As the cold weather sets in, bad hair days seem imminent for anyone who wasn’t blessed with perfect, silky-smooth hair. But don’t fret, here at CLIQUE Mag, we’ve got your winter haircare covered with our tips and tricks and favourite products for those chilly winter days.
Treat yourself: Treat your hair to a deep-conditioning treatment once a week (we love Sunday pamper nights) to replenish the moisture that your hair loses in the cold winter air. Treatments like the Davroe Replenish Jojoba Creme Treatment ($24.95 from Davroe Hair Wellness) will help give your extra strength and shine all winter long.
Keep hair washing to a minimum: Your hair produces natural oils that keep it healthy, and by washing your hair frequently, you are stripping your hair of these oils. Obviously, anything that strips your hair of oils should be used sparingly, thus, you should try to keep your hair washing to 2-3 times per week.
If you suffer from oily hair, try dry shampoo to get you through your second and third-day hair. We love Tony and Guy Cleanse Dry Shampoo ($15.99 from Priceline)
Get regular trims: This one is pretty obvious because you can’t make dead hair ‘healthy’. Pay a visit to your local salon and get a trim every six to eight weeks for optimal hair health.
Avoid heat: Your hair is already dry enough during winter, using heat tools just exaggerates this and makes your hair more brittle and damage-prone. Instead of styling your hair with heat, try an up-do, or opt for a beanie (the extra warmth is a bonus). This also means not using excessively hot water when washing your hair! Always rinse your hair with cold water after washing for effortlessly smooth, shiny hair all year long.
