Winter Haircare to Keep Your Hair Soft and Manageable

December 31, 2021

During the winter months, your hair needs extra care to keep it moisturized and healthy when heated indoor air and low humidity work against your best efforts to keep your hair soft and manageable. It’s easy to keep your hair looking great with these easy winter hair care tips from the pros at Anna’s Salon Elite!

Get a good hat. Hats are a must for keeping warm outside in the winter – and they’re also a great way to keep your hair protected from the harsh conditions. A good-quality hat is an investment, so look for features that will protect your hair as well as keep you warm, such as a silk liner, which will help reduce friction and tangles.

Trim regularly. It may be tempting to just stay inside when the weather is cold, but keeping your trim appointments with your Anna’s Salon Elite stylist is even more important now. Regular trims keep split ends away, and when heated indoor air dries out your hair, it’s important to keep away anything that could cause breakage.

Avoid hot showers. While a hot shower may feel incredible, turn down the heat just a bit when it’s time to rinse. Any heat – even hot water – can result in dry hair that’s frizzy, harder to style, and full of static. Bonus tip – the hot water can dry out your skin as well, so it’s best to dial back the heat.

Use a humidifier. When you turn on the heater, the warm air feels great. But it’s also evaporating moisture from the air. Invest in a good humidifier and you’ll notice the difference in softer hair and skin.

Change up your styling habits. There are lots of incredible styles you can choose that let you air-dry or mostly air-dry and skip those heated styling tools. Avoiding those sources of heat gives your hair one more advantage to fight against damage. Ask your expert Anna’s Salon Elite stylist to give you an easy-care haircut for the winter.

Stay inside when your hair is wet. Going outside with wet hair can cause damage and breakage, and neither of those is acceptable when you’re caring for your hair. Give yourself time for your hair to dry before heading outside. If you’re pressed for time, use a professional-quality heat protector, then blow-dry.
