Look After Your Hair This Winter – Hair Care Advice From GREAT Hairdressing Salons

winter hair care, bury st edmunds hair salonThe cold winter months can be harsh on your hair so now is the time to give your hair some tender loving care.

Your hair is constantly trying to cope with different temperatures as you move from the warm indoors to the chilly outdoors.  This can dry out your hair and lead to split ends and breakage.

To keep your hair in tip-top condition the team at GREAT hairdressing have come up with some top tips for healthy winter hair.

TIP 1: Have an in-salon deep conditioning treatment 

Dry and brittle hair needs more moisture. You can buy some good conditioners over the counter, but if you’re looking for longer-lasting results, have an in-salon hair conditioning treatment.

TIP 2: Do not over-wash your hair

Keep your hair washing to a minimum.  Wash your hair two or three times a week rather than every day. If you can bear it, wash your hair in cool water rather than hot water as the heat will dry out your hair.

TIP 3: Reduce the use of heating appliances

Cut down on the use of heating appliances.  Hairdryers, styling wands and tongs can dry out your hair and cause it to break. If you have to style your hair, use heat protection cream. Split ends love to be treated with a frizz serum or, even better, have your hair trimmed at your local GREAT hairdressing salon.

TIP 4: Do not go outside with wet or damp hair

Make sure your hair is completely dry before you go outside into the cold air. The cold air will dry out your hair and make it more likely to break.  Give your hair further protection by wearing it under a hat or scarf.   Silk scarves are a great way to protect your hair and your hairstyle should remain pretty much intact underneath it!

TIP 5: Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables

Eat at least five servings of fruit and vegetables a day for a healthy diet… and because it’s good for your hair too, making it shinier and stronger?
