Winter Hair Care: 5 Tips for Beautiful Tresses

Your hair has managed to survive summer and fall, but now it’s time for the real challenge: winter. Cold weather brings its own hair difficulties (i.e., dryness), which manifest in a variety of unsightly ways, including static, split ends and dullness. It’s not a pretty picture, but luckily, there are a few easy tricks for keeping your hair tamed this season.

Winter Hair Care Tip 1: Skip the shampoo.

No matter how often you wash your hair, add an extra day of rest between cleansing. Simply rinse locks and hydrate ends with an uber-conditioner.

Winter Hair Care Tip 2: Beat the heat.

Most styling tools work because they apply high temps to your hair. And frankly, most cuts need some sort of styling to fall into place. Minimize damage from dryers and irons by first applying a styling product with protective silicone coating. Also, work in sections to give strands time to cool off before restyling.

Winter Hair Care Tip 3: Fight frizz.

Most experts recommend finishing sprays to keep flyaways at bay. In a pinch, you can also use dryer sheets or a drop or two or conditioning oil. Also, try switching to a leave-in conditioner post-shampoo. It can hydrate and coat the cuticle to prevent splitting. Here are some great home remedies for frizzy hair.

Winter Hair Care Tip 4: Switch to volumizers.

Cold weather can zap the life from your hair. Add some oomph with shampoos and conditioners that promise fullness, lift and volume.

Winter Hair Care Tip 5: Shine on.

Fake strong, hydrated locks with just a drop or two of shine product. Hair looks healthy when you apply it before or after styling.

    thank you for sharing!

    Skipping the shampoo does not sound good to me because I think that we need to clean our hair thoroughly using it. I think I should just follow your tips and see if it will work for me.

    If you have a dry scalp then you shouldn't wash your hair every day because you will remove your natural oils.

    Your tip number four suits me well for the reason that I have really thin and fragile hair. Can you recommend top volumizer brands?

  5. Cascia Talbert March 6, 2013

    Audrey, I don't really know of any good brands. If I were you I would visit your local discount store and try a couple different ones out until you find one that works best for your hair. I hope this helps!

    Thanks for visiting and leaving us a comment!

    These are basically the things I do too to keep my hair in its top form during winter season. But honestly, my hair is more manageable in the winter than the summer.

    Ursula, Glad to hear you are taking good care of your hair! My hair gets so frizzy in the winter when it is dry and cold. Thanks for stopping by and leaving us a comment!
