How to weatherproof your hair in winter


Whether it’s dryness, frizz, knots and tangles or all of the above, winter sure can do a number on our locks. So as the cooler months approach, try these six weatherproofing tips to outwit the elements. The static stops now!

Don’t skip the trim

As you switch up your wardrobe to suit the winter chill, make sure you update your locks, too. It doesn’t have to be a major make-over, but a generous trim is a valuable investment to see you through. Say sayonara to those frazzled, damaged, summer strands and grown-out colour and get ready to flaunt fabulous, frizz-free hair.  

Limit the damage

The dry winter season messes with our hair just as much as it does our skin, so while you’re showing your body some love, spare some TLC for your locks. Turn to formulas that’ll give your hair a daily dose of salon-worthy shine, as well as a nourishing hit that’ll help to revive dull hair and tame frizz and fly aways.

Brush when wet

Hands up if you tend to fall victim to static hair during winter? You’re not alone, but it can be fixed. Brushing your hair when it’s wet (with a brush that’s designed to be used on wet hair) helps reduce static. And for all those other times when wetting your hair before you brush just isn’t an option, go metal. The brush acts as a conductor, minimising the electricity surge and regulating the static.

Nourishment is key

Treating your hair right is the only way to get it through the dryness, static, wind and frizz that arrives with winter. All that time spent huddling around the fire or cosying up on the couch with the air con blasting warm air might feel good, but in reality, is damaging your hair. Combat dry locks by incorporating a lightweight oil treatment into your weekly hair routine – just a few small drops rubbed between your palms and applied to the mid-lengths and ends will help protect your locks from environmental damage.

Turn the temperature down

While it might be the last thing you fancy when showering in winter, a final shot of cold water when washing your hair is well worth your trouble. The lower temperature helps to close the cuticle and seal in moisture from your conditioner, minimising frizz and maximising shine. Need to give your locks a wash tonight? Brace yourself.

Cut back on heat styling

Tool addicts might want to reduce heat styling during winter to avoid exacerbating the issue of dehydrated hair. Limit the number of styling sessions, protect it properly when do you, and always ensure you’re using the best tools available. Styling products like mousse and creams are ideal to use during winter, because they help give your style hold, while also protecting it from drying out due to heat exposure.

     My name is MICHEAL RACHEL. When I read a testimony online on how DR DAVID the great and most powerful spell caster helped to bring back Divorce husband or wife EX LOVER. I was wondering how this can be true, Because many have failed me in the past without any result from them. I just let the post pass by and move on to the forum. To my notice under again, Some person posted and said tested and trusted spell caster. After reading through the mail it was this same man DR DAVID she was talking about. So I have no other option than to really check up how he works. I was totally devastated when my beloved husband left me. It was like my entire world vanishing into sorrow and pain. I know it sounds weird but out of all the spell casters I contacted, he was the only one to give me that impression of being so true and trustful. More than his words, He brought my husband back and he made all my wishes come true. He is now loyal, pays attention to me, he offers me flowers every Sunday, and we often go out at the cinema and the restaurant. My husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promised never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. My family are living together happily again.. I will be forever thankful for turning my life from hell to heaven! I believe those who need help should get to him for help. May God continue to use you to save broken relationships. To every one with marital problems, divorce issues, lost lovers or any relationship related issues, you can contact DR DAVID and wonder about the ultimate spell caster. contact him on his Email Address @   His Website:: his WhatsApp +2347040654140
