It is officially winter, so if you live in an area that experiences a major drop in temperature, you should know that the cold winds, dry air and snow can be harsh on your hair. Just like how you protect your skin, your hair should be protected as well.

Here are our top eight hair care tips to will ensure your hair and scalp is healthy this winter!

Tip 1: Protect your hair from the elements

Before heading outdoors, cover your head with a hat, hood or scarf to shield it from the wintery conditions.

Make sure that your head covering is not too tight, since it can restrict circulation.

Tip 2: Keep your scalp moisturized

Since winter can bring on dry scalp, we recommend you use a balm, like our scalp conditioner, to ensure that your scalp is optimally moisturized.

Our balm contains peppermint essential oil, which stimulate the scalp and help with scalp irritation.

Tip 3: Keep your hair hydrated

The winter season can cause more split ends and breakage, so it is important to hydrate your hair.

To keep each strand of your hair hydrated, use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.

Tip 4: Stay hydrated from within

You should keep your hair hydrated on the outside and from within. Be sure drink enough water to give your hair the hydration it needs for healthy hair growth.

Tip 5: Limit the use of heat on your hair

During the winter season, you want to apply as little heat to your hair as possible.

So, if you rely on hair dryers, flat irons, try to limit your usage.

Too much heat can cause your hair and scalp to become very dry, which is definitely not ideal during the winter season.

Tip 6: Try to avoid heading outdoors with wet hair

If you head outside with wet hair, the cold can freeze the strands and lead to breakage

Before heading outside, make sure that your hair is thoroughly dried. You may air dry, towel dry or use a small burst warm air from your blow dryer to dry your hair.

Tip 7: Reduce static

The material of your sweaters, hats and scarves can cause your hair to build up a static electricity.

By keeping your hair conditioned, static is less likely to happen. You can combat hair static by using a moisturizing shampoo and leave-in conditioner.

Tip 8: Trim your split ends

The cold weather often causes hair breakage and split ends.

To maintain hair health, trim your hair!

You should aim to get your hair trimmed every six to eight weeks.

And there you have it!

By following the tips listed above, your hair will look and feel great this winter season!
