How was everyone’s weekend?
Last week, I had the privilege to speak to celebrity hairstylist Kathy Herskovits to get her expert advice on how to deal with common Winter Hair Problems.
Check out these essential tips:
Wash Your Hair in Cold Water
Yikes! This one will be hard for me because I am always freezing. Kathy advises us to wash our hair with cold water because it is better for our hair as it seals the cuticle which is the outer layer of your hair making it look shinier and silkier. But anything extensively can be extremely harmful causing our hair and scalp to dry, lack moisture and even become brittle.
Dry scalp is very common in the winter. The dry air and blasting radiators, or heaters in our home cause your scalp to flake, itch and irritate.
To heal this problem try a hot oil treatment, like a tea tree. And you can follow up with a tea tree shampoo to remove all that oil,
Paul Mitchell has a great tea tree line. For those of you that have color treated hair use Aloxxi sulfate-free clarifying shampoo with color care complex & detox blend. It’s so good for your scalp!
Another common factor in the winter is dry hair. Moisturising is essential just like we moisturize our skin we need to moisturize our hair and the best way to do that is by doing treatments. A salon treatment mask once a month followed up with a home treatment mask once a week can avoid dryness in the hair.
Salon treatment masks are much richer. You can find a Kerastase salon they have this amazing Kerastase Fusio-Dose Booster treatments. “My favorite is the B3 demi-permanent conditioner treatment, its one of the only salon treatment mask’s that lasts up to 12 washes.”
Also washing your hair with oil infused shampoos can really help the dryness of the hair. Wella has a great collection called Oil Reflection.
We can’t forget our leave in conditioners. They are extremely important, creating a protective layer all around the hair. The Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream is a great product. If you want a more lightweight version try Onesta, Quench Leave-In Conditioner, or for color treated BB Lotion from Wella.
Winter is famous for dry air, making anything you touch to give you a zap of electric shock. Every time you pass a hairbrush through your hair, the strands rub together in a tango that breeds static. Dryer sheets can really help with hair static. One can rub them on hairbrushes and a comb. You can run them along the hair to eliminate those pesky flyaways. You can also keep the combs and brushes wrapped in dryer sheets in the wintertime to keep them static-free. If you are uncomfortable with the dryer sheets, you can spoil yourself and buy Bumble and Bumble, Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil.
