Essential Tips for how to care for hair in the Chilly Season

Winter is a magical time of year, but it can wreak havoc on our hair. The cold, dry air, coupled with indoor heating, can leave our locks longing for some extra care. In this blog, we'll dive into the essential tips for winter hair care, including specific advice for different hair types such as curly, relaxed, and frizzy hair.

Hydration is Key

The winter air tends to be dry, which can lead to dehydrated strands. Combat this by increasing your hair's moisture levels. Opt for a hydrating shampoo such as FarmaVita's Shampoo which specializes in intensive hydration and repair or a deep moisture Shampoo, which instantly restores and rehydrates hair. Using a hydrating conditioner that suits your hair type is also a good idea. Consider adding a deep conditioning treatment to your routine once a week to replenish lost moisture.

Mindful Washing

Resist the urge to wash your hair daily during winter. Overwashing can strip your hair of its natural oils, making it more prone to dryness and breakage. Instead, aim for 2-3 washes per week using lukewarm water, as hot water can further dry out your strands. 

Protective Styling for Curly Hair

Curly hair requires extra attention during winter. Embrace protective styles such as braids, twists, or buns to shield your curls from the harsh elements. Before styling, apply a Leave-In Conditioner that provides deep hydration and nourishes the hair leaving it shiny. Hair oil is also an excellent choice to lock in moisture and keep your curls looking vibrant.

Relaxed Hair 

Relaxed hair is more susceptible to dryness and breakage, especially in the winter. Opt for sulfate-free, moisturizing products to maintain your hair's health. Regularly trim your ends to prevent split ends. With more regular trims this winter you're going to need the perfect scissors. Learn more about the different hairdressing scissors from our blog. Consider incorporating a protein treatment into your routine to strengthen your strands such as Restructuring Shampoo which is infused with a blend of milk proteins that revitalizes and nourishes the hair. L'Oreal's Repair Shampoo is also a good option as it nourishes the hair combating damage and dehydration.

Scalp Care Matters

A healthy scalp is the foundation for healthy hair. During winter, your scalp may become dry and itchy. Winter dandruff is unfortunately very common. Learn more about dandruff from our. Combat dry scalp by incorporating a scalp massage with a nourishing oil into your routine. This will stimulate blood flow and help distribute natural oils.

Combating Frizz

Frizzy hair can be a common woe in winter due to the lack of humidity. To combat frizz, use a smoothing shampoo and conditioner. Apply a leave-in conditioner or anti-frizz serum such as Fluid Crystals that deeply hydrate hair, seal split ends, and tame frizz. Or Keraterm Spray which prevents moisture loss and frizz. Consider investing in a silk or satin pillowcase to minimize friction and reduce frizz while you sleep.

Limit Heat Styling

Give your hair a break from excessive heat styling during the winter. If you must use heated tools, always use a heat protectant to minimize damage. Embrace air-drying or opt for heat-free styles to keep your hair happy and healthy.

Winter hair care is all about adapting your routine to provide your locks with the extra care they need. These tips will help you maintain a healthy mane throughout the chilly season.
