Hair Care During Winter at Fresh Lifestyle Salon & Spa, Islington & Blackheath
The cold winter months can play havoc with your hair so now is the time to winter-proof your locks.
The combination of indoor heating and cold weather outside can result in dry hair that is prone to split ends and breakage which is why the Fresh Lifestyle Salon team have come up with some top tips to help.
TIP 1: Have a weekly in-salon deep conditioning treatment
Dry and brittle hair needs an injection of moisture. You can buy some good conditioners over the counter, but if you’re looking for longer-lasting results, have an in-salon treatment.
TIP 2: Avoid washing your hair too much
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. A blast of icy cold water will add a little extra shine to your hair!
TIP 3: Cut down on the use of heating appliances
Cut down on the use of hairdryers, styling wands and tongs because these can dry out your hair and cause it to break. If you have to style your hair, smooth some heat protection cream through it first. Split ends love to be treated with a frizz serum or, even better, have your hair trimmed at Fresh Lifestyle.
TIP 4: Dry your hair thoroughly before going outside
Make sure your hair is completely dry before you venture 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 hiding it away beneath a hat or scarf. Silk scarves are a brilliant way of protecting your hair and your hairstyle should remain pretty much intact underneath it!
TIP 5: Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables
We all know now that we should be eating at least five servings of fruit and vegetables a day for a healthy diet… but did you know that the vitamins in your 5-a-day will also help your hair to become shinier and stronger?
