Winter can be tough on your hair. The cold weather, windy days and rain can leave it looking lackluster and dry. But there are ways to take care of your locks without breaking the bank! Follow these tips from us here at Salon Tonic to keep your hair healthy during winter:
You’ve heard this before, but it bears repeating: if you want to keep your hair healthy and growing longer, trimming is an important part of the process. Not only will a good trim help make sure that all of your strands are at the same length so they don’t get tangled up or tangle each other, but it will also make styling easier when you want to use heat tools like curling irons or flat irons. And if there’s one thing we know about beauty products (and life in general), it’s that less is more! So take some time out for yourself—and consider getting those scissors ready!
A hydrating shampoo and conditioner is one of the best ways to hydrate your hair. They’re formulated to help keep your scalp happy, while also adding moisture back into the strands of your hair. The best part? You don’t need to utilize them each and every day! Just dampen your hair before lathering up with one of these products—you can even do this as you get ready in the morning if you want—and then rinse out at the point when you return home from work or everyday life. If there are any stubborn drips left behind on your head after rinsing out (which will happen if you don’t follow our tips), rub them gently between your thumb and index finger… but not too hard! That sort of thing could damage those follicles we just took care of so nicely by washing off excess oils from earlier this week.
Deep conditioning is a great way to treat your hair, especially during winter months. Deep conditioners can be found at the drugstore or salon, and they’ll help keep your strands feeling healthy and shiny. You should take a deep breath at least once a week—but don’t worry if you’re not able to do it every day! Just make sure you’re always trying out new products on your strands so they stay protected by conditioning treatments like this one from Aveda that are made specifically for those who prefer natural ingredients over chemical ones.
Dry your hair gently. If you have access to a towel, take it and wrap it around your head as if it were a turban, then squeeze out excess water from the strands of your hair by patting them with another towel or using an old t-shirt.
Avoid rubbing your hair with any more force than necessary to remove the moisture that remains in its core. This will only cause damage and breakage over time, so try not to do this unless absolutely necessary (like when drying off after swimming).
Use a wide-tooth comb instead of just running one through each section at once—this will help distribute natural oils throughout each strand as well as making sure they’re evenly coated with product throughout their length before styling begins.* Blow dryers should always be set on low settings; high heat can damage both human bodies and electrical sockets alike!
If you’re like most people, your hair is probably in pretty good shape. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t benefit from a little extra care. Here are some winter hair care tips that will help keep your strands healthy and looking fabulous all year long:
Don’t wash your hair every day. Shampooing every day strips away natural oils from the scalp, which can cause dryness and breakage over time if left untreated. If you do need to wash your tresses more frequently than once per week, try switching up between shampoos with different formulas each time—for example, try an oil-based formula one week and an herbal one another week so that both types of cleansers aren’t used twice in quick succession (which could strip away even more moisture).
Avoid using heating tools like curling irons or straighteners too often either; these devices heat up air around our heads at high temperatures which causes friction between hairspray residue on them as well as other products applied within reach–and this friction causes fizziness! Instead focus on blow drying instead (using lower temps.)
Silk pillowcases are the best for your hair. Silk is a natural fiber that’s incredibly soft and breathable, which makes it perfect for keeping your hair healthy and silky-smooth throughout the night. If you sleep with a normal pillowcase, you’ll probably end up with knots in your hair every morning (and who has time to deal with those?). A silk pillowcase will keep the strands from getting tangled so they don’t get snagged by any of those other things—like sheets or blankets—that can cause breakage when we’re sleeping on our backs or sides.
Silk also provides great protection against allergens like dust mites and mold spores as well as bacteria that may have gotten trapped in between fibers during manufacture (this isn’t something most people think about). Since these allergens are common causes of skin irritation while sleeping at home, using this type of fabric will help prevent them from causing irritation while resting peacefully at night!
You don’t need to run out and buy one right away; you can simply keep it in your bedroom, bathroom and kitchen until winter weather arrives. If you live in an area where it gets cold enough that the wetness of your skin is uncomfortable (and you don’t want to spend money on moisturizer), then using a humidifier will help keep your skin from drying out so quickly when the air is dryer than usual.
Protecting your hair from the elements is essential for keeping it healthy and beautiful. You should always wear a hat when you go out, as well as a scarf or any other covering that keeps your hair away from wind and snow. When not wearing hats, make sure to wrap up in layers of scarves or shawls before going out so that you don’t get too hot or cold when walking around outside. Another way to keep yourself warm during winter months is by using an electric blanket (or two) if there aren’t any heaters available within reach; however, be careful not to overheat yourself! Finally, do not use any products containing alcohol in them (such as hairspray) since they can freeze onto strands easily leading them down a slippery slope towards fizziness!
Boar bristle brushes are one of the best options for curly hair. They’re great at detangling, distributing oils and working on wet or dry hair—all in one brush!
The bristles are made of boar hair, which means they have a firm but soft texture. This makes them perfect for smoothing out kinks and helping to distribute products evenly throughout your curls. If you have long or short hair, this is also an ideal tool because it can be used on both types of locks with equal effectiveness.
Getting a trim every 6-8 weeks is an easy way to keep your hair healthy and looking great. And if you’re worried about going through the hassle of finding an appointment with a hairstylist, there are plenty of ways to get that done at home!
If you want some tips on how to do it yourself, check out these tutorials:  . If you’ve never trimmed your own hair before, don’t worry—we’ve got plenty of helpful guides on our site so that when it comes time for your next trim (or two), we can help guide you through each step along the way.
We hope this article has given you some valuable tips on how to keep your hair healthy during winter. Many of the above tips are things that we should all do anyway, but they’re especially important when it gets cold outside. In addition, we recommend making sure that you have a humidifier in your house if possible—it’ll help prevent dryness and breakage!
