8 Ways to Avoid Dry Hair this Winter
Embracing hygge (the Danish word for cozy) is a great way to combat the winter blues. Consider these steps as hygge for your hair. Take action right now to make sure the weather combined with dry indoor heat can wreak havoc on your lovely mane. Breakage and split ends aren’t just a summertime sadness. It happens in winter, and to all manner of hair types. In order to have fabulous hair all year long, there are a few precautions you should take throughout the year. Our Natural Hair Salon stylist Rachael Jones put together this list for you.
- Use hydrating shampoo and conditioner, such as the Neumoisture line. It’s rich in Apricot kernel oil and shea butter, which hydrates thirsty locks.
- Space out wash days to preserve your natural oils from the scalp, they are there for a reason. I like to brush my hair daily pulling the oils away from the scalp throughout my hair (use reNeu dry shampoo if you’re looking for a product to keep your hair looking fresh).
- Use a deep conditioner a few times a month. Neumoisture intensive mask is a great at home mask that will rehydrate your hair and restore shine.
- Protect your hair when using heat. Neumoisture instant fix is Thermal protectant that detangles, tames and smoothes while improving manageability. It can be used on it’s own or layered with any other protect to suit your needs.
- Trim your hair regularly. Since the ends of your hair are most likely to be dry and damaged, keep your ends healthy by getting regular hair trims every 6 weeks. Cutting the last ½ inch off from the ends of your hair can help your hair look even, healthy and reduce split ends.
- Eat a balanced diet full of leafy greens, fruits, fish, and wholes grains, which contain essential fatty acids and vitamins that help to nourish not only your body but also your hair.
- Avoid brushing wet hair. Use a wide-toothed comb or “wet brush” to detangle your damp hair. Game changer!
- Avoid over processing your hair. Changing your colour from black to blonde can be damaging but not impossible. Wellaplex can be mixed into your colour helping strengthen the hair bonds during the lightening process. Ask one of our stylists just how great Wellaplex is!
