The top 3 winter hair issues and how to combat them!
The festive season is upon us and that means a whole host of parties, cosy layers, lots of delicious food and, of course, the chilly weather.
The cold temperatures, rain and wind can play havoc with your hair. Here are just three ways to help solve those winter hair issues and keep you looking and feeling great this season.
The annual pre-Christmas shed isn’t just for squeezing into that party dress. You may naturally shed more hair as the months get colder, which will make your hair appear thinner than usual. One of the most effective ways to combat lifeless hair is to use hair extensions. These can look great if you find the right product for you.
Extensions made from human hair will make your hair look as natural as possible, but it’s important to colour match and choose a similar texture to your own hair to get the best look. Using extensions will give you extra volume, length and thickness. It will also give you that extra wow factor for a festive season full of parties.
Dry hair and scalp
As winter approaches, bringing blustering winds and cold temperatures with it, your hair will feel the effects. The chilly weather absorbs all the moisture from your hair follicles making it appear dull, lifeless and damaged and it’s not uncommon to have your hair break altogether. Even the typical office heating can dry out your hair and scalp, making it prone to brittle ends and dandruff.
But have no fear, there is a solution. Refrain from washing your hair every day, as this can strip the hair from its natural oils. When you do come to wash it, choose a shampoo and conditioner that’s made with natural ingredients such as coconut oil, milk, honey and argan oil. This will nourish your hair and scalp without using nasty, harsh chemicals.
You don’t need to choose between a warm, woolly hat and perfect hair this winter, but there may be side effects that come with donning your favourite headwear. Although that red beret may look fabulous, once you take it off you hair may follow, as synthetic materials can make your hair stand up.
Choosing a hat that’s made from 100% cotton or wool will help combat static hair. If your hat is made from mixed materials, there’s another easy way to beat the instant frizz. Running your fingers lightly through your hair after you’ve applied hand moisturiser will get rid of any loose strays. You can also use dry shampoo to give your hair the extra lift it needs.
It really is that easy! Following these handy tips will help combat the most common winter hair issues.
