As winter approaches, the cold air and frosty snow can be damaging to our beauty routine. Aside from drying out our faces, it can also dry out our hair and damage it even more than the sunny rays of summer and daily use of heat tools. So, here are a few of my best tips in keeping your locks healthy, shiny and live all winter long!
Make sure you get 6-week routine trims. Even for growing your hair out, trimming your ends often promotes faster and healthier hair growth. Also, the more often you take away dead and split ends, the healthier your hair will be.
The cold can dry out your hair, damaging it which will eventually break off. I recommend switching shampoos and conditioners to a more moisturizing formula. I also recommend a deep conditioning treatment to use periodically throughout the season.
One of the biggest problems that most women face in the cold months is static hair. One of the best ways to control hair static is by using a leave in conditioner to keep the hair moisturized throughout the day. No one wants hair sticking to their face, and everything else!
Although it may not sound like much, every time you wash your hair, massage your shampoo into your scalp for a good 3-5 minutes. This gets your blood flow moving through your roots which promotes healthy hair growth. It is also a relaxing tool, which is perfect after a long day of work!
This is very important. We should all be taking vitamins on a daily basis anyways, but did you know there are many that not only help your insides, but your outsides too? Vitamins help skin look cleaner and healthier, promotes nail growth and helps strengthen and lengthen hair. Flaxseed oil and prenatal vitamins have been the most popular choices if you’re looking for some help with your hair routine.
