Winter Hair Tips for All Hair Types
The coldness of the winter months can wreak havoc on your precious strands. Split ends, brittleness, and dry frizz are just a few of the undesirable effects that a cold environment can yield. However, the even bigger culprit is indoor heating—which is essential unless you’d like to walk around wearing a parka. Nonetheless, there are several ways to protect yourself from the harsh elements this winter, heat included! Here are some of our favorite winter hair tips:
As simple as grabbing a tablespoon of the extra virgin olive oil you keep on your counter, this treatment is a must! Simply apply to damp hair and work into your strands and then wrap your head with a hot towel. Let sit for 15 minutes and remove. The oil will nourish and repair hair damage while also helping to seal in moisture. Use as often as necessary!
Deep Conditioning Treatments
Deep conditioning treatments like the “Rescue Me Hair Mask
” are fantastic because they restore essential vitamins and nutrients to your locks, while replenishing and locking in moisture for longer periods. A simple 5-10 minute treatment on towel-dried hair is enough to leave your hair looking luminous and silky throughout.
Throwing your hair into a bun or a fishtail braid not only looks great, but will protect against split-ends and shedding caused from additional manipulation of the hair. Many of us tend to “finger comb” our hair throughout the day and this can cause increased breakage, something that happens even more often during the colder months!

Washing Your Hair Less
Last, washing your hair less will help to preserve the moisture in your strands by letting your hair’s natural oils keep intact for longer. Worried about having oily roots? Don’t fret. Let No H20 Volumizing Dry Shampoo
