From hat hair to static electricity, split ends to dry frizz, when winter weather hits, a bad hair day can last an entire season. Hair typically gets 25 percent dryer during the winter. Even if you live in a moderate climate, you’re still susceptible to hair-raising changes as the seasons pass.

The environment can have some of the most damaging effects on hair in both summer and winter, but in winter it’s often worse because people generally don’t take as many precautions to protect their hair. Sun exposure (which can be as intense on a ski slope as it is on a beach) combined with blustery winter wind as well as snow, rain, and icy cold (which makes hair brittle and dry) can all come together to create some very bad winter hair days.

Even if you spend most of your time indoors, winter is still your hair’s enemy. Indoor heating can be something akin to spending an entire afternoon under a hair dryer. Honestly, it’s not quite as dramatic as the damage would be from that, but it certainly gives you an idea of what indoor heating can do to your hair. No matter what’s causing your winter hair woes, it is a fact the hair tends to become dry faster and have more breakage in the winter.


Here are 5 simple nourishing, replenishing and protective steps you can take for winter hair wellness ~

1. Make sure you are equipped with a high quality, salon professional shampoo and conditioner. The right shampoo and conditioner at this time of the year will help repair, seal and smooth your hair. A good hair mask is highly recommended once to twice a week for severely damaged hair. Davines SU/Mask or Davines Nounou or Minu Masks are wonderful for winter stressed hair.

2. Avoid over-washing your hair in winter and in the shower. Try to wash it over the sink or tub with warm to cool water. The pressure of the shower head and the hot water causes the formation of tiny chinks in the surrounding cuticle which adds to the problems of hair dryness and breakage.

3. Towel-dry your hair very gently as aggressive rubbing roughs up the cuticle that can lead to breakage.

4. Professionally prescribed styling products are a must to help protect the hair from thermal styling and the environment. “Layering” your hair products individually and combing each through thoroughly can help achieve added protection, texture and shine. Direct warm (not hot) air from the blow dryer down the hair shaft to encourage the hair to lay flatter.

5. Plenty of water and good nutrition that incorporates small portions of all the key food groups such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean protein sources helps to nourish and protect hair. Taking a quality-grad multivitamin with essential B vitamins (B6, B12, folate), essential fatty acids and adequate minerals can help dry, weak hair prone to breakage in the winter.

Welcome Autumn! Fall Hair Care

Autumn Hair Picture2As we begin a new season ~ Autumn rolls in grabbing our attention with exquisitely colorful leaves, brisk cool air and fabulous chilly weather fashions…. Unfortunately along with the beauty of the season comes unruly, lackluster, dry hair and scalp.

After summer hair care should start immediately to make sure your tresses welcome the cooler season looking shiny, bouncy, soft and restored. “Lightweight” products are great for spring and summer with the added humidity in the air, but a cooler climate calls for thicker ingredients that nourish & replenish hair. Your hair may seem drier as you increase the use of central heating throughout the winter & conditioning is the key. Conditioner such as Aquage SeaExtend conditioners and treatments or ABBA Moisture Conditioner helps to close the cuticle and seal in moisture.

Unless you live in an environmentally friendly city year round, the beginning of autumn is the perfect time to revise and update your hair care regimen. Call Denise at (216) 292-HAIR (4247) to have your personal regimen reviewed and updated today!
