Earlier this month we blogged about Winter Hair Care Tips. Why? Because dry hair, frizz, and unwanted static are common complaints we often hear of during the winter months. During this time of year, people often forget to protect their hair from the harsh elements and the drying effects of indoor heat. However, there’s no reason to feel the winter blues due to bad hair days! At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair salon stylists have put together some great tips to help you keep your lovely locks looking their best.
Replenish Lost Oils & Lock in Moisture
During the winter, it’s especially important to deep condition your hair weekly. This doesn’t mean leaving your normal conditioner in longer. Deep conditioners are designed to penetrate your hair deeper, delivering nutrients to the shaft while locking in moisture.
Boise Hair Salon Tip: Consult with your unDONE Stylist to determine what kind of deep conditioner will work best for your hair type.
Hydrate When You Wash
During the summer, you often require clarifying shampoo to rid your hair of chlorine and mineral buildup. In the winter, however, you need as much moisture as you can possibly get to combat static and frizz. That’s why it’s important to choose a hydrating shampoo for your winter hair care.
Boise Hair Salon Tip: Over-washing can actually strip your hair and scalp of essential oils drying it out in the process. Try not to wash your hair as often as you did during the hot summer months.
Don’t Over Dry Your Hair
During the winter it’s important to avoid unnecessary heat. Try using your blow dryer and other styling tools on their lowest setting and using a thermal protectant to reduce moisture loss and protect hair from damage.
Boise Hair Salon Tip: If you’re a flat iron diva, you may want to visit unDONE Salon for a smoothing treatment. Keratin smoothing treatments use keratin to fill in gaps in your hair’s cuticle. This will help strengthen hair while reducing frizz and boosting shine in the process.
Combat Static With Dryer Sheets
While dryer sheets are meant to get the static out of your clothing, they can equally work their magic on your hair when you’re in a pinch. Simply swipe your hair with a dryer sheet to help reduce unwanted static.
Boise Hair Salon Tip: To help combat static, keep a small packet of dryer sheets in your bathroom or rub a sheet through your hair in the morning as part of your daily routine.
