Winter Hair Care Tips from Suzanne’s Hair & Beauty Salon in Coventry
The cold winter months can be harsh on your hair so we’ve brought you some top tips to help you winter-proof your locks.
Your hair is constantly trying to cope with different temperatures as you move from the warmth of your home to the chilly outdoors. This can dry out your hair and lead to split ends and breakage.
Top Tips For Healthy Hair This Winter
TIP 1: Have an in-salon deep conditioning treatment once a week
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 like our amazing OLAPLEX treatment or our wonderful keratin hair smoothing.
TIP 2: Avoid over washing 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: Try not to use heating appliances on your hair
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 Suzanne’s Hair & Beauty Salon.
TIP 4: Dry your hair before venturing outside
Make sure your hair is completely dry before you go out into the cold air. The cold air will dry out your hair and make it more likely to break. Add further protection by hiding your hair away beneath 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
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?
