Winter Hair Care Advice From Inspire Beauty, Catford
The cold winter months can take their toll on your hair so now is the time to winter-proof your locks.
Your hair is prone to split ends and breakage as it tries to cope with different temperatures as you move from the warm indoors to the chilly outdoors.
To keep your hair in tip-top condition the team at Inspire Beauty have come up with some top tips for healthy winter hair.
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 conditioning treatment or go all-out with a long-lasting keratin hair smoothing treatment.
TIP 2: Avoid washing your hair too much
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: Reduce the use of heating appliances
Cut down on the use of heating appliances such as 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 cut at Inspire Beauty hair salon in Catford.
TIP 4: Dry your hair before leaving home
Make sure your hair is completely dry before you go outside into the cold air. The cold air will dry out your hair and make it more likely to break. Give your hair further protection by hiding it 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
Eating at least five servings of fruit and vegetables a day is not only healthy for our diet but the vitamins in your 5-a-day will also help your hair to become shinier and stronger.
