Winter Hair Care Tips You can Try Now

When we hear seasonal hair care advice, it's often geared around all things Summer. Think; dealing with humidity & frizz, minimizing chlorine damage, keeping up with healthy trims because of extra styling & damage that might be happening.

Today, I want to talk about an under represented topic; winter hair care! I especially want to inspire you to use this colder time of the year (and in years to come) as a reset opportunity for the health of your hair.


Step 1.

Take a break. Since this time of the year is known for staying in a bit more, it's a great opportunity to give your hair a rest and cut back drastically on things that damage our hair.

Personally, I like to cut my heat styling down to once every 4-5 days (instead of 1-3 days). I also got a feeling last fall that a hair clip I used frequently might have been causing breakage. Now, I've swapped it out for super soft scrunchies for my around-the-house hair do.



It's worth mentioning that there's certain things we do that can cause issues later if we take a break and we want to avoid this. The biggest one is hair color. If you've been consistently getting color or highlights (and you plan to continue to do so) stick with your regular schedule. A long break results in too much outgrowth and can create a line that's impossible to blend in.

Additionally, the only thing skipping haircuts can help is your budget. Keeping those damaged ends hanging around can lead to even more breakage and that yucky feeling that you can't wear your hair down because it never looks right.



Step 2. Try something new. I say seize the opportunity to pamper yourself! Invest in a silk or satin pillowcase that's gentle on your hair (and skin, too)! Have you been thinking about a deep conditioning treatment but you never really get around to it? As your hair stylist for a recommendation. You have options for at home treatments that you can apply 1-4 times per month, or in salon by your stylist.


Step 3. Get ready for Summer

I mention this now because I believe it's best to think ahead a bit so we don't forget! Look ahead at your schedule and decide it you want to adjust your hair maintenance schedule (shifting by a couple of weeks is perfectly fine) because of any big events you have coming up.

Will you be needing a Keratin treatment this summer? Most clients like to have their appointment between mid May and mid June to experience the best results during our humid season. Since these appointments are on the longer side, it's best to book about a month in advance.

Are you feeling inspired? Have fun choosing some pictures of new hairstyles- taking a few inches off the length always gives us more volume and brings life back to our locks.... just in time for Summer!
