Most people tend to think that summer is the harshest season when it comes to your hair. However, winter comes with its own weather-induced frustrations like dullness, breakage, and static. Constant changes in temperature combined with dry indoor heating, long steamy showers and excessive blow-drying can leave you with dry, brittle hair. At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair salon stylists would like to provide you with the following winter hair care tips to help you maintain healthy beautiful hair all season long.
Wash Your Hair Using Warm or Cool Water
Care for your hair by avoiding hot showers or washing your hair in hot water. While we recommend washing your hair less frequently it’s important to use warm or cool water when you do. The dry winter weather combined with indoor heating can leave your hair parched and thirsty. Using hot water will only deplete your hair of its natural oils. When you do wash your hair make sure to condition and rinse your hair with cold water to close cuticles and lock in moisture.
If you need help choosing a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, call unDONE to schedule a hair consultation. Based on your individual hair care needs, our Boise hair salon stylists will recommend a hair care regimen and professional products to help you maintain healthy hair.
Use a Heat Protectant
To prevent static and heat-related damage, it’s important to avoid styling products that contain alcohol. It’s also just as important to limit your use of styling tools like curling irons, flat irons and blow dryers. When you do, be sure to use a heat protectant like Davines Heat Protecting Spray, and style your hair on the lowest heat setting.
Never Leave With Wet Hair
During the winter, it’s crucial to dry your hair before stepping out into the cold air. Going outside in the cold weather can damage your ends making them dry and brittle. It’s also just as important to cover your hair when out in the elements. Make sure to wear a hat or a cute scarf to protect and tame your tresses. It might be a surprise but the winter sun can be just as damaging as it is in the summer.
Use A Deep Conditioning Treatment
To help hydrate your hair and keep it healthy and shiny, use a deep conditioning treatment. While you can purchase a hot oil or deep conditioning treatment at the grocery store, our Boise hair salon stylists recommend making an appointment for a deep conditioning treatment. Not only will a professional deep conditioning treatment help with dryness, it will also help with annoying winter static and knots.
