1. Minimise Washing Hair

During the cold wintery months, try to reduce the amount of times you wash your hair. Keep it to two to three times a week. The aim of the game here it to prevent your hair from drying out, and to encourage your natural oils to thrive.


  1. Deep Conditioning

You don’t want to over wash your hair, but you also don’t want to neglect it! It is good idea to treat your hair once a week to a deep conditioning treatment, to help replenish the moisture that is lost from dry heat inside and also from the cold winter air outside. Stay away from products with sulphates and look for those with hydrating ingredients like panthenol, such as Amir Argan Oil Deep Conditioning Mask.


  1. Use Hair Oils

Use hair oils, such as argan, coconut, or avocado oil to smooth over and tame your frizzy, dry looking hair. Try Amir Argan Oil Leave in Treatment which will help seal the hair shaft, nourish your stands and boost shine.


  1. Moisturize your Scalp

Look after your scalp this winter. Being constantly in and out of artificial heat causes not only our hair to dry out, but also your skin! A flaky scalp is not uncommon during winter month, so before bed apply a moisturiser or oil directly to your scalp and massage in. Do not do this frequently, only once or twice a week. The next morning be sure to shampoo, rinse well and condition. If you still have a flaky scalp, you might have a dandruff problem – not to worry there are plenty of anti-dandruff shampoos.


  1. Dry your hair

As your mother would say, “you don’t want to catch a cold”. You know she’s right! Make sure you dry your hair before going outside. Not only that, but the moisture in your hair combined with the cold air will add further damage causing it to become brittle.


  1. Use Protection

Given that we’ve told you not to go outside with wet hair, you’re most likely to use your hair dryer more. Not to mention, if you come home soaked you’ll definitely need to blow-dry your wet locks. Now is the most important time to use heat-protecting products like OSMO-Straightening Fluid before blasting hot air on your hair. Also, even though you’re freezing, resist the urge to use the highest heat setting and give your hair a quick blast of cooler air to smooth over those cuticles and prevent further damage.


  1. Regular Trims

Make sure you treat your hair to regular trims this winter. As we’ve established, the dry weather causes split ends making your hair look dry and frizzy. Getting regular trims will get rid of those split ends, and keep your hair looking healthy and sleek during these cold months.


  1. Embrace el Natural

Winter time is a good time to embrace your natural locks, and guess what!? Winter 2016 trends are showing natural texture is in. Try incorporating no-heat hairstyles as well. The less damage from styling tools the better. Try plaiting your hair before bed, and wake up in the morning with perfectly styled curls. Hey presto – you’re ready to go!


  1. Humidifier

While we spend so much time trying to keep things dry during winter, we actually end up depriving not only our hair, but our skin, of moisture. A humidifier will restore this moisture by infusing the air with tiny droplets, preventing your hair and skin feeling dry, and actually help you breathe easier to. You can even put essential oils in your humidifier! Aromatruth has a great range, our personal fav at TBS is Pure Ylang Ylang.


  1. Silk Pillows

Sleeping on silk pillows will help your hair remain tame, and reduces split ends. The  natural properties of silk, as well as its smooth surface, keeps your hair silky no matter how much you toss in your sleep, and reduce damage at the same time.


So here’s to healthy winter hair! If you have any more suggestions feel free to let us know.
