Felt the chilly breeze round your neck this morning? That's a sure shot sign that winter is on its way. While bundling up with hot chocolate can seem nice and cosy for your senses, your hair care routine needs some winter lovin' too. So if you're wondering how to change your hair care routine for the cold months, these 5 hair care tips are all you need to lead the way.
1. Make conditioning a priority
Think really hard and tell us the last time you conditioned your hair. Was it yesterday, last week or so far back that you don't even remember? Although important, conditioning is often forgotten somewhere between more glamourous hair styling. But it's crucial to give hair a shot of moisture through the cold months. So don't miss out on it.
2. Scrub your scalp
Just as your face and body accumulates dead skin cells during the winter, so does your scalp. The best way to deal with it is by using your fingertips and a clarifying shampoo weekly to thoroughly clean the scalp and leave it free of buildup and dead cells.
3. Serum first
Before you step outdoors, make sure you generously apply serum all through the lengths of your hair. Not only will serum give it a silky, smooth finish, it'll hide signs of dryness with ease and provide a barrier for your hair from the drying climate.
4. Skip a wash
Yes, we actually said that - go ahead and skip your hair wash and only do it every alternate day instead. Washing your hair every single day can strip the scalp of its moisture and remove those much needed natural oils from it; which can leave your hair dry and frizzy.
5. Oil always
Every week, treat yourself to a hot oil head massage. Oil is perfect to nourish the hair naturally and strengthen the strands for whatever damage winter has in store.
