Not every day can be a great hair day. When the weather doesn't cooperate, your go-to styling routine may not do the trick.
Follow these tips to protect your hair and look great, even when cold weather gets in the way.
Avoid The Dreaded Flat Hair
Do you notice your normally bouncy style falling flat in the winter? You're not alone.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to bring back the volume. Start with daily scalp massages. You'll stimulate hair growth and boost your roots.
Styling products like a volumizing spray can help. And when you need to wear a hat to protect you from the elements, just throw your hair into a bun first. When you get back inside, just take out the elastic and give your hair a quick shake to bring it back to life.
Don't Skimp On Moisture
Dryness is a common and annoying issue for hair in the winter months. Dryness can lead to a flaky scalp, hair breakage, and a dull appearance.
Fight back with a conditioner. Use extra conditioner when you shower and try out a deep conditioning treatment twice a week to replace the moisture that's lost to the cold, dry weather.
Keep It Cool
Heat is an enemy for your hair in the winter. While hot showers may feel great when the temperatures drop, the hot water can do major damage to your strands. Rinsing in cool, even cold, water can help to keep your hair healthy and shiny.
When styling, cut back on heating tools like hairdryers and straighteners, which will dry out your hair. If you do need to use heat for styling, be sure to use a heat protecting spray first.
