Ever notice that as the seasons change your hair becomes less manageable, more damaged and frizzy? This issue is easier to solve than you think, and we’re here to talk you through how to alter your hair care routine seasonally for happy healthy hair all year long.
Why Should You Change Your Hair Care Routine Seasonally?
As you are experiencing life, you are exposing your hair to a number of elements throughout the year as the seasons change. While warm weather can bring sun damage and humidity, the cold weather can dry out your hair causing damage too. It is essential to change your hair routine based on external conditions in order to keep your locks happy and healthy. We advise paying particular attention to your hair when the weather starts to change and look out for any signs of moisture loss. If you start to notice your hair drying out, this is when you should start slowly using more moisturising products and building up to your winter hair care routine.
What Effects Does The Changing Seasons Have On Your Hair?
When the weather gets cold, you are exposing your hair to harsher conditions. Switching from the cold, dry air from outside to a warm interior setting sucks the moisture out of the hair, leaving it dry, frizzy and prone to breakage. Other weather conditions such as wind can also affect the hair. Short term, wind will tangle the hair leading to snags, knots, and overall less manageable hair. long term, your hair constantly tangling and the hair cuticles rubbing against each other can lead to split ends and breakage.
Taking all of this into account, without proper management your hair will be left fragile and severely lacking moisture until spring time.
What Products Should I Be Using For The Colder Weather?
Moisture is the key to keeping strong healthy hair. I know we recommend using moisturising products all year round, but this is especially important in winter! In summer if you go too heavy on the conditioning product, it can leave your hair feeling weighed down. As fall approaches and you start to notice your hair feeling drier, this is the time to either introduce some new extra moisturising products into your routine or up the frequency of your existing hydrating products.
