Winter is here! Will your hair withstand the oncoming dryness? The harsh cold winter can be very damaging to your hair. This season is the most rigorous, and it is your hair’s number one enemy. If you do not start preparing ways to protect your hair now, you could potentially face some bad hair days. Think hat hair, static hair, split ends, brittle strands of hair, and dry frizz. Yikes!

Before winter is in full swing, read these tips and see how you can include them into your hair care regime. Also, check out the hydrating products in the photo gallery.

Prevent Dry Hair

Use a regular conditioner daily

Limit your time under a blow dryer

Use a leave-in conditioner before using a blow dryer or curling iron on your hair

Avoid taking hot showers or washing your hair in hot water. Use warm or cool water instead

Avoid shampooing your hair too often

Try using a dry shampoo, like baby powder, if you need to wash out your hair. Simply sprinkle some onto your hair and use a comb to comb it off

Prevent Breakage

Don’t go outside with wet hair. Your hair will freeze if it’s cold enough outside and may break

Prevent Static

Use a fabric softening dryer sheet and rub it lightly on your hair. It will remove the static

Using a natural boar bristle hairbrush with a wooden handle can also reduce static

Prevent Hat Hair

To cut down on hat hair, pull longer locks into a high pony tail, or push short hair straight back before putting on a hat

Add Moisture, Hydrate

Use hair products with the word “replenish” on it

Use hot oil solutions. Try a natural hot oil solution like jojoba hot oil treatment for your hair

If your hair tends to become too dry during winter, try a hair repair mask

Use a thick and heavy leave-in deep treatment conditioner for once or twice a week
