It is not only the body that can get affected by cold weather, also the hair can suffer a bit. Especially if you don’t take care of it! Treat your hair the way it deserves, if not you will have weeks of bad hair days, and let’s face it: – No one likes bad hair days!
There are so many products out there promising healthy and stronger hair. Well, in some cases it actually makes a difference choosing a product that is over your normal budget, but in this post I will reveal a big hair secret of mine that can save you hundreds of pounds!
Prevent dandruff and static hair
To keep your scalp from becoming dry you should leave your beanie at home. Yes, I agree! It is freezing outside but wearing a hat/beanie for two long can cause a very aggravated scalp which leads to dandruff. If you can’t go without something on your head, you can invest in a cotton hat which generates less static electricity than wool or acrylic.
Change the shampoo and conditioner
The change in temperature and humidity are making big problems for your hair and can cause frizz, static and split ends. Therefore by choosing a different shampoo and conditioner than you normally use can really make a difference! I always use a thicker shampoo in the winter.
The Living proof series are meant to be very good for static and frizzy hair! I haven’t tried the products before but according to the reviews it is worth the try!
Avoid washing your hair every day!
The best thing for your hair in the winter is to avoid washing it every day. If you can’t, you can always use a waterless shampoo instead. Using waterless shampoo is the perfect way to deal with oily scalp issues which occur between shampoos. I recommend using a dry shampoo to keep your hair looking washed and ready.
Smooth your hair’s cuticles
By smoothing your hair’s cuticles you are giving the hair the treatment it deserves and preventing it from becoming dull. Invest in a replenish cuticle oil to give your hair’s cuticles the shine it needs. Using just a drop and rubbing it evenly on the hands and work through the hair moving from back to front, avoiding the roots.
Keep your hair hydrated!
Cold and dry air strips away the moisture in your hair so always make sure to keep your hair hydrated by using a hair oil or leave-in conditioner. You can also use a hair mask weekly or biweekly, depending on hair type.
Dry your hair before leaving the house!
Nothing is more damaging to your hair than leaving your house in wet hair, causing it to break and cause friction. Always make sure your hair is dry enough, before walking out the door. If you are in a hurry use a blow dryer to make it dry quicker.
Keep hair outside of your collar!
Did you know that your collar on the jacket can cause friction? Friction can lead to broken frizzy hair, so always keep hair on the outside of your jacket.
Treating your hair doesn’t need to cost a fortune!
You can save hundred of pounds each year by applying a little beauty secret to your routine that can make your hair go from dull to beautiful in just a second. Introducing coconut oil that you nowadays can get everywhere, even in the grocery shop next door. I have used this beauty hack for months and it has saved me a lot of money! Applying coconut oil to your hair ends can really soften the hair’s cuticles and keep your hair from becoming dry and frizzy. You can also use the oil as a serum for your hair, or even a hair mask. The coconut oil is simply amazing! You can get the one I use on the top of this post!
