Winter is a pretty full-on season for our hair. It’s constantly weather-beaten by wind, rain and snow not to mention the constant layering of products we slather on to keep it hydrated and frizz-free. As party season approaches and the nights draw in, we think its the perfect time to treat your locks as you mean to go on with some much-needed TLC!
Get your vitamins
Take Vitamin C to aid collagen production and strengthen the capillaries that supply the hair shafts. You can also take iron tablets to help with hair loss if you find this gets worse over the winter months.
Eat for healthy hair
Level up your diet to make sure that your hair is getting all the nutrients it needs to repair itself. Leafy greens such as kale and spinach promote healthy growth, while healthy fats like almonds help reduce inflammation and keep your scalp in tip-top condition. Also, try to eat oatmeal for breakfast to improve hair shine.
Try our Grapefruit Hair Remedy for seasonal dandruff. A gentle scalp massage using this citrus-scented, coconut-infused oil acts as a natural cleanser to remove product residue and keep dandruff at bay.
As winter sets in, the dry scalp issue is oh so real. As well as using our Grapefruit Hair Remedy, keep hair washing to a minimum. This will help with itchy, flakey scalp and keep hair soft and shiny.
Try a cold rinse
If you can stand it, rinse your hair in cold water instead of hot. This will close the hair cuticles leading to shinier hair that’s frizz-free.
Minimise heat styling
Using heat products on the daily can lead to dry, brittle, damaged locks. Why not opt for waves instead? Simply apply your favourite salt spray to damp hair in the evening and braid loosely. Allow to dry overnight and remove the braids to reveal natural, heatless waves that last for days!
Mask it up
Use a deep conditioning mask once a week for a deep cleanse. Our Amla Hair Remedy strengthens and encourages growth with the help of natural oils such as Coconut, Avocado and Argan. Massage into the scalp and leave on overnight for maximum impact. Afterwards, wash as usual to reveal smooth, hydrated, glossy locks.
Protect your hair
When you’re outside remember to wear a hat to minimise weather damage. You should also try to avoid tying your hair up too tightly as this can lead to breakage (like we said, a loose braid is your friend this season). Before styling use a protecting spray to create a barrier and minimise any heat damage.
