As the UK is struggling to cope with the cold weather, I thought I would give you some advice on how to have fabulous hair during these cold days.
As we are all wrapping up with our chunky jumpers have you noticed that your hair seems to be more static than usual?
Here are my top tips to avoid static;
- Wash your hair with luke warm water instead of hot
- Rinse with cold water to lock in moisture
- Using a leave in conditioner to protect and add moisture. One of my all times favourites for many years has been Sebastian Potion 9, I love this as it’s a wearable treatment so for time poor people like me, it’s quick and easy. You just apply and go.
- I read this one the other day and made me smile… put a tumble dryer sheet over your hair brush to remove static. It will make your hair smell nice too!
- Ionic hairdryer, both the ghd hairdryers have ionic technology to eliminate frizz and static. It also makes your hair dry quicker.
- Blow-dry your hair with a smoothing creme, they are packed with moisture and will also protect your hair. Sebastian have a lovely light weight product called SUBLIMATE CRÈME it contains a flexible polymer that forms a smooth film around hair to control frizz. It is applied as a finishing product, I tested this a while ago and it was lovely as I felt like I had nothing in my hair. If you prefer something to style your hair with try the ghd STRAIGHT AND TAME creme, it tames rebellious hair whilst calms, smoothes, straightens all in one.
Cold weather can dry and make your hair feel brittle, having the central heating on also dries your hair. Your hair and scalp needs more moisture in the winter otherwise it can become dry and itchy.
- Use a deep penetrating conditioner. I am a complete Wella System Professional fan. I have been using this for nearly a year now and my hair has been transformed. It is completely bespoke to your hair making this the ultimate hair treatments on the market.
- Use natural oils on your scalp as part of your routine. One of the best natural remedies is Coconut or olive oil, I have been recommending this to my clients for year. Mix this with a few drops of Ylang Ylang oil for the luxe version. Apply and shampoo out in the morning.
During the winter you also need to think about your diet, what you put in your body reflects on your health. For beautiful strong hair increase your intake of;
- Vitamins A,C & D
- Omega 3
- Lots of water
Protect your hair by wearing a hat, it will not only keep you warm but protect your hair and will allow you to stay Sassy! Finally make sure you get regular hair cuts. Split ends are not attractive any time of the year.
Love, Jo x
