Tame Your Winter Hair

Brittle, dry ends and greasy roots – hello, winter hair! The chilly temperatures and frequent use of hats and scarves don’t do your locks any favours. But don’t fret - here are some tips for how to beat the cold and tame your locks!

1. MAKE FRIENDS WITH LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER
The bitter cold and harsh winds can cause your hair to lose serious moisture, thus making it hard to style. To help retain moisture and keep your hair healthy, invest in a leave-in conditioner. Your strands will thank you.

2. DON’T SKIP A TRIM
Just because it’s cold out, doesn’t mean you should quit your usual beauty regime! Since your ends get just as worn down in winter, regular trims will help keep your hair in tip-top shape.

3. WHEN IT SLEETS, USE A HAIRSPRAY
Hair spray is the best moisture repellent there is. So, make sure you spray your hair if there’s a risk for sleeting snow and rain. Opt for a light or firm hold – depending on what you prefer. The best part? It brushes out easily.

4. WEAR YOUR HAT (WITH CAUTION)
Although your usual cold-weather cap may be cute, it can also flatten your hair. On days where you simply must don a knitted hat, do a little backcomb thru the crown. This gives your style a strong base, allowing you to quickly fluff up your hair when you take off the hat.

5. DON’T FORGET TO TREAT
Naturally, you should continue using your usual shampoo and conditioner, but don’t forget to treat your hair to a luxurious mask or hair oil that will add shine, hydration and richness.
