Winter can take a toll on hair. Lack of humidity, need for regular heat styling and even headgear can cause static, dryness, breakage and more. Here, Pureology Colour Care Ambassador Natasha Sunshine shares her tips for keeping hair healthy and looking great all season long.
1. Keep a bottle of Evian spray in your purse. It comes in a mini size so it’s easy to lug around. A light blast of water can help with static or even hat head. Afraid of messing up your blowdry? Don’t worry. Do an all over light mist from about 12″ away, then smooth your flat palms over your hair.
2. Condition, condition, condition. You’ll want to go for a daily conditioner with extra moisture during our driest months. Plus, a once a week conditioning masque for five minutes will give you that extra dose of hydration your hair needs. Try Pureology’s Hydrate Conditioner and Hydrate HydraWhip Masque.
3. When it comes to styling, be sure to lock in moisture by using a leave-in conditioner and a deeply nourishing styler. Pureology’s MiracleFiller is a leave-in that will give you a dose of protein while hydrating the hair as well. Choose a wet/dry styler like Redken’s Argon-6. This incredibly light oil goes on wet and melts over the hair into a protective shine during blowdrying. You can add a couple drops after your style is complete for extra shine, nourishment and protection.
4. Stay away from too many hot tools. If you’re going to blowdry, skip the iron and vice versa. If you opt for the flat or curling iron, go to bed with a wet head and style in the morning.
