Winter can be pretty harsh on your hair. If it’s not getting blown about in the wind, it’s being dried out by air-conditioning when you’re inside. You need to take good care of it through the coldest months so that you can come out the other side and plan your awesome new spring style. There are a few things you can do to make sure your hair is ready for winter and that you protect it while it’s cold outside. Whether you want everyday tips for your hair or advice on how to keep your Christmas party look in place, have a look at this wintry advice.
Be Ready to Stay Hydrated
Your hair can really get dried out in winter. The wind can affect it, and both the cold weather and dry air inside can suck the moisture out of it. Staying hydrated is important for both your hair and your skin. In addition to making sure you’re drinking enough and sleeping enough, you can keep your hair conditioned to ensure it’s silky and smooth. It will help you deal with frizz and static too. To make sure your hair is ready for winter, start with repairing any damage that might have been caused over the year by coloring or anything else you might have done to it.
Get Your New Hairstyle
The changing of the seasons is the best time to change your hairstyle. That’s especially true for winter, when you’re sure to have plenty of festive events coming up. You could decide to do anything, but you might want to think about how to make your hair easier to handle. Maybe you’ll go for some Brazilian hair extensions or decide that it’s time to cut your hair short. Perhaps you’ll think festive and get something especially for Christmas if you’re feeling jolly.
Boost Your Volume
Cold and wet weather can make your hair go limp, as well as induce the frizz. And winter hats don’t help. If your hair falls flat during winter, you might want to boost its volume, so it doesn’t make you feel as deflated as it looks. Get a good hairspray that will hold your style, even when it’s under your woolen hat. Some sprays are designed to be using with straighteners, curling tongs and hair dryers so that the heat helps them to work your magic and keep your hairstyle in place.
Have Regular Trims
Dry hair in the winter can cause split ends galore, so make sure you don’t neglect your ends during the cold weather. Start off the season by having a haircut and maintain it throughout the season so you can keep everything looking neat. Getting a trim is something you should often do anyway if you want your hair to look and feel healthy. But it’s especially important in the winter when your hair might not be at its happiest.
If you want to have luscious locks all through winter, start prepping them now. If you start as you mean to go on, your hair is sure to stay beautiful.
