Cold temperatures and harsh winter weather can wreak havoc on your hair and scalp, but what many people do not realize is that there are some easy winter hair care tips that will help to protect and replenish your hair during this blustery season. By making a few small changes to your hair care routine, you can prevent your hair from getting dry, dull and damaged this winter.

Try these simple steps at home to prevent damage to your hair and keep it looking clean, shiny and full of volume.

How Does Winter Weather Damage Hair?

Freezing temperatures, snow, sleet and rain can all dry out your hair, making it brittle and susceptible to split ends. Wind also does a number on your hair by tossing it around, creating tangles that can break when you brush out the knots. In addition, sun exposure is at an all time high in the winter. The reason for this is that the reflections off the snow and ice intensify the amount of light that hits your hair. Even indoor heating can also dry out your hair and cause static electricity, frizz, and flyaway strands.

5 Must Know Winter Hair Care Tips

1)      Use a thicker, moisturizing conditioner during the winter or consider a leave-on conditioner that will create a barrier around your hair strands to protect them from the elements.

2)      Don’t go outside with wet hair. This could cause your hair to freeze, which will eventually lead to brittleness and breakage. Take showers at night before you go to bed, so you can get up in the morning, style your dry hair and go.

3)      Tone down your color a shade or two.

The lighter you color your hair, the more damage you do to your hair and scalp. By going a bit darker, you can avoid damaging your hair any more than you have to.

4)      Invest in a shine boosting serum. This has the dual benefits of taming frizz and flyaway strands and giving your hair that sleek, glossy look.

5)      Once or twice a week, indulge in a deep conditioning hair treatment or hair mask. This will soften your locks and rejuvenate dry, dull and frizzy hair.

With a few simple hair care adjustments, most people can stave of the worst effects of damaging winter weather on the hair.
