Winter Hair Care: How to Maintain Your Hair

To prepare for winter, our hair has to shift into a new style. Although there are many positive aspects to the weather getting cooler, we are certain there are certain aspects we could do outside, particularly dry skin and hair. A high temperature setting may make our house truly nice, but it will definitely dry out our hair. Here are several strategies to keep dry hair nourished even when inside, when it might be quite dry.

Wintertime hair maintenance

  • Give natural oils a try on our hair. It's the ideal time to start utilizing products with hydrating natural ingredients when the temperatures fall. To help hydrate and prevent dry, frizzy hair, ensure that our hair products are sulfate-free and have hydrating components like keratin, argan oil, and mongongo oil.
  • Shampooing less frequently. Now is the perfect time to forego our daily wash and conditioner because mornings are becoming gloomy longer. By using a little dry shampoo and waiting an extra day before shampooing our hair, we may protect our tresses.
  • Use a deep conditioner, hot oil therapy, leave-in conditioner, hair mask, or a deep conditioner. Perhaps the best winter hair care recommendation is to hydrate. Use a restorative hair treatment that is packed with nourishing monoi oil to create a moisture barrier that is both protective and frizz-reducing. This will assist in nourishing and moisturizing our dry hair all day.
  • Toss the towel. Instead of reaching for our go-to cotton towel as we walk out of the shower, grab a microfiber towel. In comparison to traditional cotton towels, the microfiber choice is gentler to the hair cuticle, assists in preventing our scalp from becoming too dry, and absorbs more moisture more quickly. We can blow dry our hair more quickly as a result, which results in less heat damage to our hair and fewer split ends and breakages.
  • Stop using heat on your hair. It might be challenging to reduce our usage of heat styling if we are the daily blow dryer and nightly curling iron kind of person. However, heat style really dries out our hair, causing breakage and dry, brittle hair strands, so it's worth a try. Try to restrict the frequency of our usage of hot tools to once or twice per week if air drying cannot be made to happen. When using heat tools, be essential to prepare our hair with nourishing and environmental stressor-protecting products. In order to preserve hair from UV rays and other environmental stresses, we must ensure that any style products we use are suitable for color-treated hair.
  • Each season's first haircut provides strands with a clean slate. We'll remove any damaged ends and stimulate more orderly hair growth. Therefore, go ahead and arrange a trim if we can.

Seasonal changes are the ideal opportunity to switch up our appearance. We might think about altering our hair color for a real fresh start now that we have a new haircut, hydrated hair, and a new regimen. 

Guidelines for moisturizing hair

  • Make use of a humidifier. In addition to maintaining moisture in the air while we sleep, using a humidifier will help us breathe more easily during the cold and flu season. Our skin will feel less dry and get more humidity from the increased moisturizer, which will make our skin and hair more susceptible to conditioners and moisturizers.
  • Reduce the temperature when we sleep. We'll have the ideal excuse to pull out our coziest comforter when we just lower the temperature while we sleep, making the air considerably less drying on our skin, scalp, and hair. Additionally, it will benefit the environment and save our heating costs.
  • Conditioner fills the gaps left by curly hair's high porosity and helps to keep moisture in by sealing these openings. 
  • Don't brush your hair. Combs and brushes should not be used when styling. However, all types of curls may be detangled in the shower by using a wide-tooth comb to go through their curls.
  • During the winter, our hair's ends and tips can be more exposed, which leads to more split ends. When we shower and style, make sure to moisturize our ends extra.

Drink plenty of water to help keep the body hydrated while also moisturizing our hair as we embrace our new winter hair care routine. Increasing our water consumption would not only improve our health but also make our skin and hair smoother to the touch. This winter weather is likely to seem more cozier with all these suggestions for healthy, lustrous hair and our favorite seasonal warm beverage in hand. Say welcome to your cheery winter hair!
