You’ve read plenty about winterizing your car, your house, even your wardrobe. But there’s little written about how to winterize that crowning glory of yours—your hair!
You might think there’s little you can do to prepare your hair for colder months, but that’s just not true. After all, think back to last year and you’ll remember those seasonal symptoms: Static electricity, brittle ends, overall dryness—all coupled with a desire to put your head under a tub of bubbly hot water until spring.
Never fear! To get ahead of the season, here are some recommendations from Brick & Mirror Beauty Bar that will revive your spirit—and your hair—so you can start the season off right:
Make Deep Conditioners Your Friend: We’ve told you about the importance of deep conditioning your hair during the summer months, but it’s equally important to keep that tube or tub handy when the weather gets gold. Rich and luxurious products like It’s a 10 Hair Care Miracle Deep Conditioner Plus Keratin can restore your winter tresses to spring-like softness. All it takes is 5-10 minutes and this weekly elixir will help to reverse damage and restore healthy manageability and shine.
Repair, Restore, Re-surface: In addition to deep conditioners, new weekly or even monthly treatments can make cold-weather hair feel wonderfully alive. Milk Shake Integrity Repairing Hair Treatments contain a concentrated protein and amino acids to repair, restructure and strengthen damaged and chemically treated hair. This product contains Muru Muru butter and amino acids complex, a mixture of plant amino acids developed to give damaged hair a healthy repair. And for daily use, try Milk Shake Incredible Milk 12 Effects Leave-In Treatment. Named “Best Hair Treatment of 2016” at the Beauty Short List Awards, this is one product you won’t want to be without. And don’t forget: Leave-in conditioners are a great way to limit static from giving you that fly-away look. Lastly, after shampooing and conditioning, finish with a cool rinse, which seems to work wonders quite naturally to reduce static, flyaway locks.
Do Try this at Home: In addition to hair care products, don’t forget that drinking lots of pure water, turning down the heat at home and investing in a humidifier can add the water and hydration we need for all parts of us to feel happy and healthy during colder weather. We may love to stay indoors during winter weather (and complain about summer’s humidity), but the lack of moisture in our centrally heated homes can dry not only hair but skin, nails and nasal passages.
So, drink up (water, that is), deep condition and don’t forget—in six more months, it will feel like spring again.
