Cold weather can wreak havoc on your hair and scalp during winter, causing dryness and static. Instead of wrapping your locks in a scarf for the entire season, try these five genius hair hacks that will transform your look instantly.
Tip 1: Cold air plus low humidity equals flyaway hairs that are uncontrollable. Combat this messy look by pushing a dryer sheet through the bristles of your hairbrush. Style as usual for static-free, smooth results.
Tip 2: Moisturizing is essential! Snobgirls' Hydramend Prowash Shampoo is enriched with hydrating proteins and essential oils and formulated especially for dry strands. Use a hyper-moisturizing conditioner, like Pureology's Hydrate Conditioner to restore vitality to parched hair. Use a deep conditioner like Sudzz FX's Moxie Reconstructing Conditioner weekly for intense nourishment.
Tip 3: During winter, massages are more essential than ever—for your scalp! To combat dryness, massage a hydrating product, like PRAVANA's Nevo Hydra Pearl Replenishing Hair Oil, to your scalp for about a minute. Be thorough, yet gentle, by kneading the scalp to stimulate blood flow. Shampoo and condition as usual when you’re done to prevent any product buildup.
Tip 4: Silky pillowcases not only feel great, but also benefit your hair during wintertime. They help reduce friction, a war your hair valiantly wages all season long. Silk (or satin) also leaves it less prone to breakage.
Tip 5: Sometimes you just can’t create a stylish look that looks pulled together. The updo, an easy winter option that takes you from desk to date without a hitch, always looks polished. Twist it into a loose French knot and add sparkling bobby pins to dress it up, or try a low ponytail secured with a glittery hair tie.
