The Winter season is upon us and we need to be ready to protect our bodies, skin and especially our hair from the blistery weather. This season I am putting an emphasis in this area with all my clients. The longer that I am in this field I find that we have to constantly remind ourselves and our clients of these tips to ensure we protect our hair this winter.
Tip #1. Deep Condition
Ok. This is major. I can not tell you how much I hear during the winter months that my hair feels dry. Because of the lack of moisture we need to make sure that we replenish our hair. It is a good idea to do this 1-2 times a month for best results. Using a deep conditioner like it’s a miracle will help your hair to feel great this winter.
Tip #2. Wrap or Secure your hair at night
This is so important. No matter how you wear your hair, it needs to be protected from rubbing and tangles at night. Using a silk or satin scarf will help to alleviate this problem. If you are not a scarf wearer secure you hair loosely with a ponytail holder. This ponytail holder will not leave creases in your strands.
Tip #3. Get regular trims
Don’t believe the hype! You must trim your ends. Split ends travel up the hair shaft and the result is broken hair. Tell your clients about my husbands “rope theory”. A rope is bound or created with many pieces. If one unravels and you don’t cut and seal that end, eventually there will be no rope. The same applies to your hair.
TIP #4. Drink water and take Vitamins
Check with your doctor to see if a vitamin regimen would benefit you at this time. I am almost 100% sure that they will encourage this. We lead such busy lives that it is very difficult to get our daily vitamin intake from food alone. Drink plenty of water. I have to be honest, I am still working on this myself. We all know that water is so important to our body in many ways.
This list could go on and on, but I think these 4 tips are really major when it comes to our hair and the winter weather. If you have your own personal tips or winter regimens, I would love to hear about them. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
