Here are my top tips for looking after your hair this winter. Whether it’s intense cold, harsh winds or the effects of central heating, the winter months can play havoc with your hair. But don’t panic, there are plenty of ways you canensure your hair stays looking and feeling fabulous.
The best way to protect your hair is to prepare it in advance. Get your hair ready to combat the elements with an intense treatment, such as Revlon Orofluido Mask.
It’s really important to prepare your hair for the battle with winter weather. Revlon Be Fabulous Shampoo and Conditioner` keeps hair smooth, sleek and shiny, making it more manageable and protecting it from the elements for long-lasting results.
There are a number of ways winter can be cruel to your hair. A general lack of moisture in the air during cold weather can lead to hair becoming dehydrated and therefore more prone to frizziness, split ends and even breakage. Dry hair also appears duller and less healthy, and no-one wants that at the height of the party season!
Also doing it’s bit to dry out your locks is the unnatural heat of central heating and hot air conditioning. Both are enemies to healthy looking hair, leading to dehydration, static and split ends. So inside, or out, your hair is liable to take a bashing unless you take measures to protect and nourish it.
Often, it’s the measure we take to combat the cold that leads to lacklustre hair. Hats and scarves can lead to flat hair, and, depending on the material they are made from, add to the static!
There is a range of products you can use throughout the winter months to keep hair healthy and gorgeous looking.
To combat dryness and dehydration, I recommend Revlon Unique One Spray as it repairs, hydrates and seals in one, it’s great to keep in your handbag or gym bag for that quick fix. It’s like giving your hair a glass of water when it’s been exposed to the heating in your house and car, and the harsher elements outside.
To help combat static and dullness, I love Revlon Orofluido Oil which is infused with essential oils to add shine and keep frizz away. It keeps hair supple and creates a protective shield so that hair is not as exposed to the negative aspects of winter.
Finally, always apply heat protection when using an electrical tool on your hair. Revlon Double or Nothing Heat Protection Spray adds beautiful shine and protects up to 230c/446f keeping it in the best condition possible for when you head out into the cold.
And to combat that flat hat-hair, try spritzing some Revlon Volume Elevator Spray into your hair after towel or blow-drying for added volume.
Finally, never leave the house with wet hair during cold weather. The last thing you want is tiny icicles forming in your hair, weighing it down and potentially causing breakage.
Just because its cold outside, doesn’t mean your hair can’t look hot!
