Winter conditions are extremely harsh on both your hair and skin. This is caused by the damp conditions, cold temperatures and central heating, off of which tends to make our hair fly-away, frizzy and extra dry.

To combat all of this, you need to maintain your hair using good quality products. I recommend using a richer shampoo, a hydrating conditioner and applying a treatment once a week.

Treatment Tip
For our fine haired ladies, if you’re worried about overloading your hair, apply treatment to damp hair and then sit in a steamy environment e.g. bathroom or sauna/steam room for 20 minutes. Shampoo out, then condition normally.

I recommend Tigi’s Serious Conditioner with a shampoo to suit.

Always use a large tooth comb and always comb hair from the bottom and for coarse, tangly hair and always use a leave-in conditioner spray.

Style using a light oil (e.g. Wella) and apply only a small amount to lengths and ends avoiding your roots. This can be used before or after styling.

If using hair straighteners, I recommend always using Tigi’s Heat Protector.

Following this stratergy will ensure a healthy glossy head of winter hair!
