Winter weather can take a toll on your hair. The cold air can actually dry out your hair and leave it more susceptible to breakage. The lower temperatures can also lead you to take steps that further damage your hair. To help ensure that your hair is the healthiest possible throughout the winter, here are some tips for maintaining your hair.
Amp Up the Moisture
Since the cold air can cause your hair to be drier than usual, you need to focus on adding more moisture to it. One way is to opt for a shampoo and conditioner that contains moisturizer. Moisturizing shampoos and conditioners tend to have water listed as the first ingredient.
When selecting shampoo and conditioner, avoid those containing sulfates. Sulfates can strip your hair of its moisture and cause it to appear duller than usual. Sulfates also can strip away the hair coloring.
At least once a month, head to the hair salon to have your hair deep conditioned by a stylist. Deep conditioners help to replace the moisture loss due to cold air. It also can help prepare and protect your hair if you are using appliances to dry and style your hair.
Get a Trim
You probably know that trimming your hair is important in the war against dead ends, but what you might not realize is that it can help to retain your hair length. When your hair has dead ends, that can lead to split ends. Splits can extend to the roots of the hair, which results in breakage and slowing of hair growth.
Your hair will let you know when it is time to get a trim. The most obvious sign is split ends. You should also get a trim if your hair seems less fuller or the ends appear to be dull. If you are still in doubt, visit your local hair salon for an assessment of your hair's condition.
A hat or cap can be one of the most important tools you have at your disposal in the winter. A hat can help limit the amount of exposure your hair gets to the winter air.
Hats and caps can generate friction, which can cause hair breakage. To avoid this breakage, opt for a hat with a silk lining. If your hat does not have a lining, you can simply wrap a silk scarf over your hair before putting on the hat.Share

Hello, my name is Nina. Welcome to my site about having your hair dyed and styled at the salon. I started going gray at about 30 years of age. As the gray hairs overwhelmed my formerly gorgeous locks, I knew that I needed a quick solution. Unfortunately, the box hair dye products didn't always work well and the results did not last nearly long enough. I started to go to salons to rectify the problem and was instantly hooked. I will use this site to talk about the different dye products and techniques used in the salon. I will also talk about salon styles for your hair.
