Imagine styling your hair perfectly and at the end of the day you end up with a frizzy mess on your head. As depressing as it sounds, this is what it feels like every day in the winter. Now that it’s season to layer up over a warm beverage, the nightmare of dry, frizzy hair days is on the horizon. The cold dry wind outside and the warm cozy room inside affect your hair very badly, resulting in tangled, messy, frizzy and completely unmanageable hair. On top of that, this season is also filled with some major celebrations and the thought of having those curly locks is enough to make us cringe. And if you’re already terrified by the thought of that, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.
Here we have listed some essential tips that you can keep as your holy grail throughout the colder months to tame your frizzy tresses.
Hydration is key: Cold, dry air strips your hair of its natural moisture, leaving your hair vulnerable to frizz. The only way to overcome this is to stay hydrated. You should drink plenty of water to maintain overall hydration. You can make some dietary changes to help this process as well. You should also add a deep conditioning treatment to your hair care essentials to lock in moisture in your hair and keep it smoothly shiny.
Gentle shampoo: To keep your hair looking as healthy as ever, you need to be very aware of what you’re putting in your hair. For shampoo, you should find a product that is moisturizing and sulfate-free to prevent your hair from becoming too dry. Otherwise, as the season changes, you can consider reducing the number of times you wash your hair. It can help maintain natural oil and keep your locks moisturized. As tempting as it is to take a hot shower on winter mornings, you should avoid it and opt for lukewarm water instead. This protects your hair from dryness.
Avoid heat styling: Another measure that you should take is to reduce the use of hair dryer and hair styling equipment to a minimum. Protective hairstyles can keep your hair away from the harsh elements. Braids, buns and twists can help protect your hair from cold winds, reducing its exposure to moisture-losing conditions.
Silk pillowcases: You should also replace the cotton pillowcase with a silk one. Unlike cotton, silk reduces friction, helps reduce moisture loss, and prevents unnecessary wrinkling. Your hair will glide smoothly across the silk surface, reducing the possibility of your strands getting tangled.
Leave-in conditioner: This is a good time to drop some coin on a high-quality leave-in conditioner that will provide your hair with continuous moisture throughout the day. Apply a small amount to your damp hair, and be generous on the ends, to keep the hair frizz-free. This extra layer of water acts as a barrier against harsh winter weather.
By incorporating these easy and effective tips into your winter hair care routine, you will be able to enjoy smooth, frizz-free hair despite difficult weather conditions.
