Top Tips For Healthy Hair This Year

hair care tips

With colder weather setting in, it’s not just your skin that needs some extra attention this winter. The change in temperature can wreak havoc with your tresses, giving you anything from flat hat-hair to heat-damaged frizz.

We’ve all been there and taming those locks can sometimes be a little trickier than expected. So before you head for the heat to flatten that frizz, take a look at these handy tips to make your scalp and hair healthier over the winter months.

Choose the right shampoo and conditioner for you

Ok, so we might just head to the brands that are the cheapest but just taking the time to consider your hair products can make a world of difference. Some shampoos and conditioners are laden with chemicals so opting for professional products are often the best choice. You’re looking for products that will not only cleanse your hair but give it that boost of moisture too, which is perfect for keeping it super hydrated when you need it most.

Avoid heat

It may be tempting to tame unruly hair with hair straighteners or a hairdryer, but leaving your hair to dry naturally will do wonders for its appearance. Excessive heat and harsh products can cause the scalp to dry out and flake, which can create dandruff.

Turning down the temperature when washing your hair will also help prevent scalp upset. The thought of a steaming hot shower on a cold day sounds heavenly. However, this excessive heat is damaging to your skin, both on your body and your head. Your skin may become drier and start to flake, and your scalp will also try to compensate by producing more sebum that may actually make your hair appear greasy. A no-win all round!

Get it trimmed regularly

As the winter kindly brings us cold snaps, knitted hats and days battling the wind and rain, your hair goes through a lot and can look lacklustre quicker than usual. A regular visit to your stylist will soon sort out those split ends, plus it gives you some time to indulge in a hair treatment. These specialist treatments will give your hair a moisture boost plus they keep colour looking fresher for longer.

At-home treatments for your hair and scalp

There are some easy things to try at home to give your hair and scalp that extra boost of hydration. A simple treatment is a hair mask. It’s really easy to fit into your routine and is the perfect excuse for a pamper session. If your hair is feeling super dry, why not leave a hair mask on overnight and rinse in the morning for super smooth and silky locks.

Avoid playing with your hair

Most of us do this without even thinking about it. But running your fingers through your hair or touching your scalp regularly transfers the oils, grease and dirt from your hands directly to your head. Touching your hair, twirling it around your finger or scrunching it up can also lead to breakage and unnecessary pulling of the root, which may lead to irritation and sometimes in extreme cases, hair loss.

Chat to your stylist

If you have any questions about how to tame your tresses this winter, chat to your stylist, and they’ll be happy to help.
