Healthy Winter Hair Tips to keep your tresses gorgeous through winter

Essential to your winter beauty regime is caring for your hair. Long tresses are still the ultimate look right now, with the trend flowing seamlessly from summer into winter yet unfortunately, the caring for them in summer is easier than in the cool dry months.


Healthy winter hair…

Thankfully there is no need to give them the chop because we have the best tips for beautiful, healthy winter hair.



Hair dressers have been peddling Aragan Oil and Moroccan Oil for a while now as a frizz deterrent and to add shine to thick, coarse hair. However, they are also great to use as treatments for dry brittle hair in winter. Unrefined coconut oil is now also recognised as a great natural oil treatment for your tresses.


Always put an oil treatment through your hair is before washing as it is better absorbed. A few hours before washing, work a generous amount of oil through your hair from scalp to ends.  Gently massage your scalp to stimulate blood flow, comb the oil through with a wide tooth comb to avoid breakages and wind up in a loose bun and put on a shower cap to trap in the heat from your scalp.



Treat your tresses…

After a few hours wash as normal with shampoo and only lightly condition the very ends.  Your hair will be hydrated, shine with health. Depending on the length and thickness of your hair do this at least once or twice a week for healthy winter hair.

Use heat protection…


Ironically, the season when our hair needs hot styling tools the least is when we tend to use them the most. Hair driers are by far the worst offender. Especially if you have long or thick hair, the last thing you want is you wait for your hair to dry naturally when it is cold.


Try and let leave the hair drier alone as often as possible whether it is on a particularly sunny day or if you are staying at home and can keep warm. Otherwise, make sure you always use a heat protector product before drying for healthy winter hair, even if is just a quick blast to the roots.


The second worst offender is that curling iron or GHD. We all know winter spells flat, dull hair unless you style it as there is almost zero moisture in the air. Again, try and give your hair a couple days off a week at least and when you do heat style it, always put on a heat protector for healthy winter hair.

Be kind and braid it…

Remember that even if you are giving your hair treatments and protecting  it from heat when you style it, the elements are still taking their toll so the key to healthy winter hair is to be kind to it. Get regular trims, don’t wash it too often as it strips the natural oils froim your scalp and use a wide-tooth comb to remove tangles to avoid breakages.

For those of you with long hair , if you are a city dweller, tie it up whenever you can to protect it from pollution as well as the cold. This season braids are on trend in a big way, whether it is a long over the shoulder braid or a bohemian style braided up-do. The perfect way to look hot and look after your healthy winter hair
