Cold weather is here, the heat is on, and we all know how rough it can be on our hair and skin. What can be done to avoid that dry, dull, and lifeless look? Here are a few simple solutions to keep your hair healthy and skin radiant.
- Cold weather can take a toll on your hair and scalp making it dry and susceptible to breakage. In addition, the loss of moisture may leave your scalp feeling tight and itchy, not to mention those embarrassing flakes. To counteract this, use a hair Mask to add hydration and strength. For added smoothness and to tame any fly-away hairs, finish with an oil to leave your locks feeling softer and lighter. Our choice is Redken All Soft Mega Mega Mask and All Soft Argan-6 hair oil. Ask your hair professional which products are right for you.
- Winter can have your skin feeling tight, dry, and flakey. It is best to exfoliate one to two times a week. We recommend Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant to leave your skin glowing and flake-free. Followed by a moisturizer such as Dermalogica’s Intense Moisture Balance and your skin will thank you.
- You might be tempted to turn up the heat when taking a shower on those frigid days but stick to cool or lukewarm water instead. Hot showers strip moisture from your hair and skin and make matters even worse.
- While always good advice, drinking water is just as important in the winter as the summer. You may be more inclined to drink coffee or tea but both contribute to dehydration in the hair and skin. Make sure to drink plenty of water, your body will thank you for it.
These 4 tips are vital to keeping the integrity of your hair and skin this winter and will pay off in the future. When the snow begins to melt and the weather begins to warm, you’ll be prepared with healthy hair and skin for spring!
