How Should Your Hair Care Routine Change for the Winter?

Your hair care routine should change with the seasons. Read on for wintertime hair care tips... and the sins that could leave you with split ends!

Trying to keep your hair from looking like a dried out Christmas tree this winter? The following tips can keep your locks healthy and lovely while the snow falls and winds whip outside.

Make Sure to Moisturize 

One of the biggest factors that will impact your hair this winter is dryness. If your hair is too dry, you can kiss it goodbye! Make sure to grab a product like Nutritive Lait Vital by Kerastase to keep your locks from turning into a mini-desert on your head. (All Kerastase products 20% off Thursday, December 20th, 2012 at Jyl Craven Hair Design.)

If that’s not enough, make an appointment for a deep conditioning treatment. Once a month should do the trick until warmer temperatures roll around.

Don’t Wash As Often  (Trust Me!)

Wait, didn’t we just say to moisturize more? Yes, but water and shampoo can actually strip you of the essential oils and vitamins your hair needs in the wintertime. If you shampoo once a day, cut back to every other day or even every three days to maintain health.

Blow Dry & Cover Up 

Running late for work and just going to hit the road with a wet head? Then kiss your healthy hair goodbye and say hello to split ends! Take a few minutes to get the water out of your hair before you go anywhere or you could find yourself with some unfixable problems.

After you blow dry, make sure to toss on a hat, scarf, or whatever else you’ve got for added protection. Make sure you blow dry first, though, as a hat on wet hair can be even worse than the winter winds.
