Easy Hair Hacks for Healthy Winter Hair - D'Ametri's Salon

We're already more than halfway through fall, and your hair may already be showing the effects of the cooler, drier air. As we get closer to winter and temperatures and humidity continue to drop your hair will only become drier without intervention. Now is the time to update your hair care routine to head off that winter dryness and keep your hair looking healthy and manageable all through the coming season.

Give Your Scalp An Oil Massage

In the summer an oily scalp can be a problem because of the high humidity, but with dry winter air zapping your hair’s moisture your scalp may not be able to produce enough oils to meet the demand. The results can be a dry, flaky scalp and parched, frazzled hair. Ask your stylist to recommend a hair oil specifically for your hair type and gently massage it into your scalp once or twice a week. Allow it to stay on overnight and then shampoo in the morning.

Shampoo Less Often

Hygiene is important, but frequently shampooing your hair is not the only way to keep it fresh and clean. Over shampooing hair in winter strips it of its natural oils and leaves it dry, brittle, and susceptible to damage. Instead of shampooing daily use a gentle clarifying shampoo 2 to 3 times per week. If your hair is especially oily a dry shampoo can be used to freshen your hair in between your shampoo days.

Condition Often

While you may be opting to skip the shampoo a few days a week, you should never skip the conditioner. Giving your hair a quick rinse in the shower and then conditioning it is another way to keep your hair clean and fresh while also nourished and moisturizing. If your hair is exceptionally dry you may consider adding a daily leave-in conditioner as well.

Treat Wet Hair With Care

Your hair is most fragile and vulnerable to damage and breakage when it's wet. To protect your hair in its most delicate state there are three things that you should not do. When it's cold out don't leave the house with your hair wet, and don't go to bed with a wet head. You should also avoid brushing while your hair is wet due to the risk of breakage.
