Winterizing Your Hair

Winterizing Your Hair

When it comes to winter beauty, most of us are up on our skin care routines to keep our complexions looking as radiant as ever. However, it’s easy to forget about out tresses!

From hat hair to static electricity, split ends to dry frizz, when winter weather hits a bad hair day can last the entire season. In fact, even if you live in a moderate climate (like Florida), you are still susceptible to hair-raising changes as the season pass. It is therefore advisable to visit a hair stylist from a reputed hair salon in Orlando and take adequate measures for nourished and smooth hair.

The environment can have some of the most damaging effects on hair in both summer and winter, but in winter it’s often worse because people generally don’t take as many precautions to protect their hair. Sun exposure can be as intense on a ski slope as it is on the beach combined with the blustery winter wind (which snarls hair) as well as rain and cold (which makes hair dry and brittle) can all come together and create bad winter hair days!

The good news No matter what is causing your winter hair woes, you can take both protective and replenishing steps. All it takes is a few simple steps to keep your hair looking its best over the winter.

Avoid hot showers: Although tempting to turn up the water temperature in the cold, winter mornings this can actually damage your scalp. Try to stick to tepid water.

Cut down on how often you shampoo your hair: Limit shampooing your hair to only two or three times a week. Not only will this prevent it from drying out in the cold, but it will also minimize the amount of heat styling you use.

Use an ionic hairdryer: If you have to use a hair dryer it is preferred to use an Ionic. It not only is better for your hair but can stifle static and helps keep the hair cuticle down.

Keep your hair moisturized: Using a hydrating mask once a week will help restore the natural oils that are often stripped away during the winter months. Once the heat goes on in your house, this often sucks the moisture out of the air. Invest in a humidifier to help lock in moisture. Good for you hair as well as your skin.

See your stylist on a regular basis: For your hair to stay in good condition, it needs regular trims. Especially when it is facing the elements of winter. We recommend every 6 weeks for a trim to tidy up your ends at Sanctuary Hair Salon in Orlando.
