Winter hair is without a doubt, the toughest to maintain. Between cold weather outside and dry, hot air inside, hair can be more prone to split ends and breakage in the winter. That’s why winter hair care is so important – we need to keep our locks feeling healthy and looking vibrant!
It can be difficult to know how to treat hair in winter whilst catering to your specific hair type. So we’ve collated all the winter hair care tips you need to prevent damage and keep your locks looking fabulous all year round. 

Finding the right winter hair care products

Much like skincare, it’s important to switch up the products you use from summer to winter. The best hair products for winter are the ones that’ll give your hair back the moisture it needs. 
If dry hair is causing an outbreak of frizz, try our Miraculous Recovery Shampoo.  Formulated with anti-damage technology, this is one of our best shampoos for cold weather. Pair this with our Frizz Ease Miraculous Recovery Deep Conditioner. This wonder product rescues distressed, damaged and frizzy hair, visibly repairing dryness in just one use.

If frizz isn’t your main concern and you’re just looking to combat the lack of moisture, try a winter hair treatment like our Hydrate & Recharge Deep Soak Masque or Detox & Repair Masque. The former gives your locks an intense boost of moisture whilst the latter revitalises severely damaged hair. You can also check out our piece on the best hair masks for your hair type to discover our full selection of hair masks and see which one is right for you.

Treating your dry scalp in winter

Not only can the colder weather and indoor heat cause hair dryness in winter, but it can also make your scalp dry. We all take hotter showers in the winter to warm up quicker, however this can really dry out your scalp. If you are wondering how to treat a dry scalp in winter, the key is to use extremely moisturising products.

Try making  your showers slightly cooler and use a moisturising shampoo and conditioner, like our Hydrate & Recharge Shampoo and Conditioner.

Perfect your winter curly hair routine

Curly hair is prone to dryness at any time of year, but practising curly hair care in winter is essential.  If you take one thing away from our tips on how to take care of curly hair in winter, it is that curls need hydration. Without this, your curls will abandon bounce for frizz.

We always recommend our ultra-hydrating Frizz Ease Dream Curls Deep Conditioner to intensely nourish and detangle curls, followed by our Frizz Ease Extra Strength Serum to lock in that moisture.
