2 Ways to Stop the Winter Elements from Wrecking Your Hairstyling Game

Hairstyling - Face to FaceNeed change? Struggling with dry autumn-damaged hair? From over relaxing, brushing, curling, straightening, and blow-drying to colouring, you’ve put your hair through the wringer over summer, and now it is frizzy and splitting. It is a known fact that the arctic air, high-speed winds, indoor heat, and static electricity damage all hair textures. So, if bone dry tresses are threatening your hairstyling game and you want to get your locks spring-ready, here are the two best ways to stop the elements from wrecking your hairstyling game.

  1. Shampoo Less Often and Condition More

Winter air zaps out moisture from your hair, which is why the scalp produces natural oils between the scalp and hair. That is why those with dry scalps must wash their hair only twice a week or less. However, if your hair appears greasy, you can combat this with either a sulphate-free shampoo, dry shampoo, or a thick, creamy, moisture-restoring conditioner.

Tip: When it comes to hairstyling, always use a sulphate-free shampoo to maintain the natural moisture balance, and never leave the house with wet hair as hair can split and break.

  1. Hydrate and Nourish with Moisturising Oil Treatments

Like your skin, your hair needs daily moisture. If neglected, it dehydrates, leading to scalp irritation and flakiness. There are many natural oils on the market, but coconut oil, Shea butter, castor oil, almond oil, avocado oil, and olive oil works wonders for deep hydration and nourishment. Like a serum left on hair overnight – heat the oil in a bowl and massage it into the scalp. To improve hair growth, hair texture and scalp circulation, massage your hair at least 1-2 times a week with the abovementioned natural oils. You will notice a difference after the first treatment.

Hairstyling is delicate during the cold winter months, so give your hair a break this winter with the above tips – also avoiding curling irons and hair dryers.
