Winter Hair Tips

Tips for Healthy Winter Hair from Inspire Beauty Hair Salon in Catford 

As the winter season kicks in, bad hair days become more common. From frizz to split ends, our hair gets more stressed due to the harsh weather. To have strong, healthy hair in the winter months and throughout the year, here are a few precautions to take, which are recommended by the hair experts at Inspire Beauty Hair Salon in Catford.

Prevent Hair Breakage In Winter

In the winter months, both the cold outside and the dry heat when indoors can severely damage your hair strands, resulting in hair breakage. As the temperature approaches zero, the air gets drier, thus affecting the moisture in our hair. Our hair becomes annoyingly dry, especially for those with curly hair, which often has less moisture by nature. To keep your hair glossy and healthy during winter it is important to prevent this dryness.   Consistently hydrating hair ensures hair does not dry out and reduces the risk of hair breakage.

With an OLAPLEX treatment, you can ensure your hair gets the repair it needs.  is designed to repair the hair’s structure which can be broken during the permanent hair colouring and lightening process and through years of heat and sun damage.

After just one treatment, OLAPLEX can dramatically improve your hair’s condition.  It can be applied during the hair colouring process to eliminate hair breakage AND as a stand-alone treatment on even the most over-processed hair.

Trim Hair to Beat Split Ends In Winter 

Too much heat and friction can also disrupt the hair structure, whilst roughening and damaging the cuticles in the process. Smooth cuticles reflect light better and make hair look shinier, unlike rough cuticles that leave us with dull-looking hair. If you can tolerate the cold, rinse your hair with cold water, this helps the cuticles to stay flat and close, which makes them shiny.

Irrespective of how well you take care of your hair, you cannot entirely escape split ends. Your daily care routine such as washing and combing do cause some minor wear and tear. The constant brushing of hair on woollen hats in winter can also cause split ends. The surest way to deal with split ends is getting a regular haircut. To avoid split ends, come to our hair salon for your regular haircut.
