Winter Hair Care Tips

It looks like we’ve finally seen the last of the triple digit temperatures in Dallas, which is a wonderful thing. But the impending cold front could end up doing some damage to your hair. That’s why it’s important to take extra steps to care for your beautiful locks this winter. Here are a few good winter hair care tips to keep in mind. 

Dry Your Hair

No one likes having to wake up an hour early to make sure their hair is completely dry, especially when that bed is so warm and inviting. But during the colder months of the year, this is extra important. Not only will this improve the strength of your hair, it could also keep you from getting sick. Walking outside with wet hair is also a real easy way to catch a cold. Another good thing to remember is to let your hair air dry (either partially or completely) prior to using a blowdryer. This helps lock in the natural moisture of your hair.

Hot Oil Treatments

The cold temperatures have a real bad habit of drying out your skin and hair, making breakage much more of a possibility. Minimize split ends with a hot oil treatment. If you don’t happen to have any hot oil laying around your house, head to the pantry. Extra virgin olive oil will also do the trick. Just apply to wet hair and put on a plastic cap or a hot towel.

Use Quality Products

While this should be common sense, the fact is most people go with the cheapest products rather than those that will help you have the healthiest hair. Consider using a sulfate-free shampoo that has less harsh chemicals that will dry out your hair. It’s also a good idea to switch to a creamier, thicker conditioner. Look for products that include natural oils to help protect your hair from the harsh weather.
