Keep hair moisturized in Winter

Keep hair moisturized in WinterIs it possible to keep hair moisturized in winter? The short answer is, yes! Even here in Colorado where it can be extremely dry during our winter months, it’s still possible to keep your hair looking and feeling like you live in the tropics. Here are some tips and products to keep your hair moisturized thru the cold and dreary days of winter.

Deep condition your hair – not only at the salon but also at home. Doing this at least once a week will go a long way towards keeping moisture in your hair. Here at Serenity Salon we recommend Masque Magistral by Kerastase. Masque Magistral is an amazing product as it quickly and efficiently supplies your hair with a very intense direct application of moisture. We’ve had many clients try this product for the first time and come away not believing the difference in how their hair looks and feels after just one application.

If possible, try to avoid using heat on your hair. For those of you that use daily heat to style or to speed up your morning routine, this can be a tough tip to follow. However, limiting the amount and duration your hair is exposed to heat can greatly enhance your hair’s natural vibrancy and hydration. Try to incorporate more heat-less styles. If you must use heat, make sure to use a heat protectant such as Kerastase Nectar Thermique. Using a product like Nectar Thermique will provide a barrier to protect your hair up to 450 degrees!

This last tip is one that not too many clients seem to know about. Try investing in a dry shampoo. Hot showers and blow dryers can strip your hair of its natural oils. Using a dry shampoo such as Redken Pillow Proof will help your hair retain moisture. Here at Serenity, we recommend adding a dry shampoo to your weekly routine to replace possibly one or two wet shampoos. You’ll likely notice a difference in the way your hair looks and feels after just a few weeks of incorporating a dry shampoo.

While winter is here – your hair doesn’t have to look dry and neglected. With just a few tweaks to your routine, your hair will remain looking healthy, radiant and vibrant thru a cold and dry Colorado winter. Our stylists love giving hair advice 🙂 Stop by Serenity today to chat with a stylist or to pick up one of the products we’ve mentioned. We’re sure your hair will thank you!
