Most of us know that cold weather can cause dryness to our hair and skin. A drop in temperature or dry conditions indoors due to central heating can lead to a loss of moisture, brittle hair and hair that looks dull and lifeless. Our top haircare tips and heroes have been selected to ensure your hair stays shiny and healthy throughout the holiday season.

  • Wash less

Although you might think you are using a hydrating Shampoo it is actually water that causes dryness. Avoid losing hydration and disrupting your natural oil balance by not washing your hair too often during winter. You can use a dry shampoo between washes to keep your hair looking and feeling fresh.

If you have to wash your hair every day, choose a moisturizing shampoo like the Aveda Nutriplenish deep moisture shampoo or the Ouidad Good as New Moisturising Shampoo. The restorative formula is designed for curly hair and mimics hair’s natural oils. It helps to increase moisture levels without weighing hair down.

  • Condition

Conditioning your hair after shampooing is a great way to restore moisture. Conditioning your hair helps smoothen and soften hair, making it easier to style. It also provides essential nutrients that protect your hair from harsh weather and the elements. The TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Repair Conditioner will give your hair the hydration that it needs to restore its health and soften it.

  • Dry

If you decide to wash your hair completely (njt just using the dry shampoo), it is very important that it is dry before you go outside to the cold. It’s not because your mom says you will get a cold. Wet hair is more fragile than dry hair. Cold temperatures can easily dry out your hair, making it more susceptible to split ends and breaking. You can avoid this by drying your hair thoroughly before you go out of the house.

The Aquis Antimicrobial Rapid Turban was specifically designed to protect hair in its most vulnerable condition. The 73% Polyester soft material gently dries hair without pulling or tugging. Smart technology within the turban has anti-bacterial properties that keep your towel fresher longer. This helps to protect your hair and scalp.

  • Oil

A hair oil or treatment should also be used weekly in cold seasons to moisturize and support your hair. Hair oils provide intense hydration which is what we all need in winter. They also help to repair damage and strengthen hair cuticles. System Professional Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir is a combination of Argan, Jojoba, and Almond Oils that will give your hair the extra hydration it requires. The leave-in treatment is lightweight and feels great on hair. It helps to eliminate frizz, prevent heat damage, and reduce mechanical stress.

The Olaplex No.6 bond smoother is a must-have for colour-treated hair. It will keep your hair moisturized in winter. This active formula, which is patent-pending, works to repair damage and re-link hair follicles. It makes hair look smoother and more supple. This salon-quality treatment can remove frizz and restore shine while protecting against future damage. Apply the product to damp hair, or dry hair and comb it through before styling.

  • Protect

The main reason for dry and brittle hair is heat damage. Use a shielding spray like the Pureology Colour Fanatic Spray to protect your hair. The Pureology Colour Fanatic Spray is suitable for hair with colour, but also works well for other hair types. It has an anti-oxidant rich formula that protects hair from environmental aggressors and extreme temperatures. The Spray contains a mix of natural oils including coconut and olive oils to replenish your hair’s moisture levels. This multi-purpose spray can be used for a variety of purposes, including to protect, prime and smooth hair strands.
