Winter Hair Style and Damage Protection Tips for Women

October 26, 2009



Just because winter days are dark and gloomy doesn’t mean your hair has to be! Your hair is full of vibrance no matter what season. Why not make it fun and fabulous? While some hair styles are suitable for summer do’s, your hair needs special attention during cold weather. The dry and cold winter can be very damaging to your hair. Hair easily becomes dry during this time of year from the dry indoor heating and the dry cold weather outside. Some hair styles can reflect an unnatural ora or seem out of place. Your hair texture varies from season to season; leaving a sticky or dry feeling when you run your fingers through it. Proper preventative care is needed to be taken during this seasons to ensure that your hair does not get damaged.

Don’t worry, we have a solution! Below are a list of helpful tips you can practice to keep your hair safe this winter including glamourous styles suitable for all hair lengths.

Winter Hair Care Tips

1. Wear a scarf, hat or cap to protect your hair from the cold and wind. Make sure the cap is loose enough so you don’t loose circulation to your scalp.

2. Use a conditioner daily.

3. Once you have your hair moist, lock in the moisture by running your hair through cold water, this will also give your hair an extra shine.

4. You risk breakage when you go outside with your hair wet. Your hair will freeze if it’s cold enough outside.

5. Limit your use of “hot” items on your hair such as a blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons. If you need to use hot hair styler, use a lower temperature setting. Try Hot Tools Ceramic Series Hair Stylers. Ceramic radiates far-infrared heat that quickly penetrates the center of the hair shaft, exposing hair to less heat, preserving its natural moisture and luster.

6. If you need to use a “hot” item use a leave in conditioner before using the item on your hair. What is leave in conditioner? Leave-in conditioner is a fairly self-explanatory hair care product. Unlike conditioners for your hair that you might use in the shower, leave-in conditioner is applied after you shower, and is left in the hair until the next washing. Many hair conditioners are fairly dense or contain oils, and you may notice that they’re difficult to wash out of the hair to get that squeaky clean feel. Leave-in conditione tends to rely not on oils, (though some do use oil) which could make the hair look greasy, but instead use products like glycerin, which can help calm tangled hair or impart a little moisture to dry hair.

7. Avoid taking hot showers or washing your hair in hot water, use warm or cool water instead, the heat can dry out and/or damage your hair and skin.

8. Remember: Hair products that have the word, “Replenish.” It is made to moistureize your hair.

9. Try using a dry shampoo if you need to wash out your hair, one dry shampoo you can use is baby powder, simply sprinkle some onto your hair and use a comb to comb it off.

Hot Hair Styles for Winter:

Volume: Adding volume to your look adds drama and balances well with more layers of bulky clothing and winter wear. Root boost sprays and volumizing shampoos can quickly add volume to a great style, while layered hair styles add textural volume or a vintage beehive hairdo can be a fun style with plenty of lift.

Bangs: Hair styles with bangs are popular in the winter because they draw attention to the eyes, frame the face, and minimize the winter pallor of the skin. Sideswept bangs can be dramatic and fun, while full cut bangs are a classic look that wears well in any season.
Long Hair: Long hair – curly, wavy, or straight – is always popular in the winter because it wears well over bulky clothes and under winter hats while adding elegance to any look. If you don’t already have long hair, you can consider hair extensions for a fast and fresh look. Flipped or layered ends, great accessories, or sleek sedu hair styles are all great long looks.

Tapered Bob
Bobs: Bob hair styles are favorites in winter because they are quick and easy to care for and can create lovely options for shorter hair. Contemporary bobs may have heavily tapered tips for exotic flair, while a deliberately mess bob is a carefree and sexy look.
Shags: Shag hair styles are also favorite winter hairstyles with shorter lengths. The length, layers, and texturizing of the shag can vary, and adding lowlights will create depth and dimension in the style.
Razors: Razor hair cuts are particularly popular in winter because they add cutting edge drama to a look with minimal effort. The messy texture of the style demonstrates a bold, confident personality well suited to such a bold season.

Hair Styles to Avoid:

1. Avoid Blonde! Blonde hair can make pale skin look washed out and pallid.

2. Sun-kissed hair highlights – No sun to create them.

3. Frosted hair styles that also occur naturally in the sunlight; using these styles in the winter emphasizes that they’re not natural.

4. Darker, richer colors such as sultry brunette hair or subtle hair lowlights shades are more suitable in winter and can be just as fabulous and stunning as lighter looks.
