Winter can be extremely damaging to your hair. The fluctuating temperatures between the icy cold outside and the heated indoors do not only damage your hair, but they dry up all the moisture and eradicate your natural oils. Trying to repair extensive winter damage is an absolute nightmare! The following five tips have been tested and proven to care for your hair this winter and ensure that you enter spring with a bounce and a shine!
Winter Hair Care Tip 1:
Invest in a hair care treatment solution such as the Cloud 9 Collection from Beautopia Hair. The scientifically formulated restoration collection will heal any damage that your hair has and prevent your hair from being damaged any further. The nutrient-rich formula contained in every product in the Cloud 9 collection is designed to penetrate right down into the hair shaft, restoring your hairs natural health and revitalizing each hair strand from the inside out.
Winter Hair Care Tip 2:
If you don’t invest in a treatment solution like the collection mentioned above, then heat styling during the winter should be kept to an absolute minimum. Heat styling damages and destroys the hair follicles by drying out any moisture present; coupled with winter conditions, you may as well shave your hair off. If you have to subject your hair to any heat-styling then make sure that you at least add a Blow Dry Serum which is available in the Cloud 9 Collection as well.
Winter Hair Care Tip 3:
It’s almost a given that you will be heating up your home this winter. Heaters dry out the air and not only is this damaging to your hair, but also to your skin and overall health. Getting a humidifier will put moisture back in the air and will greatly lessen the damaging effects on your hair.
Winter Hair Care Tip 4:
If you are not already taking an Omega 3 supplement then make sure you add at least 250mg of flaxseed oil, primrose oil or even borage oil to your diet 3 times a day. The Omega-3 fatty acids keep your hair super moisturized. The Omega-3 is also great for fighting any winter blues that you might get.
Winter Hair Care Tip 5:
Jojoba oil is known to have excellent results on both your hair and your skin. There are two ways of applying this miracle oil. Firstly, you can apply it before shampooing your hair and leave it on for at least 5 minutes. The oil will prevent the shampoo from stripping any excess oils from your hair and deeply moisturize your hair. The second and best method for winter hair preservation is to rub a fair amount, not too much, jojoba oil between your palms and working it into your damp hair after washing. The jojoba oil will moisturize your hair and create a coating on each hair follicle preventing dryness completely.
If you follow these tips, your hair should stay healthy this winter.
