Now that winter is in full swing, and the weather has been changing pretty consistently you may have noticed your hair isn’t loving it so much. So many of us tend to have some hair struggles in the winter due to the weather changes and different elements that we’re exposed to this time of year. We want to help your hair snap back from winter damage, so we’re sharing some of our must know tips for helping to keep your hair healthy, happy and looking gorgeous during and after the winter months if you’re experiencing some damage.
Ease Up on The Heat
Since our hair tends to get drier during the winter months, many notice that the hair looks and feels pretty dry and brittle. To really help you hair snap back from too my dryness, you’re going to want to try to ease up on how often you’re using heat on your hair. Since heated hair styling tools can add to even more dryness on the hair, it can cause more damage. Try to minimize how often you’re using heat on your hair for a bit to give it a break and a chance to really snap back. We’re not saying you have to completely cut it off, but try to cut back as much as you can for a few weeks to give your hair a chance to recuperate. In addition, when you do use heat on your hair make sure that you don’t do so unless you apply a heat protectant product to your hair to make sure that your hair is well protected.
Add More Moisture
As we said above, we tend to have a lot of dryness in our hair from so many different elements. Cutting back on how often you’re using heat to style your hair is one great step, but you’re also going to want to add more moisture to your hair as well. Adapting shampoo and conditioning products that are formulated to help add moisture and hydration is going to be crucial here. In addition to that, many experts suggest adding in a deep conditioning and/or hair mask that helps to add nourishment and moisture to your hair in a really powerful way. Most suggest doing these types of hair treatments on a weekly basis to really get the most benefit from your efforts. They really help to heal your hair and lock in moisture.
Protect Your Hair
You’re eager to help your hair snap back from winter damage, so you’re going to need to make sure it’s a priority to protect your hair while you give it an opportunity to snap back. This means avoiding being too harsh when brushing and styling your hair, not styling your hair in styles that are too tight, and being extra gentle when your hair is wet. All of these things can cause your hair to either snap back, or become worse if you don’t make them a priority. Be gentle on your hair and do what you can to protect it to ensure it has an opportunity to heal itself.
