Keep Hair Moisturized 

Healthy Winter HairTo keep your hair moisturized and healthy during winter, avoid using a hairdryer too often. Ideally, it is always good to let your hair dry naturally. If you are using a hairdryer, don’t over dry your hair as it will leave it frizzy and damaged. Try to set your hairdryer on the ‘cool’ mode as it is gentler, although it might be a little time-consuming.

a hair conditioner is a must, Apply a suitable conditioner each time you wash your hair, focusing only on the strands of hair, avoiding the scalp. This provides a shine to your hair and prevents it from breakage. Consistently hydrating hair ensures hair does not dry out and reduces the risk of hair breakage. Please to your Johnson Blythe hairstylist for further information on the best hair care products for your hair type.

Prevent Flaky, Itchy Scalp During Winter

Healthy Winter HairIn extreme weather, be it winter or summer, it is essential to look after your scalp to prevent itchy scalp or irritation. Moisturise your hair once a week with a hot oil treatment to promote a healthy scalp and nourished hair. Some natural oils that work particularly well include coconut oil, avocado oil and almond oil.

Applying a natural oil to the scalp also ensures it is well hydrated with essential moisture and nutrients. 


Adopt a Healthy Diet

Healthy Winter HairHealthy hair foods can help you achieve better, stronger, shinier and thicker hair from the inside out. By following a healthy, balanced eating plan, get hair that is lustrous shiny and resilient, and a mane you have always dreamed of. Eat the correct balance of nutrients and minerals to supply hair with all that it needs to remain shiny, lustrous and strong.

Proteins are known to enhance and strengthen hair strands – Greek yoghurt, eggs and cheese are great sources of protein. For healthy hair follicles, opt for foods rich in unsaturated fats such as salmon and avocado,  that are rich in omega3-fatty acid and protein.

Trim Hair to Beat Split Ends In Winter 

Trim your hair! It is essential to refresh your haircut regularly in order to get rid of split ends. Irrespective of how well you take care of your hair, you cannot entirely escape split ends. The constant brushing of hair on woollen hats in winter can also cause split ends. Aim to have a trim every six to eight weeks, as this will promote healthy hair and hair growth. To avoid split ends, come to our Hertford hair salon for your regular haircut.
