Healthy Winter Hair

Tips for Healthy Winter Hair from ZIGZAG Hair Studios in Joondalup

The weather has a significantly damaging effect on hair during both the summer and winter seasons. It is particularly worse in winter as most people do not give attention to their hair. In the winter months, both the cold outside and the dry heat when indoors can severely damage your hair strands, resulting in hair breakage.

In winter, a bad hair day can become a few terrible hair months – from frizz to split ends, static electricity to hat hair. To have a strong, healthy hair in the winter months and throughout the year, here are a few precautions to take recommended by the hair experts at ZIG ZAG hair studios in Joondalup.

Prevent Flaky, Itchy Scalp During Winter

As the weather gets colder, this can cause your scalp to peel and become itchy. While this is usually only temporary, it is still a problem you do not want. Your skin is not the only part of your body that suffers dryness in winter due to the dry air and indoor heating, you scalp does too!

Applying a natural oil to the hair ensures it is well hydrated with essential moisture and nutrients. Do ensure the oil is right. At ZIGZAG Hair Studio in Joondalup we stock only the very best hair products, perfect for your everyday hair care and styling needs.

Prevent Dull, Dry & Damaged Hair In Winter

To keep your hair glossy and healthy during winter it is important to prevent dryness. It is common for many of us to spend much of our time in centrally heated rooms during winter.  So, it is a no-brainer that our hair becomes dry, brittle and grows split ends during the winter months.

As the temperature approaches zero, the air gets drier, thus affecting the moisture in our hair. Our hair becomes annoyingly dry, especially for those with curly hair, which often has less moisture by nature. It is therefore important you are giving your hair as much moisture that is needed. Consistently hydrating hair ensures hair does not dry out and reduces the risk of hair breakage.

Too much heat and friction can also disrupt the hair structure, whilst roughening and damaging the cuticles in the process. Smooth cuticles reflect light better and make hair look shinier, unlike rough cuticles that leave us with dull-looking hair. If you can tolerate the cold, rinse your hair with cold water, this helps the cuticles to stay flat and close, which makes them shiny.

Diet also plays a significant role in combating dull hair, so ensure your diet is getting you all the minerals and vitamins your hair needs – in particular,  A, C & D, protein and omega 3. 




Trim Hair to Beat Split Ends In Winter 

Irrespective of how well you take care of your hair, you cannot entirely escape split ends. Your daily care routine such as washing and combing do cause some minor wear and tear. The constant brushing of hair on woollen hats in winter can also cause split ends. The surest way to deal with split ends is getting a regular haircut. To avoid split ends, come to the Joondalup hair salon for your regular haircut.
