If you’ve been getting the signs from your hair that it needs some extra TLC, you’re not alone! In the winter, our hair can suffer not only from the cold, winter air but also from the dry indoor heat. At Rizzieri Salon, we see many of our clients coming into the salon with dry, brittle, frizzy hair. So, we’ve put together some tips for protecting your hair in the winter and keeping it look healthy in between your salon appointments. Not only can this be done with trims and treatments in the salon, but also with professional salon-quality hair products.
Shampoo less often, but condition frequently. The natural oils in your hair can get depleted with washing your hair too often and rinsing in hot water. When you do need to shampoo your hair, typically one to two times a week, use a deep moisturizing shampoo to help you retain the nourishment in your hair. Rinse with cool water to help preserve those essential oils and to seal the cuticle.
It is good, however, to condition your hair regularly with a moisturizing conditioner so that the moisture your hair loses in the winter, is consistently replenished. If your hair feels limp or dull in between washings, you can use dry shampoo until it’s time to wash your hair again.
Use a weekly hair masque. A weekly deep treatment masque such as the Oribe Moisture & Control Deep Treatment Masque will work to replenish moisture and revitalize brittle hair while effectively sealing the cuticle to smooth frizzy, damaged hair and strengthen your hair to restore shine and elasticity.
Visit Rizzieri Salon regularly. Trimming your hair every four to six weeks and indulging in a salon deep conditioning treatment, will keep split ends to a minimum, help stop breakage, and will allow your stylist to address any concerns you may have so that your hair stays healthy, manageable, and shiny all winter long.
Eat healthily and stay hydrated. Eating a well-balanced meal and nutritious snacks will help your hair by giving it the nutrients it needs to stay soft, supple, and glowing. Too much junk food or fast food can leave your hair dull and lifeless. We all know that drinking enough water each day is good for you! But did you know that it also helps your hair and skin? When you are dehydrated, your body essentially steals the moisture and nutrients from your skin, nails, and hair to transfer them to more vital body organs. Make sure you’re drinking your needed water each day and it will show in your hair!
