Four Hair Care Tips for Winter

As much as we don’t like it, winter is fast approaching! Many of our clients at our hairdressers in Hitchin ask us: “What is the best way to look after my hair during the winter months?”.

Whilst there’s certain things you should be doing to take care of your hair all year round, winter can be especially tough on your hair. That’s why we thought we’d put together four fabulous tips to help keep your hair in great condition this winter.

Here goes…

1. Protect your hair when you go outside.

The winter elements can really take their toll on your hair. If you expose your hair to them less, the less damage they can do to your hair – simple! There’s a few options for how you can do this: wear a hat, wrap a scarf around your head, or even simply put your hood up. Now, we know what some of you are thinking – what about hat hair. There’s a really simple thing you can do to avoid hat hair. Take a silk scarf and wrap it around your hair before putting your warm woolly hat on, it reduces the “hat hair effect”.


2. Get regular trims.

Regular trims at your hairdressers in Hitchin is the answer to most hair problems! Your hair becomes much dryer in winter, which can cause it to become brittle and encourage split ends to form. We recommend you book in at your hair salon in Hitchin for a trim every six to eight weeks to keep your ends looking fabulous!


3. Don’t go outside with wet hair.

We’re probably not the first to tell you that going outside with wet hair is a bad idea in the winter, but you’ve probably heard that it causes you to get a cold. That’s true, but going outside with wet hair in the winter can also damage your hair. Moisture in your hair gets combined with cold air, and this causes hair to become more brittle and dry.


4. Remember to replenish moisture.

Winter can cause your hair to dry up more rapidly than normal, so it’s important you proactively replenish its moisture. Keep washing hair to a minimum, as washing hair can cause your hair to dry out. Consider using a moisturising shampoo and conditioner when you do wash your hair. This will help replenish that moisture that is lost by the winter elements. It’s also worth considering treating your hair once a week to a deep conditioning treatment. Our stylists at our hairdressers in Hitchin can help you find the perfect Goldwell and KMS California products that will help you with this.


We hope these tips help you look after your hair this winter. If you would like any further advice on how to look after your hair during the winter months, feel free to ask our hair stylists at our hairdressers in Hitchin who would be happy to help you.
