In this blog, we wanted to take some time to offer you winter hair care tips. We know that dealing with your hair in the winter can be frustrating and difficult. Especially if you have long hair, it is likely that you have pulled a sweater over your head only to have your hair get instantly staticky. Read on for winter hair care tips.
Avoid Heat Styling
While heat styling tools are bad for your hair in general, they are even worse during the cold winter months. When you use a blow dryer, you are drawing moisture out of your hair, which can increase breakage. Using other heat styling tools, like a flat iron and curling iron during the winter can also cause extreme damage to your hair. Since your hair is extra delicate during this time of year, using these tools will make matters worse. During the winter, try to embrace your natural hair as much as possible. Take showers in the evening so your hair can dry at night and test out hairstyles like braids, buns, and twists.
Make Sure Your Hair is Dry
Before you head out into the cold weather, you will want to make sure that your hair is completely dry. Wet hair is more vulnerable to damage than dry hair, so walking outside with wet hair when the temperatures are below freezing can really ruin your hair. The best option is to wash your hair in the evening so it can dry naturally overnight, but if you are in a hurry and shower in the morning, blow-drying your hair is better than walking into freezing temperatures with wet hair.
