Winter Hair Care Tips

By International hairdresser Raymond Robinson

The frizz of Summer has gone, here comes Winter STATIC!

All hair types will become a bit static-y in Winter because of the lack of moisture in the air. After the sun has finished with my clients’ hair I treat their parched sun-bleached tresses to an intensive moisture treatment followed by a gloss – clear or coloured – to seal and silken the hair before the dry cold air hits.

Deep Hydration Treatments

A great tip for clients with wavy or thicker hair is to divide their hair right down the centre of the head to create two side ponytails, then from the ends twist an oil or serum all the way up to about three inches from the scalp. That way the tips of the hair will get more of a coating (and the roots will get less, which will look greasy). This creates a barrier against the Wintery elements, much like moisturiser acts on the skin so that it won’t dry out. Leave it in for at least half an hour for a serious dose of hydration.

PAUSE on putting that hat on!

After blow-drying the hair, let it cool for about ten minutes or else you risk flattening the warm roots onto the scalp and ending up with serious hat hair.

Keeping it Smooth

On dry hair, spray a natural hold hairspray on a bristle brush (round or flat) and smooth it from roots to ends. This will also help to block out the elements.

If you spend a bit of time giving your hair some love it will repay you by looking gorgeous all Winter long.
