5 Ways to Prevent Winter Hair Damage


If you live in a place where winter weather exists, then you're likely familiar with the effects that dry and cold winter air conditions can have on your hair; dryness, static, frizz, and general lack of healthy hair.

How do you take care of your hair, minimize these harsh winter effects and prevent damage? We've put together 5 favorite winter hair care tips and tricks so you can achieve healthy hair this winter.

 1. Add moisturize with hair oil

 During the colder months, blasts of dry air and indoor heating are not good for any hair type and tend to zap a lot of moisture out of hair. Adding extra moisture is the   key. Try using a leave-in conditioner or add hair oil to your winter hair care routine to combat dryness effectively. Applying a few drops of a nourishing hair oil at the ends of your hair will help replenish your hair during the winter. Some of our favorite hair oils include Argan oil and jojoba oil.

2. Static free hair

For a quick fix, a simple tip for dry hair is to carry a regular anti-static laundry dryer sheet with you in your bag. Lightly swipe it over the fly-aways and enjoy your instant, static-free hairdo. 

 3. Shampoo less often

Over washing your hair can strip it of its vital natural oils that keep the hair moisturized and protected, which are more important during the colder months. Try extending the period between your washes as much as possible, if you usually wash your hair every other day, try every two days. To help this transition process, you can try using dry shampoo between washes to keep your looking fresh.

Another tip for dry hair? If your roots aren't too oily, wash your hair with conditioner only and skip the shampoo altogether.

 4. Cut down on heat styling

Heat styling is a major culprit for dry, damaged hair resulting in split ends and breakage. Avid use of heat protection, including leave-in conditioners, to prevent breakage and trying protective styles, such as braids, buns, twists, and ponytails, give hair time off from the heat routine.


5.Try a hair glaze

Not only are darker hair colors trendier during the winter season, this will also limit the number of times your hair needs to be bleached throughout the colder months. As an alternative to dyeing your hair, try a hair glaze. This is a great way to tone your hair and warm the color up, without the permanency of traditional dyes. Hair glazes sit on top of the cuticle and coat the hair with added pigment, boosting your natural hair color while adding beautiful shine and gloss. Glaze is very temporary, but a great solution.
