You can feel it in the air, winter is coming which typically means, plenty of “bad hair days” urgh!
We all know that having a bad hair day is the worst accessory for your outfit, wherever you are going and so keeping your mane in prime condition is pretty high on the priority list. As the weather changes, our hair tends to get frizzier, dryer, start breaking and generally not looking as glossy as it did pre-cold weather. Here are some great and easy tips you can do yourself to outwit the elements and keep your hair looking fabulous throughout winter.
Get a good trim
In order for your hair to look as good as it possibly can, say your goodbyes to any damaged and frizzy ends as a good trim can really help to improve the appearance of your hair. Get rid of damaged ends and grown-out colour and say hello to a healthier, fresher looking mane.
Use good quality hair-care products
Use a good brush for wet hair
You may have been told not to brush your hair when it’s wet as it will cause breakage. This is certainly true if you are using a regular brush as it will lot more tension on the hair strands but waiting until your hair is dry can take ages and by blow drying your hair, you will only add to the actual damage which obviously is what you are trying to avoid. No wonder when Tangle Teezer brought out their new Wet Detangler we knew that we would become obsessed.
“With 325 unique teeth that flex over tangles and knots with every single stroke, hair is quickly detangled confidently whilst helping to reduce breakage.”
The perfect tool for all you boys and girls who hasn’t got time to wait for your hair to dry naturally , wehey!
Nourish your hair from within
Nutrition plays a huge part in how your skin and hair looks and feels. A diet lacking in Vitamin A, C, B, Iron and Zinc will result in brittle looking hair which gets damaged easily. Fatty essential acids are also vital in order to keep your hair looking glossy. Eat plenty of vitamin rich foods such as broccoli, spinach, red and yellow peppers, pumpkin seeds (and pumpkins as they contain plenty of Vitamin A), salmon or if you are vegan, chia seeds. To ensure you get enough B vitamins and Iron choose brown rice over white and incorporate oatmeal, eggs and fortified bread or cereal.
Use a 100% silk pillow case
This means you can weather-proof your hair in your sleep. The theory with hair-friendly pillow cases is that strands glide against silk whereas they can catch or rub against other regular pillow case fabrics. The switch results in less frizz and fewer flyaways.
So there we have it, 5 things that can really help you keep the frizz at bay this winter. What are your favorite hair products? Please let us know in the comments below 🙂
