It’s that time of year again… time to trade in the shorts and sundresses for sweaters and scarves. With winter, comes cold temperatures and low humidity, leaving our hair in a fragile state, meaning it’s also time to trade in our summer hair care routine for a routine that will keep your hair healthy and strong no matter what winter may bring. Here are my "Winter Hair Care Tips":
1.Conditioning: During the dry winter months, there is little moisture in the air and the hair and scalp tend to dry out more easily. After every shampoo, put a deep conditioner in your hair and leave it in for a minimum of 3-5 minutes. One of Patrick’s personal favorites is “Super Reconstructer by KeraCare” , it repairs dry, damaged , brittle hair and volumizes hair while producing a soft, silky texture.
2. Roller Setting: If you have medium to long length hair, instead of using a flat or curling iron, set your hair with rollers. The heat from any hair appliance , if used on a consistent basis will leave your hair dry and brittle and more likely to break off and damage.
3. Silk or Satin Scarf: For any length hair, be sure to tie your hair down at night with a silk or satin scarf. It will help the hair retain its moisture during the night hours. Also, instead of a wool scarf for outside, be sure to stick to satin or silk. Wool and cotton both have the tendency to snap your hair.
4. Aestalance Lustre Spray: We swear by the Aestalance brand and the "Lustre Spray" product. During the winter months, using this product daily will your hair looking healthy, shiny and full of life.
Follow these four simple steps and you'll 'spring' out of winter, with beautiful and healthy hair.
