Tips For Protecting Your Hair This Winter
1st Feb 2014
If you have colored hair, the cold winter weather can be especially damaging. The dry air, cold temperatures, and harsh winds can strip moisture from your hair, fade your color, and leave it feeling dry and brittle. To protect your colored hair this winter, follow these tips:
Wear a hat: One of the simplest and most effective ways to protect your hair from the cold is to wear a hat. Choose a hat that covers your head and ears completely, such as a beanie or a woolen toque. This will help to keep your hair warm and protected from the wind.
Use a leave-in conditioner: A leave-in conditioner can help to add moisture and protect your hair from the elements. Look for one that is formulated specifically for colored hair, as these will often contain ingredients that help to preserve your color.
Avoid hot water: Hot water can strip moisture from your hair, so try to avoid washing your hair with very hot water during the winter. Instead, use lukewarm water, which will be gentler on your hair and scalp.
Dry your hair gently: After washing your hair, be gentle when you're drying it. Avoid rubbing it with a towel, as this can cause tangles and breakage. Instead, gently pat it dry with a towel or let it air dry.
Use a deep conditioning treatment: A deep conditioning treatment can help to add moisture and nourishment to your hair, which is especially important during the winter when the air is dry. Try using Herbatint Royal Cream conditioner, a salon-quality product made with natural ingredients that is gentle enough to use during the winter months.Apply after washing your hair with Herbatint Normalizing Shampoo, apply the conditioner starting at the ends, and work it up toward the scalp.
