Winter is a trying time for your hair. The temperature level can be extremely low, which also exposes your hair to harsh environmental conditions that make maintaining and protecting your hair doubly difficult. Hence, it is important that you have the essential products to aid in the process of keeping your hair healthy and nourished during winter time. At the same time, these products can fix any hair problem that you might be suffering during winter time.
According to hair care experts, there are five essential hair care products that must be in your kit throughout winter:
During winter, it is recommended that you reduce the amount of time you spend on washing hair. But there are a lot of women who are unable to skip daily shampoo. For this purpose, you need to invest in a dry shampoo so you can freshen up your hair without having to wash it with shampoo. It serves the same function as a regular shampoo but because it is made of a non-liquid formula, you do not need water to rinse it off.
Frizz and static are the most common hair problems during winter. Hence, you need to stock up on smoothing serum for winter to ensure that you can keep strands well-behaved and frizz-free. Aside from the cold winter air that can dry up your strands, the fact that women wear hats or scarves (often made from knit fibers or wool) can create static and cause hair to fly up when you take off these head gears. A smoothing serum coats the hair shaft to ensure that it does not react to friction and that it comes with a glossy finish, as well.
In addition to static and frizz, dry scalp and dandruff is another fairly common issue during winter. Make sure you have a scalp treatment product on hand to treat the issue. Focus specifically on finding a moisture-rich scalp treatment in order to maintain moisture on your scalp and fight off flaking or itching of the scalp.
Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner
A hydrating shampoo and conditioner must always go hand in hand when you want to keep your hair healthy during winter. Heated indoor air can dry up your hair fairly quickly. You should take advantage of the moisturising qualities of these hair products to fight off dryness in your hair and scalp. If you can, try to get regular deep conditioning treatment as well.
This might be a surprising pick for some but it is actually very helpful as part of your winter hair care routine. But a good thermal protector can prevent more damage on your hair if you heat style it, as well as the drastic change in temperature from indoor to outdoor air (or vice versa). At the same time, this product can help seal in moisture to keep your hair looks and feels healthy.
