5 ways to weather-proof your hair for winter

Combat the harsh effects of cold weather on your hair with our top tips…

 

We want our locks to look amazing all year round, but the cold of winter can take its toll on our hair. Icy temperatures, rain, and blustery winds outdoors combined with the dry central heating indoors mean the scalp is more prone to dehydration, resulting in dryness. Luckily, you can outwit the elements by treating your tresses to a weather-proofing routine – the moda hairdressing team bring you their top tips…

 

1. Keep washing to a minimumtina - moda
Salon Director Tina says “If possible, try and limit yourself to

washing your hair just two or three times a week to prevent it

from drying out in the cold. This minimises the amount of heat

styling in your routine, which can be extremely harsh on the hair,

especially in the winter”.

 

2. Use a sulfate-free shampooBev team moda
 moda salon manager Bev recommends “Sulfate is a very

common ingredient in shampoo, but it can cause problems

for damaged hair as it strips beneficial oils… Instead, invest

in a shampoo free from sulfate and as many chemicals as possible”.

3. Choose your conditioner carefullyHarriet team moda
Senior Stylist Harriet says “It’s also important to invest in a

really rich, thick and moisturising conditioner – pick one that

contains fatty acids and humectants, such as soy protein and

panthenol. These ingredients help attract and retain moisture in the hair. Here at moda, we have some great conditioners

from TIGI Copyright, ask us which type is best suited to your hair type”.

 

4. Avoid hot showersLauren moda hairdressing Bristol
Lauren says “It’s tempting to turn your shower up to full blast

when it’s freezing outside, but this can damage your scalp –

and your skin, by stripping it of moisture. Instead, keep

showers and baths to ten minutes and make sure the water

is mid-to-lukewarm”.

 

5. Avoid ponytailsLibby team moda
Libby who has just passed her NVQ level 2 Hairdressing says

her top tip would be “weather-proof your hair for winter by

wearing your hair down as much as possible will prevent the additional breakage that a bobble creates. If you do wear a ponytail, try to wear it at different heights each time to avoid too much pressure in one area”.
