Smooth Away the Winter Frizz with Deep Conditioning Treatments

February 9, 2018

For many women, winter gives us a case of the frizz – the constant exposure to dry, indoor air can have this effect. Conditioning is one of the most vital steps in your hair care routine, and regular deep conditioning throughout the winter can help keep things smooth. Here’s how:

To understand the effects of conditioner on your hair, we need to look at each strand at the molecular level. The outside layer of hair, called the cuticle, is made up of overlapping rows of cells that cling together to protect the inner layer, the cortex, from damage.

Overexposure to heat can damage the cuticle and cause these cells to separate. The surface becomes rough, so hair tangles easily and appears dry and frizzy.

This is where a good deep conditioning treatment comes to the rescue. Its ingredients bind the cuticle cells back together, smoothing out the surface and restoring protection to the cortex. Deep conditioning treatments strengthen your hair, improve elasticity to prevent breakage, infuse moisture, restore natural oils stripped away by shampooing, protect the cortex from damage, and add luster and shine.

Regular conditioning is important for all hair types, even oily hair. The trick is selecting the right product for your individual hair type. Your stylist knows your hair well and is your best source of information about hair care products that are best suited for your hair type. It’s important to use the right products every day to help keep that fresh-from-the-salon look between your styling and deep conditioning appointments.
