It’s getting cold outside – and dull, dry hair is not a good look! But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered to keep your hair shining & healthy throughout the harsh winter months. Here are the do’s and don’ts to staying on top when it comes to caring for your hair in the wintertime. 

DO: 

  1. Commit to using hair masks to keep hair hydrated
    Hair masks are a great way to maintain hydrated locks. We recommend using the Keratinworks Stabilizing Mask. Leave it in for 10-15 minutes, and then rinse! Repeat a couple of times a month or as often as needed. Your hair is extra dry? Leave it in for up to 60 min for a superboost.
  2. Shampoo less often to help with dry scalp
    Does your scalp get itchy during winter time? You’re not alone: the cold weather tends to have drying effects on most skin types. Try to cut down on the amount of times you shampoo in a week to help keep the itching at a minimum! Try our Keratinworks Post-Keratin Shampoo. This shampoo is designed to clean and hydrate without using harsh chemicals (no sulfates, no parabens, no sodiums). It also contains proteins and natural nutrients to hydrate and protect your hair from the harsh, cold dry winter.
  3. Use leave-in conditioner to combat static
    With dryer hair comes more static. The best way to prevent looking like a Christmas tree is to use a leave in conditioner to lock in the moisture.
  4. Opt for a darker hair color this winter
    We’ve said it, and we’ll say it again! Winter air = dryer hair. This is why maybe sticking to a darker color that does not require bleaching the hair may be a more suitable option this winter.
  5. Pick the right winter hat
    Winter hats are cute, but not when they damage your hair. Coarser fabrics can split ends and cause breakage. SELF Magazine recommends going DIY and lining your hat with silk or satin.
