The colder, dryer months are certainly here. This means that it’s time to rethink your winter haircare routine, so that your beautiful hair can remain healthy come the cooler season. As we say goodbye to the warmer months and the weather gets cooler, several hair issues including dry scalp,  increased moisture loss (dry hair), increased frizz, and annoying split ends can appear. To help you enrich your hair this winter so that your hair remains vibrant during the dormant months, we’ve gathered a few tips to help you get back through to summer!

Invest in a quality hair mask

An excellent way to give your locks some added love is to apply a hair treatment or mask once or twice a week. Soothe and protect your hair from the cold elements with a luxury mask such as the Ahava’s Deep Nourishing Hair Mask, Simply Divine! Or try the Awapuhl Wild Ginger Keratin Intensive Treatment which is best suited for dry, damaged hair. It will deeply condition and repair whilst repairing and protects vulnerable hair. You can use your Hair Mask every time you wash your hair or every few washes, depending on the condition of your hair and what it needs. 

Nourish your hair with a leave-in conditioner.

The best leave-in treatment for dry hair has to be Paul Mitchell’s Everyday leave-in treatment. This clean beauty treatment nourishes hair and adds hydration in a lightweight, silicone-free conditioner cream that won't weigh hair down. Infused with organic, cold-pressed argan oil and succulent aloe vera, it delivers hydration and shine to transform dull hair. Just apply it to damp hair and style it as normal each day.

Paul Mitchell Shampoo and Conditioner

Hydration, Hydration, Hydration.

Make sure that you are using good quality shampoo and conditioner. This can be a tricky one, and can sometimes take some time to find your fave, however, it is important not to be using anything that is too drying or that is not suitable for your hair type. It is always helpful to speak with your hairdresser, or haircare specialist should you be unsure as to which shampoo and conditioner may be best for your hair. Take a look at our range of haircare products that may also help narrow your selection down.

Help your scalp

With a lack of moisture in the cooler months, the scalp produces less sebum, which can result in an itchy, irritated and dry scalp. Introducing a scalp brush can make a huge difference. The CanGro Hero Scalp Brush helps you Massage your way to a healthier scalp. This silicone scalp brush exfoliates buildup and cleanses your scalp to promote hair growth, eliminate dandruff, and help with scalp troubles. Its smooth silicone bristles help exfoliate dead skin cells and impurities while stimulating blood flow for a healthier scalp. Bliss!

Protect your hair

We know that it can be uncomfortable to let your hair air-dry during the cold winter months. However, by allowing your hair to dry naturally, you help it to retain moisture and you protect it from damaging hot styling tools. Heat styling is not an absolute No No, but always make sure you do all that you can to protect when styling. We love Paul Mitchell Hot off the Press. This quick-drying thermal protection hairspray helps protect strands when using curling irons and flat irons. It contains rice hull extract that builds a lightweight barrier between hair and heat styling tools, while wheat proteins boost hair's strength. The flexible-hold, humidity-resistant frizz-fighting formula is the perfect finishing touch for any style-curly or straight.
