7 Winter hair care tips for Women

The weather is getting chilly across most of the country, and with that comes many exciting things! From gearing up for the holidays, more nights cuddled on the couch, and fabulous fall fashion, it also means stepping up your skin and hair care routines. You may have plenty of tips and trips for glowy skin in the winter, but have you been neglecting your hair? Whether starting from square one with winter hair care or looking for a refresher this season, keep reading for the essential things that will keep your hair shiny and beautiful this holiday season.

Cover It Up

While we're getting ready to dive into the products and routines that will care for your hair during chilly weather, it will all be for naught if you don't cover it up! If you don't already have a cute beanie or hat for winter weather, consider this your sign to buy one. While you don't need to cover your hair every time you go outside in cold weather, when it's snowing, or temperatures are below forty degrees, it's smart to cover your hair. Not to mention, you'll be more comfortable and warm!

Deep Condition

If you're like many women, you're doing a weekly deep conditioning treatment in your hair. If you've never done one, it's time to invest in a hydrating hair mask that can restore moisture to your hair during cold weather. When you get your hair styled during the winter, add keratin or other deep conditioning treatment in the salon. Cool air zaps moisture from your hair, so replenishing it is essential.

Pro Styling Tools

Any time you add heat to your hair, it's critical that you use heat-protectant products. But another key piece to styling your hair with heat is investing in the right tools. Pro styling tools may seem like a significant investment upfront, but the health and appearance of your locks are worth it. Your hair is one of the first things people notice about you, and keeping it styled and beautiful is easier when you have the right tools in your toolkit. Always purchase the highest quality you can afford from blow dryers, flat irons, or curlers.

Hydrating Humidifiers

Many people sleep with humidifiers during the winter for their health benefits, but did you know they protect and beautify your hair too? Humidifiers restore vital moisture in your home's air, which means they're keeping the moisture in your hair too! The best part? You're keeping your hair healthy during the winter in your sleep without lifting a finger.

Cool Water Showers

You may think the last thing you want on a cold winter morning is a cold shower, but if you're trying to keep your hair beautiful, it's just what the doctor ordered. Cold showers have many health benefits beyond your hair, like improved circulation, reduced pain, and lowering inflammation. However, the benefit is clear in hair health, with less breakage, brittle texture, and split ends. Wash your hair with lukewarm water and finish with the coldest rinse you can stand.

Regular Appointments

While most of us know, we need to get our hair trimmed every six to eight weeks, if we're being honest, we don't follow through. With winter weather's ability to wreak havoc on our hair, commit to getting regular trims done throughout the cold weather season. Your hair will look and feel healthier, so you'll be camera ready for all the photos you take throughout the holiday season.

Wash Less Often

Unless your hair is prone to significant oil and grease, foregoing shampooing during the week is fantastic for healthy winter hair. If you typically wash your hair three times a week, aim for once a week. If you're a daily hair washer, cut it down to twice a week. Your hair needs to retain oil and moisture to stay healthy in frigid temperatures, and one of the easiest ways to boost it is to stop stripping it with too frequent shampooing.

Taking care of your hair in the winter should also include using oils to revive your hair in the morning and never leaving the house with wet hair. It may seem like a lot to manage, but with practice comes perfection. Here's to your perfect winter hair!
