Winter Hair Care Tips

4 easy ways to keep hair at its shining best in the darker months.

Wintertime brings a season of holidays, celebrations—and dry, frizzy hair! With some extra pampering hair can stay healthy, shiny and manageable in colder weather—plus, you'll look good at your holiday parties and in holiday pictures.

Follow these four solutions for keeping your hair looking top-notch all winter long:

1. Hydration
Hair gets super dry from the combo of cold winter air and indoor heat. To avoid damage, treat your hair like you would your skin and restore moisture in your body:

  • Use a humidifier to add moisture to the air.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Eat leafy greens such as kale and spinach.
  • Try a leave-in conditioner on your tresses to tame frizzes and static ends.

2. Check your styling
Over-styling during cooler months can cause breakage and dull, lifeless locks.

  • Give your hair a rest. Skip a blow-dry or hot iron for a day.
  • Use a diffuser or airdry hair before you go outside—icy chill freezes wet strands and causes damage.
  • Keep hair trimmed and split-end free.
  • Use styling products with extra hydration, such as Pantene's Silky Moisture Whip and Herbal Essence Split End Protector.
  • Avoid alcohol or silicone-based gels, which are more drying.

3. Put your hat on
Hats are a great way to protect hair from harsh conditions, but take precautions against the "flat head" look. To keep your style bouncing back:

  • Twist long hair into a topknot or high ponytail before tucking under hat. Shake loose and fluff roots to restyle.
  • Pull medium-length hair back and up on both sides and secure with barrettes.
  • Twist short locks into several knots, pulling up and back.

4. Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Check that your conditioner matches your hair type. Coarse, curly hair needs heavy conditioning while finer hair needs a light formula that won't weigh it down. Apply two inches from the scalp (avoiding the roots) and work down to the ends. Indulge in a hair masque or extra treatment:

  • Use a deep conditioner or conditioning mask weekly, such as Aussie's 3-Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner.
  • Try a 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner then add extra conditioner to your ends.
  • To restore gloss and shine, rub argan or coconut oil into wet or dry hair and leave in for a few minutes or overnight. H&S All Natural Hair Oil contains organic oils and is great for all hair types.

Now that your hair is looking great for holiday parties, holiday photos will be a snap!
