Maintain Gorgeous, Healthy Hair this Winter

As we delve further and further into the winter season, the temperature is only continuing to drop. While many may associate this time of year with delicate snow flurries and warm nights by the fire, others dread it for the terrible effects that it can have on the look and feel of your hair. Maintain Gorgeous, Healthy Hair this Winter

 

In order to protect your strands from the harsh winter elements and maintain healthy, gorgeous hair all year round, take a look at these great tips:

 

Invest in a Silk Head Scarf – Winter beanie hats are still on-trend this year but if you’re anything like us, you can’t stand the inevitable hat-head and static electricity that they cause. Wrapping your hair in a silk scarf before putting on that beanie will help protect it from winter damage and will limit its contact with the static-causing material of the hat.

 

Have Your Ends Trimmed Often – The biggest complaint we hear about the effects of winter weather on your hair is that the air leads to dryness and cracked, split ends. Why? Well, due to the fact that the temperature outside has dropped dramatically, most of the air’s humidity has completely vanished. No humidity – no moisture for your hair; hence the breakage. To combat this, have your hair trimmed or lightly dusted every six to eight weeks.

 

Deep Conditioning – This treatment helps to get deep into your roots and restore that moisture to your locks. You may think that just because you stay indoors more during the winter that you have nothing to worry about, but think again. That dry air inside your home and the excessive use of your blow dryer are certainly taking their toll. If possible, set up an appointment for a deep conditioning treatment once a week with Knick Salon and Spa.

 

Of course, these are just a few of the great days you can preserve the look and overall health of your hair this upcoming season. For more tips, be sure to ask your stylist during your next appointment!
