair knotted and irritates the hair cuticle. We like to scrunch or pat the hair dry to avoid knots and snarls.
Don’t wash everyday:
Colder, less humid days means your hair produces less oil. This means you shouldn’t need to wash it as frequently as in Summer. If you continue to wash your hair as often, natural oils can be stripped away easier leaving your hair dry and dull.
Treat yourself: While most of us have no problem washing and conditioning our hair, it’s easy to forget about maintaining moisture. Avoid breakage, dryness and prevent excessive split ends by using an at home treatment every few weeks.
Products to try:
Davines Circle treatments – *The Quick Fix Circle* is like a morning coffee for your hair. It hydrates and detangles hair in only 3 minutes, making it soft, silky and manageable. The perfect hair mask for all hair types, your hair will be left with added shine, volume and hydration.
Davines Circle treatments – *The Renaissance Circle* do you often expose your hair to hot tools or go through a lot of chemical services? The Renaissance Circle is a repairing mask that gives new life to very damaged hair. It restores a healthy look to the hair giving it shine, nourishment and softness.
Original & Mineral – *Seven Day Miracle Moisture Masque* is a delicious, hydrating cream hair treatment to replenish stressed or dry locks.
Never skip a heat protector:
This is important no matter what the season but becomes particularly important in Winter when leaving the house with wet hair becomes a big “no no”. Our go heat protectors are Original & Mineral’s Frizzy Logic, which will also help combat frizz and add shine and Know Knott also from Original & Mineral which detangles and hydrates. These two products are perfect for all year round but really thrive with dry Winter locks.
Don’t take good hair ties for granted:
This is another one of those rules that we live by all year round. In Winter brittle hair can easily snap or get caught. We don’t go anywhere without our invisibobbles. Must have!
Hydration is key:
Like in the harsh summer our hair craves water in winter, and so does our skin and body. We recommend heaps of H2O accompanied by hydrating hair products.
